MEXICO CITY – Tropical Storm Tara could bring heavy rains to the states of Colima and Jalisco as it nears Mexico’s Pacific coast, the National Meteorological System (SMN) said Tuesday.
At 7:00 am, the storm was 40 kilometers (26 miles) south-southwest of Manzanillo, Colima.
Tara was moving to the north-northwest at a speed of 2 km/h (1.2 mph) with maximum sustained winds of 95 km/h (59 mph) and gusts of up to 110 km/h, the SMN said.
A tropical storm warning was issued for the Jalisco coast from Manzanillo to Cabo Corrientes.
Tara is expected to move parallel to the coast before making a turn to the west on Wednesday, the SMH said.
