 Hurricane Dora, tropical storm Cindy and tropical storm Bret forecast to weaken

Less than 24 hours ago, Dora had maximum winds of 155 mph, which is a borderline Category 5 hurricane. Since then, the storm has weakened to become a Category 1 hurricane with maximum sustained winds of 85 mph. Dora is forecast to weaken to a tropical storm this evening.

Dora is moving to the northwest at 9 mph, and is expected to remain offshore while paralleling the Mexican coast. This basic motion is expected to continue as the system weakens to a depression sometime over the weekend.

A tropical storm warning is in effect for southern Baja from Agua Blanca to Buenavista including Cabo San Lucas.



Meanwhile, in the North Atlantic, Tropical Storm Cindy is far out over the cool waters of the far north Atlantic. At 11a.m. EDT Friday, Tropical Storm Cindy is racing to the east-northeast at 26 mph, with maximum winds of 50 mph. The storm center is roughly 730 miles northwest of the Azores (near latitude 45.3N, longitude 37.0W). Cindy is expected to weaken and could dissipate in the next 48 hours.

Also in the north Atlantic, Bret has been weakened to a post-tropical cyclone, with maximum winds of 35 mph. The low’s center is roughly 375 miles north of Bermuda (near latitude 37.7N, longitude 64.2W) and is moving to the northeast at 21 mph. (EqeCat)
