Hurricane Hilary

Posted by Bret B on September 22, 2011, 9:58 am

The old TD-9E just now became a Cat 1 hurricane. The projected track ( is still well offshore as it passes by us as a Cat 3 hurricane this weekend. Closest approach is shown as 160 miles on Saturday. It doesn't look like a very wide storm, so we may not get much wind and rain, but probably some waves. The watches and warnings don't include our town yet, but the TS watch extends N. to Manzanillo for now.

The GOES-West Eastern Pacific loop ( shows a huge red/gray blob coming up the coast, but this is NOT the hurricane. It's just a big thunderstorm complex well in front of the hurricane. On the Western Atlantic loop ( you can see them both. I think this blob is too far offshore to give us much rain as it approaches later today.

More to come if anything changes...
