Wednesday Morning Update

Genevieve weakens, but still cat 3

The Weather Situation
Genevieve was briefly a category 4 hurricane after a rapid intensification phase yesterday. It is now moving toward water that is a little cooler and has started the weakening process. A heavy rainband is now near the southern Baja. High surf, heavy rainfall and strong gusty winds are likely with Genevieve as is passes west of the Baja over the next few days.

Thursday Midday Update

Genevieve just west of southern Baja

The Weather Situation
It is quite likely that Genevieve is not a hurricane any longer. IMO top sustained winds offshore are probably closer to 65 mph. The tropical cyclone continues to weaken over colder water. The main threat continues to be heavy rainfall, rough surf on the western Baja coast and winds gusting to tropical storm force.
