Pacific Hurricane: Fernanda Expected To Weaken Moving West

The Atlantic basin is quiet for now, but not the Pacific. We just had Hurricane Eugene, now it’s Fernanda’s turn. The system is now a major hurricane, but thankfully is over 1500 miles east of the Hawaiian Islands Monday morning.

The official track takes the center west-northwest with a gradual decrease in strength and Fernanda is expected to downgraded to a tropical storm later this week. Right now looks like rough surf is the only concern for the big island.

Later this week as the system continues westward, waves could get a little choppy for the big island. The green by Tuesday indicates seas running 10′-12′.
