Juliette Becomes a Tropical Depression in the Pacific

Aug. 29 (Bloomberg) -- Juliette has weakened to a tropical depression in the Pacific Ocean off the coast of Mexico’s Baja California, according to the U.S. National Hurricane Center.

It was located 130 miles (209 kilometers) northwest of Cabo San Lazaro, Mexico, with top sustained winds of 35 miles per hour, the center said in an advisory at about 5 p.m. New York time. A system must maintain winds of at least 39 mph to be classified as a tropical storm.

“Additional weakening is forecast during the next 24 hours,” according to the Miami-based center. “Juliette is expected to become a remnant low tonight or early Friday.”

It is the 10th storm of the eastern Pacific hurricane season, which runs from May 15 to Nov. 30.

Forecasters are tracking two areas of disorganized thunderstorms in the Atlantic. One of the clusters off the coast of Africa has a 30 percent chance of becoming a tropical system in two days, while the other in the central Atlantic has a 10 percent chance, according to the hurricane center.
