Short summary
Time series of hindcast wave data on the eastern Mexican coast were analysed. The goal was to examine the presence of interannual trends in the number or the main features of wave storm events. Storms were classified as related to tropical cyclones or Norte events. There is no significant change in the events related to Nortes during the study period. However, there are subtle increases in the number, wave height and energy content of events related to tropical cyclones in the western Caribbean.
