35-41 Storms Forecast for 2024 Hurricane Season in Mexico

Puerto Vallarta, Mexico – Meteorological experts anticipate an above-average hurricane season for Mexico in 2024. The country’s vulnerability stems from its location between the Pacific and Atlantic Oceans, both of which are expected to see heightened cyclonic activity.

The official season commences on May 15 in the Pacific and June 1 in the Atlantic. Forecasts predict a combined development of 35-41 systems, with 15-18 forming in the Pacific and 20-23 in the Atlantic. Between the two oceans, at least five hurricanes are expected to impact Mexico.

Due to the ‘La Niña’ phenomenon, the probability of tropical cyclone formation in the Atlantic Ocean exceeds 50% of the historical average, which is 14 systems. Historically, Baja California Sur, Sinaloa, Quintana Roo, and Veracruz are most susceptible to landfall.

The Pacific season is anticipated to bring:
8-9 tropical storms
4-5 Category 1 & 2 hurricanes
3-4 major hurricanes (Category 3-5)

Civil Protection and National Meteorological Service personnel will closely monitor weather developments to provide timely warnings and minimize potential catastrophes. Residents are urged to stay informed, prepare for potential cyclone impacts, follow official instructions, and take necessary precautions to safeguard lives and property.
