Hurricane Norman became a Category 3 storm today as it moved further away from Mexico’s Pacific coast, weather experts said.

The storm’s sustained winds have increased to 115 mph (185 km/h), according to the US National Hurricane Center (NHC).

At 10am BST (2am PT), the eye of the hurricane was located about 600 miles (965km) south of the southern tip of Baja California.

Robbie Berg, a hurricane specialist at the NHC, warned that the storm is expected to be upgraded to a Category 4 storm by tomorrow.

He said: “Barring any unforeseen structural changes like an eyewall replacement, Norman is likely to continue strengthening for the next 24 hours or so.

“Nearly all of the intensity models depict the current rapid intensification phase persisting for the next 12 hours.”

Meanwhile, Category 1 storm Hurricane Miriam has recorded maximum sustained winds of 75 mph (121 km/h).

The hurricane is located about 1,100 miles (1770km) east-southeast of Hawaii and is not expected to reach land.
