Tropical Depression 15E formed yesterday and has since strengthened and become Tropical Storm Linda, with winds of 40kts. Linda has a large mass of very deep convection over the LLCC and strong bands flanking it. Shear is moderate, but waters are very warm and moisture in the region of Linda is high. Therefore, despite the moderate shear, Linda is expected to strengthen and become a hurricane. A typical northwesterly track is expected off the coast of Mexico. This track will eventually take Linda over cooler waters south west of Baja California, and into a drier airmass. This will produce weakening in a few days time.

Linda has rapidly intensified overnight and is now a 75kt category 1 hurricane. There is a circular central dense overcast flanked by banding. Further rapid strengthening is expected over the next day or two, followed by weakening. Linda is expected to become a major hurricane before this occurs.

Linda has become a major hurricane with winds of 105kts. The storm has developed a small, well defined eye embedded in the central dense overcast. Linda is probably near peak as cooler waters are very near along with drier and more stable air.
