 East Pacific
Storm Summary and Projection:
Hurricane Summary POSTED: August 23, 2014 7:34 a.m. Marie Now a Hurricane; Expected to Strengthen Rapidly Marie strengthened early this morning into a Category 1 hurricane over the open waters of the eastern Pacific. Marie will be over warm waters with low wind shear over the next 48 hours, which will lead to rapid strengthening of the hurricane. It will likely become a major hurricane within the next 24-48 hours. The good news is that Marie is expected to stay over the open waters of the Pacific as it moves parallel to the Mexican coast through the weekend. Rough surf and rip currents produced by Marie will impact the Baja Peninsula, but any other direct impacts to land are not likely. Elsewhere, Hurricane Karina and Tropical Storm 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 water, which will help to weaken the systems through the weekend. 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. An area of low pressure well southeast of the Hawaiian Islands will continue to track over the open waters of the Pacific Ocean. No imminent tropical development is forecast.
