Discussion under AWIPS header MIATCDEP2, WMO header WTPZ42 KNHC,
and on the web at
WIND: Hurricane and tropical storm conditions will continue over
portions of the Hurricane and Tropical Storm Warning areas for the
next few hours.
STORM SURGE: A storm surge is producing significant coastal
flooding in areas of onshore winds in southern Mexico. Near the
coast, the surge is accompanied by large and destructive waves.
RAINFALL: Rick is expected to produce 5 to 10 inches of rain with
isolated storm total amounts of 20 inches across sections of the
Mexican states of Guerrero and Michoacan through Tuesday. This heavy
rainfall will likely produce flash flooding and mudslides.
SURF: Swells generated by Rick will affect portions of the
southwestern coast of Mexico through early Tuesday. These swells
are likely to cause life-threatening surf and rip current
conditions. Please consult products from your local weather office.
