Dangerous storms are expected in parts of North and Central America on Memorial Day, bringing heavy rain and flash flooding.
Weather forecasters expect Hurricane Agatha to make landfall in Mexico and Central America on Monday, bringing mudslides and strong winds.
Parts of the US are also likely to experience severe weather originating from a separate storm system.
Dangerous storms are forecast to hit the Upper Midwest Monday, according to the Weather Channel.
Weather Channel meteorologist Heather Tesch said a so-called “hatched area” within the storm system will be “bigger, stronger and longer lasting.”
“There storms are likely to bring damaging hail, damaging 60-80 mph wind gusts.
States that could be affected by the storm’s more dangerous stretch of outbreak include parts of eastern Kansas, most of Nebraska, Iowa and Minnesota.
Eastern parts of North Dakota and South Dakota are also likely to be affected.
The weather system could also produce tornadoes.
In the south, Hurricane Agatha is also expected to move through parts of Mexico and Central America on Monday.
The storm marks the first hurricane to emerge from the eastern Pacific in the 2022 season.
According to the Weather Channel, the storm accompanying Agatha could be life-threatening.
The hurricane had already hit 35 miles per hour as of Sunday morning and is expected to get worse as it makes landfall on Mexico’s southeastern coast, the Weather Channel reported.
In addition to the strong winds, the storm is also moving at a slow pace.
Meteorologists said the slow rate of movement is helping create conditions ripe for dangerous weather.
The slow pace will particularly support flash flood and mudslide conditions.
Agatha is expected to land his first hit in the Mexican states of Chiapas and Oaxaca.
Several states along the country’s south coast are under hurricane warnings.
