Tropical Strom Patricia May Affect Mexico Cruises

Forescasters say Tropical Storm Patricia could reach the vicinity of Cabo San Lucas by early Wednesday. This strom was formed earlier this week south of Cabo, a popular Mexico cruise port.

Royal Caribbean's Mariner of the Seas is in the region and already switched courise to avoid the storm. The 3,114 passenger cruise ship will spend today at sea instead of visiting Cabo San Lucas. A Royal Caribbean spokesperson says they have modified the current cruise itinerary to visit Cabo San Lucas after stops in Puerto Vallarta and Mazatlan this week, trying to avoid the storm.

As of 5:00am Pacific Time this morning, Tropical Storm Patricia was approximately 140 miles south-southeast of the southern tip of the Baja Peninsula and was moving to the north about 6 miles per hour. The National Hurricane Center forecasts Patricia will strength flightl today. They also said it is unlikely to become a hurricane.

An update at 3:45pm Pacific Time today states Tropical Storm Patricia has weakened. Forecasters now expect the storm to pass near or over the southern Baha Peninsula tonight and Wednesday.
