– At a national civil protection meeting held in Acapulco last week, Roberto Ramírez de la Parra, the director of Mexico’s National Water Commission (Conagua), told attendants that as many as 32 tropical cyclones could affect Mexico this hurricane season, four more than the average recorded in recent years.

The Conagua director went on to say that 18 of the cyclones are forecast for the Eastern Pacific Ocean and 14 for the Atlantic.

Hurricane season officially started in the Eastern Pacific on May 15, 2018. Of the Pacific weather events, eight are expected to be tropical storms, four are predicted to be Category 1 or 2 hurricanes and six are forecast to be hurricanes reaching an intensity of Category 3 or above.

The 2018 Atlantic hurricane season officially begins on June 1, with seven tropical storms, four Category 1 or 2 hurricanes and three Category 3 or higher hurricanes predicted.

Between four and six of the tropical cyclones are expected to have a direct impact on the Mexican coast, Ramírez said.

Though hurricane season usually passes Puerto Vallarta without incident, hurricanes can, and have reached, or affected, the Banderas Bay area. Being prepared for them is always a good idea, and NOW is a good time to develop a natural disaster plan with your family.

Everyone should know where the safest place in the house is, a specific meeting place in the event you get separated, and an out-of-state contact person to help coordinate if needed. You should also decide where you will go if instructed to evacuate, what you will bring with you, and how to secure your home in your absence. All disaster plans should include provisions for your pets as well.

Every household should also have a disaster kit. It doesn’t have to be huge, but at minimum, your kit ought to include:

• A basic First-Aid Kit. You should also keep a list of any prescription medicines handy so you don’t forget to include them in the kit in case you need to refill them.

• Potable water: A gallon per day per person for a few days is a good rule of thumb.

• Food: Non-perishable items that don’t require cooking. Remember things like can openers, paper plates, cups, plastic knives, trash bags, etc…

• Flashlights/Candles: Remember to pack extra batteries and matches!

• Blankets and Extra Clothes: You need extras of everything just in case someone needs something dry to put on or it gets really chilly.

• No-Wash Hand Sanitizer/Baby or Cleansing wipes, and whatever else you think your family might not be able to do without for a few days.

Spend some time keeping your family safe by developing a strategy for safety in the unlikely event of a hurricane. Then you can get back to the business of enjoying your time in Paradise.

well very little rain last night and very low winds.

so for total rain that came in about 2 inches here. So people need to have their properties checked for containers, tires, flower pots and so on drained. The faster this is taken care of the lower the probability of outbreaks of mosquitos.

8:15pm winds picking up to be consistent 10-15 mph gusts to 20mph which we have not had much yet, so we know it is coming.   very little rain but some here and there.

'Luis Alberto Gonzalez, secretary for the municipal government of Los Cabos, said in a telephone interview with CaboMil that at this time (4pm) there are no scheduled suspensions in the electric power service.
Ricardo Gin, superintendent of CFE; the electric power company, said the same thing earlier today in a telephone interview with CaboMil. According to Gin the supply of electric power in Los Cabos should remain continuous. He did point out that the CFE will monitor the progression of TS Bud and especially the wind speed to determine whether any cautionary interruptions in the electric power supply are necessary.'

off and on sprinkles  

nothing pooling.   cloudy  before the heavy rains at noon







noon- some heavy rain coming in horizontally about 10 minutes of it.

2:20pm no further rain just blustery.

I have heard a few kiters are going to head out to the lighthouse and kite, waves should be huge up there, and maybe kite down to here? not sure of itinerary just speculating.. Why, well one can only speculate it is a once in a lifetime chance, winds are straight onshore so should be a nice ride.

as a side note please have your friends or caretakers empty containers that may have water in them. If we get more storms early mitigation of breeding sites is critical.

6am   Bud has given us our first light rains of the year.    Enough 1/4 inch so far to give us some mosquitos ...

it is now downgraded to tropical depression.    But for being so early in the season a bit concerning.

Because of this light rain so early should we receive a lot of rain this has prepped the ground to absorb more vs fast run off.

upgraded to cat 4


Location: West Coast of Mexico
Event: The U.S. Embassy cautions U.S. citizens that Hurricane Aletta is now a Category 4 storm. The eye is located 475 miles southwest of Manzanillo and 210 miles south of Socorro Island, Mexico. Swells generated by Aletta have begun to affect portions of the coast of west-central mainland Mexico and the west coast of Baja California Sur, and will continue to affect those regions throughout the weekend. These swells are likely to cause life-threatening surf and rip current conditions. Aletta is forecast to decay into a tropical storm by late Sunday.

first depression of the Pacific

On this Monday, NHC continues to closely study a trough of low pressure located over the eastern North Pacific Ocean about 500 hundred miles south of the southern coast of Mexico. It continues to produce a large area of disorganized cloudiness and showers. Environmental conditions are conducive for development of this system, and a tropical depression is likely to form within the next two to three days while it moves slowly west-northwestward. The Atlantic basin is quiet. www.hurricanes.gov
