The National Hurricane Center is issuing advisories on Hurricane 
Dora, located several hundred miles southwest of the southern tip 
of the Baja California Peninsula.

Satellite data indicate a broad area of low pressure has formed a 
few hundred miles south of the coast of southwestern Mexico in

likely to form over the weekend as it moves west-northwestward or 
northwestward, parallel to but not far offshore of the southwestern 
coast of Mexico. Interests along the southwestern coast of Mexico 
should monitor the progress of this system during the next few days.
