I will from time to time recap previous storms.
Tropical Storm Ignacio (1997)
Tropical Storm Ignacio formed first as a depression in an area of disturbed weather on August 17. 12 hours later, it organized into a tropical storm. Ignacio's location of tropical cyclogenesis was further north and west of where most East Pacific tropical cyclones form. Steering currents pulled Ignacio north, where it encountered wind shear and cooler waters. Ignacio lost tropical characteristics August 19. They were then absorbed by a cyclone associated with the remnants of Hurricane Guillermo.
Ignacio's remnants moved north, bringing gusty winds to California coastal waters before dissipating. They caused rainfall as far north as the U.S. state of Washington. Thunderstorms caused a few power outages in central California. Other than those events, there was no impact.
Ignacio originated from a large low pressure area that was near the coast of Mexico on August 14.  The low began to organize on August 16 and on at 0000UT time the next day it was declared Tropical Depression Eleven-E. The depression showed strong bursts of deep convection, and became Tropical Storm Ignacio 18 hours after forming. Initially, Ignacio became better organized. However, it remained weak. Ignacio peaked with winds of only 40 mph and a peak pressure of 1005 mbar
Southerly wind shear increased, while Ignacio entered colder water. As a result, it weakened to tropical depression status that afternoon.  Ignacio transitioned into an extratropical depression 24 hours later. The remnants were absorbed by a much larger extratropical cyclone while just offshore California on August 20. This was the same low that also absorbed the remnants of Hurricane Guillermo four days later.  Ignacio's track is unusual since it came very close to hitting California.
Preparations and Impact
No watches or warnings were needed for Ignacio.  However, it still impacted land. Ignacio brought heavy rain to the entire West coast.   The highest rainfall total was 2.72 inches (69 mm).  It produced record rainfall in the Pacific Northwest and eventually impacted British Columbia.   Winds were gusty.  The power when out in Central California, but no other damage was reported. Severe flooding was recorded along US Highway 97 with a debris flow estimated at 0.5 mi and 7 ft deep.
