The main and enhanced images offer a view of Hilary (09E) a few days ago, while still at hurricane stregnth. The animated imagery shows the recent track of the system, which has been downgraded to a tropical storm.

As of 2 p.m. PDT (2100 UTC) September 29, Tropical Storm Hilary is located within 15 nautical miles of 21.6°N 120.7°W, about 695 mi (1120 km) west of the southern tip of Baja California. Maximum sustained winds are 45 knots (50 mph, 85 km/h), with stronger gusts. Minimum central pressure is 1000 mbar (hPa; 29.53 InHg), and the system is moving north-northwest at 8 kt (9 mph, 15 km/h). Tropical storm force winds extend outward up to 175 miles (280 km) from the center of Hilary.

The system began on September 18, as a broad area of low pressure associated with minimal shower and thunderstorm activity that began to show signs of organization, while located several hundred miles to the south-southeast of the Gulf of Tehuantepec.

Moving towards the west, and west-northwest, the disturbance gained enough organization early on September 21 to be declared as a tropical depression, the ninth of the season. Continuing to organize, the depression strengthened into a tropical storm several hours later.

On September 22, the meteorologists declared Hilary as a Category 1 hurricane, becoming the seventh of the season. On September 22, it rapidly strengthened into a small, Category 4 hurricane, featuring a well-defined eye and very deep convection.

The storm’s outer bands produced heavy rainfall over Chipas and Tabasco, with accumulations in Tabasco reaching 8.58 in (218 mm) in 24 hours. Several rivers across the region overflowed their banks and flooded nearby areas. In Villahermosa heavy rain collapsed drains and many streets were flooded. In addition, cars were stranded in floodwaters. Across Colima, waves reached 9 to 15 ft (2.7 to 4.6 m).

At 2:00 PM PDT (2100 UTC), the eye of Hurricane Hilary (09E)  was located near latitude 16.3 north, longitude 103.1 west. Hilary is moving toward the west near 8 mph (13 km/h) and this motion is expected to continue for the next two days.

On the forecast track, the core of Hilary should continue to move farther offshore of the southwestern coast of Mexico today. Maximum sustained winds remain near 145 mph (230 km/h) with higher gusts. Hilary is a category four hurricane on the Saffir-Simpson hurricane wind scale. The cyclone is expected to remain a major hurricane during the next two days.

Hurricane force winds extend outward up to 30 miles (45 km) from the center, and tropical storm force winds extend outward up to 85 miles (140 km). Estimated minimum central pressure is 942 mb (27.82 inches).

Hazards affecting land include rainfall and surf. Hilary is expected to produce additional rainfall amounts of 1 to 3 inches along the coasts of Gguerrero and Michoacan in southern Mexico. Swells generated by Hilary are affecting portions of the coast of southwestern Mexico. These swells are likely causing life-threatening surf and rip current conditions.
