MEXICO CITY – Sonia first formed Friday, Nov. 1 as Tropical Depression Eighteen-E a few hundred miles southwest of Manzanillo, Mexico. It struggled at first, but finally became a tropical storm on Sunday morning.

Tropical Storm Sonia picked up speed as it took aim at the Pacific coast of Mexico on Sunday, threatening intense rains over a large portion of western Mexico that experienced major flooding over the past couple of months.

Sonia was churning 115 miles south of the resort city of Los Cabos at the southern tip of the Baja California peninsula and was expected to approach the mainland coast Sunday night or early Monday, the Miami-based U.S. National Hurricane Center said in its latest advisory.

The weather system was traveling north-northeast at 14 miles per hour with maximum sustained winds of 45 mph, the NHC said.

After spinning over the open waters south of Baja California, increasing southwest winds aloft should slingshot the storm into the mainland of western Mexico, narrowly bypassing the southern Baja peninsula (including Cabo San Lucas). Landfall is expected sometime late Sunday night or Monday morning.

Sonia is expected to produce rainfall of 3 to 10 inches in both Sinaloa and Durango states, the NHC said.

Mexico’s national water commission said heavy rains could extend to seven other western and northern states.

Tropical storm-force winds, locally heavy rain, and a threat of high surf and rip currents are the primary threats with this system for parts of western Mexico.

The Government of Mexico has issued a tropical storm warning for the west coast of Mexico from Mazatlan to Altata. A tropical storm watch remains in effect north of Altata to Topolobampo.

In September, Mexico suffered its worst flooding since records began when storms Manuel and Ingrid converged from the Pacific and the Gulf of Mexico, killing more than 150 people and causing damage estimated at around $6 billion.

Last month, Hurricane Raymond caused some flooding as it approached the Pacific resort cities of Acapulco and Zihuantanejo, but no deaths or major damage was reported.
