“Hurricane Alert: Pacific Cyclone Season Kicks Off – Latest Updates!”

The Pacific cyclone season is set to commence this Wednesday, with the first cyclone, potentially named Aletta, expected to form over the weekend. The National Meteorological Service (SMN) of the National Water Commission (Conagua) reported a low-pressure zone in the Pacific at 5:00 am on Tuesday. This zone has a 30% chance of developing into a cyclone in the coming days, including over the weekend. However, as the low-pressure system is only just starting to move and its chances of becoming a cyclone are still low, authorities have not yet predicted its path, landfall location, or impact.

Alejandra Méndez, General Coordinator of SMN, noted that due to their geographical position relative to the low-pressure zone, the coasts of Chiapas, Oaxaca, and Guerrero will be under special surveillance. There is a potential for cyclone formation in this area within the next week. Méndez also explained that cyclones are studied by quadrants, with the right quadrants being the most dangerous due to the direction of movement.

The rainfall forecast for this season predicts 45 tropical waves in the Atlantic, along with rain in the central region of the country. This rainfall is expected to help replenish water levels in the Cutzamala System. However, restoring water storage in the dams supplying the central region of the country could prove challenging, as the area is currently experiencing its fourth year of drought.
