DISCUSSION AND OUTLOOK
----------------------
At 900 AM MDT (1500 UTC), the center of Tropical Storm Javier was 
located near latitude 25.1 North, longitude 114.8 West. Javier is 
moving toward the northwest near 15 mph (24 km/h).  This general 
motion is forecast to continue through today. A slow turn toward the 
west-northwest to west is expected to begin early Sunday. On the 
forecast track, the center of Javier should move generally parallel 
to but offshore of the coast of Baja California Sur through today, 
and then turn away from the coast on Sunday.

Maximum sustained winds are near 45 mph (75 km/h) with higher gusts.
Javier is expected to gradually weaken over the next few days and 
become a post-tropical cyclone by early 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).
