Tropical Storm Turns Away From U.S.; Kristy, Lane Far Off Mexico

September 17, 2012

Tropical Storm Nadine, the 14th named system of the Atlantic hurricane season that runs through November, has turned east-northeastward and away from the U.S. and Caribbean.

Nadine was 675 miles (1,085 kilometers) southwest of the Azores with winds of 70 miles per hour, the Miami-based National Hurricane Center said in a 5 a.m. Atlantic time advisory.

Tropical Depression Kristy off Mexico’s Pacific coast is forecast to become a remnant low today. The system was 630 miles west-northwest of southern Baja California with winds of 35 mph.

Further west, Lane strengthened to a Category 1 hurricane on the five-step Saffir-Simpson scale, according to the NHC. It is 1,160 miles west-southwest of the tip of Baja, moving north- northwest and posing no threat to land.
