Tropical Depression 3 to bring heavy rain to parts of Mexico

WSAV Hurricane Central

At 11pm Monday, the center of Tropical Depression Three is about 95 miles west/southwest of Campeche, Mexico. The storm is expected to drop as much as 10-15 inches of rain to parts of Mexico.

The storm is moving toward the west at around 7 mph. Eventually, the storm will eventually turn west/southwestward or southward at a slower speed on Tuesday. Then it will meander for a bit. Then later in the week, it could start to head back out to sea.

Maximum sustained winds are near 30mph with higher gusts. Gradual strengthening is expected. Once sustained winds reach 39mph, it will become a tropical storm and be named Cristobal. This could happen as early as later tonight or tomorrow.

The estimated minimum central pressure is 1005 mb (29.68 inches).

For now, this storm is NO threat to the Coastal Empire and Lowcountry.
