WIND: Tropical storm conditions will continue in portions
of the Tropical Storm Warning area in mainland Mexico tonight.
RAINFALL: Heavy rainfall is likely along the west coast of Mexico
from Nayarit to southern Sonora through late week as Nora lifts
northward through the Gulf of California. Rainfall of 8 to 12 inches
with maximum amounts of 20 inches is possible. This rainfall will
produce life-threatening flash flooding and mudslides.
Rainfall of 2 to 4 inches with maximum amounts of 6 inches is
possible in Baja California Sur and northern Sonora.
Toward the middle and latter part of the week, moisture associated
with Nora is likely to bring heavy rainfall and the potential for
scattered flash flooding to portions of the southwestern U.S. and
SURF: Swells generated by Nora are affecting the southwestern coast
of Mexico and will spread northward into the Gulf of California
through Monday. These swells are likely to cause life-threatening
surf and rip current conditions. Please consult products from your
local weather office.
