Hurricane forms off Mexico; no threat to land

Invest 97L 2018 Spaghetti Models Subtropical storm 'Debby' forms in the North Atlantic
| 10 August, 2018, 13:32

Farther out to sea, a strengthening Hurricane Hector headed for the central Pacific as a Category 4 storm, with winds of 140 miles per hour (220 kph), the hurricane center reported.

Any deviation northward could bring Hector close enough to impact the Big Island.

The storm's centre was about 240 miles (385 kilometres) west-southwest of the southern tip of the Baja and moving to the northwest at 15 mph (24 kph).

But the U.S. National Hurricane Center says Ileana now is predicted to remain a tropical storm before dissipating by late Tuesday due to the influence of the larger John.

The current forecast for Debby retains subtropical storm status through Wednesday (8/8) morning before weakening to a depression by Wednesday evening.


Weather experts posting on various sites said that as Debby passes over progressively cooler waters, a non-tropical system is likely to absorb and shred the storm, which will lead to its demise.

Hawaii County officials are urging residents to secure loose items and be prepared for changing conditions. Some local flash flooding is possible in a few spots, particularly along east-, south- or southeastward-facing slopes of the Big Island.

West of Mexico, Hurricane John was forecast to strengthen into a major hurricane while heading to the northwest parallel to the shore. It will not affect any land areas.

Meanwhile, a tropical storm watch was in effect Monday for waters south of the Big Island as Hurricane Hector was expected to pass Tuesday night and Wednesday as it moved westward. The rest of the Atlantic Basin is quiet at this time. Debby will not be a threat to land. But Big Island politicians live on top of one of the world's most active volcanoes and in the general vicinity of hurricanes that barrel through the central Pacific Ocean many summers.
