Hurricane Willa, now a Category 4, is expected to land in the region late Tuesday or Wednesday.
Hurricane Willa, a huge and life threatening storm that's approaching category 5 status, could devastate Mexico's western coast, forecasters warn. As of 4 a.m. CST., Wilma had maximum sustained winds of 155 miles per hour - just 2 miles per hour short of a Category 5.
Hurricane-force winds extended 30 miles (45 kilometers) from the storm's center, and tropical storm-force winds were up to 105 miles (1650 kilometers) out.
The centre said Willa is expected make landfall late Tuesday or early Wednesday.
It was projected to weaken somewhat before hitting land but was still expected to be extremely risky.
Storm surge and large, destructive waves are likely along parts of the southwestern coast by Tuesday or Tuesday night, especially near where Willa's center will make landfall, the NHC says.
Consequently, we can expect torrential rainfall setting off a potentially damaging storm surge over the Pacific Coast of Mexico by the middle of the week.
Heavy rainfall will also cause risky conditions, as six to twelve inches are forecast to fall.
"While some weakening is forecast by tonight and Tuesday, Willa is expected to be a risky hurricane when it reaches the coast of Mexico late Tuesday or early Wednesday", the center said.
Farther inland, Willa is expected to produce rainfall amounts of 2 to 4 inches across portions of Zacateca, Durango, southeast Chihuahua, and Coahuila in Mexico, with local amounts up to 6 inches possible.
In its latest advisory, the NHC said Willa was about 230 miles south of Las Islas Marias, Mexico and some 175 miles south-southwest of Cabo Corrientes, Mexico, and was moving north at about 7 mph. It would also cause torrential downpours of about 70 to 150 mm of rain in parts of Southern Mexico with over 250 mm over pockets of Guerrero, Michoaca, Colima and Jalisco causing flash flooding and landslides.
