Probable Heavy Rain Tonight In Eastern Guatemala

The system discussed in the previous post, circled in yellow below, continues to approach. As predicted, the wave itself is crossing onto land right about now (midday, Monday). I continue to expect the moisture associated with this wave to start affecting us tonight, probably early this evening, with increased rain, possibly a lot of rain, and some thunderstorms. The effects will continue for about 24 hours.

In addition, we now have something else to keep an eye on. That wave and active airmass that came off Cape Verde island two days ago has developed into tropical depression 4. It will likely turn right before making trouble for us in eastern Guatemala.
