Assist Alert: Potential Tropical Cyclone Approaching Gulf of Mexico


Potential Tropical Cyclone Approaching Gulf of Mexico


A potential tropical cyclone is currently tracking along the coast of the Gulf of Mexico. As of late June 18th, the center of circulation was approximately 510 km (320 miles) southeast of La Pesca, Mexico. The system, expected to intensify, is forecast to make landfall over southeastern Tamaulipas State, early June 20th before dissipating over northwestern San Luis Potosi State later that evening.

Officials have issued coastal warnings and watches around Texas coast from San Luis Pass southward to the mouth of the Rio Grande, and the northeastern coast of Mexico. The system is forecast to produce rainfall totals of 12.5-25 cm (5-10 inches), with localized amounts up to 38 cm (15 inches), across northeast Mexico and South Texas, leading to flash flooding. Landslides are possible in higher terrain areas across northeastern Mexico.
