Tropical storm Kiko, which has been picking up speed on the Baja/California peninsula, measured windforce at around 70 mph.
The tropical storm, say the U.S. National Hurricane Center in Miami on Sunday, was centered about 400 miles west-southwest of the U.S./Mexico peninsula.
On Monday, Tropical Storm Kiko was downgraded to Post-Tropical Cyclone Kiko, by the National Weather Service. They issued an advisory stating:
“Kiko becomes a remnant low… This is the last advisory.” They also described the storm as: “devoid of any significant convection… a shallow vortex embedded in weak low-level steering flow.”
Tropical Storm Kiko is expected to weaken further as the week progresses. No imminent threat to the coast is expected at this time, and no specific weather warnings have been issued.
