DISCUSSION AND OUTLOOK
----------------------
At 1200 AM MDT (0600 UTC), the center of Tropical Storm Javier was
located near latitude 23.5 North, longitude 113.6 West. Javier is
moving toward the north-northwest near 14 mph (22 km/h). This
general motion is forecast to continue through today. A slow turn 
toward the west is expected to begin by 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 the coast on Sunday.

Maximum sustained winds are near 50 mph (85 km/h) with higher 
gusts. Slight additional strengthening is possible this morning 
before the tropical storm begins to weaken by this evening. 
Javier is forecast to become post-tropical on Sunday.

Tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 90 miles (150 km)
from the center.

The estimated minimum central pressure is 999 mb (29.50 inches).
