Cent. Pacific Hurricane Oho
« on: October 08, 2015, 06:26:38 PM »
It's now post-tropical, but I think this is the EIGHTH named storm for the Central Pacific this season - the normal is like, 4 tops.

I have never seen a forecast track like this one.......and it's just as the leftovers of Joaquin are about to visit the Portuguese coast.

Although Oho will be way offshore, a large swell generated by that storm is expected to bring dangerous high surf and breaking waves here on the Oregon and Washington coasts this weekend, according to the NWS.

...HAZARDOUS BEACH CONDITIONS THIS HOLIDAY WEEKEND...

HURRICANE OHO HAS TRANSITIONED TO AN EXTRA TROPICAL LOW AND WILL
CONTINUE TO MOVE NORTH WELL OFFSHORE OVER THE PACIFIC. IT WILL MAKE
ITS CLOSEST APPROACH TONIGHT ABOUT 650 MILES OFF THE MOUTH OF THE
COLUMBIA RIVER.

A LARGE SOUTHWEST SWELL GENERATED BY THE STORM IS EXPECT TO ARRIVE
IN THE COASTAL WATERS BY LATE THURSDAY NIGHT OR EARLY FRIDAY. THIS
SWELL WILL BE THE SOURCE OF THE PRIMARY CONCERN FOR THE SOUTH
WASHINGTON AND NORTH AND CENTRAL OREGON COASTS THIS WEEKEND. WITH
THE SWELL REACHING 14 FEET ON FRIDAY...THE THREAT OF BREAKING
WAVES OVER JETTIES AND SOUTH TO SOUTHWEST FACING BEACHES WILL
EXIST...ALONG WITH THE POSSIBILITY OF GENERATING SIGNIFICANT SURF.
A SWELL OF THIS DIRECTION AND MAGNITUDE IS SOMEWHAT UNCOMMON...AND
THESE WAVES MAY ALSO RESULT IN BEACH EROSION IN AREAS THAT DO NOT

And my local news station said that Joaquin wouldn't become tropical again. Will Oho stay as a remnant low or is there a chance of development?
