'''Hurricane Rosa''' is a weakening tropical cyclone that is approaching [[Baja California]]. The seventeenth named storm, tenth hurricane, and seventh major hurricane of the [[2018 Pacific hurricane season]], Rosa originated from a broad area of low pressure that formed a couple hundred miles south of [[Mexico]] on September 22. The disturbance moved slightly north of west for a few days before developing into a tropical depression on September 25. Later that day, the depression strengthened into Tropical Storm Rosa. One day later, Rosa became a hurricane. On September 27, Rosa began a period of rapid intensification, becoming a major hurricane late that day. On September 28, Rosa peaked with [[maximum sustained wind|maximum sustained winds]] of 145 mph (230 km/h) and a [[Barometric pressure|minimum central pressure]] of 940 [[mbar]] (27.76 [[inHg]]). By the next day, Rosa had weakened into a category 2 due to ongoing structural changes and less favorable conditions. Later on September 29, Rosa re-intensified slightly. On September 30, Rosa resumed weakening, falling to category 1 status as its core structure eroded. Early on October 1, Rosa weakened into a tropical storm.
