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.
