Hurricane Rosa off Mexico could bring rip currents to San Diego

Hurricane Rosa upgraded to category 4 - CBS News 8 - San Diego, CA News Station

Areas covered by watches due to what the weather service's Las Vegas office calls "abundant tropical moisture from Hurricane Rosa" include southern Nevada, southeastern California, southwestern and central Utah and the western two-thirds of Arizona.

Rosa was creeping northeast Sunday morning as a Category 1 hurricane, with sustained winds of 75 miles per hour, according to the National Hurricane Center.

Some rain has returned to parts of drought-withered and fire-scarred California, and forecasters say even more is expected next week from remnants of Hurricane Rosa and an approaching Pacific storm.

Swells generated by the hurricane were also expected to produce life-threatening surf and rip currents off Southern California. A flash flood watch is already in place for a large portion of the Colorado Rockies, with the National Weather Service saying widespread rain is possible in the northwestern and southwestern San Juan Mountains, the Uncompahgre Plateau and Dallas Divide.

"This storm still has a punch, it's still unsafe", said David Roth, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service's Weather Prediction Center in College Park, Maryland. The North Rim could see up to 6 inches.

Sergio had winds of 65 mph (100 kph) Sunday afternoon and was centered about 550 miles (885 kilometers) south-southwest of Manzanillo, Mexico.

A tropical storm warning was in effect for the Pacific coast of the Baja California peninsula from Punta Abreojos to Cabo San Quintin.
