The Climate and Hydrology Research program of the Private Institute for Climate Change Research -ICC- continues to monitor the Franklin Tropical Storm, which is located in the Gulf of Mexico and that is moving towards Continental Mexico. This system is causing instability in the Pacific Ocean; as a consequence, the southern and central regions of Guatemala will have partly cloudy skies, rains, light drizzles, and rains with electric activity in the afternoons and nights. The forecast also indicates that, by the weekend, an eastern wave will pass through Guatemala allowing humidity to enter the southern region of the country and causing rains.
The NASA picture shows the humidity caused by the cyclonic system in red and orange colors, as well as the clouds in the Pacific Ocean and that could reach Guatemala. The ICC will continue to monitor this storm.
