Tropical Storm Lidia, predicted to turn into a hurricane later today, is traveling northeast in the Pacific Ocean and expected to make landfall late Tuesday between Mazatlán and Puerta Vallarta, Mexico. The brunt of the storm is forecast to travel south of the main growing region of Sinaloa which is currently in the planting phase for winter crops.

  • The main growing regions of Sonora and Sinaloa should avoid direct cyclone impact; however, overcast and inclement weather is expected in southern regions
  • Early tomato seedlings south of Culiacan are of concern; delays may occur if replanting is necessary
  • Western and Central Mexico will experience heavy wind and precipitation this week, potentially disrupting labor and transportation routes
  • Markon will continue to monitor and update as more information becomes available
