The Naval Research Laboratory and NHC have just upgraded 90L.Invest to Tropical Depression 26, which will soon be named Beta. Just unbelievable.

This may allow TD.26 to track more North, instead of moving into Central America. This system certainly bares watching and could be Tropical Storm Beta in 24-48 hours. A threat to the Gulf Coast and Florida is certainly possible with Mexico looking more likely. Here is the model for this system. Back to work we go....
