Forecast track for post-tropical cyclone Genevieve at 5 p.m. Sunday
Forecast track for Hurricane Hernan at 5 p.m. Sunda6y
HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) -
Genevieve is no longer a tropical depression, but its moisture may still have an impact on Hawaii weather. Meanwhile, Hurricane Hernan maintained strength as it moved quickly toward the northwest in the far East Pacific.
According to the Central Pacific Hurricane Center in Honolulu,
The Central Pacific Hurricane Center in Honolulu said at 5 p.m., Genevieve 890 miles east-southeast of South Point and was moving west at 15 miles per hour. It had maximum sustained winds of 35 miles per hour with higher gusts, and was expected to weaken into a remnant low by late Monday.
The current forecast track takes the remnant just south of the Hawaiian Islands. There is a chance that it could send a surge of tropical moisture toward the state that could bring muggy conditions and the threat of heavy rain from late Thursday into Friday, and perhaps into the weekend. It's still too early to determine specifically what will happen and when.
Forecasters at the National Hurricane Center in Miami said Hernan had sustained winds at 75 miles per hour with higher gusts, making it a Category One hurricane. Hernan was centered about 325 miles southwest of the southern tip of Baja California and was moving to the northwest at 15 miles per hour. Little change is forecast overnight, and the storm is forecast to weaken over the next 48 hours. It could be downgraded to a tropical storm as soon as Monday.
