Two Named Storms Roaming E. Pacific Basin
UPDATED 2 PM PDT, July 8, 2012

The eastern Pacific tropics are busy this weekend with two named storms. Fortunately, neither is a threat to any land mass.
As of 2 p.m. PDT, Hurricane Daniel was located near 15.2 N and 125.0 W, or about 1120 miles west-southwest of the southern tip of Baja California. Its top sustained winds are 105 mph, making it a category 2 hurricane on the Saffir-Simpson Scale, and it`s moving west at 14 mph. The minimum central pressure remains at 970 mb, or 28.64 inches of mercury.
The storm will likely weaken to a tropical storm early next week as it slides across cooler water and pose no hazards other than to shipping lanes.
South and east of Daniel, Tropical Storm Emilia is getting stronger. Tropical Storm Emilia was located near 11.4 N and 107.5 W, or about 565 miles south of Manzanillo, Mexico. Its top sustained winds have increased to 65 mph, making it a tropical storm, and it`s moving west-northwest at 15 mph. The minimum central pressure has decreased to 997 mb, or 29.44 inches of mercury.
An upper-level trough in northwestern Mexico will likely keep Emilia far offshore the Mexico coast, following a similar path to Daniel. Emilia will likely become a hurricane early next week, but only pose a threat to shipping lanes.
