Hurricane “Felicia” fell to category 3 while continuing to move away from the coast of Baja California Sur in the Pacific Ocean, so it does not represent a risk for the country, the National Meteorological Service (SMN) reported this Sunday.

In a statement, the agency pointed out that “Felicia” is located 2,140 kilometers to the “west-southwest” of Cabo San Lucas, in Baja California Sur.

The cyclone is moving at 19 kilometers per hour (km / h) towards the west-southwest and registers sustained winds of 195 km / h and gusts of 240 km / h. The SMN explained that due to its remoteness, the meteorological phenomenon “does not represent a danger to Mexican territory.”

On the other hand, tropical storm “Guillermo” over the Pacific Ocean is located southwest of the Baja California peninsula. “Its circulation reinforces the probability of rains in Baja California Sur and the west of the country.”

“Guillermo” maintains sustained winds of 95 km / h and gusts of 110 km / h. At the moment, it is located 620 km southwest of Cabo San Lucas.

The agency also reported on Tropical Wave Number 12, which will run through the southeast, south and east of the national territory; a second low pressure channel extended over the Yucatan Peninsula, and the approach of a new tropical wave.

These natural phenomena will cause heavy rains “accompanied by electric shocks” and with possible hail in Chiapas, Chihuahua, Mexico City, Durango, State of Mexico, Guerrero, Jalisco, Michoacán, Morelos, Nayarit, Oaxaca, Puebla, Sinaloa, Sonora and Veracruz.

The 2021 rainy and tropical cyclone season in the Pacific officially began on May 15 and is expected to end next November. So far, cyclones “Andrés”, “Blanca”, “Carlos”, “Dolores”, “Enrique” and “Felicia” have formed in the Pacific.

Dolores made landfall on June 19 and had a special impact on the states of Colima and Michoacán. While up to five cyclones were registered in the Atlantic: “Ana”, “Bill”, “Claudette”, “Danny” and “Elsa”.

The National Water Commission (Conagua), predicted last May the formation of between 14 and 20 named systems in the Pacific Ocean for this season, while for the Atlantic it predicted 15 to 19 meteorological phenomena.
