It has been 30 years since a hurricane made landfall on the Baja of California during the month of October.
The last was Hurricane Pauline on October 2, 1968.
There have been a handful of tropical storms that made landfall during October.
So this is a pretty rare event.
Norbert should move onshore sometime early Saturday before the noon hour.
Meanwhile a second system is moving northwest, parallel to the Mexican coastline. This is Tropical Storm Odile.
Odile may briefly gain hurricane status in the next 48 hours.
