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.

"I am SICK AND TIRED of people who say that if you disagree somehow you're not being patriotic...we have the right to debate and disagree with ANY administration!
--Select lines from their books: HILLARY: "I couldn't believe it. Gasping for breath...I asked him, why did you lie to me?"
BILL: "...Because I could."
This could end up a fun thread. Come on FREEPER Brothers and Sisters. The jokes tell themselves.
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’.
This just in... winds of 125 MPH in the cankles of this hurricane... evacuations are mandatory...
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?
The old girl is gaining speed and Obummer better watch his back! HAHAHA!
Bill comes out punching his new jobs bill? When does this ever happen?
Think she just might give in and run afterall.
That is NOT good news for Romney.
Wow.....that red Hurricane Hilary graphic is making Huma hot.
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”!
Thanks, I knew my mistake as soon as I hit “post”.
I know, but poor Mexico.
WOW! Just got home, in 8 hours she’s now 125mph and the models are sending her here. This is our last shot, man.
Well, I really hope we get some wet stuff from Hilary.
Look, J, she’s already sending us moisture... thank you Lord...
Goog morning L. It is a cool 59 at my house this morning.
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....
I sure hope we get some rain. I’ve been dragging hoses all over the lawn this morning. I need to a sprinkler system installed.
‘Dja get some? It was pretty crazy in some places.
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.
