They are predicting 4 to 6 inches.   I think that is based on Newton keeping up this fast pace.  If it stalls over the sea, it could be a lot more.  I think you can expect outer bands to hit SC by late tonight.  That does not necessary mean rain but certainly the possibility of it.  The best outcome is for it to move quickly accross the gulf.  Right now it is moving over some very warm water.  Should start interacting with land early in the morning and weaken a little.  Wednesday is going to be a crappy day in paradise.

I just wanted to thank you RichD for all your valuable insight. I'm sure they're are plenty of other members that appreciate your advice and knowledge. This is really the only news of it I'm able to follow as it pertains to SC.

Thanks for that. I am not an expert, just read what the experts say and try to make sense of it. This storm is serious. At 6pm tomorrow it will still be a hurricane and will be about 150 miles from San Carlos. Wind goes counter clockwise around the eye and it will pass to the West of us. That means winds starting from the East and shifting to the South and later shifting to the West as it passes. Strongest winds will be from the South, late Tuesday night into early Wednesday morning. Beach front facing South and West is going to take a beating. Hope the damage is not too much.  Swells from the West could continue to late Wednesday.

We noticed a lot of boats that are always moored in the Bahia exposed to the South winds are not there, they have been moved. I don't remember for sure, but I think I remember 12 or 13 that were torn loose and on the bank during Jimena. Tomorrow might be the day to get everything you need if you have no water or power for a few days. Think of your pets if they are outside pets. Get your tarp over your bed, (get prepared), LOL. Ron

Cabo got hammered last night.  New forecast shows Newton still a hurricane at midnight as it comes within 40 miles of SC.  Kino will get hit hard tonight.  Get those candles out and fresh batteries for flashlights.  Not much time left to make preparations.  I sincerely hope everyone took this storm seriously and made preparations.

A quick note and some good news. 9am advisory shows some weakening as the eye is over land. Forward speed still 17mph so lets hope it moves quickly over the warm water of the SOC. Still a big threat not a time for complacency. If power stays on all night, consider it a minor miracle.

I've checked with my school and right now there is no indication that the schools will be closed in the Gusaymas area. Classes are now in session and I'm planning to teach my class at 1 PM.

Governors office has said schools will close 6th and 7th, apparently that is not the case, maybe late school today and all tomorrow ?

RD , great job as always, I see latest MX Gov advice is hurricane warning from Guaymas to Bahio Kino ..... Hope this thing dies down before crossing the sea.

Good luck to all.

The longer it stays over land, the better. Currently it is West of La Paz traveling NW but turning towards the North. At this angle, it should cross about 110 miles of very warm water but if the forward speed holds up it will cross the gulf in only 6 hours or so. Shear conditions may help to keep it from gaining strength during this time. La Paz winds down to 44 mph now. Mulege might get hit again. They have had some bad luck the last few years.

Thank you, RichD.  When I asked my better half where was the best place to get local information, you were recommended!

I am on my way to teach a 1PM class. My school is out normally at 2:30PM -- in 2 1/2 hours. So, I doubt we will close today.

My husband, who is down there, just let me know that the military is evacuating La Manga and other beach areas and that there is a possibility of a tornado. Be safe.

According to my husband, who just e-mailed me, it is pouring. He had to drive to a doctor's appointment and had his wipers on full power and still could hardly see.
