Tropical Depression 13E formed in the eastern Pacific early Friday 18 August 2017 and by 8pmEST became Tropical Storm Kenneth. Well offshore of West coast of Mexico, could become a hurricane soon, and eventually may turn more northward but no impacts to land expected.

Saturday 19 August 2017:
5amEST: Winds 40mph, moving WNW 16mph, pressure 1005mb.
11amEST: Winds 45mph, moving WNW 16mph, pressure 1003mb.

Official storm stats released at 5/11 am/pmEST from US National Hurricane Center (NHC) here: NHC

Closer-up satellite imagery/loops ( taken every 30-min, uploaded 25-min later): Closer Sat imagery

Overall Pacific regional sat imagery: Regional Sat imagery - Pacific

Track:


Intensity models say it has less then 60-hours to reach peak intensity:


Water temps will limit it's potential as it turns more northward and weakens this coming week (Storm located about where my fancy blue storm symbol is, temps in degrees Celsius...basically anything 27 or higher good for hurricanes, below that they weaken):
