Through a statement, the National Meteorological Service (SMN) explained that the storm is still located some distance from the country’s coasts, 500 kilometers from Acapulco, Guerrero, and 815 kilometers south-southeast of Manzanillo, Colima. However, it will soon begin to approach the coastline and by Sunday, August 29, it will evolve into a category one hurricane on the Saffir-Simpson scale.

Although Nora will pass skimming the shores of Jalisco, it is not expected to make landfall in the state. It will continue its way through the water towards Baja California Sur, where according to current forecasts, it could impact sometime between the night of Monday 30 and the dawn of Tuesday, August 31.

The government of Mexico has issued a Hurricane Watch from Lazaro Cardenas to Cabo Corrientes, Mexico. A Tropical Storm Watch has been issued east of Lazaro Cardenas to Tecpan de Galeana, Mexico. These warnings could be extended in the coming hours to include Puerto Vallarta.

WIND: Hurricane conditions are possible within the hurricane watch area Saturday and Sunday, with tropical storm conditions possible by late Friday. Tropical storm conditions are possible within the tropical storm watch area beginning Friday or Friday night.

RAINFALL: Nora is expected to produce heavy rains over coastal sections of the Mexican states of Oaxaca, Guerrero, Michoacan, Colima, and Jalisco. Rainfall totals of 8 to 12 inches are forecast through this weekend with isolated maximum amounts of 20 inches possible. As a result, life-threatening flash flooding and mudslides may occur.

SURF: Swells generated by Nora are expected to begin affecting the southern coast of Mexico today and will spread northward to the southwestern coast of Mexico through the end of the week. These swells are likely to cause life-threatening surf and rip current conditions. Please consult products from your local weather office.
