Georgette moves farther into NE Mexico
MIAMI — Forecasters say what was once Tropical Depression Georgette is moving farther inland across the northwestern coast of Mexico as a low pressure system.
A tropical storm watch was discontinued Wednesday for the coast of mainland Mexico. Winds were at about 30 mph (45 kph), not strong enough to be called a depression.
Meanwhile, Tropical Storm Lisa is meandering far out in the eastern Atlantic. It has maximum sustained winds near 40 mph (65 kph), and was barely still a tropical storm. Slow strengthening is expected over the next two days.
Lisa is located about 390 miles (625 kilometers) west-northwest of the Cape Verde Islands and is moving east-northeast near 5 mph (7 kph).
