Yikes looks like an early hurricane threat for Mexico, hopefully this underperforms but I don't really see that happening. Hope everyone there stays safe...

Looks like it's starting to get that shrimp look. Seems RI's probably on the menu this weekend

NHC might have to play a bit of catch-up with this thing. Unfortunately, it seems like the storm is going to live up to some of the more ominous model runs, at least in the short-term. The convective structure of the system and the continuous hot towers around the developing core (+ all the incredibly favorable microwave imagery) seems to point towards TD One-E being perhaps a little stronger than the NHC currently estimates and on the cusp of some RI with a well-structured core and curved banding. Would not be surprised to see this storm be a hurricane by tomorrow evening.

The forecast landfall area has never really had a strong landfall. Also, flooding rains looks like it will be a problem.

High ceiling here. Small, compact low embedded in high moisture, 30+ C SSTs, excellent anticyclone aloft etc etc

Will have to watch carefully if this ends up east of the forecast track... would get more time over the Gulf of Tehuantepec and also put the major city of Salina Cruz at greater risk. Either way this looks like a lot of rain for Oaxaca, Chiapas, and Veracruz and with the mountainous terrain landslides will be a big threat

Satellite intensity estimates from SAB
and TAFB were 30 and 35 kt at 06Z, and based on the increased
organization since that time the initial intensity is increased to
35 kt. Thus, the depression is being upgraded to Tropical Storm
Agatha

BULLETIN
Tropical Storm Agatha Advisory Number 2...Corrected
NWS National Hurricane Center Miami FL EP012022
400 AM CDT Sat May 28 2022

Corrected to add wind hazard section and watch definition

...DEPRESSION BECOMES TROPICAL STORM AGATHA...
...HURRICANE WATCH ISSUED FOR PORTIONS OF THE SOUTHERN COAST OF
MEXICO...


SUMMARY OF 400 AM CDT...0900 UTC...INFORMATION
----------------------------------------------
LOCATION...12.9N 98.1W
ABOUT 220 MI...355 KM SSW OF PUERTO ANGEL MEXICO
MAXIMUM SUSTAINED WINDS...40 MPH...65 KM/H
PRESENT MOVEMENT...W OR 270 DEGREES AT 3 MPH...6 KM/H
MINIMUM CENTRAL PRESSURE...1004 MB...29.65 INCHES


WATCHES AND WARNINGS
--------------------
CHANGES WITH THIS ADVISORY:

The Government of Mexico has issued a Hurricane Watch for the
southern coast of Mexico from Salina Cruz to Punta Maldonado.

SUMMARY OF WATCHES AND WARNINGS IN EFFECT:

A Hurricane Watch is in effect for...
* The southern coast of Mexico from Salina Cruz to Punta Maldonado

A Hurricane Watch means that hurricane conditions are possible
within the watch area. A watch is typically issued 48 hours
before the anticipated first occurrence of tropical-storm-force
winds, conditions that make outside preparations difficult or
dangerous.

Interests elsewhere in southern Mexico should closely monitor the
progress of Agatha. Additional watches and warnings will likely be
required for portions of this area later today.

For storm information specific to your area, please monitor
products issued by your national meteorological service.


DISCUSSION AND OUTLOOK
----------------------
At 400 AM CDT (0900 UTC), the center of Tropical Storm Agatha was
located near latitude 12.9 North, longitude 98.1 West. Agatha is
moving toward the west near 3 mph (6 km/h). A turn toward the
northwest is expected later today, followed by a turn toward the
northeast by Sunday. On the forecast track, the center of Agatha
will approach the southern coast of Mexico on Sunday and move near
or over the southern coast of Mexico on Monday.

Maximum sustained winds have increased to near 40 mph (65 km/h)
with higher gusts. Additional steady to rapid strengthening is
forecast, and Agatha is expected to become a hurricane on Sunday.

Tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 35 miles (55 km)
from the center.

The estimated minimum central pressure is 1004 mb (29.65 inches).


