Tuesday Afternoon Update
Karina moving away from Mexico

NHC just recently upgraded to t.s. karina

Karina is about 275 miles south-southwest of Cabo and moving away from Mexico. Easterly shear is affecting it and the eastern part of the circulation is exposed. It should continue west, moving away from Mexico. The only effects on Mexico may be a slight increse in swell on the southern Baja.

Karina's days are numbered. The deep convection is being stripped by easterly winds. The only deep convection remains on the west side. It continues to move away from Mexico.
