Tropical Waves Pose Hurricane Threat: Latest Updates on Cyclonic Activity.

On June 28, the State Coordination of Civil Protection (Coeproc) provided an update on the weather conditions for the upcoming Saturday in Quintana Roo. The state authorities are closely monitoring tropical wave No. 6 and another tropical wave located south-southwest of the Cape Verde Islands.

Just the previous night, tropical depression number two had intensified, transforming into tropical storm Beryl, marking the second storm of the Atlantic hurricane season. The United States National Hurricane Center anticipates that Beryl will escalate to hurricane status either overnight on Sunday or early Monday morning. There's also a possibility that tropical storm Beryl could evolve into a hurricane over the weekend.


The first low-pressure area, situated over the Calakmul municipality in Campeche and associated with tropical wave No. 6, has a 40% chance of developing into a cyclone within the next 48 hours and over the next week. This area is roughly 220 km east of Sabancuy, Campeche, and is moving in a west-northwest direction.

The second low-pressure area, linked with a tropical wave over the south-southwest of the Cape Verde Islands, has seen its cyclonic development probability increase to 20% over the next 48 hours and 60% over the next week.


The governor of Quintana Roo has warned of continued heavy and torrential rains accompanied by electrical discharges, which could result in waterlogging and flooding. Additionally, 2 to 4-meter waves, strong winds of 40 to 60 km/h, and fog are expected along the state's coasts. The governor has urged residents to take precautions and stay updated through official media channels.
