Now Cristobal is a tropical storm with a high jolt with 40 miles square feet of wind. It runs 3 miles per hour southwest. On its current track, talks with South America are expected to continue over the next few days.
The main risk of this storm will continue to be rain. Ten to 20 inches of rain is possible in Tabasco, Veracruz and Campeche in the Mexican state. There may be isolated amounts of more than 2 feet of rain.
Some areas of the Pacific Ocean in southern Mexico received 20 inches of rain during the weekend, and additional leg rain is expected. According to the National Hurricane Center, “rainfall in all these areas could lead to deadly floods and mudslides.”
CNN meteorologist Chad Myers said, “Campe Bay is the warmest part of the Gulf region at this time of year.
In fact, the sea surface temperature in this region is now 3-4 degrees Fahrenheit higher than normal, providing plenty of fuel for storms.
In the long run, storm forecasting becomes somewhat complicated. CNN meteorologist Brandon Miller said, “Long-term forecasts are extremely complex due to the expectation that potential interactions with ground and strong winds will affect Vertex.
“The model forecast demonstrates the existence of one of the possibilities for a second circulation formed in the southern Gulf of southern Mexico that could turn into a tropical storm dolly, ranging from storms to die on rough terrain in South America.”
The situation over the next few days in the Gulf Coast states should be closely monitored and planned, if the storm threatens the coast.
