TS Trudy lands near Acapulco- minimal rain for us
Invest 92E strengthened to tropical storm status last night and this morning has gone ashore 75 miles SE of Acapulco. It will drift slowly while weakening, but it will still generate heavy rains for southern Guerrero and Oaxaca states. I hope they are ready down there...
For us, the blobs it was throwing our way just couldn't make it this far. So our chance of rain is now minimal; just the usual slight chance of PM thunderstorms.
Conagua weather radar from Acapulco showing heavy rain inland:
Excerpt from NHC Public Advisory, warning of very heavy rains and flash flooding down there:
"...RAINFALL...TRUDY IS EXPECTED TO PRODUCE RAINFALL OF 6 TO 12 INCHES WITH ISOLATED AMOUNTS NEAR 20 INCHES DURING THE NEXT FEW DAYS IN THE STATES OF GUERRERO AND OAXACA IN SOUTHERN MEXICO. THESE RAINS ARE EXPECTED TO PRODUCE LIFE-THREATENING FLASH FLOODS AND MUDSLIDES...ESPECIALLY IN AREAS OF MOUNTAINOUS TERRAIN..."
I don't see any more storms developing at least for the next week.
