10pm Update on Patricia

Earlier today, a weather satellite took this image of the eye of Hurricane Patricia. It illustrates what meteorologists call "the stadium effect." In other words, if you were in a boat, it would look like you were standing in the middle of a major league football field.

Here is the 10pm position of Patricia. The storm still has 135 mph winds.
At 7am Saturday, the storm will be of tropical storm strength. It is expected to be a tropical depression tomorrow evening. The red on the coast is the continuing hurricane warning because of the winds on the backside of the hurricane.
