DISCUSSION AND OUTLOOK
----------------------
At 800 AM EDT (1200 UTC), the center of Tropical Storm Julia was
located by an Air Force Reserve Hurricane Hunter aircraft near 
latitude 12.8 North, longitude 79.0 West.  Julia is moving toward 
the west near 21 mph (33 km/h). This general motion should continue 
through tonight, followed by a westward or west-northwestward motion 
at a slower forward speed on Sunday and Sunday night. On the 
forecast track, the center of Julia is expected to pass near or over 
San Andres and Providencia Islands this evening and then reach the 
coast of Nicaragua on Sunday morning.  Julia or its remnants will 
then turn west-northwestward near the Pacific coast of Central 
America by Monday.

Maximum sustained winds are near 60 mph (95 km/h) with higher
gusts. Steady to rapid strengthening is forecast while Julia moves
across the southwestern Caribbean Sea today and tonight, and the
system is expected to become a hurricane later today. Rapid
weakening is forecast after Julia moves inland on Sunday, and it is
likely to become a remnant low on Monday.

Tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 115 miles (185 km)
from the center.

Data from the Air Force Reserve reconnaissance aircraft indicate 
that the minimum central pressure is 994 mb (29.35 inches).
