DISCUSSION AND OUTLOOK
----------------------
At 1200 PM MDT (1800 UTC), the center of Tropical Storm Javier was
located near latitude 25.8 North, longitude 115.4 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).
