Hurricane Blas Now At Category 3

From NHC this afternoon:

Blas has the classic appearance of a powerful hurricane in satellite
imagery this afternoon, with a 20 n mi wide eye embedded in a
symmetric central dense overcast which in turn is almost surrounded
by outer convective bands.  Satellite intensity estimates are 115
kt from SAB and 102 kt from TAFB, and a recent CIMSS Advanced
Dvorak Technique estimate is 110 kt.  Based on these data, the
initial intensity is increased to 110 kt, making Blas the first
major hurricane of the eastern Pacific season.
