Tropical Storm Fernand makes landfall in Mexico as Gabrielle spins in the Atlantic

Hurricane Dorian isn’t the only storm forecasters are keeping an eye on.

Two other named storms are blowing in the Atlantic Basin, which includes the Caribbean Sea and Gulf of Mexico.

Tropical Storm Fernand made landfall Tuesday morning along the Mexico coast just south of the U.S. border, with top sustained winds near 50 mph.

The hurricane center said heavy rainfall of up to 18 inches could fall in places along Mexico’s Gulf Coast and the Sierra Madre Oriental and could cause “life-threatening flash floods and mudslides” as the storm  moves ashore Wednesday.

Up to a half-foot of rain could fall in portions of South Texas, where a tornado or two could spin up Wednesday afternoon, the hurricane center said.

Tropical Storm Gabrielle is far out in the Atlantic Ocean and poses no threat to land. It is about 715 miles west-northwest of the Cabo Verde Islands and is expected to remain a tropical storm on a track far from North America.

In the Pacific, two systems are spinning: 100-mph Hurricane Juliette and a tropical depression, both of which are in the open ocean. Neither is forecast to hit land.
