Tropical Storm Kiko was demoted to Post-Tropical Cyclone Kiko as it became weaker. KSTP News reports on Sept. 2 that Kiko initially came close to hurricane strength, but it was not considered a threat. The National Hurricane Center issued its last advisory on Sept. 2 because it had weakened.
Tropical Storm Kiko had the potential to turn into a hurricane. Although it did not pose an immediate threat, it was being carefully watched as it formed in the Pacific. The tropical storm began to form about 400 miles from the Baja coast. Winds reached 70 miles per hour, but they were reduced to 50 miles per hour and eventually fell to 35 miles per hour.
The National Hurricane Center issued ongoing advisories for Tropical Storm Kiko. Eventually, it was demoted to Post-Tropical Cyclone Kiko, and the center indicated it would not develop into a hurricane. The storm continued to weaken and winds continued to decrease.
Kiko never led to any type of warnings on land since forecasters accurately predicted it would weaken before becoming a problem. The tropical storm was reduced to a depression, and the National Hurricane Center announced it had become a remnant low.
