Once Super Typhoon Genevieve has now been downgraded to a tropical storm. The storm is located approximately 819 nautical miles west-northwest of Midway Island. It is currently tracking northwestward at 8 knots per hour over the past six hours.

Maximum significant wave height is 32 feet. Maximum sustained winds 70 knots gusting to 85 knots, with winds of 34 knots or higher occur within 80 to 105 miles of the cente,r and winds of 64 knots or higher occur within 15 miles of the center. No landmasses are currently threatened by this storm.

Genevieve is moving northwest and has continued to weaken. Unfavorable environmental factors has caused a rapid weakening over the past 12 hours. The storm will dissipate within 2-3 days, far southeast of the Aleutian islands.
