The tropical storm is 1,535 miles west of the southern tip of Baja California.

Thus, it remains well removed from land and will never impact any important land masses.

Kenneth will continue to weaken as it interacts with an upper-level low to the west causing wind shear, moves over cool water and into a more stable air mass.

These very hostile environmental conditions will cause Kenneth to weaken to a tropical depression late tomorrow and degenerate into a non-tropical low pressure area by Thursday.

The rest of the East Pacific, including the Central Pacific, should remain relatively quiet through the rest of this week.
