I know it's a Pacific storm.....it would just suck if it made the curve over Mexico and end up in the Gulf....It's too early for this.

 

Yeah but it doesnt become an Atlantic storm, its still a Pacific Storm if it crosses over. If you were refering to any threat from it, I doubt it.

Not refering to any threat. just something interesting especially since Hurricane season starts tomorrow and we already (even in the Atlantic names) got started.
