Hurricane Enrique was a strong Pacific hurricane that brought heavy rainfall and flooding to the southwestern Mexico, causing an unknown number of damages and two direct deaths. The system also threatened the Baja California Peninsula as a tropical storm; however, it became a remnant low prior to affecting the region. Enrique was the fifth depression and named storm, as well as the first hurricane of the 2021 Pacific hurricane season. A tropical wave over the Pacific Ocean near Nicaragua started to produce large amounts of unorganized thunderstorms by June 22. In an environment conducive for intensification, the disturbance traveled west-northwestward and on 09:00 UTC of June 25, advisories were issued on Tropical Storm Enrique as three advanced scatterometer pass on the system showed gale-force winds were present on the system's southeast quadrant. The system further organized under an area of warm waters and low wind shear while continuing its motion, slowing by 21:00 UTC of that day before strengthening to a Category 1 hurricane and turning northwestwards. As it neared the coast of Mexico, Enrique's strengthening trend halted as dry air started to impact the system. An eye feature started to appear on visible satellite imagery by June 26 as it turned northwest.

Meteorological history[edit]

Map plotting the track and the intensity of the storm, according to the Saffir–Simpson scale

On June 20, NHC noted a possible formation of a low-pressure area near the south of Guatemala and Gulf of Tehuantepec.[1] On June 22, a tropical wave formed over Central America with satellite imagery indicating disorganized showers and thunderstorms.[2] With conductive environmental conditions, the system gradually organized and on June 25 at 09:00 UTC, the NHC assessed the system as a tropical storm, assigning the name Enrique.[3] Satellite imagery also revealed that the storm had developed a low-level circulation, with a scatterometer pass over the storm also showing that it was producing tropical storm-force winds to the southeast of the center.[4][3] The storm's structure had further improved six hours later, with prominent banding features to the south and east.[5] Later, a large convective burst developed over the storm.[6] Enrique continued to intensify throughout the day, with the NHC assessing the system to have strengthened into a category 1 hurricane by 09:00 UTC on June 26, after which the system possessed a well-defined central dense overcast and alongside persistent area of cold cloud tops.[7] An area of overshooting cloud tops signaled that the eyewall was developing.[8] However, its structure degraded shortly afterward due to dry air.[9] Enrique's structure improved later, though dry air still was being entrained into the storm's northern side.[10]

Preparations and impact[edit]

Mexico[edit]

At 15:00 UTC on June 25, a Tropical Storm Watch was issued by the Government of Mexico from Punta San Telmo, Michoacán to Cabo Corrientes, Jalisco.[11]
