Hurricane Willa in eastern Pacific is expected to make landfall this evening.  Possible heavy rainfall in South Texas and Texas Gulf Coast later this week.

<span-size:10.5pt;font-family:"Courier New";color:black"> 

<span-size:10.5pt;font-family:"Courier New";color:black">Willa's overall satellite presentation has not changed much during

<span-size:10.5pt;font-family:"Courier New";color:black">the past few hours, with some evidence of a small inner core and

<span-size:10.5pt;font-family:"Courier New";color:black">and an outer eyewall.  Recent microwave data and reports from an

<span-size:10.5pt;font-family:"Courier New";color:black">Air Force Reserve Hurricane Hunter aircraft also indicate that

<span-size:10.5pt;font-family:"Courier New";color:black">concentric eyewalls are present.  The reconnaissance aircraft just

<span-size:10.5pt;font-family:"Courier New";color:black">completed its first pass into the center and found peak 700-mb

<span-size:10.5pt;font-family:"Courier New";color:black">flight-level winds of 107 kt, and SFMR winds of 99 kt. The plane

<span-size:10.5pt;font-family:"Courier New";color:black">reported a minimum pressure of 966 mb, which was higher than

<span-size:10.5pt;font-family:"Courier New";color:black">previously estimated.  Based on the preliminary aircraft data and a

<span-size:10.5pt;font-family:"Courier New";color:black">blend of Dvorak T- and CI-numbers from the various agencies, the

<span-size:10.5pt;font-family:"Courier New";color:black">initial intensity is set at 110 kt.  The plane should provide a

<span-size:10.5pt;font-family:"Courier New";color:black">more accurate assessment of Willa's intensity as it continues its

<span-size:10.5pt;font-family:"Courier New";color:black">mission during the new few hours.

<span-size:10.5pt;font-family:"Courier New";color:black"> 

<span-size:10.5pt;font-family:"Courier New";color:black">Willa is moving a little east of due north or 010/5 kt.  A

<span-size:10.5pt;font-family:"Courier New";color:black">shortwave trough approaching the west coast of the Baja California

<span-size:10.5pt;font-family:"Courier New";color:black">peninsula is expected to cause Willa to turn north-northeastward

<span-size:10.5pt;font-family:"Courier New";color:black">this morning, and the hurricane should accelerate northeastward by

<span-size:10.5pt;font-family:"Courier New";color:black">tonight.  The core of Willa will move over the Isla Marias within

<span-size:10.5pt;font-family:"Courier New";color:black">the next few hours, and make landfall along the west-central coast

<span-size:10.5pt;font-family:"Courier New";color:black">of Mexico this evening. The track guidance is in good agreement,

<span-size:10.5pt;font-family:"Courier New";color:black">and the updated NHC track forecast is very similar to the previous

<span-size:10.5pt;font-family:"Courier New";color:black">advisory.

<span-size:10.5pt;font-family:"Courier New";color:black"> 

<span-size:10.5pt;font-family:"Courier New";color:black">Although Willa is moving over an area of deep warm water, increasing

<span-size:10.5pt;font-family:"Courier New";color:black">southwesterly shear is likely to cause gradual weakening as the

<span-size:10.5pt;font-family:"Courier New";color:black">hurricane approaches the coast.  Despite the forecast decrease in

<span-size:10.5pt;font-family:"Courier New";color:black">the peak winds, Willa is expected to remain a dangerous hurricane

<span-size:10.5pt;font-family:"Courier New";color:black">through landfall, bringing life-threatening storm surge, wind, and

<span-size:10.5pt;font-family:"Courier New";color:black">rainfall hazards to Las Islas Marias and portions of west-central

<span-size:10.5pt;font-family:"Courier New";color:black">and southwestern Mexico.  After landfall, Willa will rapidly weaken

<span-size:10.5pt;font-family:"Courier New";color:black">over the mountains of mainland Mexico, and dissipation is expected

<span-size:10.5pt;font-family:"Courier New";color:black">on Wednesday.  Moisture from the remnants of this system is forecast

<span-size:10.5pt;font-family:"Courier New";color:black">to spread northeastward over northern Mexico and portions of Texas

<span-size:10.5pt;font-family:"Courier New";color:black">and the northern Gulf Coast where a swath of heavy rainfall is

<span-size:10.5pt;font-family:"Courier New";color:black">expected.

<span-size:10.5pt;font-family:"Courier New";color:black"> 

<span-size:10.5pt;font-family:"Courier New";color:black">1. A life-threatening storm surge is expected along the coasts

<span-size:10.5pt;font-family:"Courier New";color:black">of the Isla Marias, and along the coast of southern Sinaloa and

<span-size:10.5pt;font-family:"Courier New";color:black">Nayarit states in west-central and southwestern Mexico near the

<span-size:10.5pt;font-family:"Courier New";color:black">path of Willa.

<span-size:10.5pt;font-family:"Courier New";color:black"> 

<span-size:10.5pt;font-family:"Courier New";color:black">2. Damaging and life-threatening hurricane-force winds are expected

<span-size:10.5pt;font-family:"Courier New";color:black">over the Isla Marias, and within the hurricane warning area along

<span-size:10.5pt;font-family:"Courier New";color:black">the coast of west- central Mexico.  Hurricane-force winds will also

<span-size:10.5pt;font-family:"Courier New";color:black">extend inland across the mountainous areas of west-central Mexico

<span-size:10.5pt;font-family:"Courier New";color:black">as Willa moves inland.

<span-size:10.5pt;font-family:"Courier New";color:black"> 

<span-size:10.5pt;font-family:"Courier New";color:black">3. Heavy rainfall from Willa is likely to produce life-threatening
