Georgette weakened early this morning from a hurricane to a tropical storm while Frank strengthened to a hurricane.
Still packing maxmimum sustained winds around 70 mph, Georgette was located 1,245 miles west of Baja California at 5 a.m. today and moving northwest at a leisurely 3 mph.
Farther east, Hurricane Frank was centered 445 miles west-southwest of Baja California, had sustained winds of 75 mph and was moving west-northwest at 9 mph.
Hurricane Georgette is beginning to weaken as it moves into cooler waters in the East Pacific.
Forecasters said Georgette’s remnants could bring rain and surf to the state this weekend as it passes near Hawaii. The system is expected to weaken to below tropical depression strength by then.
In the meantime, most areas should see clear to partly cloudy skies today, with cooling tradewinds making a slow return.
Frank is expected to start weakening Wednesday. Forecasters expect it to be a tropical depression by the end of the week when it will still be hundreds of miles east of the Central Pacific.
