DISCUSSION AND OUTLOOK

At 600 PM MDT (0000 UTC), the center of Tropical Storm Javier was
located near latitude 22.5 North, longitude 112.8 West. Javier is
moving toward the north-northwest near 13 mph (21 km/h). A 
slight increase in forward speed with a turn toward the 
west-northwest is anticipated on Saturday, followed by a turn 
toward the west on Sunday. On the forecast track, the center
of Javier should move generally parallel to but well offshore the 
coast of Baja California Sur through Saturday, and then turn away 
from land on Sunday.

Maximum sustained winds are near 45 mph (75 km/h) with higher
gusts. Some slight strengthening is possible tonight or Saturday 
before Javier begins to weaken on Sunday. Javier is forecast to 
become post-tropical in about 48 hours.

Tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 80 miles (130 km)
from the center. 

The estimated minimum central pressure is 1000 mb (29.53 inches).
