Tropical Storm Beatriz Discussion Number 7
NWS National Hurricane Center Miami FL EP022017
1000 PM CDT Thu Jun 01 2017
Recent microwave imagery and surface observations from southern
Mexico indicate that the center of Beatriz made landfall just west
of Puerto Angel around 0000 UTC. A ship just east of the center
reported 40 kt winds around 2100 UTC, but since the circulation
has crossed the coast, it is assumed some weakening has occurred
and the initial intensity is set at 35 kt.
Beatriz is forecast to move north-northeastward in southwesterly
flow to the east of a mid- to upper-level trough over northwestern
Mexico. This should take the cyclone farther inland and rapid
weakening is expected tonight. The low-level circulation should
dissipate over the high terrain over southeastern Mexico on Friday.
The primary concern with Beatriz and its remnants remains heavy
rainfall that is expected to continue over portions of southeastern
Mexico during the next day or two. These rains will likely produce
flash flooding and mudslides.
