With sustained winds of 160 miles per hour and an estimated central pressure of 925 millibars, Hurricane Willa reached "potentially catastrophic" Category 5 intensity Monday morning, the National Hurricane Center said.
This GOES East satellite image provided by NOAA shows Hurricane Willa in the eastern Pacific, on a path toward Mexico's Pacific coast on Monday, Oct. 22, 2018.
Hurricane warnings stretch from San Blas to Mazatlan along Mexico's coast, including Las Islas Marias.
Willa weakened slightly Monday afternoon, but the National Hurricane Center warns it is still expected to be a risky major hurricane when it slams into Mexico's central Pacific coast on Tuesday.
Willa has maximum sustained winds of 160 miles per hour (260 kph), though it's projected to weaken somewhat before hitting land late Tuesday.
Although it is expected to lose strength, it is still likely to be an extremely unsafe hurricane.

One key figure at the head of this effort is Roger Severino , the director of the Office for Civil Rights at HHS. About 1.4 million USA adults identify as transgender, according to a 2016 estimate by the Williams Institute.
"Extremely dangerous" Hurricane Willa's eye is continuing to move northward and is about 110 miles off the southwestern coast of Mexico, said the U.S.
This comes as Hurricane Michael devastated the south-east coast of the USA, leaving communities reeling from the storm "hell".
Meanwhile, Tropical Storm Vicente, with maximum sustained winds of 72km/h, is churning some 590km southeast of Manzanillo.
The hurricane center estimates that total rainfall will range between 5 inches and 15 inches (12.5 cm to 38.1 cm) across stretches of Jalisco, Nayarit and Sinaloa states, home to Mexican white sand beach resorts of Puerto Vallarta and Mazatlan. It was moving north at 8 miles per hour.
The SMN urged residents to "exercise extreme caution" as recent rains have softened the soil in some areas, and Willa's downpours could cause landslides, flooding and damage to roadways.
Elsewhere, Tropical Storm Vicente - with maximum sustained winds of 75km/h - was expected to bring "heavy rainfall and flooding" over Mexico's south and southwest.
There were 10 major hurricanes this year, including Willa, which ties 1992 as the most major hurricanes seen in the northeast Pacific in one year, CNN said. Not only did the storm's intensity rapidly increase, the storm's forecast track altered due to the intensification, bringing a much earlier landfall than was anticipated just a couple of days ago.
