The storm, weakened from a Category 3 storm to a Category 2, may pour a year’s worth of rain on parts of the Southwest as it advances towards California, according to the National Hurricane Center. The storm is still a major hurricane moving with maximum sustained winds of 110 miles per hour. Moving faster than expected, the storm is now moving at 17 mph. It is expected to be downgraded to tropical storm status by the time it reaches our area.
