I’ve been speculating yet hesitating to really write it out, but there is a chance that Earle’s remnants add to the fuel already near the area of low pressure. I hinted at it last night.
This morning, Dr. Jeff confirmed the possibility in his blog. We ARE scheduled for rain early next week, it’s a matter of how much, and will we also have wind? As it stands NOW, the most we will see for winds is up to 20mph. Depending on which weather site you visit will tell you a totally different amount of rainfall expected.

TROPICAL WEATHER OUTLOOK
NWS NATIONAL HURRICANE CENTER MIAMI FL
1100 AM PDT THU AUG 4 2016
For the eastern North Pacific…east of 140 degrees west longitude:
The National Hurricane Center is issuing advisories on Tropical
Storm Ivette, located about 1200 miles west-southwest of the
southern tip of the Baja California peninsula.
1. An area of disturbed weather has formed near and to the south of
the Gulf of Tehuantepec. This disturbance is expected to move
west-northwestward and merge with the remnants of Atlantic Tropical
Storm Earl, and an area of low pressure is forecast to form near the
southwestern coast of Mexico over the weekend. Conditions appear
conducive for development, and a tropical depression is likely to
form early next week while the low moves northwestward toward the
Baja California peninsula.
* Formation chance through 48 hours…low…10 percent
* Formation chance through 5 days…high…70 percent
I think it’s best at this time, to let the images speak for themselves. It’s too early to know for sure how much rain we might get. I just … I don’t want to say the wrong thing. As soon as I catch up on some sleep (do you have cats? It’s like fur-ever having an infant sometimes) I’ll sneak some humor back into weather ~Jenn
EDIT: Hour after posted … at this time, long term forecasts by the pro’s computer models do not show the low pressure system mentioned below developing, much. Right now, the forecast models show the higher winds hugging the coastline of mainland. Just wanted to put that out there. Too soon to tell. Will update as info comes in.
Possible wind scenario for next Wednesday below.
