By BBN Staff: This morning, a report from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) reported that a tropical storm warning is in effect for the Pacific coast of Mexico from Salina Cruz to Puerto Escondido as Tropical Depression Two-E approaches.

According to the NOAA, tropical storm conditions are expected to begin within the warning area later this morning.

Tropical depression two-E was centered as of 4 a.m. CDT about 55 miles (85 km) southwest of Acapulco. Maximum sustained winds remain near 35 mph (55 km/h) with higher gusts.

The NOAA reports that the depression still has the opportunity to become a tropical storm later today before the center moves inland. It is projected to weaken after making landfall.

The depression is expected to produce total rainfall accumulations of 8 to 12 inches across the Mexican state of Oaxaca with isolated maximum totals of 20 inches possible.

The rainfall is likely to produce life-threatening flash floods and mudslides.
