Bermudas and Mexico. Hurricane Earl and Hurricane Kay
Earl is expected to move slowly toward the north or north-northeast through Wednesday. Earl will likely make its closest pass to Bermuda from late Thursday into early Friday as a Category 1 or 2 hurricane.
Due to expected impacts, the country’s government has issued a Tropical Storm Watch for the archipelago.
A Tropical Storm Watch means winds gusts of 73 mph are possible within the next 48 hours.
Not expected to be a threat to Florida, although it could affect Bermuda. Current predictions indicate that Earl will become the Atlantic’s first major hurricane of the season by Friday after it pulls away from Bermuda.
A strengthening hurricane tracking up Mexico’s Pacific Coast will affect Southern California’s weather by the weekend — all while delivering punishing rains and high winds to the Mexican coast through Friday.
The core of Hurricane Kay will be very near the west-central Baja California Peninsula.
A hurricane watch is in effect for the west coast of the peninsula from Puerto Cortes to Punta Eugenia.
Following current projections, it will pass Los Cabos with the most intensity around 8 pm on September 7th. If current projections remain valid, Los Cabos will likely see intense rain, high winds, and strong waves. However, as with any weather event, things can change anytime.
Travelers planning to visit Los Cabos over the next few days should keep an eye on their flight status. So far, the airport is operating normally, but that is subject to change at a moment’s notice. With the worst of the storm approaching Los Cabos on the evening of the 7th, it is especially important for travelers flying in or out of Los Cabos International Airport on the same day to check their flight status constantly.
Actions To Take:
Individuals in Bermuda and Los Cabos are advised to monitor local weather reports, adhere to advice issued by local authorities, and refrain from beach or ocean activities; hurricanes can produce dangerous waves and deadly rip currents even at large distances from the storm.
Monitor the local news for updates, follow directions from local officials, and call 911 in case of emergency.
