Hot Weekend!

A deep upper-level low pressure trough was centered over the Great Lakes Region at noon today. Meanwhile our old summer nemesis, the sprawling Western upper-level ridge of high pressure, was centered near Reno, Nevada. The ridge will dominate our weather over the weekend.

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. She has sustained winds of 145 mph with gusts near 175 mph. Her central pressure was down to 942 millibars, or 27.82 inches of mercury. Hilary has a 15 nm diameter eye.

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.

The Truth Is Stranger Than Fiction!

  1. I hope this Hilary comes up to N Chihuahua, and stalls, spinning copious soaking rains into the SW deserts, including Abq, Carlsbad, etc. If beggars can be choosers!
