Monday AM Jimena update

Posted by deanna on August 31, 2009, 10:29 am

The 10 AM update shows Jimena still on track to
pass through this latitude later today, approx.
300 miles offshore. Tropical force winds extend
out 80 miles. NOAA is sending out a hurricane hunter aircraft to fly through the storm this afternoon, which will pinpoint exact location and wind speed for the first time. Computer models have been in almost perfect agreement on Jimena's track for the past two days, so I wouldn't worry too much about any dramatic course changes at this point. The Mexican government has posted hurricane warnings for most of Baja - looks like Cabo may take a direct hit from a Cat. 4 storm.

Total rainfall is only .46/inch for yesterday and
so far this morning - synchronized bird pissing
pretty much describes it (thank you for that image, Jane). If the circulation of Jimena doesn't tighten up too much today, and those long arms keep brushing us as it spins by, we'll continue to get a little rain before it's gone.

From up here on the hill, looks and sounds like the waves are picking up - need a report from sea level, Daniel.
