Mexico & California: Seymour weakening but may bring soaking rains

Tropical Storm Seymour, after reaching high-end Category 4 status as the strongest hurricane of the 2016 eastern Pacific hurricane season, is now rapidly weakening and is expected to fizzle out as a remnant low by mid-to-late Friday.

Increased wind shear and cooler water are taking their toll on Seymour, far enough offshore to never be a direct threat to land.

Here’s the latest from the National Hurricane Center:

  • Seymour was located over 850 miles west-southwest of the southern tip of Baja California.
  • Seymour will weaken to a tropical depression Friday, and eventually degenerate into a remnant low by late Friday.
  • Given this rapid weakening and its current distance from Baja California, Seymour poses no threat to land.
  • Some mid-level moisture from Seymour may be drawn into the western United States, adding to rainfall there. 
  • Seymour is the 13th hurricane of the 2016 northeast Pacific Ocean hurricane season.
