First Tropical Depression On Record During April Forms In Eastern Pacific South Of Baja

Tropical Depression One-E formed well south of Mexico's Baja California Peninsula on April 25, becoming the first April tropical depression and the earliest formation of a tropical cyclone on record in the Eastern Pacific Ocean.

The tropical depression tracked northwestward and did not threaten any land areas.

Dry air wrapped into this system on April 26 and conditions became unfavorable for further development. Tropical Depression One-E degenerated into a remnant low-pressure system by the afternoon of April 26.

This system was the first April tropical depression on record in the Eastern Pacific Basin in reliable records since weather satellites began regularly watching the tropics in the late 1960s.
