Here’s the latest from the National Hurricane Center:
- Hurricane Seymour was located about 450 miles southwest of Manzanillo, Mexico, as of late Monday morning.
Seymour is forecast to strengthen and become a major Category 3 hurricane on Tuesday before weakening later in the week.
- This system is moving away from Mexico and is no direct threat to land at this time.
- Seymour is the 13th hurricane of the 2016 northeast Pacific Ocean hurricane season.
The center of Hurricane Seymour was located near latitude 15.2 North, longitude 109.8 West. Seymour is moving toward the west-northwest near 15 mph (24 km/h), and this motion with some decrease in forward speed is expected during the next couple of days.
Maximum sustained winds have increased to near 75 mph (120 km/h) with higher gusts. Additional strengthening is likely, and Seymour is expected to become a major hurricane on Tuesday.
Hurricane-force winds extend outward up to 10 miles (20 km) from the center, and tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 70 miles (110 km).
The estimated minimum central pressure is 995 mb (29.39 inches).
