DISCUSSION AND OUTLOOK
----------------------
At 300 AM MDT (0900 UTC), the center of Tropical Storm Estelle was 
located near latitude 18.6 North, longitude 114.7 West. Estelle is 
moving toward the west near 13 mph (20 km/h). A slight turn toward 
the west-northwest is expected later today, and this general motion 
should continue through midweek.

Satellite derived wind data indicate that maximum sustained winds 
have decreased to near 65 mph (100 km/h) with higher gusts. 
Additional weakening is expected during the next few days, and 
Estelle is forecast to degenerate into a post-tropical remnant low 
on Thursday.

Tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 115 miles (185 km)
from the center. An automated Mexican Navy weather station on 
Clarion Island recently reported a gust of 44 mph (70 km/h).

The estimated minimum central pressure is 995 mb (29.39 inches).


HAZARDS AFFECTING LAND
----------------------
SURF:  Swells generated by Estelle will continue to affect portions 
of the coasts of southwestern Mexico, west-central Mexico, and the 
southern Baja California peninsula today. These swells are likely to 
cause life-threatening surf and rip current conditions. Please 
consult products from your local weather office.
