Both Hurricane Cristina and Tropical Cyclone Nanauk are expected to strengthen further in the next 24 to 48 hours.
Both Cristina and Nanauk will remain over open water during the next 48 hours with little in the way of impacts on any landmasses.
Cristina is currently producing some rough surf along the west coast of Mexico which will continue into Thursday. Dangerous rip currents will be a major concern for anyone vacationing in the region from Acapulco northward to Puerto Vallarta.
Otherwise, Cristina will continue on a west-to-northwest track in the coming days, and while strengthening is expected, Christina will continue to move farther away from Mexico.
While Cristina is expected to have no long-term impacts on any landmass, Nanauk has already impacted India by advancing the monsoon northward along the west coast. Even though the monsoon has advanced northward in western India, rainfall will be sporadic at times into next week.
Nanauk will continue to strengthen, reaching the equivalent of a hurricane in the Atlantic Ocean, during the next 24 hours.
A general track toward the west-northwest will continue over the next several days over warm waters that will allow some strengthening. Moderate easterly wind shear and intrusion of dry air will, however, limit the overall strength of the cyclone as it approaches Oman later this week.
Nanauk will lash the central coastline of southern Oman with locally heavy rainfall over the weekend, despite weakening. Fortunately the worst of the cyclone's impacts are expected to be over lower populated areas, remaining to the north of Salalah.
