Tracking the tropics:

Hurricane Agatha made landfall Monday afternoon just west of Puerto Angel, Mexico, as a category 2 hurricane with maximum sustained winds of 105 mph. This is the strongest hurricane to make landfall in May along the Pacific coast of Mexico since records began in 1949.

Agatha will cross over Mexico with heavy rainfall expected. From there, the area of low pressure will move into the Bay of Campeche. There is a 40% chance in the next five days the low becomes a tropical system. If it does reform, it would change names to Alex because it is going from the eastern Pacific to the Gulf of Mexico. These regions have their own list of names. While it does not appear to be a threat to Texas, we’ll monitor.

10-day Forecast:

Our next small chance of rain is Tuesday and this chance stays with us through Friday. June 1st is Wednesday, the start of hurricane season. Right on cue, we will be watching the leftovers of Hurricane Agatha off the coast of Mexico try to move into the southern Gulf. It is going to be a busy season. Here is Frank’s take on this upcoming hurricane season.

It's feeling like summer this week! (Copyright 2022 by KPRC Click2Houston - All rights reserved.)
