DISCUSSION AND OUTLOOK
----------------------
At 400 PM CDT (2100 UTC), the center of Hurricane Lisa was located
near latitude 17.4 North, longitude 88.2 West. Lisa is moving toward
the west near 12 mph (19 km/h).  This general motion is expected to 
continue for the next day or so, bringing the center of Lisa across 
Belize, northern Guatemala, and southeastern Mexico.  After that 
time, a turn to the northwest and a decrease in forward speed are 
expected as Lisa moves over the Bay of Campeche.

Maximum sustained winds have increased to near 85 mph (140 km/h) 
with higher gusts.  Rapid weakening will occur after the center of 
Lisa moves inland.

Hurricane-force winds extend outward up to 15 miles (30 km) from the
center and tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 70 miles
(110 km).  An observation in Belize City recently reported a wind 
gust of 70 mph (115 km/h).

The estimated minimum central pressure is 990 mb (29.24 inches).


HAZARDS AFFECTING LAND
----------------------
WIND: Hurricane conditions are expected along the coast of Belize
and the southeastern Yucatan peninsula during the next few hours.
Tropical storm conditions are expected through tonight in portions
of Guatemala and Yucatan in the Tropical Storm Warning areas.

RAINFALL: Lisa is expected to produce rainfall amounts of:

4 to 6 inches with local amounts to 10 inches across Belize,
northern Guatemala, the southern portion of the Mexican state of
Quintana Roo. southern Campeche, Tabasco, northern Chiapas, and far
eastern Veracruz.

2 to 4 inches with local amounts to 6 inches across the far
southeastern portion of the Yucatan Peninsula, the Bay Islands of
Honduras, central Guatemala and south-central Campeche.

This rainfall could lead to flash flooding conditions, primarily
across Belize into northern Guatemala, the far southeast portion of
the Yucatan peninsula, the southern portion of the Mexican state of
Campeche, Tabasco, northern Chiapas and far eastern Veracruz.

STORM SURGE:  A storm surge will likely raise water levels by as
much as 4 to 7 feet above normal tide levels near and to the north
of where the center of Lisa crosses the coast of Belize and
extreme southeastern portions of the Yucatan Peninsula.  Elsewhere,
a storm surge of 1 to 3 feet is possible within the Tropical Storm
Warning area in eastern Yucatan and up to 1 foot for the Bay
Islands of Honduras. Near the coast, the surge will be accompanied
by large and damaging waves.

SURF:  Swells generated by Lisa are expected to affect portions of
Central America during the next day or two. These swells could
cause life-threatening surf and rip current conditions. Please
consult products from your local weather office.
