Hurricane Kenneth has formed in the eastern Pacific Ocean, a rare feat for this time of year. Officialy the hurricane season ends on November 30.  Tropical Depression 13-E took shape Saturday afternoon and strengthened into Tropical Storm Kenneth about 24 hours later. During Monday morning, Kenneth became a hurricane. It is possible that Kenneth reaches category 3 status, a major hurricane, the next few days prior to eventual weakening over colder waters later in the week.

According to the National Hurricane Center, on 20 November 2011 Tropical Storm Kennethbecame the latest-forming named tropical storm in the eastern North Pacific basin since Hurricane Winnie formed on 04 December 1983.

No land masses lie in the projected westward path of Kenneth. However, shipping lanes will be threatened. As Kenneth continues to intensify, residents and vacationers along Mexico’s southwestern coast may notice an increase in wave action.

…KENNETH CONTINUES TO STRENGTHEN…
