Hurricane Jova Strikes Mexican Coast As Category 2 Storm

Very nice Fall weather continues here in Tucson, with cool mornings and very low RH. Spectacular, just past full, moon set in the west this morning. Looks like hot afternoons are returning.

Hurricane Jova came ashore last night as a category 2 hurricane, making lanfall somewhere just south of Cabo Corrientes. This morning the storm is inland (visible image from 1400 UTC this morning is above) over the mountains northeast of Puerto Vallarta (see map below). Jova is weakening rapidly, but will move slowly northward, continuing the threat of floods and landslides.
