DISCUSSION AND OUTLOOK
----------------------
At 300 AM MDT (0900 UTC), the center of Tropical Storm Javier was
located near latitude 19.9 North, longitude 111.7 West. Javier is
moving toward the northwest near 10 mph (17 km/h), and an increase 
in forward speed is expected through early Saturday.  A turn toward 
the west-northwest is forecast on Saturday, followed by a turn 
toward the west on Sunday. 

Maximum sustained winds are near 40 mph (65 km/h) with higher gusts.
Some additional strengthening is forecast through Saturday before 
Javier begins to weaken by Sunday evening.  

Tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 80 miles (130 km)
from the center.  An automated Mexican navy weather station on 
Socorro Islands recently reported a wind gust of 47 mph (76 km/h).

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


HAZARDS AFFECTING LAND
----------------------
SURF:  Swells generated by Javier are expected to affect portions 
of the southern and central Baja California peninsula.  These 
swells are likely to cause life-threatening surf and rip current 
conditions.  Please consult products from your local weather office.

RAINFALL:  Outer rainbands should move onshore of the southwestern 
coast of Baja California Sur within the next few hours. Tropical 
Storm Javier is expected to produce 1 to 2 inches of rainfall, with 
isolated storm total amounts of 4 inches across portions of Baja 
California Sur through this weekend.
