Tropical Storm Greg Lingers In Pacific


MIAMI, Aug. 20 (UPI) — Greg was clinging to tropical storm status Saturday harmlessly over the Pacific Ocean, U.S. weather forecasters said.

The National Hurricane Center said in its 2 p.m. PDT advisory that Greg had sustained winds of about 40 mph as it churned about 710 miles west-southwest of the southern tip of Mexico’s Baja California. The storm was moving to the west-northwest at about 9 mph.

No land masses were endangered by its presence, the hurricane center said.

Greg was expected to weaken into a tropical depression Saturday night and become a post-tropical remnant low Sunday. The storm’s track was to take a gradual turn to the west-southwest Sunday and Monday.
