Hurricane Ingrid is forecast to make landfall on the east central Mexican coast later today (Monday).

Here are the latest hurricane stats as of 4am CDT:
Location:  23.4N  97.1W
Moving:  WNW @ 7mph
Min Pressure:  989mb
Maximum Sustained Wind: 75 mph

The 75 mph wind makes Ingrid barely a hurricane.  Once the winds speeds sustained fall to 73 mph it will be downgraded to a Tropical Storm.

The storm is forecast to make landfall shortly in east central Mexican Coast in the Mexican state of Tamaulipas. 

The main factors that will effect Mexico will be very heavy extended rainfall which could produce mudslides and significant problems.  In addition the storm could create storm surge of 2-4 feet during landfall.

At this time it appears that Ingrid will have no effect on Texas weather as it is located too far south along the Mexican coast.
