Hurricane Max Special Discussion Number   5
NWS National Hurricane Center Miami FL       EP162017
700 AM CDT Thu Sep 14 2017

Radar imagery from Acapulco, Mexico, indicates that Max has
continued to improve in structure and now has a well-defined eye
and closed eyewall.  An eye has also occasionally been evident in
infrared satellite imagery.  Based on these signs, Max has been
upgraded to a hurricane with 65-kt winds.

Max appears to be cruising eastward just offshore the coast of
Mexico.  However, the hurricane is still expected to move inland
later today.  The 12-hour point has been adjusted southward and
increased to 75 kt to account for Max's recent motion, possible
delayed landfall, and increased opportunity to strengthen before it
reaches land.

The government of Mexico has changed the Tropical Storm Warning and
Hurricane Watch from Zihuatanejo to Punta Maldonado to a Hurricane
Warning.  Life-threatening flooding rainfall is still expected in
portions of the states of Guerrero and Oaxaca.

This special advisory is being issued in lieu of the regularly
scheduled 7 AM CDT intermediate public advisory.
