Willa is forecast to produce “life-threatening storm surge, wind, and rainfall” over areas of southwestern and west-central Mexico, meteorologists said.
A hurricane watch was in effect for a stretch of shore between San Blas and Mazatlan, while a tropical storm warning was posted for the area between Playa Perula to San Blas.

, now a major hurricane in the eastern Pacific could lead to more heavy rain across Texas by the middle of this week. The associated moisture will then interact with a stationary front and possibly spawn a nor'easter off/near the Mid-Atlantic coast by next weekend.

The storm could produce dangerous storm surge while dumping 5 to 10 inches of rain across parts of western Jalisco, western Nayarit and southern Sinaloa states, the NHC said.
Meanwhile, a weakening Tropical Storm Vicente appeared to be a less potent threat farther south. Forecasters said it was expected to weaken into a tropical depression overnight while remaining just offshore or near Mexico’s southern Pacific coast through Tuesday morning.
