Where is Hurricane Genevieve?
Hurricane Genevieve is tracking about 140 miles south of the southern tip of Baja California in Mexico.
The NHC forecast: “A turn toward the northwest is expected this afternoon or tonight, with this motion continuing through Friday night.
“On the forecast track, the centre of Genevieve is expected to move near but just southwest of the southern portion of the Baja California peninsula tonight and Thursday, and move away from the peninsula on Friday.”
The NHC has issued a number of warnings for Hurricane Genevieve.
A Hurricane Warning has been issued for the southern Baja California peninsula from Los Barriles to Todos Santos.
A Tropical Storm Warning is also in effect for the west coast of the Baja California peninsula from north of Todos Santos to Cabo San Lazaro.
A Tropical Storm Watch is in place for the east coast of the Baja California peninsula from Los Barriles to La Paz.
The NHC forecast Hurricane Genevieve will gradually weaken over the next few days.
But the system will remain a strong hurricane while it passes “west of the southern Baja California peninsula”.
The system is currently moving in a north-northwest direction.
Hurricane Genevieve is also moving at a speed of 9mph.

The NHC are also monitoring a “large area of showers and thunderstorms” currently over Guinea and Sierra-Leone in Africa.
The NHC consider the disturbance has a low chance of formation into a tropical cyclone, with a near zero percent chance over 48 hours and a 20 percent chance through five days.
