Juliette Moves Away From Baja Coast as All Warnings Are DroppedBrian K. Sullivan
Tropical Storm Juliette is ambling away from Mexico’s Baja California coast, where all warnings connected to the system have been dropped, according to the U.S. National Hurricane Center.
Juliette, with top sustained winds of 40 miles (64 kilometers) per hour, was 95 miles northwest of Cabo San Lazaro, Mexico, moving northwest at 18 mph, according to a center advisory issued about 2 p.m. New York time.
“Juliette should continue to weaken today as it moves over colder waters and the cyclone is expected to become a remnant low within 24 hours,” the Miami-based center said.
The system’s tropical storm strength winds, of at least 39 mph, extend 30 miles from its center. 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.
