Tropical Storm Odile in Pacific May Be Hurricane Friday Night

By    |   Friday, 12 Sep 2014 10:45 AM

Tropical Storm Odile, drifting off Mexico's southern Pacific coast, could become a hurricane by Friday night and then take a more northwesterly track. Meanwhile, Tropical Storm Edouard formed in the far eastern Atlantic on Thursday but was expected to remain out to sea.

The Associated Press reported the U.S. National Hurricane center as saying Odile had maximum sustained winds near 60 mph. Its center was about 245 miles south of Manzanillo and was drifting west near 2 mph.

The center said the storm was predicted to remain well offshore through at least Saturday.

A tropical storm watch was in effect from Manzanillo north to Cabo Corrientes, and dangerous surf and riptides were forecast for that area within a day or so.

The U.S. hurricane center said Edouard, the fifth named tropical storm of the Atlantic hurricane season, had sustained winds of 40 mph early Friday and was centered 1,175 miles west of the Cape Verde Islands. The storm was moving west-northwest near 15 mph.

No coastal warnings or watches were in effect. Edouard was forecast to stay over the open waters of the north central Atlantic.
