NASA's Aqua satellite captured a look at the depression just prior to its classification as a tropical storm. As showers and storms continue to impact the area, flooding will be a concern through Tuesday. On Monday afternoon, Calvin was about 70 miles (113 km) east-southeast of the coastal town of Puerto Angel in southern Mexico, according to the Miami-based NHC.

An evening bulletin from the U.S. National Hurricane Center said Calvin was making landfall on the coast of Oaxaca state.

Regardless of the system's strength, heavy rain is the main threat to Mexico and southern Guatemala.

Tropical Storm Beatriz soaked the same area with torrential rains in early June. The storm was blowing maximum sustained winds of 40 miles per hour (64 kph), and moving northwest at five miles per hour (three kph), the NHC added.

"The primary concern with this feature is going to be the potential for excessive rainfall over the southern part of the Mexican state of Oaxaca, as well as southeastern Guerrero and southwestern Chiapas", said Strait.
