 DISCUSSION AND OUTLOOK ---------------------- At 900 AM MDT (1500 UTC), the center of Hurricane Rosa was located near latitude 16.1 North, longitude 111.4 West. Rosa is moving toward the west-northwest near 10 mph (17 km/h), and this general motion is forecast to continue for the next two days.  A turn to the northwest is expected by Saturday morning.
Maximum sustained winds have quickly increased to near 75 mph (120 km/h) with higher gusts, and rapid strengthening is forecast to continue through tonight.  Afterward, strengthening should continue at a slower rate through Friday.
Hurricane-force winds extend outward up to 25 miles (35 km) from the center and tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 80 miles (130 km).
The estimated minimum central pressure is 990 mb (29.24 inches).
 HAZARDS AFFECTING LAND ---------------------- SURF:  Swells generated by Rosa will affect portions of the coast of southwestern Mexico and the southern Baja California Peninsula late this week and over the weekend.  These swells are likely to cause life-threatening surf and rip current conditions.  Please consult products from your local weather office.
