Hurricane Rosa to Drench Mexico, US Southwest

Hurricane Rosa to Drench Mexico, US Southwest

"Additional weakening is forecast", the Miami-based agency said, with Rosa expected to become a tropical storm by early Monday as it approaches central and northern Baja California, which adjoins the USA state of California.

Hurricane Rosa is heading north from Mexico, bringing widespread heavy rain, flash flooding to southwest US.

Rosa still had maximum sustained winds of 120km/h this morning and it was centred about 515km southwest of Punta Eugenia in Mexico.

The National Weather Service says scattered showers spread over the northwest coast Saturday and some places might see evening thunderstorms.

The center of Rosa was expected to approach Baja California Monday, but is forecast to weaken to a tropical storm by that point. In issuing the flash flood watch, officials also said to be wary of flooding in burn scars from recent wildfires.

The agency can not force interviews in background check investigations, or in criminal investigations. Flake said he, too, didn't like Kavanaugh's mention of the Clintons, saying "it seemed partisan".

The center of the Category 3 storm was 625 miles southwest of the southern tip of Baja California, the NHC said in its 2 p.m. PDT update. 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.

"These swells are likely to cause life-threatening surf and rip current conditions", the NHC said.

"Additional weakening is anticipated over the next few days, and Rosa could become a tropical storm by the end of the weekend", the Miami-based center said.

In Arizona, remnants of tropical cyclones account for about 25 percent of the annual rainfall along the Colorado River, Norman said.
