 DISCUSSION AND OUTLOOK ---------------------- At 500 PM PDT (0000 UTC), the center of Tropical Storm Rosa was located near latitude 28.2 North, longitude 115.8 West.  Rosa is moving toward the north-northeast near 10 mph (17 km/h), and this general motion is expected to continue through Tuesday.  On the forecast track, the center of Rosa will be near the coast of the Baja California peninsula within the warning area during the next several hours and then move across the peninsula into the northern Gulf of California later tonight.  Rosa's remnants are then expected to move across the Desert Southwest on Tuesday.
Maximum sustained winds are near 40 mph (65 km/h) with higher gusts.  Weakening is forecast through tonight while Rosa approaches and moves over the northern Baja California peninsula.  Rosa is expected to become a remnant low over the southwestern United States on Tuesday.
Tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 150 miles (240 km) from the center.  The Mexican automated station on Isla Cedros recently reported a wind gust of 45 mph (73 km/h).
The estimated minimum central pressure is 1001 mb (29.56 inches).
 HAZARDS AFFECTING LAND ---------------------- RAINFALL:  Rosa is expected to produce the following total rainfall accumulations through Wednesday morning:
Baja California and northwestern Sonora: 3 to 6 inches, isolated 10 inches.
Central and Southern Arizona: 2 to 4 inches. Isolated 6 inch totals are possible in the mountains of Central Arizona.
Rest of the Desert Southwest, Central Rockies, and Great Basin: 1 to 2 inches, isolated 4 inches.
These rainfall amounts may produce life-threatening flash flooding. Dangerous debris flows and landslides are also possible in mountainous terrain.
WIND:  Tropical storm conditions are likely occuring over the coast in portions of the warning area.  Tropical storm conditions are possible within the watch area by late this afternoon or tonight.
SURF:  Swells generated by Rosa will affect portions of the coasts of southwestern Mexico, most of the west coast of the Baja California peninsula, and southern California through Tuesday. These swells are likely to cause life-threatening surf and rip current conditions.  Please consult products from your local weather office.
