(KRON) — Tropical Storm Hilary has now been upgraded to Hurricane Hilary as of Thursday morning, according to the National Weather Service.

The hurricane, located off the west coast of Mexico, will be strengthening over the next few days to a likely Category 4 hurricane, KRON4 Meteorologist John Shrable said.

Hurricane Hilary will move up north towards Baja California where it will make landfall south of the United States-Mexico border.

As it makes its way up, Southern California will likely see heavy rainfall next week.
