Hurricane Vance’s maximum sustained winds Tuesday morning were near 100 mph. This makes it a Category 2 hurricane.
The U.S. National Hurricane Center says Vance will continue to weaken through the day.
The hurricane is centered about 380 miles southwest of Matzalan, Mexico, and is moving to the north-northeast at 12 mph.
The government of Mexico issued a tropical storm watch for portions of its Pacific coastline on Monday night, the Weather Channel reported.
The hurricane center says swells generated by Vance are expected to begin affecting parts of Mexico’s southwestern coast and Baja California today. Those swells are likely to cause life-threatening surf and rip current conditions.
Heavy rain of 4-8 inches from Vance is likely to produce life-threatening flash floods and mudslides.
Vance’s heavy rain may get drawn across northern Mexico and all the way into Texas by midweek as a cold front pushes through the region, according to AccuWeather.
Vance is the 20th named tropical storm or hurricane of the 2014 eastern Pacific hurricane season. An average season sees 15 named storms or hurricanes.
The last time 20 or more named storms formed in the Pacific basin was 1992, when 24 storms formed, according to the Weather Channel.
