Elida, a Category 2 hurricane with sustained winds of 100 mph, is forecast to be out in the eastern Pacific. It will not directly impact the land, but the hazards from the storm are beyond the center of the storm.
Inflammation generated by alida can cause life-threatening surf and rip currents along the west-central Mexican coast and along the southern Baja California peninsula.
Hitting stones up to 25 feet high will also be dangerous for mariners.
CNN meteorologist Chad Myers said, “Although Elida is a hurricane, it will track in the northwest when cold water and die.”
Although Elida is expected to weaken sometime from Wednesday, more growth is expected in its wake.
“Myers said,” Tropical regions of the eastern Pacific off the west coast of Mexico are becoming very active. “” Computer models are predicting two more tropical storms behind this one. ”
‘J’ may become storm this weekend
Tropical Depression 11 formed in the Atlantic on Tuesday afternoon and the Tropical Storm is expected to develop into Josephine within the next few days.
The system is expected to be slightly stronger and become the tropical storm Josephine in the next 24 to 48 hours. If it turns out to be a tropical storm, it will be the earliest hurricane on record to begin with “J”. The previous record was 22 August 2005.
This will continue the record-setting pace of this hurricane season, breaking the previous record during the infamous 2005 season. The hurricanes had 28 names that season, 15 of which were hurricanes.
The Tropical Depression is about 1,450 miles east of 11 Lesser Antilles and is moving west at a speed of 16 mph. Computer models are suggesting that it will move north of Howard Island and Puerto Rico later this week, as a tropical storm.
Whether this will affect the mainland United States remains uncertain, but the system is expected to face less favorable conditions as it moves toward or north of Lacarde Island. This storm must be weakened and may cause damage over the weekend.
