Weather Underground Forecast for Saturday, August 16, 2014
Tropical cyclone development is not anticipated across the Atlantic Basin on Saturday, while the tropics will remain active over the eastern Pacific. In the eastern Pacific, Tropical Storm Karina is expected to strengthen as it moves westward. Karina is forecast to be upgraded to a category 1 hurricane, with wind speeds ranging between 74 to 95 mph (64 to 82 kts). This system will be located approximately 1,400 nautical miles west southwest of Cabo San Lucas, Mexico. In addition, an area of low pressure will be located roughly 1,000 nautical miles east southeast of the Big Island of Hawaii. This system will have a high, 60% chance to develop into a tropical cyclone as it moves slowly west northwestward. Monsoonal moisture will continue to initiate widespread showers and thunderstorms across western, central and southern Mexico, while the northeastern corner of the country will stay mostly clear of precipitation. Mexico City can expect afternoon and evening thunderstorms with a high of 74(F)/ 23(C). Cancun will experience sunny skies with a high of 90(F)/ 32(C).
