Tropical Storm Nadine Strengthens; Miriam Forecast to Weaken
Tropical Storm Nadine, which formed more than two weeks ago, became a little stronger in the Atlantic, according to the U.S. National Hurricane Center. In the Pacific, Miriam is set to weaken today.
Nadine was about 680 miles (1,095 kilometers) south- southwest of the Azores with winds of 60 miles per hour, up from 45 mph yesterday, as it moved southwest at 6 mph, the Miami- based center said in an advisory issued at 5 a.m. Atlantic Standard Time. Slow strengthening is forecast over the next two days, according to the notice.
Tropical Storm Miriam was about 395 miles west of the southern tip of Baja California, a peninsula in northwest Mexico, with winds of 45 mph, the NHC said in a separate advisory. The system is forecast to weaken.
Further south, the center is monitoring a system about 375 miles south-southwest of Manzanillo, Mexico that has a 50 percent chance of becoming a tropical cyclone in the next two days.
