Early morning GOES-16 one-minute satellite imagery confirms that the small circulation of Ileana has dissipated within the northern portion of Hurricane John's larger circulation.

The U.S. National Hurricane Center said Tropical Storm Ileana was vanishing into the larger system of Hurricane John, which already had maximum sustained winds of 105 miles per hour (165 kph) and was forecast to grow into a major hurricane Tuesday night or Wednesday while south of the Baja California Peninsula.

"The CSU Tropical Meteorology Project team is predicting a total of nine additional named storms to form after August 1", the university said in a news release.

So far this season we have had Subtropical Storm Alberto, which formed in May, as well as Hurricane Beryl and Hurricane Chris. It was centered about 1,255 miles (2,020 kilometers) west-southwest of the southern tip of the Baja.

Meteorologist Melissa Dye says the southern half of the island should brace for winds of 35 miles per hour (56.3 kph) or higher.

The National Weather Service says Hurricane Hector is expected to pass south of the Big Island Tuesday night and Wednesday as it moves westward.

Subtropical Storm Debby is expected to fall apart in a couple days and is not a threat to land, the National Hurricane Center said.
