On Saturday, newly developed Tropical Storm Lester could make landfall on the coast of Guerrero, it will generate intense rains in Guerrero, Michoacán, Colima, and Oaxaca; as well as strong winds and high waves on the coast. It is expected that the circulation of the system will cause humidity to be dragged towards the center and west of the country.

During Saturday and Sunday, the second zone of instability with a high probability of cyclonic development will be located southwest of the coast of Jalisco, will continue to intensify, and could evolve into a tropical cyclone, and it is expected to move parallel to the coast of Jalisco, heading towards the south of the Baja California Peninsula on Monday. These conditions will lead to very heavy rains at intense points, strong winds, and high waves in Michoacán, Colima, Jalisco, Nayarit, Sinaloa, and Baja California Sur. If development continues, the storm will take on the name of Tropical Storm Madeline.

During the next 72 hours, low-pressure channels over the Sierra Madre Occidental, the center, northeast, east, and southeast of the country, the monsoon trough on the coast of the Mexican South Pacific, and the tropical wave (Num. 27) will cross the east, center, and south of the national territory, coupled with the entry of moisture from the Pacific Ocean, Gulf of Mexico and the Caribbean Sea and unstable upper air will produce heavy to very heavy rains in the northeast, west, east, center, south, and southeast of Mexico.
