Tropical Storm Nadine Moves Southwest; Miriam Loses Strength
Tropical Storm Nadine, which formed more than two weeks ago, was moving south-southwest in the Atlantic, according to the U.S. National Hurricane Center. Miriam was losing strength in the Pacific.
Nadine, the 14th named storm of the Atlantic season which runs through to November, was about 530 miles (830 kilometers) south-southwest of the Azores, with winds of 45 miles per hour as it moved at 5 mph, the Miami-based center said in an advisory issued at 5 a.m. Atlantic Standard Time.
Tropical Storm Miriam was about 430 miles west-southwest of the southern tip of Baja California, a peninsula in northwest Mexico, with winds of 70 mph, the NHC said in a separate advisory. The system is set to weaken in the next two days.
Further south, the center was monitoring a system a few hundred miles southwest of Acapulco, Mexico, which has a 20 percent chance of becoming a tropical cyclone in the next two days.
