Tropical Storm Tina Loses Steam

14 Nov 2016, 2:28 pm

Earlier today, the National Hurricane Center downgraded Tropical Storm Tina to a tropical depression. Sustained winds have fallen to 35 mph. The storm is located 280 miles south-southeast of the southernmost tip of Baja California, Mexico in the Pacific Ocean.

Tina is having a tough time sustaining tropical status, as upper level winds have become stronger. This makes it difficult for thunderstorms to form around the center, even with the storm over warm water temperatures in the 80s.

By later tonight or tomorrow morning, Tina is expected to diminish further, down to a tropical low. The storm is expected to dissipate on Wednesday and is not expected to affect any land areas.
