Tropical depression 20E is just getting wound up.
Should be a hurricane in the Pacific by Thursday, and will return to a storm as it makes landfall.
If the NHC is right, it will track towards us late Friday, early Saturday.
Could be wet this weekend. Beer Beer

With a level 2 hurricane in the middle of Jalisco ..... I really doubt.  They always break up on the coast.  Rain for sure

Although Patricia will lose hurricane status once she makes landfall, we could possibly get gale-force winds in excess of 35mph here at Lake Chapala. So you may want to bring the patio furniture inside before she hits and rethink your weekend travel plans. You may also want to stock up on flashlights, batteries and candles. Here's the link to the U.S. National Hurricane Center website in order to keep yourself informed of the storm's progress.

No downgrade on the NHC site, and the weather underground is predicting rain starting at midnight friday.
The winds may do more damage than the rain. Beer

My original link had a big orange dot right in the middle of Jalisco .... which is almost impossible. A green Tropical Storm is noting to sneeze at unless it is downgraded further

Not looking good. Forecast shows a Cat 3 hurricane in the Pacific on Friday.
It shows a Cat 1 hurricane arriving in our area Saturday.
Hope it tracks further west. Beer

Somehow I doubt a "hurricane" can make it over the mountains and reach this far inland. High winds yes, hurricane level winds, doubtful.

I guess we will find out..... Beer

Ajijic weather today said "Current models show Patricia passing west of Guadalajara at 1 a.m. Sat. with winds of 90 mph/145 km."
Coming from huricane country, stock up and get gasoline.

Forecast to come ashore as a Cat 4 now.
I spoke with a woman an hour ago who said she remembers a hurricane hitting Chapala when she was young.
I am bringing my patio furniture indoors just in case. Beer

Hmmm... Starting to think we should do some prep tomorrow and pick up a few supplies, in case the power goes out.

Even with the cat one status not hitting lakeside don't underestimate tropical storm status. It still going to be real rainy and windy here at some point. Feel sorry for the coast we got a break when the storm turned slightly west they are going to get the shit kicked out of them. Be safe folks.

Stay safe Sparks!!!

With the electrical grid around here being fragile at best, better be prepared for possible long-term power outages if we do get some high winds.

The latest information now predicts it passing northwest of us with "Tropical Storm" status. We may just get the fringes.
