Harvey Dissipated Over Mexico Mountains
UPDATED 9:45 AM CDT, August 22, 2011
UPDATED By WeatherBug Sr. Meteorologist, James West
Tropical Depression Harvey has dissipated over Mexico's Sierra Madre range. Even so, it will still bring heavy rain for the next several days and could trigger flash flooding and mudslides.
As of 10 a.m. CDT, remnants of Harvey were located near 18.1 N and 97.3 W, or about 105 miles southwest of Veracruz, Mexico. What remains of Harvey has top sustained winds of 30 mph, and it is moving toward the west at 13 mph. Its minimum central pressure remains steady at 1008 mb, or 29.77 inches of mercury.
The remnants will produce another 2 to 4 inches of rain in Veracruz, Oaxaca, Hidalgo, Puebla and Tiaxcala with higher totals near one foot in the higher terrain. This will cause life-threatening flash floods and mudslides.
