Tropical Storm Cosme Forms in Pacific Southwest. The tropics are heating up in the Pacific, about 500 miles south of Manzanillo, Mexico with the formation of tropical storm Cosme. The storm’s maximum sustained winds early Monday are near 40 mph (65 kph). The U.S. National Hurricane Center in Miami says some strengthening is expected and the storm could become a hurricane by Tuesday night or Wednesday.
Tropical storm Cosme is moving northwest at about 10 mph (17kph) and is expected to stay away from the country’s coast. However, strong winds and extremely rough and dangerous surf will put shipping interests at risk. Residents, beachgoers, swimmers, surfers and vacationers are urged to stay out of the water as onshore winds and ocean swells will continue the threat for high waves, high tides, and deadly rip currents. In particular, in Manzanillo, waves heights could approach 15 feet Tuesday and Wednesday.
Mexico will see heavy rain in its southern coast, from Manzanillo to Acapulco to Puerto Vallarta. Heavy rains and flooding are a concern.
