At 800 PM PDT (0300 UTC), the center of Hurricane Norman was located
near latitude 17.3 North, longitude 119.6 West. Norman is moving

forward speed is expected over the weekend.

Maximum sustained winds remain near 150 mph (240 km/h) with higher
gusts.  Norman is a category 4 hurricane on the Saffir-Simpson
Hurricane Wind Scale.  Gradual weakening is anticipated, however,
Norman is expected to remain a very powerful hurricane during the
next few days.

Hurricane-force winds extend outward up to 25 miles (35 km) from the
center and tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 80 miles
(130 km).
