Maximum sustained winds are 30 knots (35 mph, 55 km/h), with stronger gusts. Minimum central pressure is 1003 mbar (hPa; 29.62 InHg), and the system is moving northwest at 11 kt (13 mph; 20 km/h).

Hurricane Jova (10E) - October 10th, 2011

Enhanced image

This image shows Jova (10E) three days ago, while the system was still at hurricane strength. (Click here for a more recent image of the storm, which has since become a post-tropical cyclone).

During the late hours of October 4, an area of showers and thunderstorms associated with a broad low pressure area developed several hundred miles to the south-southwest of Acapulco, Mexico. Moving slowly towards the west, the area of disturbed weather quickly organized. Late on October 5, the National Hurricane Center (NHC) noted that the area had a high chance of developing into a tropical cyclone over the next 48 hours. Just several hours later, the NHC began issuing advisories on Tropical Depression Ten-E, several hundred miles to the south of Manzanillo, Mexico.

A more gradual type of development took place after then, and the depression was upgraded into Tropical Storm Jova on the afternoon of October 6. Taking advantage of the favorable environment within which Jova was embedded, the storm became a hurricane on October 8, and by October 10, the storm was upgraded to a Category 3 hurricane on the Saffir-Simpson hurricane scale. However, shortly thereafter, the storm began an Eyewall replacement cycle and weakened to a lower-end Category 2 hurricane.

Track of 10E

At 8:00 PM PDT (0300 UTC) the center of Post-tropical Cyclone Jova was located near latitude 21.7 north, longitude 104.2 west.

The post-tropical cyclone is moving toward the northeast near 5 mph (7 km/h) and a slow northeastward motion is expected until dissipation.

Maximum sustained winds have decreased to near 30 mph (45 km/h) with higher gusts. Continued weakening is forecast, and the system should dissipate in a day or less. The estimated minimum central pressure is 1008 mb (29.77 inches).

Hazards affecting land consist mainly in rainfall; the remnant of Jova is expected to produce total rainfall accumulations of 2 to 4 inches over the states of Michoacan, Colima, Jalisco and Nayarit through Thursday.

As of 5 p.m. HST August 17 (0300 UTC August 18), the center of Tropical Storm Guillermo (10E) was estimated to be located about 525 mi (845 km) east-northeast of Hilo, Hawaii and about 660 mi (1060 km) east-northeast of Honolulu, Hawaii.

Tropical Storm Guillermo has maximum sustained winds of 40 kt (45 mph, 75 km/h), with higher gusts. The system has a minimum central pressure of 1004 mbar (29.65 inches), and is moving west-northwest at 17 kt (20 mph, 31 km/h). Tropical storm force winds extend outward up to 70 miles (115 km) from the center of Guillermo.

Guillermo (10E)  strengthened to become the fourth hurricane of the season on August 14th, concurrent to the development of a good, banding type eye. That afternoon, the system strengthened to a Category 2 hurricane with maximum winds increasing to 100 mph (155 km/h).

Early on August 15, Guillermo intensified to become the second major hurricane of the season, as it was upgraded by the NHC to a Category 3 hurricane, with maximum winds increasing to 115 mph (185km/h).

As of 5 p.m. HST August 16 (0300 UTC August 17), the center of Hurricane Guillermo is estimated to be located about 890 mi (1430 km) east of Hilo, Hawaii. Hurricane Guillermo has maximum sustained winds of 65 kt (75 mph, 120 km/h), with higher gusts.

The system has a minimum central pressure of 985 mbar (29.09 inches), and is moving west-northwest at 13 kt (15 mph, 24 km/h). Hurricane force winds extend up to 35 miles (55 km) from the center of Guillermo, and tropical storm force winds up to 105 miles (170 km) from the center.
