Strong Storms Expected in Southwestern Mexico as Max Wanes, Norma Approaches

MEXICO CITY – Strong winds and torrential rains associated with the remnants of Hurricane Max and a slowly approaching of Tropical Storm Norma were expected in southern and western Mexico on Friday, the National Weather Service (SMN) said.

In a bulletin issued at 7 am local time, the SNM forecast temperatures greater than 40 C (104 F) in Baja California, Sinaloa, Sonora, Chihuahua, Coahuila, Nuevo Leon and Tamaulipas and less than 5 C in the mountains of Chihuahua, Durango, Zacatecas, Aguascalientes, Nuevo Leon, San Luis Potosi, Guanajuato, Queretaro, Hidalgo, Puebla, Veracruz, Michoacan, Oaxaca and Mexico.

Wind gusts over 60 km/h (37 mph) and waves of between one and two meters (3.2 to 6.4 feet) were expected in coastal areas of Baja California Sur, Sinaloa, Nayarit and Jalisco, while wind gusts of more than 50 km/h have been forecast for the coasts of Colima and Michoacan.

“The storms and winds will be generated by the remnants of Max, located on the border between Oaxaca and Guerrero; Tropical Storm Norma, which is located over the Pacific Ocean about 465 kilometers (290 miles) south of Cabo San Lucas and moving slowly to the north-northwest; and a trough of low pressure in western Mexico,” the report said.

Norma, which is forecast to become a hurricane on Friday night, is packing maximum sustained winds of 100 kph, the Miami-based National Hurricane Center said in a 1500 GMT bulletin.

“Swells generated by Norma will begin affecting portions of the coast of southwestern Mexico and Baja California Sur this weekend. These swells are likely to cause life-threatening surf and rip-current conditions,” the NHC said.
