 East Pacific
Storm Summary and Projection:
Hurricane Summary POSTED: August 19, 2014 4:41 p.m. Karina Moving West; Tropical Storm Lowell Well Offshore of Mexico The eastern Pacific Ocean remains active with Karina and Lowell both being tropical storms in the basin, but there will be little impact to land over the next several days. Tropical Storm Karina is a small tropical storm centered about 1,365 miles east of Hilo, Hawaii. Although Karina will be over relatively warm ocean waters over the next couple of days, wind shear will continue to hinder strengthening of the storm. Karina will slowly move westward, then drift to the northeast while the storm slowly weakens toward the end of the week. Karina will not pose any direct threat to land through late this week. Farther east, Tropical Storm Lowell is about 740 miles west-southwest of the southern tip of Baja California. There is plenty of very warm water surrounding it, but strong northeasterly wind shear is over the system. Satellite imagery this morning showed that the bulk of the rain and thunderstorms associated with Lowell is on the southern and western side of the center due to this wind shear. Strong wind shear is forecast to persist over the next several days. Despite the wind shear, warm water should be enough to slowly strengthen Lowell over the next day or so. Rough surf and dangerous rip currents will begin to impact the southern coast of Baja California during the middle of the week and expand northward by late week. There could be an increase in swells and rip currents in Southern California by the upcoming weekend. Elsewhere across the basin, 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, but the low southeast of Hawaii could bring an increase in showers to the Big Island later on Wednesday or Thursday.
