    Just checked the latest models. Expected to increase to cat 3 or 4 strength before hitting mainland mexico Friday night. Puerta Vallarta looks to be in the bulls eye right now.

    Stay safe

    Patricia already a cat 4. Looks to be a CAT 5 around landfall. Could be devasting.
    Every one in the zone should take all immediate action for safety. This may end up worse than the Cabo hurricane last year.

    Stay safe amigos... Puta madre... Pinche Patricia .. We had a group of 9 of us heading down there... Planned trip for 6 months.. Everyone got baby sitters for kids... I called Lora this morning he said "big storm coming, hopefully can get out Sunday"... Planned to see him Friday night.. Then our condo contact emailed me suggesting we cancel.. Then Lora contacted me to say the same... This has never happened before..went from storm to major hurricane in less than 24 hours... Wtf? And getting worse by the second... Thoughts are with out boys down there... Lora, all the Danny's, Manny, etc etc etc... You guys stay safe and get those boats into safety... Praying it to spare you all!!

    Every trip I plan ends up being around a hurricane.. I was in cabo for hurricane Marty... In PV when Katrina hit New Orleans.. Now this...

    We booked a house in la jolla instead.. Cancelled all plans.. I need to fish.

    She is now the most powerful Hurricane ever recorded in the western hemisphere. Prayers to the people in harms way. Not many structures can withstand that type of wind.

    climate scientists LOVE to look down on WE peons and tell US how wrong we are and how perfect they are.
    That said, winds are reported to have fizzled to 200 knots overnight.

    PV is going to have catastrophic damage.
    There is no way around it. 200 mph winds pressure under 26.00- is strongest storm ever. And it is expected to make landfall just south of PV -which is the only saving grace. it will be in the "weaker" quadrant.

    Expect the PV airport to be closed for a month .

    We just left PV. Sure glad I don't have a boat there. Sure they get some lee from the mountains south of the bay. I can not get in touch with friend there.

    Forecasted winds in PV will be nowhere near 200 and not as much rain either but hurricane of course can still change a little direction...manzanilla looks screwed... Hope everyone stays safe..I was also in hurricane Irene in NYC... These damn things follow me wherever I go.. Well except to Cali ;)

    Despite the storm probably making landfall to the south of PV , there will be a big tidal surge into Banderas bay once the eye goes past to the south and the wind swings into the WNW driving water into the bay and lee shore.

    The Airport is pretty much on the bay.

    here is the WU page for manzinillo airport and PV airport/surrounding weather conditions and too the right you have web cams on the map that are updated every 20 or so minutes.
