Category 4 Fernanda Rips across the Northeast Pacific
Dr. Jeff Masters · July 15, 2017, 2:55 PM

<<Arriving on the scene only a week after Category 3 Hurricane Eugene, Fernanda is the Eastern Pacific’s second major hurricane of the year—a milestone that on average isn’t reached till the third week of August. Eugene was a fast intensifier, but also a fast weakener: its entire lifespan as a hurricane spanned less than 48 hours. In contrast, Fernanda won’t be taking its bows anytime soon.

Fernanda was at a very southery latitude of 11°N on Saturday morning, and its westward to west-northwestward track through Monday will keep it over very warm waters of 28 - 29°C--about 0.5°C above average. Wind shear will remain quite low (less than 10 knots), so the main question mark in Fernanda’s strength over the weekend is how quickly it will recover from the eyewall replacement cycle that was underway Saturday morning. The old eyewall with a diameter of 10 miles was collapsing, to be replaced by a new eyewall with a larger diameter of 30 miles. Once this process is complete, reintensification can occur, and it is possible that Fernanda could reach Category 5 status on Sunday.

By Monday afternoon, Fernanda will be on a gradual decline, as it moves over cooler waters and into a drier, more stable atmosphere. The weakening should be gradual, though, and it’s possible that Fernanda will be approaching the Hawaiian Islands as a tropical storm by the weekend of July 22 - 23.>>
