While conditions have calmed in the Atlantic hurricane basin, the same isn’t true in the Pacific Ocean where the National Hurricane Center is tracking multiple disturbances. The closest system to the United States is Tropical Depression Boris and it is expected to pass by Hawaii well to its south in the coming days as it dissipates.
In the latest advisory from the Central Pacific Hurricane Center (CPHC) in Honolulu, Hawaii, the center of Tropical Depression Boris was located near latitude 12.3 North, longitude 141.3 West. The depression is moving toward the west near 7 mph; it has maximum sustained winds of around 35 mph. Central minimum pressure is estimated to be 1007 mb or 29.74 inches.
The CPHC expects Boris to continue heading west today; however, they forecast an increase in forward speed and a gradual turn toward the west-southwest is expected later tonight and tomorrow. As the system moves west and eventually west-southwest, it is expected to degenerate into a remnant low well away from Hawaii. By Monday, it should be completely dissipated.
While the hurricane season for the Central Pacific Hurricane Basin continues through to the end of November like it does in the Atlantic basin, there are no other tropical cyclones of immediate concern to Hawaii at this time.
