Adrian Downgraded to Depression, Dumps Rain on Southern Mexico

MEXICO CITY – Adrian, the first tropical storm of the 2017 Pacific hurricane season, weakened to a tropical depression in the past few hours and is dumping heavy rains on the southern states of Chiapas and Oaxaca, the Mexican weather service said Thursday.

The tropical depression is 520 kilometers (323 miles) south of Boca de Pijijiapan, Chiapas, and 615 kilometers (382 miles) south-southeast of Salina Cruz, Oaxaca, at 0900 GMT.

The storm is moving northwest at 11 kph (6.8 mph) and is expected to bring torrential rains to Chiapas and Oaxaca.

The eastern states of Veracruz and Tabasco will also be affected by rains from the storm, the weather service said.

The storm has sustained winds of 45 kph (28 mph), with gusts of up to 65 kph (40 mph), and is expected to continue heading northwest over the next few days.

Mexico’s Pacific hurricane season officially starts on May 15 and runs until Nov. 30.

Adrian formed five days before the start of the season.

A total of 22 cyclones – 11 hurricanes, 10 tropical storms and one depression – formed in the Pacific basin in 2016, making it one of the most active storm seasons in recent years.
