Hurricane Beryl would reach Yucatán with category two: it would affect Mérida

Hurricane Beryl was located in front of the Yucatan Peninsula on July 4 at night, where it would still enter as a category three cyclone on Friday 5 morning, according to the United States National Hurricane Center in its 9 p.m. bulletin.

The meteor reduced its speed of movement to 26 kilometers per hour, so it is now expected to make landfall around 6 in the morning at a point in the Sian Ka’an biosphere, near Punta Yuyum in Quintana Roo. It currently has sustained winds of 185 kilometers per hour, with higher gusts.

It is expected that after the impact, the meteor will reduce the speed of its winds as it moves over Quintana Roo and enters Yucatán with category two.

It is forecast to enter Yucatecan territory through Tixcacalcupul, shortly before 8 in the morning, passing through the communities of Mahas and Poop. It would cross Chikindzonot, Yaxcabá, and Tecoh, where it would be around 2 in the afternoon.

It would then affect communities in Mérida such as Yaxnic and San José Tzal, to continue its path to Umán and Kinchil, where it would arrive around 6 in the afternoon as a tropical storm. The meteor would emerge into the Gulf of Mexico somewhere between Celestún and Sisal on Friday night.

According to the US National Hurricane Center, rapid weakening is expected as Beryl crosses the Yucatan Peninsula, but slow re-intensification is expected as it moves over the Gulf of Mexico.

Its hurricane-force winds extend outward up to 45 kilometers from the center and tropical storm-force winds extend outward up to 220 km.
