Beatriz Diminishes to a Remnant Low Pressure Area

2 Jun 2017, 10:17 am

Tropical Storm Beatriz has degenerated into a remnant low pressure this morning as it continues to move through Central Mexico. With high humidity continuing over the region, there is a continued threat for extremely heavy rainfall that could produce flash flooding and mudslides.

The system made landfall last night as a Tropical Storm near Puerto Angel, Mexico. Sustained winds were near 45 mph with some higher gusts.  Around a foot of rain has fallen near the storm center, especially in the Mexican State of Oaxaca. The storm weakened to a tropical depression early this morning.

With the storm weakening, little movement is anticipated today. This will produce excessive rainfall totals near the low pressure center. Up to 18″ of rain is possible around the system through tonight. The heavy rain will start to diminish this weekend.
