Storms, heavy rains for many on Mexico’s election day

Mexico — Another tropical wave is generating heavy rains across much of Mexico on election day.

The National Meteorological Service says that for July 1, heavy rains with thunderstorms and possible hail is expected for the center, west and south of the country. The rains are due to low-level wind currents and atmospheric instability, as well as the effects of tropical wave 10.

According to their forecast, tropical wave 10 will extend over the western Gulf of Tehuantepec causing cloudy skies and strong storm potential in the southeast of the Republic.

The National Water Commission warned that a current of low-level winds will generate strong winds with gusts of more than 50 kilometers per hour and possible tolvaneras in Chihuahua, Coahuila, Nuevo Leon, Tamaulipas, Campeche, Yucatan and Quintana Roo.

They explained that strong storms are expected with accumulations of 50 to 75 millimeters with hail in Chihuahua, Durango, Nayarit, Jalisco, Guerrero, Oaxaca and Chiapas.

Intervals of showers are expected with strong point storms in Sinaloa, Colima, Michoacán, Guanajuato, Campeche and Quintana Roo with showers in Sonora, Coahuila, Tamaulipas, Zacatecas, Hidalgo, Queretaro, Aguascalientes, State of Mexico, Veracruz and Yucatan.
