DISCUSSION AND 48-HOUR OUTLOOK
At 300 AM MDT (0900 UTC), the center of Tropical Storm Newton was
located near latitude 17.9 North, longitude 106.1 West. Newton is
moving toward the north-northwest near 10 mph (17 km/h). A
northwestward or north-northwestward motion with an increase in
forward speed is expected later today and Tuesday. On the forecast
track, the center of Newton will be near or over the southern tip
of the Baja California peninsula Tuesday morning.
Maximum sustained winds have increased to near 45 mph (75 km/h) with
higher gusts. Strengthening is forecast during the next 36 hours or
so, and Newton could be near hurricane intensity when it approaches
the extreme southern Baja California peninsula Tuesday morning.
Tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 70 miles (110 km)
from the center.
The estimated minimum central pressure is 998 mb (29.47 inches).
HAZARDS AFFECTING LAND
WIND: Hurricane conditions are expected to reach the coast within
the hurricane warning area by Tuesday morning. Winds are expected
to first reach tropical storm strength by late tonight, making
outside preparations difficult or dangerous. Preparations to protect
life and property should be rushed to completion. Hurricane and
tropical storm conditions are possible within the hurricane watch
area on Tuesday.
Tropical storm conditions are expected within the tropical storm
warning area along the southwestern coast of Mexico today. Tropical
storm conditions are possible within the tropical storm watch areas
by late Tuesday.
RAINFALL: Newton is expected to produce total rainfall
accumulations of 5 to 10 inches for coastal portions of the Mexican
states of Michoacan, Colima, Jalisco, Nayarit, Sinaloa, as well as
much of the state of Baja California Sur, with isolated maximum
amounts of 15 inches through Tuesday night. These rains could
produce life-threatening flash floods and mud slides, especially in
areas of mountainous terrain.
SURF: Swells generated by Newton are expected to increase near the
coast of southwestern Mexico and the southern portion of the Baja
California peninsula during the next day or so. These swells are
likely to cause life-threatening surf and rip current conditions.
