Tropical Storm Simon Forecast to Bring Rain to the Desert Southwest

Shared by IMSG

Simon’s cloud pattern continues to deteriorate with almost all of the remaining deep convection displaced well to the east and north of the low-level center. With continued steady weakening expected, the remnant low should move across the northern Baja California peninsula and then into extreme northwestern mainland Mexico and the southwestern United States over the next couple of days. Even if Simon or its remnant circulation does not make it across the rugged terrain of the Baja California peninsula, moisture associated with this system is expected to spread across the northern Baja California peninsula, northwestern Mexico, and into the U.S. Desert Southwest, which could trigger heavy rains in those regions during the next few days. This image was taken by GOES East at 1745Z on October 6, 2014.
