‘ hurricane that just made landfall in Mexico is triggering flood concerns in parts of southern California ‘

‘ Heavy rains will drench southern California Friday -- potentially bringing several months to a year's worth of rain to a normally arid landscape. But that's not all: As the storm moves north, strong winds -- far from providing immediate relief from California's climate crisis-driven heat wave -- actually could push already record temperatures higher in some places.

Kay is expected to remain at hurricane strength until it's around 250 miles from San Diego -- something only four other storms have done since 1950, according to the National Weather Service -- before weakening as it moves toward the US West Coast. ‘


‘ Rainfall of 2 to 4 inches, possibly up to around 8 inches, is expected throughout the mountainous terrain of Southern California, especially on the eastern slopes.

A warning of moderate risk of excessive rainfall -- Level 3 of 4 -- is in effect for Friday over portions of Southern California and far southwest Arizona, with a slight risk -- Level 2 of 4 -- in effect by Saturday across more of Southern California, western Arizona and far southern Nevada. ‘

Technically it's not a hurricane, it's the offshoot of a cyclone that brought in clouds a bit lower temps and the hope of a Saturday deluge of rain that made it better here in LA.

With a little luck it'll make it to Sacramento and environs before either it or Hal blows out. burnout smiley

We had some thunder off in the distance this morning (I think offshore). Been mostly cloudy/muggy all day here, but temps in high 80° 's spike into the 90° 's when the sun peeks thru. Definitely need rain; just hope it comes in manageable quantities.

Let's hope it holds it bladder until it's over Lake Mead, then lets loose a couple years worth of rain...
OK, that's unlikely...

“ Hurricane Kay Forecast Discussion “


[www.nhc.noaa.gov]



“ A tropical cyclone is a rotating low-pressure weather system that has organized thunderstorms but no fronts (a boundary separating two air masses of different densities). Tropical cyclones with maximum sustained surface winds of less than 39 miles per hour (mph) are called tropical depressions. Those with maximum sustained winds of 39 mph or higher are called tropical storms.

When a storm's maximum sustained winds reach 74 mph, it is called a hurricane. The Saffir-Simpson Hurricane Wind Scale is a 1 to 5 rating, or category, based on a hurricane's maximum sustained winds. The higher the category, the greater the hurricane's potential for property damage.

Hurricanes originate in the Atlantic basin, which includes the Atlantic Ocean, Caribbean Sea, and Gulf of Mexico, the eastern North Pacific Ocean, and, less frequently, the central North Pacific Ocean. “

Still waiting for you to produce anything to support your assertion...

That's not a useful link. A hurricane IS a cyclone and strong cyclones occurring in the eastern North Pacific are hurricanes [oceanservice.noaa.gov].



"In science it often happens that scientists say, 'You know that's a really good argument; my position is mistaken,' and then they would actually change their minds and you never hear that old view from them again. They really do it. It doesn't happen as often as it should, because scientists are human and change is sometimes painful. But it happens every day. I cannot recall the last time something like that happened in politics or religion." (1987) -- Carl Sagan

Later downgraded to a tropical storm, perhaps that is what RgrF is referring to.

A peek at my Long Beach, CA iPhone Weather page doesn't show any rain predicted for So Cal this week.

Curious!
