IMAGES ARE TIME SENSITIVE!

Norbert has reached the mainland of Mexico after recently ripping though the Baja peninsula.  It’s strength is likely to diminish quickly but it will maintain tropical storm intensity for quite some distance into Mexico and could easily effect weather in west Texas and New Mexico early this week.  Notice that the storm is now elongated (oval, rather than circular).  The elongation is along the axis of wind shear which is depicted in the second image which was completed about two hours earlier than the first image.  So, the two images are not a perfect match-up but they are close.  It looks as though the storm is likely to continue traveling 40 to 45 degrees east of due north along the direction of winds aloft.
