 East Pacific
Storm Summary and Projection:
Hurricane Summary POSTED: August 21, 2014 11:25 p.m. Tropical Storm's Karina and Lowell and Tropical Depression 13 Tropical Storms Karina and Lowell are over the open waters of the eastern Pacific and pose no threat to any land. Both systems are on the edge of marginally cooler waters so strengthening, if any, will be limited. Lowell will head to the northwest over cooler waters this weekend while Karine tracks to the northeast and eventually into the wake of Lowell. This will cause weakening of the tropical cyclones over the weekend and it is not out of the question that Karina becomes absorbed into Lowell's larger circulation next week. Rough surf and dangerous rip currents along the southern coast of Baja California will expand northward and there could be an increase in swells and rip currents along the Southern California beaches this weekend. Tropical Depression number 13 has developed about 300 miles south of Acapulco, Mexico and it is tracking to the west-northwest at 14 mph. Environmental conditions favor strengthening and latest satellite supports this, so it should become tropical storm Marie early Friday. Further strengthening into a hurricane is expected over the weekend. It will track to the west-northwest and parallel to the coast of Mexico, but far enough offshore not to have any direct impacts. There are a pair of low pressure systems well south and southeast of the Hawaiian Islands. No imminent tropical development is forecast for either system. By Senior Meteorologist Bob Smerbeck
