On July 19 the storm was centered at about 11.5 degrees North latitude and had a central pressure of 925 millibars. This is one of the lowest (and may have been the lowest) central pressures ever recorded for a storm in the Pacific. The overall size of the storm is very impressive, covering some 8 degrees in latitude. A strom of this magnitude encountering Hawaii would have done major damage.
By July 22 the storm had moved 5 degrees further north and hence moved over slightly cooler water. The storm rapidly weakened as it lost its main energy source and now the pressure has risen to 991 millibars and maximum winds have decreased considerably. All Hawaii would see is a lot of rain but essentially no wind damage.
