TropicsWACH: What a difference a week makes

Columbia (WACH/NHC) -- One week ago we were flirting with a record for most time in hurricane season withouth a hurricane.

Since the beginning of last week we have seen two storms reach hurricane status, Humberto and Ingrid.

Humberto was the first storm to become a hurricane for the 2013 Atlantic Basin hurricane season.

Humberto weakened over the weekend to a post-tropical cyclone, but regained status as a tropical storm as of the 11:00 a.m. EDT advisory.

Humberto is expected to remain a "storm for the fish," staying well out to sea which is why there are no tropical advisories in effect for this storm.

Ingrid, the second storm to become a hurricne this season, has weakened to a tropical storm after making landfall between 7:00 - 8:00 EDT this morning near La Pesca, Mexico.

Tropical storm warnings remain in effect from La Cruz northward to Rio San Fernando.

Ingrid will continue to weaken as it pushes more inland, but flooding will remain a concern from the heavy rain the storm will produce in parts of Mexico.
