Tropical Storm Marie forms in Eastern Pacific

By Craig Gima

LAST UPDATED: 8:25 a.m. HST, Aug 22, 2014

A third tropical storm that formed in the Eastern Pacific overnight could become a major hurricane early next week.

Tropical Storm Marie has sustained winds of 50 mph and was located about 325 miles south of Zihuatanejo, Mexico at 5 a.m. Friday.

The storm was moving west-northwest at 17 mph, on a path parallel to the Mexican Coast.

It's the third tropical storm in the Eastern Pacific.

Lowell weakened back to tropical storm status Thursday evening and continued to weaken Friday as it moves over cooler waters.

The storm had maximum sustained wind speeds of 60 mph as of 5 a.m. Friday

The eye of Lowell was about 905 miles west of Baja, California in Mexico, moving northwest at 10 mph.

Forecasters say Lowell may no longer be a tropical storm by Saturday night.

Lowell continues to influence the path of Tropical Storm Karina, to its southwest. Karina was about 1,325 miles east of Hilo at 5 a.m., packing sustained winds near 70 mph.

Lowell is pulling Karina away from Hawaii, to the northeast at 3 mph.

But after the two storms pass each other early next week, what's left of Karina will veer to the northwest.

None of the storms are expected to affect Hawaii's weather over the next five days.
