4Nov18 - 1pPST/4pEST (Updates now are released 1-hour sooner because Daylight Savings time has ended. US National Weather Service runs on Zulu/UTC time which doesn't change their clocks).

Estimated winds 50mph(85km/h), moving N 6mph(9km/h), pressure 1001mb.

Tropical Storm Warning (winds 39+mph expected) for Punta San Telmo to Playa Perula, Mexico. Storm just close enough to shore to bring TS winds in. This will begin to fade and pull away from the coast sometime Monday.

Socorro Island in the possible path Tuesday / Wednesday but storm looks to be mostly fallen apart by then with high wind shear weakening it.
