Track of TS 09E

At 8:00 PM PDT (0300 UTC) the center of Tropical Storm Hilary (09E) was located near latitude 14.4 north, longitude 97.2 west.

Hilary is moving toward the west-northwest near 7 mph (11 km/h) and this general motion is expected to continue during the next 24 to 48 hours.

On the forecast track the core of Hilary will continue to move parallel to the southwest coast of Mexico but any deviation to the north of the track could bring stronger winds to the coast.

Maximum sustained winds are near 50 mph (85 km/h) with higher gusts. Strengthening is forecast during the next 48 hours and Hilary is expected to become a hurricane late tomorrow. Tropical storm force winds extend outward up to 50 miles (85 km) from the center. Estimated minimum central pressure is 1000 mb (29.53 inches).

Hazards affecting land include wind and rainfall. Heavy squalls are probably occurring along portions of the southern coast of Mexico already. However, winds of tropical storm force should begin to affect a portion of the coast soon, and should spread westward along the tropical storm warning area during the next 24 to 36 hours. Hilary is expected to produce rainfall amounts of 3 to 5 inches across portions of southern Mexico with isolated amounts of 10 inches possible.

Track of TS 09E

Hurricane Frank (09E) is passing south of Socorro Island. The center of the system is located near latitude 18.2 North, longitude 111.2 West.

Frank is moving toward the west-northwest near 9 mph (15 km/hr). A turn toward the northwest with a gradual decrease in forward speed is expected during the next day or so. Frank is forecast to turn northward on Saturday.

Maximum sustained winds are near 85 mph (140 km/hr) with higher gusts. Frank is a category one hurricane on the Saffir-Simpson hurricane wind scale. Gradual weakening is expected Friday followed by a more steady weakening on Saturday as frank moves over cool waters.

Hurricane force winds extend outward up to 15 miles (30 km) from the center, and tropical storm force winds extend outward up to 80 miles (130 km). Estimated minimum central pressure is 980 mb (28.94 inches).

Tropical Storm Frank (09E) was upgraded to hurricane status, and has since strengthened a little more.

The system is located near 17.2N 107.5W, about 250 mi (405 km) south-southwest of Cabo Corrientes, Mexico, and about 425 mi (680 km) south-southeast of the southern tip of Baja California.

The system is presently moving west-northwest at 14 mph (22 km/hr), and this motion is expected to continue for the next day or so. A reduction in forward speed is likely to occur on Friday as Frank moves over cooler water.

Frank is a category one hurricane on the Saffir-Simpson hurricane wind scale. Maximum sustained winds are at 80 mph (130 km/hr), with higher gusts. Minimum central pressure is 984 mb (29.06 inches). Hurricane force winds extend outward up to 15 miles (30 km) from the center, and tropical storm force winds extend outward up to 70 miles (110 km).
