HURRICANE WATCH: Dolores has intensified into a hurricane with maximum sustained winds of 75 mph with higher gusts. The storm is located about 190 miles to the southwest of Manzanillo, Mexico, and is tracking west-northwest, parallel to the coastline. Dolores will continue to intensify over the next few days and become a major hurricane on Wednesday.

We also have Tropical Storm Enrique which is centered 1,225 miles west-southwest of the southern tip of Baja California. The tropical storm is moving northwest at 12 mph. Enrique is forecast to stay over warm water, however, long-range models suggest that unfavorable conditions for intensification exist to the northwest of the storm, and this may prevent further strengthening by the middle of this week. Current forecasts do not have the storm reaching hurricane strength.

Stay tuned… things happen fast in the tropics!

By Tuesday morning we’ll return to square one with inconsistent knee to maybe waist high wind swell.
