DISCUSSION AND OUTLOOK
----------------------
At 900 AM MDT (1500 UTC), the center of Hurricane Elida was located
near latitude 21.3 North, longitude 113.8 West. Elida is moving
toward the northwest near 14 mph (22 km/h).  A west-northwestward
to northwestward motion with a decrease in forward speed is expected
during the next several days.
 
Maximum sustained winds have increased to near 100 mph (155 km/h) 
with higher gusts.  Rapid weakening is expected to begin tonight as
Elida moves over colder water, and the cyclone is expected to
weaken to a tropical storm on Wednesday and degenerate to a remnant
low on Thursday.
 
Hurricane-force winds extend outward up to 15 miles (30 km) from the
center and tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 70 miles
(110 km).
 
The estimated minimum central pressure is 975 mb (28.80 inches).
 
 
HAZARDS AFFECTING LAND
----------------------
SURF:  Swells generated by Elida are expected to affect portions of
the coast of west-central Mexico and the southern Baja California
peninsula during the next day or two.  These swells are likely to
cause life-threatening surf and rip current conditions.  Please
consult products from your local weather office.
