He/She/It - Hurricane Alex Headed For Landfall

First TD, first TS, and first Hurricane of the season - Alex - is going to make landfall in about 24 hrs. She (I'll go w/female) is starting to look impressive on the latest IR satellite, but, not much more time to strengthen before landfall around/just south of the US Mexico border.Check links for the latest NOAA forecast. The rapid increase in circular banding and cooling cloud tops are impressive. Would not be surprised to see Alex come ashore as a solid Category 2.
