The US National Hurricane Center said Tropical Storm John was expected to strengthen rapidly and become a hurricane by today night or tomorrow. A tropical storm watch was in effect for a much broader swath of coast, from Los Barilles to Todos Santos.

As of 5 p.m. Tuesday, the center of Hurricane Hector was approximately 370 miles ESE of South Point at latitude 16.6 N and longitude 150.7 W, moving west at approximately 16 mph. Among these are higher than normal trade winds across the tropical North Atlantic as well as the current sea surface temperature anomaly pattern in the tropical Atlantic. The storm traffic for the rest of the season, which ends officially on November 30, won't be almost as robust, Philip Klotzbach, hurricane specialist at Colorado State University, which pioneered long-range tropical storm forecasting, said last week. Since then, Hurricane Hector has moved into the Central Pacific, becoming a powerful Cat 4 hurricane that will pass just south of Hawaii on Wednesday.

A subtropical storm is a hybrid of a tropical and non-tropical system. It was centered about 1,255 miles west-southwest of the southern tip of the Baja.

Early Wednesday, Hector was traveling west at 16 miles per hour with 125 miles per hour maximum sustained winds.
