SUMMARY OF 900 AM MDT...1500 UTC...INFORMATION ---------------------------------------------- LOCATION...19.3N 110.2W ABOUT 250 MI...400 KM S OF THE SOUTHERN TIP OF BAJA CALIFORNIA MAXIMUM SUSTAINED WINDS...75 MPH...120 KM/H PRESENT MOVEMENT...WNW OR 300 DEGREES AT 13 MPH...20 KM/H MINIMUM CENTRAL PRESSURE...990 MB...29.24 INCHES WATCHES AND WARNINGS -------------------- There are no coastal watches or warnings in effect. DISCUSSION AND 48-HOUR OUTLOOK ------------------------------ At 900 AM MDT (1500 UTC), the center of Hurricane Dora was located near latitude 19.3 North, longitude 110.2 West. Dora is moving toward the west-northwest near 13 mph (20 km/h. This general motion with some decrease in forward speed is expected today and Wednesday, with a turn toward the west expected by Thursday. On the forecast track, the center of Dora is expected to pass just north of Socorro Island later today, and remain well south of the Baja California peninsula. Maximum sustained winds have decreased to near 75 mph (120 km/h) with higher gusts. Continued weakening is forecast during the next 48 hours, and Dora could become a remnant low by Thursday. Hurricane-force winds extend outward up to 15 miles (30 km) from the center and tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 45 miles (75 km). The estimated minimum central pressure is 990 mb (29.24 inches). HAZARDS AFFECTING LAND ---------------------- SURF: Swells generated by Dora are affecting portions of the coast of southwest Mexico. These swells are expected to spread northwestward and begin affecting portions of the coast of the southern Baja California peninsula today through Wednesday. These swells are likely to cause life-threatening surf and rip current conditions. Please consult products from your local weather office.

  • Hurricane Dora Forecast Discussion Number 11
    Issued at 900 AM MDT Tue Jun 27 2017 000 WTPZ44 KNHC 271433 TCDEP4 Hurricane Dora Discussion Number 11 NWS National Hurricane Center Miami FL EP042017 900 AM MDT Tue Jun 27 2017 Dora's satellite presentation continues to degrade. Although an eye is still evident, the coverage and depth of deep convection has been diminishing. The current intensity is set at 65 kt based on a blend of T- and CI-numbers from TAFB and SAB. The cyclone is currently traversing sub-26 deg C SSTs, and the waters beneath Dora will continue to cool for the next couple of days. The system should weaken to a tropical storm later today and degenerate into a remnant low in 48 hours, or less. The official intensity forecast is in close agreement with the model consensus ICON. Center fixes yield a continued west-northwestward motion of 300/11 kt. A mid-level subtropical ridge to the north of Dora should maintain the west-northwestward motion, with some decrease in forward speed, over the next day or two. In 48-72 hours, a more westward track of the weakening cyclone is anticipated. The official track forecast is a little north of the previous one, but south of the latest model consensus.
