Tropical Storm CIMERON Now Located between the Philippines and Mainland China

Good News! Invest 97L has apparently dissipated. The storm cell was located in a west central location in the Gulf of Mexico, but the cell appears to have weakened to be of no concern. 

There is also good news concerning Tropical Storm CIMERON, now located half way between the Philippines and the China mainland. The storm is now spinning at its maximum expected strength of 45 MPH, but the wind gusts are now at 60 MPH. The storm should be at the same strength as it enters Guangdong province north of Hong Kong but should rapidly loose speed once on land and the storm should be downgraded to a tropical depression.  Cities from Quanzhou to the north and Shenzhen to the south should feel the effects of this storm, but it should be in the form of rain and wind and minor storm surge . The storm is moving in a forward direction at a speed of 18 MPH. 

Presently, there are no other storms of concern originating from the South China sea at this time, nor is there anything of any concern near the gulf of Mexico.
