Hernan now a hurricane in Eastern Pacific

By Star-Advertiser staff

LAST UPDATED: 6:27 p.m. HST, Jul 27, 2014

Hurricane Hernan has formed in the Eastern Pacific Sunday.

The storm has sustained winds of 75 mph, but is not a threat to land and it is not expected to remain a hurricane as it moves northwest into cooler waters, forecasters said.

Meanwhile, Genevieve moved into the Central Pacific Sunday morning and weakened to what's called a post-tropical low by 5 p.m. At 5 p.m., the remnants of the former tropical cyclone were about 890 miles east southeast of the Big Island. Genevieve is moving west at 15 mph with sustained winds near 35 mph.

Genevieve could bring another bout of muggy weather and an increased chance of showers to Hawaii by next weekend.

National Weather Service forecasters expect Hawaii's weather to remain hot and humid Sunday, but drier weather and moderate tradewinds are expected for the beginning of the week.

Showers overnight on Oahu eased and the chance of rain is lessening as a patch of moist air over the state moves away.

The forecast through the middle of the week calls for typical tradewind weather with windward and mauka showers in the morning.

Hurricane Hernan is still too far away from Hawaii to tell if it will affect Hawaii's weather.

The storm is located 330 miles south southeast of the southern tip of Baja, California and is moving northwest at 15 mph.

Forecasters expect Hernan to encounter winds that will tear it apart as it moves over cooler water over the next five days.
