MIAMI – Tropical Storm Jerry weakened to a depression Monday as it headed toward cooler water in the open North Atlantic.
Jerry, which formed Sunday, was not expected to restrengthen, and meteorologists it likely would be absorbed by a larger, non-tropical low pressure system by Tuesday morning.
At 11 a.m. EDT, Jerry was centered about 1,420 miles east of Boston and 945 miles west-northwest of the Azores, the National Hurricane Center said. It had top sustained wind near 35 mph, below the 39 mph threshold for a tropical storm, and was moving toward the northeast at about 13 mph.
In the Pacific, the remnants of Tropical Storm Ivo were expected to dissipate within the next day, the hurricane center said. The weather system was centered off the southern tip of Mexico's Baja California peninsula and moving slowly eastward.
The south tip of Baja, including the resort cities of Cabo San Lucas and San Jose del Cabo, was hit early this month by Hurricane Henriette.
