It has tracked toward the W-WNW as expected, and will reach the Mexican coast on Monday, perhaps as a tropical storm. However, given the current appearance and the lack of time before landfall, it could very well never make it beyond a depression. Tropical storm warnings are posted for the section of the coast that could be affected by tropical storm conditions should it intensify.
If named, it would be Danielle, and would also break the record for earliest formation of the fourth tropical storm.
