MINIMAL TROPICAL STORM ON 29 MAY AND MOVED SLOWLY WESTWARD DURING
ITS ENTIRE EXISTENCE.  ALVIN DID NOT INTENSIFY FURTHER AND WEAKENED
TO A TROPICAL DEPRESSION ON 30 MAY.  IT DEGENERATED INTO A REMNANT
LOW ON 31 MAY ABOUT 800 MILES SOUTH-SOUTHWEST OF THE SOUTHERN TIP
OF THE BAJA PENINSULA.

BARBARA ORIGINATED FROM A SLOW-MOVING TROPICAL WAVE THAT MOVED OFF
THE COAST OF CENTRAL AMERICA ON 24 MAY.  THE WAVE PRODUCED
DISORGANIZED SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS DURING THE NEXT COUPLE OF
DAYS.  ON 28 MAY...A SMALL AREA OF LOW PRESSURE FORMED A COUPLE
