Storm Kenneth, which has been forming in the Eastern Pacific Ocean, is the 11th named tropical storm of this year in that region, the Cooperative Institute for Research in the Atmosphere (CIRA) said on Tuesday, September 19.
Kenneth was expected to remain a tropical storm and to stay over open ocean, CIRA said.
The storm should gradually strengthen before colder water and an unfavorable environment weaken it later this week, the National Hurricane Center (NHC) said.
