AT 03AM FROM THE NATIONAL HURRICANE CENTER IN MIAMI...
TROPICAL DEPRESSION EXPECTED TO DEGENERATE INTO A REMNANT LOW LATER TODAY...

THE GOVERNMENT OF MEXICO HAS CANCELED ALL WATCHES & WARNING ASSOCIATED WITH TROPICAL CYCLONE OCTAVE.

Monday, October 15 2013 6:30AM MDT Tropical Depression Octave is moving across the peninsula and will be reduced to a remnant Low later today. At 6AM it appeared that the bulk of the precipitation has already moved northeast of Mulege into the Sea of Cortez.

The northern portion of the southern state of Baja California Sur received most of the rain generated by Tropical Cyclone Octave. From Magdalena Bay, on the Pacific side to Bahia de Los Angeles on the Sea of Cortez, Octave brought steady rain, heavy at times for almost 24hrs.

At 2AM Tropical Storm Octave is currently located near 25.5N 112.0W and is moving 25° at 04kts. Central barometric pressure is1004Mb and winds are 30kts with gusts to 40kts, making the system just short of tropical storm status.

Much of the southern 2/3's of the state of Baja California Sur has received a saturating rain which in many places will continue into tomorrow. Total rainfall amounts could be 3-7" in many places and even higher in some areas.

Watch for flooding of arroyos and temporary road closures. Mexico's Highway 1 is much less susceptible to these closures than in years past, but with these excessive rainfall amounts folks should be watchful for flooding in unusual areas as well as the normal ones.

On the bright side, this late season and profuse rain will keep the peninsula a beautiful, blooming green well into November!

This is not a difficult or terribly powerful storm folks, please take care and safe shelter and enjoy the furry of Mother Nature. We are going to get a heap of rain in the next 18-36hrs though...

Tropical Cyclone Octave is moving northeast into the Sea of Cortez and a rendezvous with the Mexican mainland. We will update graphics with the 9AM release from the National Hurricane Center, but text will not be updated until historic data is available.
