Pacific Tropical Storm: Fernanda Expected To Strengthen Moving West

Fernanda intensified to hurricane status as anticipated today and forecasters with the National Hurricane Center say it will likely become a major hurricane by Friday night.

While it's still too early to tell if the hurricane will have any impact on Hawaii, early forecast models show a track that moves in a direction toward the islands.

The system is not now a threat to the Hawaiian Islands, however, a long period east swell from Fernanda is forecast to arrive by Tuesday or Wednesday.

By July 14 at 5 a.m. EDT (0900 UTC), the center of Hurricane Fernanda was located near 11.0 degrees north latitude and 117.9 degrees west longitude.
