UPDATED: The Climate and Hydrology Research program of the ICC, reports that 3 cyclonic systems have formed in the Atlantic Ocean, therefore, those are being monitored because of their indirect influence in Guatemala. The now category 1 hurricane Katia formed in the Gulf of Mexico. Irma, a category 5 hurricane is heading towards the Caribbean and the Southern zone of the United States, with winds up to 185 mph. And Jose has just become a category 1 hurricane and could follow the trajectory of the hurricane Irma. Jose is around 1,505 miles (2,450 kilometers) east to the Lesser Antilles and has winds of up to 75 mph. .

Those systems do not represent any danger to Guatemala; however, it is indirectly allowing cloudy skies and rain with electric activity to occur in the country. Rains will be more frequent in the afternoons and nights, and there is a high probability that they will be more intense in the volcanic chain, south west and central areas of the country.
