Hurricane Enrique – the first Eastern Pacific hurricane of the 2021 season formed on Friday, June 25 and is currently tracking north-northwest along the west coast of Mexico.

It is forecast to lose intensity before making a landfall in Mexico’s Baja California peninsula by June 30. It will continue to track North-westward and will turn into a tropical depression by July 1. The system is expected to weaken further and transition into a post-tropical cyclone with tropical depression strength winds and will likely make another landfall over far western Baja California Sur State. It will rapidly weaken and dissipate by July 2.

Heavy rainfall, strong winds, and rough seas along western coast of Mexico will likely occur till July 2. Sustained heavy rainfall could trigger flooding in the low-lying regions. Hurricane Enrique could also produce damaging wind gusts, resulting in power outages.
