It's too early to tell if the system will have a direct impact on Hawaii.

Fernanda was centered about 1,060 miles southwest of the southern tip of the Baja California Peninsula and was moving westward at 12 mph.

When the storm crosses into the Central Pacific, the forecasters at the Central Pacific Hurricane Center on Oahu will take the lead in monitoring the storm.

The general forecast by the National Weather Service is for Hurricane Fernanda to strengthen over the weekend before starting to weaken early next week.

The disturbance was upgraded to Tropical Storm status Wednesday morning as maximum sustained winds increased near 40 miles per hour with higher gusts. After that, little change in strength is expected through Sunday. Hurricane-force winds extend outward up to 15 miles from the center and tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 60 miles.

The National Hurricane Center said the hurricane is now the second strongest storm in modern history to be recorded so far south in the eastern Pacific.

No coastal watches or warnings are now in effect, however forecasters will continue to keep a close eye for any potential impact on Hawaii's islands.
