NOAA's hurricane outlook points towards an active season with 11-17 named storms, 5-9 hurricanes, with 2-4 of those being major hurricanes.

Calvin made landfall as a tropical storm approximately 37 mi (60 km) west southwest of Salina Cruz (pop. ~76,000), Oaxaca, at midnight UTC this morning, Tuesday June 13. NASA's Aqua satellite captured a look at the depression just prior to its classification as a tropical storm.

The U.S. won't see any direct impacts from this storm.

Some strengthening is possible and the depression could become Tropical Storm Calvin before it slides inland.

A tropical storm warning remained in effect for the coast from Salina Cruz to Laguna de Chacahua, and the center said further heavy rains and flooding were expected.

An evening bulletin from the U.S. National Hurricane Center said Calvin was making landfall on the coast of Oaxaca state.

Five to 10 inches of rainfall are forecast across southern Guatemala and the Mexican states of Chiapas, Oaxaca and Guerrero, with isolated amounts up to 20 inches possible. Calvin is also forecast to produce total rain accumulations of 3 to 6 inches in the Mexican states of Tabasco, Morelos, Mexico, and Michoaca, as well as in Guatemala. Maximum sustained winds have decreased to near 30 miles per hour (45 kph).

"Regardless of the strength of this system, heavy rain will impact coastal regions of southern Mexico through the middle of the week", said AccuWeather Senior Meteorologist Matt Rinde.
