Tropical Storm Cosme forms in the Pacific

By GABRIELLE LEVY, UPI.com   |   June 24, 2013 at 4:41 PM   |   Comments

June 24 (UPI) -- The third tropical storm of the season formed in the eastern Pacific Ocean Sunday about 500 miles south of Manzanillo, Mexico.

The storm, Tropical Depression 3-E, strengthened into Tropical Storm Cosme and was expected to reach hurricane strength by Tuesday or Wednesday.

Cosme should move north and west, away form the Baja coast, but even if it did move east, colder water and drier air would sap it of any strength before it made landfall.
