At 09 AM UTC on October 20, the center of Tropical Storm "Vicente" was located about 130 km SW of Tapachula and 330 km SE of Salina Cruz, Mexico. Maximum sustained winds were 65 km/h and minimum central pressure 1 005 hPa. The storm is moving WNW at 11 km/h.

There are currently no coastal watches or warnings in effect. However, interests along the southeastern and southern coast of Mexico should monitor the progress of this storm.

Vicente is a tiny cyclone but heavy rain and flash flooding are possible over portions of southeastern Mexico.

An increase in forward speed and a turn toward the west is expected by this afternoon, followed by a turn toward the southwest later tonight (CDT).

On the forecast track, the center of Vicente will gradually move farther away from the coasts of Guatemala and southeastern Mexico today.

Tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 35 km.
