GPM View Hurricane Rosa in the Eastern Pacific

View Fullscreen in STORM Event Viewer

The GMI overflight here shows a clear center of circulation with much of the intense convection on the south side of Hurricane Rosa, a Category 1 storm with winds of 75 knots. It is expected to continue intensifying over the next couple days before it runs into strong shear and cooler waters off the Baja California coast. Forecasts suggest it will make landfall in Northern Baja as a tropical storm, with its primary impacts being heavy rainfall and flash flooding over the Desert Southwest.
