This is particularly the case if an eastern Pacific tropical depression or storm forms, in which case torrential rain is possible in parts of El Salvador, Honduras, Nicaragua, Guatemala and southeast Mexico.
Unfortunately, these areas are no strangers to the devastation these storms can be.
In early October 2017, a CAG spawned Hurricane Nate, which made a Category 1 landfall along the Mississippi Gulf Coast.
Some parts of Costa Rica picked up ten to 19 inches of rain.
Flooding and mudslides killed 44 people and destroyed thousands of homes, particularly in Costa Rica and Nicaragua, according to the National Hurricane Center’s final report.
Meanwhile, in the Atlantic, the NHC is reporting a 50 percent chance another cyclone is brewing.
