Jimena Strengthens Rapidly; Ignacio Edges Towards Hawaii

8/29/2015 5:14:35 AM

Hurricane Jimena continues to strengthen this morning and is now a powerful Category 4 hurricane and may continue to grow even stronger during the next 24 hours. Jimena is located about 1220 miles southwest of the southern tip of Baja California. The storm will begin to weaken on Monday but remain a major hurricane for several days to come. Jimena will track west or west-northwest track over the open waters of the Pacific through the middle of next week.

Hurricane Ignacio is in the Central Pacific located about 660 miles to the east-southeast of Hilo, Hawaii. The system is tracking west-northwestward and should continue to do so for the next several days. Ignacio will continue to move through an environment conducive for additional strengthening through tonight. After that, increasing wind shear and cooler ocean waters will weaken Ignacio by early next week. It should eventually pass north and east of the Hawaiian Islands later Monday into Wednesday. Rough surf, strong rip currents, along with some wind and rain could impact the islands.

Hurricane Kilo is located about 260 miles west-northwest of Johnston Island and well west of the Hawaiian Islands. Kilo is located in a zone of warm ocean waters and low wind shear, so additional strengthening is forecast over the next several days. Kilo will continue on a west then northwest track for the next couple of days, well away from the Hawaiian Islands.
