Tropical Storm Chris Discussion Number   3
NWS National Hurricane Center Miami FL       AL032024
400 AM CDT Mon Jul 01 2024

Around 0450 UTC, Chris is estimated to have made landfall near 
Lechuguillas in the Mexican state of Veracruz.  Since then, 
satellite infrared imagery showed an increase in the thunderstorm 
activity in the eastern portion of the circulation, near the region 
of the radius of maximum wind which is still over the Bay of 
Campeche.  Therefore, the initial intensity is held at 35 kt for 
this advisory. Chris should weaken quickly throughout the day as the 
system moves just north of west at an estimated 280/10 kt inland 
over eastern Mexico. Simulated satellite data from global models 
suggest Chris will dissipate over the higher terrain later today 
and the official forecast now shows dissipation occuring by 12 h, 
if not sooner.

Key messages:

1. Heavy rainfall will result in areas of flooding across portions
of eastern Mexico this morning, with mudslides possible in areas of
higher terrain.

2. Tropical-storm-force winds are expected for the next few hours in
the tropical storm warnings area in Mexico.
