DISCUSSION AND OUTLOOK
----------------------
At 700 AM CDT (1200 UTC), the center of Hurricane Rick was located
near latitude 18.2 North, longitude 102.1 West.  Rick is moving
toward the north near 8 mph (13 km/h).  A north-northwestward to
northward motion is expected over the next 12 to 24 hours.  On the
forecast track, the center of Rick will move farther inland over 
southern Mexico today and tonight.

Maximum sustained winds are near 105 mph (165 km/h) with higher 
gusts.  Rapid weakening is expected today while Rick moves over 
land, 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 Lazaro Cardenas in the state of
Michoacan recently reported a wind gust to 36 mph (58 km/h) and a 
pressure of 997 mb (29.44 inches).

The estimated minimum central pressure 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 over 
portions of the Hurricane Warning area this morning.  Tropical 
storm conditions will continue through early this afternoon within 
portions of the Tropical Storm Warning areas.

STORM SURGE:  A storm surge is producing significant coastal 
flooding in areas of onshore winds in southern Mexico.  Near the 
coast, the surge is 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.
