Despite weakening, Fernanda will still bring rough surf and downpours to parts of Hawaii through Monday.Fernanda has been churning waters of the eastern Pacific Ocean since Wednesday, July 12. The storm strengthened to a Category 4 hurricane this past weekend but has since weakened to a batch of poorly organized showers and thunderstorms.
Fernanda was brushing parts of the islands on Monday.
Bathers and small craft operators should exercise caution as seas will remain rough until Fernanda passes by to the west.
The rough surf and potential for waves washing over low-lying coastal areas will be most noticeable along the east- and north-facing beaches. South-facing beaches will be sheltered from the enhanced surf.

What is the Saffir-Simpson Hurricane Wind Scale?
Very localized downpours and gusty winds will continue to spread from east to west across the islands.
The East Pacific has remained active since Fernanda formed. Greg, Hilary and Irwin continue to churn in the open waters but will not pose a threat to land.
However, Hilary will stir surf along the western coast of Mexico this week. Some large waves from the tropical trio are likely to reach the beaches of Southern California as the week progresses.
