expected somewhere within the warning area within 36 hours.

A Tropical Storm Watch means that tropical storm conditions are
possible within the watch area, generally within 48 hours.

Interests north of the watch area on the Baja California peninsula
should closely monitor the progress of Kay as additional tropical
storm watches could be required tonight.

For storm information specific to your area, please monitor
products issued by your national meteorological service.


DISCUSSION AND OUTLOOK
----------------------
At 600 PM MDT (0000 UTC), the center of Hurricane Kay was located
near latitude 19.2 North, longitude 111.5 West. Kay is moving toward
the northwest near 15 mph (24 km/h) and this general motion should
continue through tonight.  A turn toward the north-northwest is
expected on Wednesday, and this motion should continue into Friday.
On the forecast track, the center of Kay is expected to pass to the
west of the southern Baja California peninsula on Wednesday, and be
near the west-central coast of the Baja California peninsula
Thursday and Friday.

Maximum sustained winds are near 85 mph (140 km/h) with higher
gusts.  Strengthening is forecast during the next 36 hours, and Kay
could become a major hurricane during that time.  Weakening is
forecast to begin by Thursday, but Kay is forecast to remain a
strong hurricane when it passes near the Baja California peninsula.

Hurricane-force winds extend outward up to 30 miles (45 km) from
the center and tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 205
miles (335 km).

The minimum central pressure reported by an Air Force Hurricane 
Hunter aircraft is 976 mb (28.82 inches).


HAZARDS AFFECTING LAND
----------------------
Key messages for Hurricane Kay can be found in the Tropical
Cyclone Discussion under AWIPS header MIATCDEP2 and WMO header
WTPZ42 KNHC and on the web at hurricanes.gov/text/MIATCDEP2.shtml.

WIND: Hurricane conditions are possible in the Hurricane Watch area
beginning Thursday.  Tropical storm conditions are expected in the
Tropical Storm Warning area beginning Wednesday morning and are
forecast to spread northward Wednesday night and Thursday.  Tropical
storm conditions are possible in the Tropical Storm Watch area on
Thursday.

STORM SURGE: A storm surge could produce coastal flooding near
where the center passes the coast in areas of onshore winds, or
east of the center if Kay makes landfall. The surge will be
accompanied by large and destructive waves.

RAINFALL:  Kay is expected to produce rainfall totals of 6 to 10
inches with isolated maxima of 15 inches across the central portions
of the Baja California peninsula through Friday.  Rainfall totals of
3 to 5 inches with maxima of 8 inches are possible across the 
southern portion of the Baja California peninsula.  Rainfall totals 
of 2 to 4 inches are possible across northwestern portions of 
mainland Mexico.  These rainfall amounts could lead to flash 
flooding, including landslides.

SURF:  Swells generated by Kay will continue to affect portions of
the coast of southwestern Mexico during the next couple of days.
Large swells are expected to spread northward along the Baja
California coast and into the Gulf of California during the next
few days. These swells will likely cause life-threatening surf and
rip current conditions.  Please consult products from your local
weather office.
