- “Hurricane conditions” this Friday afternoon along the Caribbean coast of Nicaragua.
- In Honduras, COPECO expects the tropical storm to become a Category 1 hurricane, bringing rain to the southwestern, central, and southeastern parts of Honduras and the border with El Salvador.

Potential Tropical Cyclone Two (PTC 2) is located about 160 km east-southeast of Curacao this Wednesday. It was moving rapidly westward near the northern coast of Venezuela. NHC predicted Bonnie “could become a tropical storm at any moment.”
Tropical storm warnings have been in effect for many southern Caribbean countries since mid-week, with warnings of heavy rain, localized flash flooding and tropical storm-force winds.
The official forecast calls for a strong tropical storm to reach Central America on Friday night, weaken as it passes land and emerge in the Pacific, where it will strengthen again.
Unlike Hurricane Agatha, which hit Mexico earlier this year and degenerated and eventually contributed to Alex in the Atlantic, this system is also forecast to remain intact in the Central America. If that happens, the storm will keep the Bonnie name as it crosses the Pacific Ocean.
