Hurricane Hilary is expected to bring significant impacts as it barrels toward the Southwest U.S. this weekend, at maximum sustained winds of 145 mph.

Hurricane Hilary started as a tropical storm off the coast of Mexico and grew rapidly into a Category 4 hurricane early Friday. It is expected to continue intensifying through Friday but will weaken as it approaches Southern California on Sunday, according to the U.S. National Hurricane Center.

The hurricane is expected to bring heavy rainfall of 3-6 inches, with isolated amounts of 10 inches, to the Southwestern U.S. through next Wednesday. There is a danger for flash flooding from San Diego to Las Vegas.
