Tropical Storm Estelle Eastern Pacific Ocean

At 900 UTC (5 a.m. EDT) on August 10, Tropical Depression Estelle had maximum sustained winds near 35 mph and continues to weaken. Estelle is located about 445 miles south-southwest of the southern tip of Baja California near 17.4 North and 113.4 West. Estelle was moving toward the southwest near 2 mph and has a minimum central pressure of 1005 millibars.

The National Hurricane Center noted that Estelle has only shown one small burst of deep convection (rapidly rising air that forms the thunderstorms that power a tropical cyclone) later in the evening of August 9 (after NASA's AIRS image was captured). Southeasterly vertical wind shear continues to batter Estelle, and the system is expected to weaken into a remnant low pressure area later today.
