  • Tropical depression three forms near the coast of Mexico

The third eastern Pacific tropical system of the year has formed, threatening southern Mexico with gusty winds and flooding rainfall into the middle of the week.

The storm, now back to tropical depression status, was centered about 45 miles (70 kilometers) north-northeast of Puerto Angel and it was moving west-northwest at 6 mph (9 kph), according to the U.S. National Hurricane Center.

The tropical cyclone will move inland along the coast of southern Mexico by early Tuesday.

"There will be winds gusting to around 50 miles per hour Monday night as landfall occurs, along with a coastal storm surge of a foot or two", said Strait.

The U.S. won't see any direct impacts from this storm.

According to the leak , it will have a 6.4-inch Infinity display , making it the largest Note and bigger than the Galaxy S8 Plus . The device was unveiled back in February at MWC, and the Korean company is now taking pre-orders for it in the UK.

A tropical storm warning was in effect for Mexico's Pacific coast between Punta Maldonado and Boca de Pijijiapan.

Regardless of the system's strength, heavy rain is the main threat to Mexico and southern Guatemala.

Saturday evening through Monday evening, 12.72 inches (323.0 mm) of rain fell in Salina Cruz.

These rainfall totals could lead to life-threatening flash floods and mudslides in some areas into midweek.

Five to 10 inches of rainfall are forecast across the Mexican states of Chiapas, Oaxaca and Guerrero, with isolated amounts up to 20 inches possible. Travis says this low will tug a large area of deep tropical moisture into the Gulf early next week, and our best computer models continue to suggest low pressure may spin up in this moisture over the western Gulf.
