Storm Summary and Projection:
Hurricane Summary POSTED: October 2, 2014 4:43 a.m. Simon Strengthens Into a Tropical Storm The latest in a string of disturbances in the eastern Pacific became sufficiently organized early Thursday morning, strengthening into Tropical Storm Simon. As the storm gains strength over the next day or two, locally heavy rains will spread across coastal sections of Jalisco. Some flooding is possible, and mudslides cannot be ruled out either if heavy rain spreads far enough inland. In any case, the storm will gradually move away from the state today into Friday as it continues on a west-northwest heading. Preliminary track guidance hints at the possibility of the system turning to the right and slowing down over the weekend, potentially bringing some impact to Baja California. The good news is that Simon is not expected to strengthen significantly at this time; in fact, the storm may not become a hurricane. Additionally, the storm could bring a few showers and thunderstorms into the Southwest U.S. during the midweek period next week. The remainder of the basin remains quiet at this time, and no additional tropical development is expected over the next several days. By Meteorologist Randy Adkins and updated by Ben Noll
