Dean Remnant

The remnant of the storm that was once Hurricane Dean has crossed Mexico and has moved into the Pacific Ocean

In the picture above the remnant of Dean is the broad area of clouds circulating around the southern end of Baja California where the Gulf of California opens into the Pacific Ocean. The center of the circulation is just southeast of the tip of Baja California. The disturbance is not strong enough to retain the name “Dean”. If it were to regenerate to tropical storm or hurricane strength(not likely), National Weather Service procedure would call for giving the storm a new name and that would be the next in line from names for the eastern Pacific. At this point the name would be “Gil”.
