WATCHES AND WARNINGS
--------------------
There are no coastal watches or warnings in effect.


DISCUSSION AND 48-HOUR OUTLOOK
------------------------------
At 900 AM MDT (1500 UTC), the center of Hurricane Dora was located
near latitude 17.3 North, longitude 106.3 West.  Dora is moving
toward the west-northwest near 13 mph (20 km/h), and this general
motion with some decrease in forward speed is expected over the next
48 hours.  On the forecast track, the center of Dora will remain
offshore of the coast of southwestern Mexico today and pass well to
the south of the Baja California peninsula on Tuesday.

Maximum sustained winds have increased to near 85 mph (140 km/h)
with higher gusts.  Some additional strengthening is possible today
before weakening begins by Tuesday morning.

Hurricane-force winds extend outward up to 25 miles (35 km) from the
center and tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 80 miles
(130 km).

The estimated minimum central pressure is 985 mb (29.09 inches).


HAZARDS AFFECTING LAND
----------------------
RAINFALL:  Dora is expected to produce rain accumulations of 1 to 2
inches along coastal sections of the Mexican states of Guerrero and
Michoacan through this evening.

SURF:  Swells generated by Dora are affecting portions of the
coast of southwest Mexico.  These swells are expected to spread
northwestward and begin affecting portions of the coast of the
southern Baja California peninsula on Tuesday.  These swells are
likely to cause life-threatening surf and rip current conditions.
Please consult products from your local weather office.

Hurricane Dora Discussion Number   7
NWS National Hurricane Center Miami FL       EP042017
900 AM MDT Mon Jun 26 2017

Dora has continued to rapidly intensify with a 20-nmi-diameter,
cloud-filled eye now evident in visible satellite imagery.  The
upper-level outflow pattern remains quite impressive and continues
to expand in all quadrants.  Satellite intensity estimates are a
consensus T4.5/77 kt from TAFB and SAB, and T4.7/82 kt from CIMSS
ADT, which supports an initial intensity of 75 kt. Dora could be a
little stronger, but recent infrared imagery indicates that the
inner-core convection has eroded significantly since the 1200 UTC
fixes, so the initial intensity will remain on the low end of
estimates for this advisory.

Dora has been holding on a steady west-northwestward course or
295/11 kt for the past 12 hours. A strong deep-layer subtropical
ridge entrenched to the north of the hurricane is expected to keep
Dora moving in a general west-northwestward motion for the next 3
days or so.  By 72 hours, the cyclone is expected to weaken
significantly and become a more vertically shallow system, steered
westward by the low-level trade wind flow until Dora dissipates by
day 5.  The new NHC track forecast is essentially just an update of
the previous advisory track, and lies a little south of the
consensus track model TVCE out of respect for the more southerly
ECMWF solution.

Dora has about another 12 hours or so to strengthen.  However, the
rapid intensification event that the hurricane has undergone for the
past 30 hours has likely ended.  The aforementioned erosion of the
inner-core convection is possibly due to the entrainment of cooler
and more stable air into the western semicircle now that Dora is
beginning to encroach upon 26-deg C SSTs.  The vertical wind
shear is expected to remain low at less than 5 kt and the favorable
upper-level outflow pattern is forecast to persist for the next few
days as well.  The only hindering factor will be the decreasing
thermodynamics due to the hurricane moving over sub-26C SSTs within
12-18 hours. Steady weakening should begin by 24 h, but the rate of
the weakening trend should be lessened due to proximity to warmer
water just south of the path of Dora and the aforementioned
favorable dynamic conditions. The NHC official intensity forecast is
similar to the previous advisory, and closely follows the consensus
model IVCN.

Although the center of Dora is forecast to remain well offshore, the
outer bands of the cyclone could bring brief locally heavy rainfall
to portions of coastal southwestern Mexico into this evening.
