At 300 PM MDT (2100 UTC), the center of Tropical Storm Lidia was
located near latitude 25.5 North, longitude 111.9 West. Lidia is
moving toward the northwest near 12 mph (19 km/h), and this general
motion is expected to continue for the next 48 hours. On the

coast of the Baja California peninsula through Saturday and then
move west of the peninsula over the Pacific Ocean late Saturday or
Maximum sustained winds are near 60 mph (95 km/h) with higher gusts.
Weakening is forecast during the next couple of days while Lidia
interacts with the mountainous terrain of the Baja California
peninsula and moves over cold Pacific water. Lidia is expected to
become a remnant low by Saturday night or Sunday.
Tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 195 miles (315 km)
mainly to the east of the center. A Mexican automated station near
Loreto recently reported sustained winds of 53 mph (85 km/h).
The estimated minimum central pressure is 992 mb (29.30 inches).

6 to 12 inches across the Mexican states of Baja California Sur into
Baja California, Sinaloa and the coastal section of Sonora, with

California Sur. Near the coast, the surge will be accompanied by
large and destructive waves.

of southwestern and western Mexico and southern portions of Baja
