Last Modified:

Satellite images and tracking maps of Tropical Storm Pilar 2017, September 22 - 25. Max wind speed 50mph.

GOES-16 visible imagery along with ASCAT scatterometer data indicate that Pilar has degenerated into a trough of low pressure extending from the southern tip of the Baja California peninsula and the coast of western Mexico. This is the last advisory issued on Pilar. The highest winds remaining in association with Pilar's remnants are 20 knots, as observed by the scatterometer.

Some deep convection remains in association with the remnants of Pilar along the coast of western Mexico and inland. The main hazard associated with the remnants of Pilar will be heavy rainfall, which could trigger life-threatening flash floods and mudslides over the states of northern Nayarit, the southern portion of Sinaloa, and the southwestern portion of Durango during the next day or so.
