Tropical Depression Three-E continues to move very slowly near the Pacific coast of Mexico where heavy rain could cause life-threatening flash floods and mudslides early this week.
Here's the latest from the National Hurricane Center:
Current Storm Status
Some strengthening is possible and the depression could become Tropical Storm Calvin before it slides inland.
Tropical-storm-force winds – 39 mph or greater – are expected to first reach the coast within portions of the warning area on Monday.
Tropical Storm Watches/Warnings
Five to 10 inches of rainfall are forecast across southern Guatemala and the Mexican states of Chiapas, Oaxaca and Guerrero, with isolated amounts up to 20 inches possible.
These rainfall totals could lead to life-threatening flash floods and mudslides in some areas into midweek.
