Hurricane Franklin: Heavy Rain Threat To Mexico (RECAP)

Franklin made landfall as a hurricane in eastern Mexico overnight on August 10th and, despite weakening rapidly to a remnant low over the highest terrain, will pose a dangerous flood threat for some inland locations into Friday.

After becoming the Atlantic Basin's first hurricane of 2017 over the Bay of Campeche, Franklin made landfall around midnight CDT Thursday in the Mexican state of Veracruz as a Category 1 hurricane with maximum estimated winds of 85 mph.

La Vigueta in the state of Veracruz has reported a wind gust of 45 mph, while hurricane hunters reported wind gusts as high as 90 mph a few hundred miles off the coast evening on the 9th. 

Although Franklin's circulation has fallen apart over Mexico, it will bring moisture with it across the continent. An additional 2 to 5 inches of rainfall is possible across southwestern Mexico from whatever is left of Franklin when it reaches the Pacific. 

Flash flooding and mudslides are likely to be major concerns as Franklin grinds across this region's mountainous terrain.
