T.S. Odile update
Posted by deanna on October 11, 2008, 9:01 am
Odile speeded up a little during the night and has |
moved closer to Manzanillo. It's now large enough to maybe bring us some wind and rain before making a turn to the west. Here's the latest update from NHC:
AT 500 AM PDT...1200Z...THE CENTER OF TROPICAL STORM ODILE WAS LOCATED NEAR LATITUDE 16.8 NORTH...LONGITUDE 101.1 WEST OR ABOUT 90
MILES... 145 KM...WEST OF ACAPULCO MEXICO AND ABOUT 85 MILES...140KM... SOUTH-SOUTHEAST OF ZIHUATANEJO MEXICO.
ODILE IS MOVING TOWARD THE NORTHWEST NEAR 14 MPH...22 KM/HR. A CONTINUED MOTION TO THE NORTHWEST OR WEST-NORTHWEST IS EXPECTED
OVER THE NEXT 24 HOURS...WITH A TURN TO THE WEST AT A SLOWER SPEED EXPECTED ON SUNDAY. THE FORECAST TRACK TAKES THE CENTER OF ODILE VERY CLOSE TO THE COAST OF MEXICO...AND ONLY A SLIGHT DEVIATION TO
THE RIGHT OF THE EXPECTED TRACK WOULD BRING THE CENTER ONSHORE WITHIN THE WARNING AREA.
MAXIMUM SUSTAINED WINDS ARE NEAR 65 MPH...100 KM/HR...WITH HIGHER GUSTS. SOME ADDITIONAL INCREASE IN STRENGTH IS POSSIBLE OVER THE NEXT 24 HOURS...AND ODILE COULD BECOME A HURRICANE LATER TODAY OR TOMORROW.
TROPICAL STORM FORCE WINDS EXTEND OUTWARD UP TO 70 MILES...110 KM FROM THE CENTER.
The next bulletin is at 10 AM.
