MIAMI (June 18, 2013)--A tropical depression was dumping heavy rains on Central America Tuesday as it pushed toward southern Mexico, forecasters said.
The National Hurricane Center in Miami said the Atlantic season's second tropical depression could produce as much as 10 inches in parts of Belize, Guatemala and southern Mexico.
The depression formed Monday off Belize and was moving Tuesday over parts of Belize and northern Guatemala with maximum sustained winds of 30 miles per hour.
Movement was to the west-northwest at 8 miles per hour.
Forecasters say the depression could strengthen Wednesday nearing Mexico's Bay of Campeche.
The heavy rains may cause flash flooding, but no coastal watches or warnings have been issued.
