Although Eastern Pacific Hurricane Amanda had lost some strength after peaking over the weekend, the season’s first storm has regained some of its punch.
As of the 2am Pacific (4am Central) advisory on Hurricane Amanda, the storm had sustained winds of 125 miles per hour. It was located about 620 miles to the south of the southern tip of Baja California, moving to the north/northwest at 5 miles per hour.
Forecasters with the National Hurricane Center expect the storm to weaken again soon, and possibly become a Tropical Storm by late on Wednesday.
At this time, the storm does not pose a threat to land.
