1Jul18 8aPDT/11aEDT: Early Sunday morning newly formed Tropical Depression Seven-E (formed Saturday) organized enough to become Tropical Storm Fabio well South of the Mexico coast. Estimated winds 50mph, moving WNW 13mph, pressure 1000mb. No threat to land.

Conditions are optimal for possible rapid intensification...could be a Cat3 or so early this week (intensity guidance models):

But not likely to last long as cooler waters lay in wait (rapid weakening when hits that green color in the mid 20's temp Celsius):

And official 'cone map' from the NHC (cone only represents where center point of storm will go over time, and wind field (orange circle), and letter inside dot is if Major Hurricane (M) (means Cat3 or higher), Hurricane (H), Tropical Storm (S) or back to Tropical Depression (D):
