Crossing the Yucatan peninsula, Hermine weakened slightly.
This was temporary, as the center
of its circulation moved into the Gulf of Mexico and the system restrengthened into a tropical storm. The
cyclone turned southwest and decreased its forward motion. Hermine made landfall southeast of Vera Cruz
as a strong tropical storm on the morning of the 24th, with its circulation dissipating a couple days later.
Satellite imagery shows that its mid-level circulation turned more to the west across southern Mexico, causing
heavy rainfall along the western Mexican coast by the 27th. The disturbance moved up the west coast of
Mexico, and recurved across northwest Mexico into central Texas by the morning of the 29th.
