Damn.. maybe there's something to this whole 'end times' thing after all.

Hecho en Mexico!

Crap. If too much of that heads west, we're fucked.

Way too much backcountry is still not ready for that much rain after the fires last year. This could get REALLY ugly.

Unfortunately for ya'll, rain ain't all you'll get.

However, the original poster ain't readin the pic quite right. It'll be down to <39mph winds by the time it makes landfall in Mexico.

Dude, no shit! Remember the one we got some rain off of a couple years ago. It rained for like 3 days nonstop! I love it!!!!!!

Water is too cold, hurricanes don't like the cold water. I don't expect much from it other than maybe a little bit bigger swell.

it doesn't have to have 100 mph winds, just a bunch of water.

The cold water will do a number on this thing. Look at how fast it is predicted to decline.

Naaaa, just normal weather patterns, we dont have much historical data to work with.

Do you think the Border Patrol will try to stop it and send it back?
Link Posted: 9/16/2004 6:30:19 AM EDT
Woohoo! Water!
Link Posted: 9/16/2004 6:31:01 AM EDT
At best it will be a weak tropical storm.

I need the water here too.

Yes, you guys do. California is getting dry.

Your chart shows it as a tropical depression when it reaches the Gulf of California. A tropical depression might bring some rain and winds less than 39mph.

Yes, in the Western Pacific they're called typhoons. In the Indian Ocean they're cyclones.

That's not too uncommon, but as noted they usually fall apart real quick after heading north. Hurrican Kate '73 or so caused a lot of damage by raining out a railroad east of San Diego, lots of "flash" (although not surprising) flooding in the deserts and mountain.

Most of the Eastern Pacific hurricanes head almost west, the tracks are like those of typhoons and hurricanes but since they don't run over Guam, Phillipines, Floridaa, Cuba, etc, and stay pretty much in a part of the Pacific that even ships don't go through they get no publicity. Baja gets whacked regularly and Acapulco gets belted pretty good every few years.

That's the spirit. I lived in Phoenix for a couple years and the flash floods over by the power plant threre(Can't remember what dry river bed that is) are intense to see come rolling in!

When Nora hit, we over here in Cochise barely got a drop.hinking.gif We need to ge6t some this time.

Er, get some even.

That's how we got our last major flooding in, I think, '91. The remnants of a hurricane dropped a bunch of inches of rain over about four days.

We could use another one.

110 MPH is only Cat 2, not Cat 4...but y'all need the rain, so...
