Well, it's still approaching us. It's making a grazing landfall today down in Michoacan as a strong tropical storm, then passing by us inland later tonight as it weakens into a depression: |
So far no rains here in La Manz. Manuel's rains are mostly trailing behind it and staying mostly offshore so far. But I'm sure we'll get some of it later today, tonight and maybe tomorrow. I don't think we'll get a deluge, but it's hard to say exactly what it will do. I don't think I've ever seen a storm pass by us inland like this one is supposed to. You can see the heaviest rains coming up the coast on the TRMM rain-measuring radar satellite:
You can also see that the rains from Manuel have not yet been pulled across Mexico to link up with Hurricane Ingrid which is still offshore in the Gulf of Mexico. I hope this doesn't happen, because that could cause a very dangerous flooding situation over in eastern Mexico.
