Adrian Dissipates Over the Pacific
UPDATED 8 AM PDT, June 12, 2011
UPDATED By WeatherBug Meteorologist, Dustin Devine
After peaking as a Category 4 Hurricane on Friday, once-powerful Adrian has weakened to a Post-Tropical Cyclone as it moves into cooler water off the Mexican coast. Barely a threat to shipping, the storm poses no threat to land, and will dissipate over the next day or two as it continues to traverse even colder ocean water.
As of 8 a.m. PDT, a Post-Tropical Cyclone Adrian was located near 16.5 N and 115.8 W, or about 585 miles southwest of the southern tip of Baja California. The storm has maximum sustained winds of 35 mph. Adrian is moving toward the west at 12 mph, and its minimum central pressure has risen to 1004 mb or 29.65 inches of mercury.
Tropical Depression Adrian will continue to weaken rapidly and should dissipate later today or tomorrow. It is unlikely to cause shipping concerns from here on out.
Elsewhere, the tropics remain quiet. A disturbance in the Caribbean, which looked to be on its way to becoming the Atlantic`s first tropical depression a few days ago, encountered some hostile weather conditions and was rapidly torn apart.
While formation is not expected for the next couple days, it is a good time to prepare for the upcoming hurricane season. Make a list of necessary hurricane preparation items, including water, food and batteries. In addition, scout out multiple evacuation routes from your area in case the best one is blocked or congested.
