Tropical Storm Newton made landfall again early Wednesday morning in mainland Mexico on its path toward the United States, the U.S. National Hurricane Center said. The storm could bring potentially dangerous rains to parts of the country. “The main concern with this system will be heavy rainfall that will be spreading from northwestern Mexico into Arizona and New Mexico over the next day or so,” the center said in its latest forecast. “These rains could cause flooding and mudslides.” The storm is expected to cross into the U.S. near Tucson, Arizona, later Wednesday morning or early afternoon, bringing with it heavy rains and high winds.
