Tropical Storm Moves Away From Mexico

MIAMI (October 24, 2013) Tropical Storm Raymond was maintaining its strength Thursday as it moved away from Mexico's Pacific coast.

At its peak, Raymond was a Category 3 hurricane that threatened to hammer the Mexican coast, a region devastated by a storm last month, but Raymond spun in place offshore for more than a day before heading back out to sea Wednesday.

Raymond's maximum sustained winds early Thursday were near 45 miles per hour and the storm was centered about 305 miles south-southwest of Manzanillo, Mexico.

It was moving west at near 8 miles per hour.

Meanwhile in the Atlantic, Tropical Depression Lorenzo was expected to weaken and become a remnant low.

Lorenzo's maximum sustained winds were near 35 miles per hour Thursday and the depression was centered about 1,020 miles east of Bermuda.
