Tropical Storm Rachel in Pacific Strengthens, No Threat to Land

By    |   Friday, 26 Sep 2014 06:07 AM

Expected to pose little threat to land, Tropical Storm Rachel was strengthening over open waters off Mexico's Pacific coast and may eventually loop back toward Mexico as a much weaker system.

The Associated Press reported the U.S. National Hurricane Center in Miami as saying the storm's maximum sustained winds Thursday morning were near 50 mph, and further strengthening was forecast.

Rachel, which reached tropical storm force late Wednesday, was centered about 455 miles south of the tip of the Baja California Peninsula and was moving west-northwest at 13 mph.

The forecast track would carry the storm a little further out to sea at just below hurricane strength, then loop it back toward the Baja peninsula next week as a fading depression.
