Diminished Threat To Mexico Coast From Tropical Storm Kay: US Forecasters

Diminished threat to Mexico coast from Tropical Storm Kay: US forecasters

MIAMI, (Pakistan Point News - APP -22nd Augst,2016) - Tropical Storm Kay strengthened slightly off Mexico's Pacific coast, but new projections on Sunday predict it will peter out without causing major damage, US forecasters said. At 2100 GMT Kay was about 360 miles (575 kilometers) southwest of the tip of Baja California, with maximum sustained winds of 50 miles (85 kilometers) per hour. Although Kay was somewhat stronger than it had been late Saturday, "weakening should begin on Monday," the Miami-based National Hurricane Center said.

The NHC added that by Tuesday the storm will likely be little more than a "remnant." Earlier forecasts from both the NHC and Mexican meteorologists had warned that Kay could churn up dangerous waves and pummel the Baja California region with heavy rain and strong winds. But in the latest NHC advisory US forecasters said there are "no coastal watches or warnings in effect" related to Kay.
