Rare Late-Season Tropical Storm

Just in case you’ve been wondering where I’ve been:

Tropical Storm Kenneth has formed in the eastern Pacific Ocean, with forecasters calling it a rare late-season tropical storm. The U.S. National Hurricane Center in Miami said Sunday that Kenneth had maximum sustained winds near 40 mph (65 kph). The storm was centered about 525 miles (845 kilometers) south of Manzanillo, Mexico.  Projections show Kenneth moving west out to sea, away from land, over the next several days.
