Discussion under AWIPS header MIATCDEP3 and WMO header WTPZ43 KNHC

WIND:  Tropical storm conditions are likely occurring along the 
Pacific coast of northwestern Nicaragua, Honduras, and El Salvador. 
Tropical storm conditions are possible along the Pacific coast of 
Guatemala today.

RAINFALL:  Julia is expected to produce the following rainfall
accumulations through Tuesday:

Nicaragua and El Salvador...5 to 10 inches, isolated 15 inches.
Honduras, Belize, northern Guatemala, and the Isthmus of Tehuantepec
in Mexico...3 to 6 inches, isolated 10 inches.
Southern Guatemala...4 to 8 inches, isolated 12 inches.

This rainfall may cause life-threatening flash floods and mudslides
across Central America through today. Flash flooding is anticipated
across the Isthmus of Tehuantepec in Mexico early this week.

SURF:  Swells generated by Julia continue to affect Providencia and
San Andres Islands and the Caribbean coast of Central America, but
should gradually subside through tonight. Swells not caused by
Julia are expected to affect the Pacific coast of Central America
during the next couple of days. These swells are likely to cause
life-threatening surf and rip current conditions. Please consult
products from your local weather office.
