The formation of Tropical Storm Marie means there are now three active Tropical Storms in the Eastern Pacific Ocean.

The "oldest" of those storms is Karina, which is barely moving deep in the waters of the Pacific Ocean. Karina is a tropical storm and expected to stay that way likely through the weekend as it begins to pick up speed and move to to the northeast.

Tropical Storm Lowell is packing 65 mile-per-hour winds as of the 4am advisory on Friday, and continues to move to the Northwest. It's expected to begin to weaken during the weekend, posing no threat to land.

The storm closest to land is Tropical Storm Marie. It could also strengthen over the next few days, possibly even becoming a Major Hurricane by Monday. However, it's current west-northwest track keeps it from likely impacting any major land masses directly.
