Patricia is forecast to come right over our heads here on the Texas Coastal Bend, too, but only after it probably will have been torn to pieces by crossing over the Mexican mountains. Nevertheless, our forecast this weekend jumps right out there with a 100% chance of heavy rain. While this is good news for us, the people in the Mexican state of Jalisco are in for a terrible beating.
An amazing storm:
The closest contender, at this point, might be Hurricane Camille when it battered the U.S. Gulf Coast in 1969. Regardless, Patricia looks to be more powerful than Hurricane Andrew in 1992, Katrina in 2005 and many others.
