 DISCUSSION AND OUTLOOK ---------------------- At 800 AM PDT (1500 UTC), the center of Hurricane Rosa was located near latitude 20.5 North, longitude 118.4 West. Rosa is moving toward the north near 12 mph (19 km/h), and this general motion is expected to continue through tonight.  A turn toward the north-northeast with an increase in forward speed is expected on Sunday.  On the forecast track, the center of Rosa will approach the central and northern Baja California peninsula on Monday.
Maximum sustained winds are near 105 mph (165 km/h) with higher gusts.  Rosa is expected to start weakening tonight, and it is expected to weaken to a tropical storm late Sunday or on Monday.
Hurricane-force winds extend outward up to 30 miles (45 km) from the center and tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 160 miles (260 km).
The estimated minimum central pressure is 968 mb (28.59 inches).
 HAZARDS AFFECTING LAND ---------------------- RAINFALL:  Between late Sunday and the middle of next week, Rosa is expected to produce the following total rainfall accumulations:
Baja California and northwestern Sonora: 3 to 6 inches, isolated 10 inches.
The Mogollon Rim of Arizona: 2 to 4 inches, isolated 6 inches.
Rest of the Desert Southwest, Central Rockies, and Great Basin: 1 to 2 inches, isolated 4 inches.
These rainfall amounts would produce life-threatening flash flooding and dangerous debris flows in the deserts, as well as landslides in mountainous terrain.
SURF:  Swells generated by Rosa will affect portions of the coasts of southwestern Mexico, most of the Baja California Peninsula, and southern California during this weekend.  These swells are likely to cause life-threatening surf and rip current conditions.  Please consult products from your local weather office.
 NEXT ADVISORY ------------- Next intermediate advisory at 1100 AM PDT. Next complete advisory at 200 PM PDT.
