Pamela an increasing hurricane threat to the Pacific coast of Mexico

Tropical Storm Pamela is on the verge of hurricane status this afternoon as it moves slowly northwestwards in the Eastern Pacific ocean.

As is common with late season storms in the basin, Pamela is expected to recurve towards the northeast and strike Mexico, where Hurricane Watches are now in effect.
The storm is expected to make landfall on Wednesday, with tropical storm conditions possible on the southern tip of Baja California, along with the expected landfall area in southern Sinaloa.
Pamela could deliver over 10 inches (250mm) of rain along with hurricane force conditions, and its remnants could also cause trouble in Texas at the end of the week.
