Satellite images and tracking maps of Category 2 Hurricane Rick 2021, October 20 - 26. Max wind speed 105mph.
Heavy rains associated with Rick will continue to spread across the Mexican states of Guerrero and Michoacan through tonight, and could persist through Tuesday. This rainfall will likely produce dangerous flash flooding and mudslides.
Satellite imagery and surface observations indicate that Rick has dissipated over the mountainous terrain of west-central Mexico. The surface low, if one exists, appears to be elongated east-to-west based on a few weather observations, and there is no organized deep convection within 150 nautical miles of the poorly defined center. Therefore, this will be the final NHC advisory on Rick.
Although the system has dissipated, deep-layer moisture associated with Rick's remnants will continue to spread northward over south-central and west-central Mexico. As a result, heavy rainfall is expected across portions of those areas through at least Tuesday. These rains may contribute to dangerous flash flooding and mudslides. For additional information on the heavy rainfall and flood potential, please consult products issued by your local weather forecast office.
