At 1 PM MDT today, Category 4 Hurricane Hilary was located about 130 miles SSW of Lazaro Cardenas, Mexico. Hilary is moving off to the west at 8 mph.

GFDL Model Forecast Track Of Hilary.

The million dollar question for late next week is whether or not a Western US trough of low pressure, will pull the remnant moisture of Hurricane Hilary northward into the Desert Southwest. Its too early to know for sure. Stay tuned.
