APP ISSUES: FYI – The app is shut down for the time being so just go the mobile site on your phones browser, it does exactly the same thing and you can enlarge the live stream with a pinch. The powers that be won’t let me update the APP and re-submit it because they insist it’s too similar to the mobile site…. F’N Apple store messing with me! Sorry for the interruption in service!

Tropical Depression Gilma continues to struggle a as it pushes its way westward over the open waters of the Eastern Pacific an is expected to lose all tropical characteristics later today.
In addition to Gilma, we are monitoring two other areas for potential development over the next several days. The first is a broad area of low pressure which has been designated as Invest 93E. Invest 93E is located well off the southern coast of Mexico and is moving west-northwestward away from land. The system may gradually develop later this week as it is located in a zone of warm waters and low wind shear.
Meanwhile, the other area we are watching is an area of low pressure that is anticipated to develop later this week off the southern coast of Mexico. Environmental conditions would be conducive for development of this low by the end of this week and the upcoming weekend.
No other tropical development is expected across the central Pacific basin over at least the next five days.
For Monday morning the the song remains the same with knee to waist high waves everywhere.
