Tara to deliver tropical storm conditions in western states

Tropical Storm Tara has formed off the coast of Colima and Michoacán and is forecast to produce strong winds and heavy rain in Jalisco, Colima, Michoacán and Guanajuato, the National Meteorological Service said.

A tropical storm watch is in effect from Punta San Telmo in Michoacán to Cabo Corrientes, Jalisco.

The storm was situated 155 kilometers south of Manzanillo, Colima, at 10:00am CDT, according to the United States National Hurricane Center (NHC), and was moving west-northwest at two kilometers per hour.

Some strengthening is forecast but the expected track of the storm will keep it near or just offshore during the next two days and moving westward after the middle of the week.

Maximum sustained winds were close to 75 kilometers per hour.

Waves two to three meters high are predicted for the coasts of Jalisco, Colima, Guerrero and Michoacán.
