Dora expected to become a major hurricane by tomorrow should remain offshore of southwestern Mexico. At 1500 UTC the center of Hurricane Dora was located near latitude 14.9 north longitude 103.0 west. Dora is moving toward the west-northwest near 18 mph...30 km/h.  A turn toward the northwest and a gradual decrease in forward are expected over the next 48 hours.  On the forecast track the center of Dora is expected to move nearly parallel to the coast of southwestern Mexico over the next couple of days.
