Marco comes and goes...

Yesterday morning, TD13 formed in the far south portion of the Bay of Campeche.  It was a small disturbance, but fairly potent for its size.  By 21Z yesterday, it was upgraded to TS Marco, the 13th named storm of the season, based on aircraft recon into the storm.  It intensified to 55kts and made landfall earlier today just north of Veracruz, Mexico.  Marco is now a tiny cluster of weakening thunderstorms over Mexico, barely recognizable as a tropical storm.
