Hurricane Daniel forms in Eastern Pacific, but is not a threat

By Star-Advertiser & Associated Press

POSTED:


Hurricane Daniel has formed far from land in the Eastern Pacific and is moving west, but forecasters expected to weaken as it moves over colder water.

Remnants of the storm may bring an increased chance of rain to Hawaii late next week, forecasters said.

The National Hurricane Center in Miami said late today that Daniel had maximum sustained winds of 75 mph and was moving westward at 12 mph. It was  745 miles southwest of the southern tip of Baja, California.

The center said Daniel was a Category 1 hurricane but posed no threat to land. It could strengthen overnight and into Saturday, but should start weakening over colder waters on Sunday. Daniel becomes the third hurricane of the Eastern North Pacific season.
