    Hurricane Jova has strengthened to a Category 3 storm as of Monday, and it's possible that Jova could reach Category 4 on Tuesday before it makes landfall. The hurricane is heading toward the Barra de Navidad, which is south of Puerto Vallarta, and almost all the guests have been evacuated from the area's hotels. The Mexican government has declared a hurricane warning for a 100-mile stretch of the Gulf Coast between Puerto Vallarta and Manzanilla.

    For more information about the storm or its path, check out the website for the National Hurricane Center.

    My weatherman mentioned that Hurricane Jova will likely hit land tonight. It is still on track to hit Puerto Vallarta and might be a category 2 or 3 storm when it makes landfall.

    Update: Hurricane Jova

    As expected Hurricane Jova made landfall on Mexico's Pacific coast late yesterday but it did so as a Category 2 storm. There were no evacuations in Puerto Vallarta but south of the beach resort, people were brought to safety from the towns of Zihuatlan and Melaque near Barra de Navidad.

    Earlier on Tuesday, workers scrambled to fill and stack sandbags to protect the professional beach volleyball courts on Puerto Vallarta's coast, where events from the Panamerican Games are scheduled to be staged later this week.
