TD Georgette moving across Gulf of California
MIAMI — Tropical Depression Georgette is moving across the Gulf of California in Mexico with little change in strength expected before making landfall.
A tropical storm watch is in effect early Wednesday for the coast of mainland Mexico from Huatabampito northward to Bahia Kino.
Georgette is located about 35 miles (55 kilometers) east of Loreto, Mexico, and is moving north near 12 mph (19 kph).
Meanwhile, far out in the Atlantic, Tropical Storm Lisa is moving slowly with maximum sustained winds near 45 mph (75 kph). Slow strengthening is expected over the next two days.
Lisa is located about 450 miles (725 kilometers) west-northwest of the Cape Verde Islands and is moving east-northeast near 5 mph (7 kph).
