Howard cyclone brings heavy rains to Sinaloa


The south of Sinaloa has been the first to feel these conditions that arise from cyclone “Howard” that remains active in the Pacific.

Sinaloa.- A day in which there could be rains of between 50 to 75 kilometers per hour, and the unstable weather will be more than present, this August 8 is expected for the state of Sinaloa. 

The effects of cyclone “Howard” and the feeding that it has given to the Mexican monsoon, will keep the entity with unstable conditions for rains in addition to intense winds that could mostly affect the coastal area, as happened this morning in the port of Mazatlan that presented hurricane winds of more than 100 kilometers per hour. 

The National Weather Service forecasts a cloudy to partly cloudy morning that will be even more emphasized in the afternoon when light to heavy rains could occur again. In the last 24 hours, Topolobampo, Ahome has recorded 18.5 millimeters of rainfall that were reported on Sunday afternoon. 

And while the storm centers are observed in: El Fuerte, Sinaloa, Choix, Navolato, Escuinapa, Rosario, Costa Rica, Mazatlán, Elota and Culiacán, areas of Guasave Ahome, Guamúchil and Mocorito, they are seen with more electrical activity and weak rains . 

Sinaloa will experience a reduction in its temperatures that will go from 25 to 34 degrees Celsius that will feel up to 41 degrees this day due to the thermal sensation that comes from the intense humidity; the level of solar radiation will be very high, 10 points, so do not rely on the cloudiness that will be registered since it will not prevent the Sun from burning.