HAZARDS AFFECTING LAND
----------------------
WIND: Hurricane conditions are possible within the hurricane watch
area by Monday, with tropical storm conditions possible by late
Sunday or early Monday.

STORM SURGE: Storm surge could produce coastal flooding near and to
the east of where the center passes the coast in areas of onshore
winds. The surge may be accompanied by large and destructive waves.

RAINFALL: Agatha will produce heavy rains over portions of
southern Mexico by Sunday into Tuesday night. The following rainfall
amounts are currently expected:

Mexican state of Oaxaca: 10 to 16 inches, with isolated maximum
amounts of 20 inches possible. Life-threatening flash flooding and
mudslides may occur.

Mexican states of Chiapas and the eastern portions of Guerrero: 5 to
10 inches, with isolated maximum amounts of 15 inches possible.
Life-threatening flash flooding and mudslides may occur.

Mexican states of Vera Cruz and Tabasco: 2 to 4 inches, with
isolated maximum amounts of 6 inches possible.


NEXT ADVISORY
-------------
Next intermediate advisory at 700 AM CDT.
Next complete advisory at 1000 AM CDT.

Tropical Storm Agatha Discussion Number 2
NWS National Hurricane Center Miami FL EP012022
400 AM CDT Sat May 28 2022

Convection associated with Tropical Depression One-E has become
better organized since the last advisory, with a small central
dense overcast forming and increasing outer banding in the
southeastern semicircle. Satellite intensity estimates from SAB
and TAFB were 30 and 35 kt at 06Z, and based on the increased
organization since that time the initial intensity is increased to
35 kt. Thus, the depression is being upgraded to Tropical Storm
Agatha.

Agatha has slowed its forward speed with the initial motion now
270/3 kt. The combination of a mid- to upper-level trough moving
eastward across northern Mexico and a mid- to upper-level ridge
building east of the storm should cause Agatha to turn
northwestward during the next 12 h or so, followed by recurvature to
the northeast. This track should bring the center of the cyclone
near or over the southern coast of Mexico between the 48-60 h
points. The guidance is in generally good agreement on this
scenario, although there is some spread near landfall due to
differences on how the track guidance models have Agatha
interacting with the Mexican mountains. The new forecast track is
in the center of the guidance envelope and has only minor
adjustments from the previous forecast.

Agatha is expected to be in a moist environment with light wind
shear, significant upper-level divergence, and warm sea surface
temperatures until landfall. This should allow steady to rapid
strengthening, and the SHIPS model rapid intensification index
shows a 70 percent chance of the storm strengthening 55 kt during
the next 48 h. The intensity forecast thus calls for the cyclone
to strengthen to a possibly conservative peak intensity of 85 kt by
60 h, which is at the upper edge of the guidance envelope. Rapid
weakening is expected after landfall as Agatha moves over the
mountains of southern Mexico. There is a possibility that the
remnants of Agatha could emerge over the Bay of Campeche by 120 h,
but at this time it appears unlikely the system will still be a
tropical cyclone.

A Hurricane Watch has been issued for portions of the southern
coast of Mexico. Additional watches and warnings will be required
for this area later today.

Key Messages:

1. There is an increasing risk of tropical-storm-force and
hurricane-force winds along portions of the southern coast of Mexico
in the next two to three days, and a Hurricane Watch is now in
effect for portions of this area. Interests in this area should
closely monitor the progress of this system and updates to the
forecast.

2. Heavy rains associated with Agatha will develop over portions of
southern Mexico by Sunday and continue through Tuesday. This will
pose a threat of potentially life-threatening flash flooding and
mudslides.

One thing that the NHC may not be noticing is that there are 10,000 ft mountains not far inland at the point of landfall. The mountains will almost immediately destroy Agatha. It won't still be a hurricane past the mountains. JTWC is doing the same thing. Mountains + hurricanes = rapid death.

Mountains might destroy the small system, but small system will be embedded in the gyre over the general area...
