In early October, a tropical wave formed near Nicaragua. Barely moving until October 6 or October 7, the wave dumped heavy rain on the area, although damages or deaths, if any, have yet to be reported. On October 8, the wave became better organized as the National Hurricane Center increased the odds of development from the system. Then, later that day, the wave developed into Tropical Depression Sixteen-E, the sixteenth tropical cyclone of the season. On the morning of October 9, it became Tropical Storm Odile, while located southwest of Guatemala.

Before becoming a tropical wave, the precursor disturbance to Tropical Depression Sixteen-E dumped heavy rainfall on Nicaragua, although as of 2100 UTC October 8, 2008, any impact is unknown.

As of 8 p.m. PDT October 8 (0300 UTC October 9), Tropical Depression Sixteen-E is located within 25 nautical miles of 12.2°N 91.8°W, about 205 mi (325 km) west-southwest of San Salvador and about 395 mi (640 km) southeast of Puerto Ángel. Maximum sustained winds are 30 knots (35 mph, 55 km/h), with stronger gusts. Minimum central pressure is 1006 mbar (29.71 inches), and the system is moving WNW at 10 kt (12 mph, 19 km/h).
