Hurricane warning for the Costalegre

As hurricane Erick approaches there is a hurricane warning for all of the Costalegre. Very possible high winds and rain estimates from 3-5 inches with up to 8 inches possible in places.

The intensity forecast remains a challenge since Erick is not that far offshore of Mexico. The hurricane could intensify a little more today while it remains over warm waters without much shear. The environment will gradually become less conducive tomorrow due to Erick moving across cooler waters and possibly interacting with land. A more rapid weakening should commence after the weekend with much colder waters in the path of Erick along with drier more stable air. The NHC forecast continues the trend of the previous one...and is close to the intensity consensus.

The Costalegre

I have long thought that Costalegre was an agreed upon catch word for the Costa Alegre. Now I'm finding there is another long time standard, Coastecomates. This is about that area as well.

The stretch of coastline located between Costa Majahuas and Cihuatlán is the Costalegre or “happy coast.” Others describe the Costalegre as the area between Puerto Vallarta and Manzanillo. Either way it is still "the happy coast". Pacific Coast of Mexico
