Enjoy your hurricane, uh, California

So this is a thing that is apparently happening.

Tropical Storm Hilary intensified into a full-blown hurricane over the eastern Pacific Ocean on Thursday, and the National Hurricane Center is warning that as the system moves to the northwest, Baja California and portions of the southwestern United States could see “significant impacts” this weekend and into early next week.

Confidence in the storm’s track is increasing, though the path could still shift in coming days. There’s also uncertainty in the storm’s overall strength and timing.


In the latest forecast, Hilary’s center is projected to approach land in central or northern Baja California as a hurricane on Sunday and weaken to a tropical storm as it moves over northern Baja. The system is predicted to continue to lose strength as it nears California, moving into cooler waters and a cooler air mass. On the current track, the system will push into Southern California near the San Diego-Imperial county line at 6 a.m. Monday.

Cultural slapfight update

Sound of Freedom is beating Mission Impossible domestically.

Jason Aldean is #1 on Billboard.

Barbie is going to easily blast through $1 billion. It's doing Infinity War numbers.

So this was all a good use of time.
