Melaque has rain

And this without even a storm off shore. The biggest rain of the season so far was last night and most of the morning. The pool here gained about 2 inches, streets are flooded, the canal has about 3 feet of water in it and the "river mouth" opened for the first time in a long time.

And I was hoping for 3-4 dry days so I could coat my leaking roof. Oh well, you take it as you get it here in "el tiempo de lluvia". With so little rain all last summer ... this indicates to me a very wet year.

Sunset looking East

Usually you look west to see the sunset but I can't look west from this house. I took this from the patio looking east in Melaque

Tropical Storm Beatirz

Beatirz should be hurricane force Monday afternoon and the warning zone is from Manzanillo to Punta Perula which means Melaque is right in the middle. Stormpluse web site tracking shows the center 35 miles offshore from Barra d Navidad. This will be the first prediction in many years aiming a storm directly at this part of the coast. We will see come Tuesday. Personally I hope we just get a good rain

Hurricane Adrian

Hurricane Adrian turned into a level four hurricane and looks close to shore. Right now it's as close as it's going to get, about 350 miles out. So far very little effect except some unusual clouds but we're hoping for a little rain in the next day or two. Surf is large and I expect it to be for a few days.

First possible storm of the season (100%)

500 PM PDT SUN JUN 5 2011

Showers and thunderstorms continue in association with a low pressure area located about 450 miles south of Acapulco Mexico. even though there has not been any recent change in the organization of the shower and thunderstorm activity, satellite images indicate that the circulation has become better defined over the past few hours. Environmental conditions appear favorable for further development, and the low will likely become a tropical depression during the next day or two. There is a high chance, 90 percent, Of this system becoming a tropical cyclone during the next 48 hours as it drifts to the northwest.

This is the Western Pacific map that will change with time.
At least for a few days we can watch this one
