Hurricane Rosa Expected To Soak Los Angeles, Increase California Surf

Hurricane Rosa upgraded to category 4 - CBS News 8 - San Diego, CA News Station

Hurricane Rosa weakened slightly but was still a major hurricane Friday as as it churned toward the Mexican coast, the National Hurricane Center said.

A southerly ocean swell originating from Hurricane Rosa is expected to arrive later Saturday, officials said.

In Los Angeles County, the highest amount of rainfall is expected to be between half-inch to one inch, from Monday afternoon through early Wednesday morning.

Rosa, with maximum sustained winds of 85 miles per hour (140 kph), dropped down from a Category 2 storm overnight, coming down another notch on the five-step Saffir-Simpson Hurricane Wind Scale.

The rain could lessen as the storm moves toward Arizona, but it could also bring a small dust storm Sunday evening.




Rosa strengthened to category 4 Friday about 1,000 miles (1,609 kilometers) south of San Diego.

It is expected to become a tropical storm by late Sunday as it heads northeast toward the Baja California peninsula.

The forecast for the Prescott area includes more than an inch of rain both Monday and Tuesday, with thunderstorms predicted for both days.

Hurricane Rosa was on a track Sunday to drench northwest Mexico and parts of the U.S. Southwest, prompting tropical storm warnings for the Baja California coast and flash-flood watches for parts of four U.S. states.

That kind of rain would be significant for Yuma, which gets only 3½ inches of rain a year on average, Deemer said.
