Storm Summary and Projection:
Hurricane Summary POSTED: September 30, 2014 2:36 p.m. Rachel Continues to Wind Down Rachel has weakened to a tropical depression as it remains nearly stationary over the open waters of the Pacific. Wind shear and dry air are impacting the storm, which is keeping any strong convection from forming near the center of the depression. Rachel will continue to weaken over the next 12 to 24 hours and will eventually dissipate completely later today. No direct impacts to land are expected from Rachel; however, there can be some enhanced surf and rip currents along the western coast of the Baja Peninsula. Elsewhere, a cluster of disorganized convection a few hundred miles south of the southern Pacific coast of Mexico may strengthen enough to become a named system within the next 24 to 48 hours. If a tropical depression or tropical storm forms later this week it would take a track to the west-northwest or parallel to the coast of Mexico. There are no other features that show the potential for tropical development over the next several days. By Senior Meteorologist Carl Erickson
