Tropical Storm Kay in eastern Pacific

11:38 a.m. ET ET Tue.,Oct.5,2004


Buzz Bernard, Sr. Meteorologist, The Weather Channel



While the Atlantic Basin remains relatively quiet, Tropical Storm Kay has developed in the eastern Pacific. Kay, centered over 700 miles SSW of Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, is expected to strengthen only slowly as it churns westward. Another disturbance, located west of the depression and about 1200 miles SW of Cabo San Lucas, is becoming better organized and could blossom into a depression later today.


In the western Pacific, Tropical Storm Ma-on (50 mph) is moving northward through the Philippine Sea. Ma-on is expected to take a more northwesterly course shortly and perhaps strengthen to a minimal typhoon within about 18 hours. At least for the next couple of days, no land areas are threatened by the storm.


Closer to home, disturbed weather continues in the western Gulf of Mexico off the Mexican east coast from the Bay of Campeche northward. No imminent tropical development is expected in this area, however.
