Going to be watching': Hurricane Agatha expected to hit Mexico on Monday. Is it a threat to the US?
Agatha, the first named storm of the eastern Pacific season
is expected to strengthen to a Category 3 hurricane Monday and bring an "extremely dangerous storm surge and life-threatening winds" to southern Mexico, the National Hurricane Center said.
The storm is expected to maintain its intensity through landfall
on the southern coast of Mexico Monday afternoon or evening
then rapidly weaken over southeastern Mexico Tuesday,
the center said.
Agatha became a hurricane Sunday morning.
It's "way too early to tell what, if anything," Hurricane Agatha means for the U.S.
meteorologist Craig Setzer wrote on Twitter on Saturday. "Right now we're just going to be watching," he said.
AccuWeather meteorologists noted they will be closely monitoring the "leftover energy" from Agatha
