I was really surprised there wasn't a topic for Hurricane Jova, foretasted to make landfall along the Western Coast of Mexico as a Major Hurricane.



Jova has a well developed eye, and with mostly favorable conditions, there's no reason the system couldn't attain the expected 135 MPH.

Jova is now up to 125 mph/957 mb: Source

Jova appears to be a classic major hurricane, and with its well organized appearance and favorable environment, I see no reason why it shouldn't become a category 4. On another note, Jova would then be the 5th Category 4 hurricane of the East Pacific hurricane season. I'll check through the history records later, but I doubt that there were this many Cat4 hurricanes in most of the recent hurricane seasons.
