Tropical Storm Simon Expected to Become Hurricane Today

Tropical Storm Simon formed off the coast of the Mexican Pacific, expected to become a hurricane by Saturday, creates the potential for intense torrential rains and high waves along the West Coast of Mexico, the National Weather Service warns.

The agency reports that at 3:00 AM, Simon was 420 kilometers (260 miles) southwest of Puerto Vallarta, in the state of Jalisco.

The weather system is moving at 7 km/h with sustained winds of 85 km/h and gusting at 100 km/h.

Tropical Storm Simon could cause torrential rains of 150 mm – 200 mm(6 – 8 inches) in the states of Nayarit, Jalisco, and Colima.

Authorities recommend using caution when navigating the waters in the warning area. Small boat navigation has been suspended in several areas along the cost.

Authorities are asking people to exercise caution as the grounds are still saturated from rains during the week, to the potential for flooding and slides remain high with any large amounts of rain.

As always be alert and listen to local authorities and warnings for your specific area.
