DISCUSSION AND OUTLOOK
----------------------
At 800 PM PDT (0300 UTC), the center of Hurricane Elida was located
near latitude 22.5 North, longitude 116.5 West. Elida is moving
toward the west-northwest near 15 mph (24 km/h), and this general
motion should continue with some decrease in forward speed through
Wednesday.  A turn toward the northwest is expected on Wednesday 
night and Thursday.
 
Maximum sustained winds have decreased to near 85 mph (140 
km/h) with higher gusts. Rapid weakening is expected during the 
next day or so as Elida moves over colder water, and the 
cyclone is expected to weaken to a tropical storm on Wednesday
and degenerate to 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 980 mb (28.94 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.
