Andres Weakens, Blanca Strengthens in the Pacific

The first two named storms of the Eastern Pacific Ocean hurricane season are spinning off the west coast of Mexico in the Pacific Ocean. Hurricane Andres is winding down and expected to drop to depression-strength and turn east in the next couple of days. Tropical Storm Blanca is expected to become a major hurricane soon as it heads north-northwest towards Baja California. Although Blanca’s strength will diminish somewhat before landfall, she may still be at hurricane strength and produce swells that bring life-threatening surf and rip current conditions to the coast of southwestern Mexico during the next couple of days.
