UPDATED INFO HERE CLICK ME
Two confirmed tropical storms. Neither is a threat to land. There is another area of disturbance that should also remain far far away from land. Tropical Storm Blas is expected to become a major hurricane by Tuesday (it was awed but things are changing rapidly) as it continues to head west (away from land). Yes, I am emphasizing “away from land” on purpose. 😊

Last image is a possible for location for Blas and the yet to be talked about system next Sunday. Such a non-issue at this time that I almost feel silly even posting about it.
