    Tropical Depression Ramon will enhance the risk of flooding, mudslides and rough surf across the southern Mexico coast through Thursday.

    Ramon reached tropical storm status on Wednesday morning but quickly weakened to a tropical depression on Wednesday night. Ramon is expected to track west-northwest into the weekend.

    Downpours will occur around and near the coast from Oaxaca westward into Michoacan.

    While not all areas will have heavy rainfall, areas that do have downpours will be at a heightened risk for flash flooding and travel disruption.

    Rainfall amounts of 50-100 mm (2-4 inches) are expected with locally higher amounts possible.

    The hardest-hit areas could experience mudslides and significant travel delays.

    The threat area includes Acapulco, Salina Cruz and Zihuatanejo.

    “Ramon will also bring rough seas and surf to the southern coast of Mexico the next several days,” added AccuWeather Meteorologist Courtney Spamer.

    A continued track toward the west-northwest will keep Ramon from making landfall and take it farther out to sea by Friday and this weekend.

    Another tropical low will spin off the coast of central Mexico this weekend into early next week, bringing the risk for flooding downpours from Nicaragua to Guatemala and southeastern Mexico.
