On October 17, the National Meteorological Service (SMN) issued a midday report indicating that a low pressure zone in the Pacific Ocean has a 100% probability of developing into a tropical cyclone within the next few hours.

If this occurs, the storm will be named “Norma” and will be the 14th hurricane of the season. The current location of the low pressure zone is approximately 680 kilometers (km) south-southwest of Punta San Telmo, Michoacán and 755 km south-southwest of Playa Pérula, Jalisco, with a slow west-northwest displacement.

As a result, heavy rains are expected in Colima, Guerrero, southern Jalisco, and Michoacán, with very heavy rains in Chiapas and heavy rains in Oaxaca, Tabasco, and Veracruz. Additionally, rain showers are expected in Campeche, Chihuahua, Nayarit, Puebla, Sinaloa, and Sonora, with isolated rains in Baja California, Baja California Sur, Durango, Mexico State, Mexico City, Quintana Roo, and Yucatán.
