Tropical depression 19 is out there in the Atlantic, but it doesn't look like its going to be headed for land.

THE CENTER OF OTIS IS CURRENTLY FORECAST TO REMAIN WEST OR VERY NEAR THE WEST COAST OF SOUTHERN BAJA CALIFORNIA DURING THE NEXT 24 HOURS. HOWEVER...ANY MOTION TO THE RIGHT OF THE FORECAST TRACK COULD BRING THE CENTER NEAR SOUTHERN BAJA CALIFORNIA TODAY OR MONDAY.

Looks like Mexico has trouble from the other side. Tropical Storm Stan is hitting the Yucatan, and should gain stregnth in the Gulf, maybe to a Cat 1, by Wed.
