Pacific storms intensify
A few miles to the southeast, Darby has grown to hurricane status with 80 MPH sustained winds and gusts up to 95 MPH. For the next 5 days, Hurricane Darby will remain a threat only to shipping interests but after that there is still indications that Darby may turn towards the Mexican coast. This turn to the northeast may be accompanied by a weakening of the system back to a tropical storm but it is still too early to predict this accurately.
