Heavy rains are forecast in much of Sinaloa


In its 24-hour forecast notice, the National Weather Service forecasts storms in 14 municipalities, checks which ones and takes precautions.

Sinaloa.- After a day with intense temperatures that reached up to 40 degrees Celsius, the weather conditions for Sinaloa will begin to change starting tonight and during the early hours of Tuesday, June 14.

In its nightly warning, the National Meteorological Service highlights that in at least 14 municipalities there will be conditions for moderate to heavy rainfall with accumulations of up to 25 millimeters.

The areas in which the storm will maintain intense cloudiness, as well as rain with storms are: Choix, El Fuerte, Ahome, Guasave, Angostura, Sinaloa, Badiraguato, Mocorito, Salvador Alvarado, Culiacán, San Ignacio, Mazatlán and Elota.

The forecast that was already displayed since last week is about to be confirmed and from now on at least three days with moderate to heavy rains are expected, but towards the weekend they are expected to be more intense as a result of active low pressure and the imminent development of the tropical cyclone “Blas”.

On this occasion, the greatest amount of rain that is expected comes to the mountainous area adjacent to Chihuahua and Durango, but also to the coast in the southern zone, so precautions must be taken against some floods.

However, despite the rains, the high temperatures of up to 41 degrees will be present, this, without counting the thermal sensation that, due to the humidity, will make practically the population feel that they are in a real oven.

In addition, for the following days the conditions are expected to remain, since the pulse of what would be cyclone “Blas” will be present, activating intermittent rains, high humidity, and dangerous conditions for a heat stroke.

* Will cyclone “Blas” reach Sinaloa?

The National Meteorological Service estimates that “Blas”, although initially, it will remain close to the coast, will tend to move away towards deep waters, despite the extensive cloudiness it will mainly reach areas of Guerrero, Colima, Nayarit, and part of Oaxaca, without directly affect Sinaloa.

However, they recommend taking precautions due to high waves, winds of up to 50 kilometers per hour, and conditions for light to moderate rain.
