Jova possibly will affect the west coast of Mexico near Cabo Corrientes early next week. I will start updates if it looks like significant affects will be felt on the coast coastal areas.

I will start updates later today or tomorrow morning on Jova. Jova will likely impact the western coast of Mexico roughly near Manzanillo overnight Monday night. Residents and tourists should follow the progress of Jova and take appropriate action.
