Tropical Storm Jova bringing showers and high waves for Cabo tonight.

Date Published:

Ghost of Franklin revived enough over the Pacific to earn a new name as Tropical Storm Jova  - and will bring rains and some high waves to Cabo...

As of 9pm, Fri August 11, the National Hurricane Centre issued the first weather advisory for Tropical Storm Jova.

Jova was born as the remnants of Hurricane Franklin strengthened sufficiently in the Pacific to earn a new Eastern Pacific name. The smae thing happened last year, as Hurricane Earl dissipated, and less than 24 hours later became Tropical Storm Javier.

At present Jova is 435 km south-southeast of Cabo. Showers are very likely to start later this evening.

The port remained open all day, but closed tonight at 8pm for smaller boats. High waves are forecast which may affect fishing and water activities tomorrow. So, if you were planning on fishing best check with your charter company. The situation will be reviewed first thing in the morning.

Of course, the high waves will also cause restrictions on the beaches so please check before heading to the surf tomorrow.  

Although there is no alert in place, just to be on the safe side, the Council of Civil Protection (which includes municipal, state, and federal authorities) is ready to jump into action at a moment’s notice. This is the first time this season they have been deployed.

Don’t panic . Nobody is expecting a hurricane. Bob Henson, a meteorologist and blogger with Weather Underground, said -

“Tropical Storm Jova will encounter a less conducive atmosphere for development, and it is unlikely that we will see a Hurricane Jova.”
