Guillermo Remains a Category 2 Hurricane

8/2/2015 8:00:00 AM

Hurricane Guillermo is currently a Category 2 hurricane with maximum-sustained winds of 105 mph. The hurricane is located about 925 miles east-southeast of Hilo, Hawaii, and is tracking west-northwest at 13 mph.

Guillermo will continue to maintain strength over the next 12 to 24 hours as it moves through generally favorable conditions. As Guillermo continues to track to the west-northwest this week, the system may begin to weaken as it moves into an environment of higher shear and gradually cooler ocean water temperatures.

The main impacts from Guillermo over the next few days will be higher waves, rough surf and rip currents affecting the Hawaiian Islands.

Eventually, Guillermo will most likely pass to the north of the Hawaiian Islands and only bring a brief period of enhanced rainfall to the north-facing slopes of the islands. Some models however still bring the system into the Big Island of Hawaii late on Wednesday into early on Thursday. By that time Guillermo will likely be a tropical storm or weaker. If it were to make landfall, rainfall would still be the most significant impact to the islands.

The rest of the East Pacific Basin remains relatively quiet.
