Tropical Storm Barbara strengthening in Eastern Pacific

Tropical Storm Barbara strengthening in Eastern Pacific: HONOLULU, Hawaii (HawaiiNewsNow) – Tropical Storm Barbara is gaining momentum in the eastern North Pacific and could become a hurricane on Monday, meteorologists say.

The National Hurricane Center said at 11 pm On Sunday, in Hawaii, Barbara was located 895 miles south-southwest of the southern tip of the Baja California peninsula.

It was moving west at 21 miles per hour with maximum sustained winds increasing to 65 miles per hour. Winds with tropical storm strength of at least 39 miles per hour extend up to 140 miles from the center.

Forecasters expect Barbara to continue from west to northwest, but at a slower pace in the coming days.

The tropical storm is moving in an area of ​​high and low shear sea surface temperatures that will allow regular and perhaps rapid reinforcement during the next 24 to 36 hours. After 72 hours, forecasters predict that it will move to a colder area of ​​water and increase the shear to the southwest.

According to current forecasts, it will enter the Central Pacific during the next weekend. It is still too early to tell if Barbara will have an impact on the Hawaiian Islands, but her extreme weather monitoring team will follow her closely.

If there is an effect, it will probably happen next week on Tuesday or Wednesday. Keep in mind that the projected trajectory and intensity can and will change.
