Carlos continues to strengthen in the eastern Pacific and has now become the 2nd Hurricane of the season, with maximum sustained winds near the center now at 80 mph.
Carlos was located 1000 miles south-southwest of Cabo San Lucas, Mexico and continues moving west. Carlos will remain only a marine hazard and will be of no threat to any land.
In the Atlantic basin, a suppression of the surface subtropical ridge continues, producing sinking air of much of the tropical waters. This will continue to inhibit any tropical cyclone development.
