DISCUSSION AND OUTLOOK

At 700 PM CDT (0000 UTC), the center of Tropical Depression
Thirteen-E was located near latitude 12.8 North, longitude 95.6
West. The depression is moving toward the northwest near 3 mph (6

expected over the next couple of days.  On the forecast track, the
center of the cyclone is expected to approach the southern coast of
Mexico within the watch area on Saturday.

Maximum sustained winds are near 35 mph (55 km/h) with higher
gusts. Gradual strengthening is forecast during the next couple of
days, and the depression is forecast to become a tropical storm
tonight or Friday.

The estimated minimum central pressure is 1007 mb (29.74 inches).


HAZARDS AFFECTING LAND
----------------------
RAINFALL:  The system is expected to produce rainfall totals of
3-6 inches with isolated maximum totals of 10 inches across coastal
portions of the Mexican States of Oaxaca, Guerrero, and Michoac√°n
through Sunday morning. These rains may produce flash and urban
flooding, along with isolated mudslides in areas of higher terrain
near the coast.

WIND:  Tropical storm conditions are possible within the watch
area beginning early Saturday.

SURF:  Swells generated by the depression are expected to begin
affecting portions of the coast of southern Mexico by late Friday
and continue into the weekend.  These swells are likely to cause
life-threatening surf and rip current conditions.  Please consult
products from your local weather office.
