Op de GOES satelliet is te zien dat aan het zuidoosten een band met onweersbuien ontstaat.
Andres gaat richting het noordwesten met 17 km/u en zal later richting het noorden gaan en verder afzwakken tot een tropische storm.
Echter de hoge golven zijn nog steeds levensgevaarlijk voor surfers aan de west kust van Baja Californië.

Infrared-light imagery from NOAA's GOES-West satellite on June 2 shows a weaker Hurricane Andres. The weakening of the storm is apparent in the storm's structure, as it has lost its eye and no longer appears perfectly rounded.
The GOES-West image, taken at 1200 UTC (8 a.m. EDT) was created by the NASA/NOAA GOES Project at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland. The image also shows fragmented bands of thunderstorms southeast of the center.
At 5 a.m. EDT (0900 UTC), the center of Hurricane Andres was located near latitude 17.2 North, longitude 122.2 West. About 890 miles (1,430 km) west-southwest of the southern tip of Baja California. Andres is moving toward the northwest near 10 mph (17 km/h). This general motion is expected to continue today, followed by a turn toward the north and a decrease in forward speed on Wednesday.
Maximum sustained winds have decreased to near 105 mph (165 kph) with higher gusts. Continued weakening is forecast during the next 48 hours, and Andres is expected to become a tropical storm tonight or Wednesday. The estimated minimum central pressure is 969 millibars (28.62 inches).
Even though Andres is weakening it is still generating ocean swells that affecting portions of the west coast of the Baja California peninsula. The National Hurricane Center (NHC) cautioned that these swells are likely to cause life-threatening surf and rip current conditions.
NHC Forecaster Daniel Brown noted that Andres will soon be moving over sea surface temperatures of less than 26 degrees Celsius and into a drier and more stable environment. "These unfavorable conditions will cause steady weakening, and Andres is forecast to weaken to a tropical storm within 24 hours, and become a post-tropical cyclone in 72 hours, if not sooner."

On June 1, RapidScat showed Andres' strongest sustained winds (dark red) near 35 meters per second (78.2 mph/126 kph) southeast of the center.

Remnants of Tropical Storm Blanca Bring Record-Breaking Rainfall to Southern CaliforniaTuesday’s particularly wet bout of June Gloom, brought on by remnants of Tropical Storm Blanca, broke rainfall records for the date around Southern California.
While the totals were small, the band of showers brought much-needed moisture to the dry region.
The Santa Barbara airport got .30 inches of rain, up from the old record of .04 inches set on June 9, 1977, according to the National Weather Service.
Lancaster received 0.01 inches. It was a minuscule amount, but still higher than the previous record trace amount that fell June 9, 1990.
