Re: Hurricane Lane - Now forecast to enter the Gulf of California -

Lane looks to be in a rapid intensification phase - winds are 100mph as of the 8:00 intermediate advisory, up 30 mph from just 6 hours ago. The right eyewall is pounding the Islas Marias, a tiny group of islands off the west coast. Fortunately from what I've been able to Google, the islands appear to be basically uninhabited except for a federal prison.

NHC indicated Lane could reach cat 3 sometime Saturday - from the way he's deepening this evening, that might be conservative.
