Tropical Storm Hilary has strengthened in the Pacific south of Mexico and could soon become a hurricane.

Hilary's maximum sustained winds Thursday are near 70 mph (110 kph). The U.S. National Hurricane Center says Hilary could become a hurricane later in the day and could become a major hurricane by Saturday.

BILL: "...Because I could."

After the third Boiler Maker, Hillary usually goes from being a Tropical Storm to a full out Hurricane.

Are not Pacific hurricanes called “monsoons” or am I confusing this?

If they’re close to the US or Mexico (or Hawaii, for that matter), they’re still ‘hurricanes’.

If they’re in the Pacific, they’re a ‘typhoon’, and near Australia and that area, they’re ‘cyclones’.

I’m really curious whose idea it was to give it this name. The Obamanoids or the clintonoids? Is it good or bad to have a hurricane named after you?

Actually, the HWRF, GFDL have her 'recurving' back towards TX (praying for this!) and the GFS has her recurving further north. This back-door moisture is all TX has left to work with now.

I’m sure the moisture/rain would be welcome in Texas. The recent hurricane Irene gave a lot of rain to PA, NJ, upstate NY and VT—too much, in fact; up in VT the more mountainous areas had torrential rains that had swollen streams and rivers causing a lot of damage and some fatalities—but rain for Texas, if not accompanied by destructive flooding,
would be welcome

I believe that “monsoon” refers to a season.

If you look, Hilary and her friend in front of her are still hugging the coast, not going out to sea like that forecast track depicts. Hope this keeps up!

In fact, it may be her friend in front (which I think is a separate developing cyclone) which is keeping her close to shore.

That's right. The storm itself is called a typhoon.

Thanks for the info. I sure hope it takes a hard right turn and ends up here. Lake Travis is at 40% capacity with no public boat ramps open.

It would be nice if it would bring rain to Texas, but I don’t wish a major hurricane on anyone on the coast so that we can get it.

I want us to get a non-violent long term drizzle. No wind; no flooding. LOL

If it did turn and come our way, it would have to cross a lot of Mexico and be nothing more than a tropical storm by the time it hits.

When I clicked on this thread, I thought it was a political thread.

I didn’t know there was a REAL “Hurricane Hilary”!

WOW! Just got home, in 8 hours she’s now 125mph and the models are sending her here. This is our last shot, man.

It’s beautiful.

Bob Rose in his LCRA column said there’s some chance Hilary might bring us moisture, but ‘everything would have to line up perfectly’ or such.

It’s not like one more disappointment would kill us....

We got about 1/4” yesterday evening. Momma cat was scared by the thunder. The lightening started another fire at the Alamo movie set on Hamilton Pool Rd.
