New tropical depression forms in the Pacific

MIAMI (AP) — A new tropical depression has formed over the open waters of the Pacific but isn’t an immediate threat to land.

The depression’s maximum sustained winds Thursday morning are near 35 mph (55 kph) with little change in strength expected through Friday. The U.S. National Hurricane Center says the depression is expected to weaken to a remnant low Friday night.

The depression is centered about 430 miles (690 kilometers) southwest of the southern tip of Mexico’s Baja California peninsula and is moving north-northwest near 9 mph (15 kph).
