DISCUSSION AND OUTLOOK
----------------------
At 400 AM CDT (0900 UTC), the center of Hurricane Rick was located
near latitude 17.7 North, longitude 101.9 West. Rick is moving
toward the north near 8 mph (13 km/h).  A north-northwestward to
northward motion is expected over the 12 to 24 hours.  On the
forecast track, the center of Rick will make landfall on the coast
of Mexico within the hurricane warning area within the next couple
of hours, and then move inland over southern Mexico by later today.

Data from an Air Force Reserve Hurricane Hunter aircraft indicate
that the maximum sustained winds have increased to near 105 mph
(165 km/h) with higher gusts.  Little change in strength is
expected before Rick makes landfall in southern Mexico.  After
landfall, rapid weakening is expected, and Rick is forecast to
dissipate over the mountainous terrain of southern Mexico tonight or
Tuesday.

Rick is a compact tropical cyclone.  Hurricane-force winds only
extend outward up to 25 miles (35 km) from the center and
tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 80 miles (130 km).
A Mexican Navy observing station in Puerto Vicente in the state of
Guerrero reported a wind gust to 60 mph (96 km/h) within the past
couple of hours.

The minimum central pressure estimated from reconnaissance
aircraft data is 977 mb (28.85 inches).


HAZARDS AFFECTING LAND
----------------------
Key messages for Rick can be found in the Tropical Cyclone
Discussion under AWIPS header MIATCDEP2, WMO header WTPZ42 KNHC,
and on the web at
www.hurricanes.gov/graphics_ep2.shtml?key_messages.

WIND:  Hurricane and tropical storm conditions will continue to
spread onshore within portions of the Hurricane Warning area this
morning. Tropical storm conditions will continue through early
afternoon within portions of the Tropical Storm Warning areas.

STORM SURGE:  A storm surge is expected to produce significant
coastal flooding in areas of onshore winds near and to the east of
where the center of Rick makes landfall in southern Mexico. Near
the coast, the surge will be accompanied by large and destructive
waves.

RAINFALL:  Rick is expected to produce 5 to 10 inches of rain with
isolated storm total amounts of 20 inches across sections of the
Mexican states of Guerrero and Michoacan through Tuesday. This heavy
rainfall will likely produce flash flooding and mudslides.

SURF: Swells generated by Rick will affect portions of the
southwestern coast of Mexico through early Tuesday. These
swells are likely to cause life-threatening surf and rip current
conditions. Please consult products from your local weather office.
