Meteorologists warn of large sea swells for Pacific coast

The natural phenomenon better known as sea bottom, will generate swells of between two to three meters high. Metrologists say the swells will affect waters on the Pacific coast of Mexico from Chiapas to Baja California Sur.

The National Meteorological Service reported that the sea bottom event is caused by an area of atmospheric instability that will cover the center and the south of the territory. It will also cause very strong storms in Chihuahua, Durango and Sinaloa.

Strong storms are also expected in areas of Sonora, Nayarit, Jalisco, Michoacan, Guerrero, Oaxaca, Chiapas, Veracruz, Puebla, Mexico State, Mexico City and Morelos.

Showers are forecast for Baja California Sur, Tamaulipas, San Luis Potosi, Zacatecas, Aguascalientes, Colima, Guanajuato, Queretaro, Hidalgo, Tlaxcala, Tabasco, Campeche, Yucatan and Quintana Roo.

Wind gusts of more than 50 kilometers per hour are likely for Baja California, Baja California Sur, Sonora, Sinaloa, Chihuahua, Coahuila, Nuevo Leon, San Luis Potosi, Tamaulipas and Oaxaca.

Most of the country will continue to see temperature values higher than 45C degrees, especially in regions of Baja Californi, Sonora, Baja California Sur, Sinaloa, Michoacán, Coahuila, Nuevo León and Tamaulipas.
