Carlos to slam Mexico

Posted by on Sunday, June 14, 2015

The government of Mexico has issued a Hurricane Warning for Lazaro Cardenas to Tecpan de Galeana. A Hurricane Watch is in effect for West of Lazaro Cardenas to Manzanillo and Punta San Telmo to Manzanillo. A Tropical Storm Warning is in effect for East of Tecpan de Galeana to Punta Maldonado.

Interests elsewhere along the southwest coast of Mexico should monitor the progress of Carlos.

On the forecast track, the center of Carlos is expected to approach the coast of southwestern Mexico late Monday.

Carlos is expected to produce 150-250 mm of rain across the southwestern coast of Mexico through Tuesday with maximum totals of 400 mm possible.  The states of Mexico affected include Oaxaca, Guerrero, Michoacan, Colima, and Jalisco. These rains could cause life-threatening flash floods and mudslides, especially in areas of higher terrain.
Swells associated with Carlos will affect the coasts of southern and southwestern Mexico during the next few days.  These swells could cause life-threatening surf and rip currents.
