Tropical Storm Lowell Becomes Depression

September 10, 2008
(September 10, 5 p.m. EDT) -- Tropical Storm Lowell has been downgraded to a tropical depression, with winds blowing at 35 miles per hour. There is still, however, a tropical storm watch for the southern portion of the Baja Peninsula, which includes cruise port Cabo San Lucas. The storm is just over 100 miles away from land.

Lowell is moving at a snail's pace of 7 m.p.h. and is expected to move over the peninsula tonight or early Thursday while it continues to gradually weaken. Carnival Pride is still expected to call in Cabo San Lucas on Friday, but Vision of the Seas has skipped its Cabo and Mazatlan calls and replaced them with a Wednesday-to-Thursday overnight stay in Puerto Vallarta.

Lowell has significantly calmed down, and this will be the last update for this storm.
