Hurricane Emilia About to Hit Dry Air

Hurricane Emilia, currently a Category 2 hurricane, is about to hit a wide swath of dry air, which should be the final blow for this hurricane, which managed to reach Category 4 strength.

Emilia has winds reaching 115 MPH, and a central pressure reading of 960 millibars. There are no buoys near Emilia, making confirmation of this very difficult. Regardless, the weakening process will begin as Emilia continues to trudge on a westward course. There is little doubt in my mind that this is indeed the end of the road for Emilia. However, the National Hurricane Center believes Emilia will keep on keepin' on and stay at tropical depression strength through the next few days, and possibly onwards.
