Tropical Storm Cosme Forms in Pacific Southwest

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.

Guatemala Weather | Tropical Depression Formed of Belize

A tropical depression moving from the western Caribbean toward southeastern Mexico has become Tropical Depression Two. The system will unleash torrential rainfall and the potential for flooding and mudslides in the region. There is a chance the system becomes Tropical Storm Barry before reaching mainland Mexico at midweek. Tropical downpours from northern Nicaragua and northern Honduras and Belize to southeastern Mexico can easily produce several inches of rain in a short amount of time. Two-day rainfall, as of Monday morning, in Honduras includes 5.64 inches in La Ceiba and 4.26 inches in Trujillo.

Proximity to land (less than 60 miles) is expected to limit much development before it reaches Belize Monday afternoon. However, plenty of warm water on either side of the peninsula is available to the system and may sustain it somewhat after making landfall.

This enhanced satellite image shows Tropical Depression Two approaching Belize as of Monday midday, June 17, 2013.

The system is forecast return to warm water Tuesday into Wednesday, as it drifts over part of the southwestern Gulf of Mexico. As a result, the potential for development will increase, prior to a second landfall over the Mexico mainland.

The second name on the list of tropical storms in the Atlantic Basin for 2013 is Barry. Beyond Wednesday, most tropical rains should move inland (westward) over Mexico. There is a chance that some of the moisture from the system is funneled into part of south and west Texas late in the week well after the second landfall.

What is the weather like in Lake Atitlan Guatemala June 11th 2013

Our Lake Atitlan Guatemala Meteorologist whose weather reports can be read weekdays http://www.lakeatitlantravelguide.com/ and in Guatemala City, Antigua Guatemala and Lake Atitlan reports on his first hand views of the local weather for Lake Atitlan. “Beel Lesman” is a recognized historian of Lake Atitlan and in taking on the role of Chief Meteorologist has helped predict many storms as they approached the highland of Guatemala. Most notable was Tropical Storm Betty which just turned north before slamming into Mexico.

Beel also had first hand knowledge of Tropical Storm Agatha. Tropical Storm Agatha was a weak but catastrophic tropical cyclone that brought widespread floods to much of Central America, and was the deadliest tropical cyclone in the eastern Pacific since Hurricane Pauline in 1997. The first storm of the 2010 Pacific hurricane season, Agatha originated from the Intertropical Convergence Zone, a region of thunderstorms across the tropics.

Here is Beel’s prediction and weather forecast for Lake Atitlan Guatemala for June 11th 2013

Tuesday, June 11 – High chance of rain and low cloud cover is forecast for Tuesday over Lake Atitlan. There is a high pressure cell moving in off the Pacific coast. The typical result of this is rain and overcast skies. We are climbing the San Pedro Volcano today, so we were hoping for clear visibility and blue skies at least until noon. We will pack our rain gear for the hike, and will most likely need it.

We will summit the 10,400 ft volcano around noon and enjoy a nice picnic lunch. Our climbers are two teen aged travelers, and they hope to climb the challenging west rim of the volcano. Most travelers are happy with the easy east rim summit, but we have a couple of high energy teens who want something more difficult.

More of Guatemala

 

Antigua Guatemala means “Ancient Guatemala” and was the third capital of Guatemala. The first capital of Guatemala was founded on the site of a Kakchikel-Maya city, now called Iximche, on Monday, July 25, 1524—the day of Saint James—and therefore named Ciudad de Santiago de los Caballeros de Goathemalan (City of Saint James of the Knights of Guatemala). Naturally, St. James became the patron saint of the city.

After several Cakchiquel uprisings, the capital was moved to a more suitable site in the Valley of Almolonga (place of water) on November 22, 1527, and kept its original name. This new city was located on the site of present-day San Miguel Escobar,which is a neighborhood in the municipality of Ciudad Vieja.[2] This city was destroyed on September 11, 1541 by a devastating lahar from the Volcán de Agua. As a result, the colonial authorities decided to move the capital once more, this time five miles away to the Panchoy Valley. So, on March 10, 1543 the Spanish conquistadors founded present-day Antigua, and again, it was named Santiago de los Caballeros. For more than 200 years it served as the seat of the military governor of the Spanish colony of Guatemala, a large region that included almost all of present-day Central America and the southernmost State of Mexico: Chiapas. In 1566 King Felipe II of Spain gave it the title of “Muy Noble y Muy Leal” (“Very Noble and Very Loyal”).

On September 29, 1717, an estimated 7.4 magnitude earthquake hit Antigua Guatemala, and destroyed over 3,000 buildings. Much of the city’s architecture was ruined. The damage the earthquake did to the city made authorities consider moving the capital to another city.
