Hurricane Rosa off Mexico could bring rip currents, flooding in US

Hurricane Rosa off Mexico could bring rip currents, flooding in US

Hurricane Rosa, in the eastern Pacific, on Thursday night was upgraded to a major category 4 hurricane with 125 miles per hour sustained winds. Some isolated areas might receive more. "Coastal areas are expected to received 0.25" to 0.50" of rain Tuesday into Wednesday, said Brandt Maxwell, a weather service forecaster.

Later next week, Hurricane Rosa is expected to weaken into a tropical depression as it passes over California, Nevada, Arizona, New Mexico, Utah and Colorado.

Hurricane Rosa weakened slightly off Mexico's Pacific Coast on Friday and is expected to increase surf and rip currents along the Southern California coast this weekend.

Hurricane Rosa is on track to drench northwest Mexico and parts of the southwest USA, prompting tropical storm warnings for the Baja California coast and flash flood alerts for parts of four U.S. states.




It is expected to become a tropical storm by late Sunday as it heads northeast toward the Baja California peninsula.

Forecasts call for heavy rainfall in the watch areas, which include Las Vegas, Phoenix and Salt Lake City, with possible flooding in slot canyons and normally dry washes and a potential for landslides and debris flows from recent wildfire burn scars.

Hurricane Rosa was a Category 4 hurricane on Thursday but was downgraded to a Category 2 by Friday night, according to the National Hurricane Center. It was moving west at 6 miles per hour.
