Pacific Tropical Storm: Fernanda Expected To Strengthen Moving West

Hurricane Fernanda has continued to build strength in the Pacific Ocean but is heading farther out to sea and does not pose any immediate threat to land. It is the second major hurricane of the season. Fernanda was moving toward the west near 12 miles per hour (19 kph) and this motion is expected to continue over the next couple of days.

Maximum sustained winds are at 145 miles per hour.

As of 2:00 a.m. PDT Friday, Hurricane Fernanda was about 975 miles southwest of the southern tip of Baja California, according to public advisory issued by the National Weather Service (NHC). The size of this swell will be dependent on the eventual track and intensity of the system, Honolulu-based forecasters with the Central Pacific Hurricane Center said.

Forecasters predict Fernanda to continue strengthening over the next day or so. A tropical depression is expected to form early next week as the system moves slowly toward the west-northwest. PC: NOAA/NWS/National Hurricane Center.

The general forecast by the National Weather Service is for Hurricane Fernanda to strengthen over the weekend before starting to weaken early next week.
