Pacific Hurricane Force Storm
Developing Storm Low
A rapidly intensifying low over the west-central North Pacific will move east-northeast producing storm to hurricane force winds (possibly up to 70 knots) with significant wave heights up to 14.5 meters (48 feet) over the next 36-48 hours. Highest conditions are expected south of the center between 36N and 42 N latitudes.
Forecast indicate that this system will weaken as it moves northeast and approaches the US West Coast with wind, rain, and snow Wednesday into Thursday.
