Eastern Pacific Tropical Cyclone Cosme strengthened to a hurricane just off the coast of Mexico Tuesday, but now the storm is weakening over colder waters.
Tropical Depression 3-E took shape midday Sunday about 500 miles south of Manzanillo, Mexico, in the eastern Pacific Ocean.
Cosme was the second hurricane of the 2013 Eastern Pacific season. During late May, Barbara became a hurricane just prior to making landfall near Puerto Arista, Mexico in the Gulf of Tehuantepec.
Cosme will continue to move along a west-northwest path, taking it away from the Mexico coast. The system was moving into waters too cold to survive.
While escaping the worst of the system, Mexico will continue to receive heavy, gusty thunderstorms along its southern coast, from Acapulco to Manzanillo to Puerto Vallarta, through Wednesday. Flash flooding is a concern.
Surf will remain rough along the coast during this time, making the water extremely dangerous for bathers into the end of the week.
