Hurricane Rosa weakens, Southern California to see rain and high surf

"These swells are likely to cause life-threatening surf and rip current conditions", the NHC said.

Some areas of Los Angeles County could see up to an inch of rain, according to the National Weather Service.

There is increasing confidence that high-grade tropical moisture from Hurricane Rosa may drift into northwest Arizona, southern Nevada and southeast California by Monday morning.

Swells generated by Rosa are forecast to affect parts of the coastlines of southwestern Mexico, the southern Baja California Peninsula, and southern California late this week and over the weekend. The National Hurricane Center said the main hazard is heavy rainfall, both in Mexico and the American Desert Southwest.

Rosa, with maximum sustained winds of 85 miles per hour (140 kph), dropped down from a Category 2 storm overnight, coming down another notch on the five-step Saffir-Simpson Hurricane Wind Scale.

Rosa, which is now a Category 3 storm, weakened slightly off Mexico's Pacific Coast on Friday.

Rosa is expected to make landfall Monday as a tropical storm, then continue moving northeast, soaking the southwestern United States. Forecasters say up to 4 inches could fall in some areas through Wednesday, including Flagstaff, Payson, Prescott and the Grand Canyon's South Rim.

That kind of rain would be significant for Yuma, which gets only 3½ inches of rain a year on average, Deemer said.
