  • Rosa Degrades to Category 1 Hurricane Approaches Baja California

In the south, surf generated by the cyclone off Mexico is expected to build overnight, followed by rain on Monday as Rosa's moisture expands northward from Baja California.

Hurricane Rosa was spinning toward the Baja Peninsula on Sunday as a Category 1 storm with sustained winds of 85 miles per hour, the National Hurricane Center said.

This image shows the projected path of Hurricane Rosa on Friday, Sept. 28, 2018.

The storm had maximum sustained winds of 120 mph and was located 625 miles southwest of the southern tip of Baja California as of Friday evening.

Hurricane Rosa is preparing to dump rain on northwest Mexico and the U.S. Southwest, the National Hurricane Center said.




Hurricane Rosa is expected to bring some much-needed rain to the Southland and increase surf and rip currents along the coast this weekend.

More than 10 million people are under flash flood watches at the U.S. -Mexico border along California and Arizona, and north through Utah and Colorado.

No coastal watches or warnings have been issued. Two inches to 4 inches could drop in the Mogollon Rim of Arizona and the rest of the desert Southwest, central Rockies and Great Basin could receive 1 inch to 2 inches. The National Hurricane Center said Baja California could get 3 to 6 inches. Moisture from Hurricane Rosa will lead to the possibility of record rainfall and flash flooding next week.

Cerveny said it's rare for tropical cyclones to hit Arizona and that they can be "drought busters".
