Hurricane Marie Downgraded

Date Published:

A black flag warns of dangerous surf at a resort on the corridor.

Black Flags and Blue Skies: Has Cabo Moved Out of Hurricane Marie's Danger Zone?

Hurricane Marie was downgraded to a Category 4 Hurricane today. Cabo endured brief but torrential rains again this morning, causing some flooding in downtown Cabo and other areas. After the rains faded away, the sun came out and has remained out for hours. Waves are still extremely rough.

The National Hurricane Center (NHC) advises that the maximum sustained winds are 145 mph, meaning Marie is still a powerful Category 4 Hurricane. However, the eye of the storm has begun to cool and further weakening is expected by mid-day tomorrow. Marie was never expected to make landfall on the Baja, but the storm track has been pushed slightly further to the west than was expected thanks to a high pressure ridge to the west of the Baja peninsula. This means the storm is getting farther away from Cabo.

If the NHC forecast holds, Marie will weaken to Category 3 status before tomorrow morning, Category 2 within 36 hours and, Category 1 within 48 hours and will be reduced to a tropical storm within 3 days.

Though it seems unlikely Cabo will see much more of  an effect from Hurricane Marie, the NHC warns that strong swells and dangerous surf will continue for the next few days. Locally, Los Cabos may still receive some torrential rains which can cause dangerous flood conditions, especially near arroyos (dry riverbeds).

The youtube video below, presented by Tribuna Los Cabos, illustrates just how quickly floodwaters can hit.
