The tight center of Tropical Storm Erick can be seen moving westward between Mexico and Hawaii.
An area of disturbed weather off Mexico’s Pacific coast formed into Tropical Storm Erick Monday night.

The storm was centered about 1,215 miles (1,955 km) west-southwest of the southern tip of Baja California and more than 2,000 miles (3,320 km) away from the Hawaiian islands shortly before 6:00 a.m. Tuesday.

The storm was downgraded to a depression Thursday, and was expected to move over cooler waters and become a remnant by the end of the week.

Through its brief lifespan, Erick was a threat only to shipping lanes in the region.
