Category 3 Hurricane Adolph in the Eastern Pacific
10:27 AM EDT - 28 May 2001
Tropical storm warnings are up along the southern coast of Mexico, from Acapulco westward to Lazaro. A hurricane watch is also in effect for the same area. The NHC has hinted that these warning/watch areas may move further north. They don't expect landfall, but the hurricane may come close enough to cause problems.
It's still not moving much, mostly crawling northward. In the past few days it has gone from an ill defined depression to a major category 3 system. As of 10AM Monday, it has a windspeed of 125MPH and a pressure of 960 millibars.
Again, our system is not set up to handle Pacific storms, so many of the features that we have for Atlantic storms will not work. Therefore, here are a few spots to get information on Adolph:
