DISCUSSION AND OUTLOOK
----------------------
At 1000 PM CDT (0300 UTC), the center of Tropical Storm Karl was
located near latitude 22.4 North, longitude 94.3 West.  Karl is
nearly stationary.  A slow motion toward the southeast should begin 
early Thursday, with Karl then expected to turn southward over the 
Bay of Campeche on Friday.  On the forecast track, the center of 
Karl should reach the coasts of Tabasco or Veracruz states in 
Mexico Friday night or early Saturday.

Maximum sustained winds are near 60 mph (95 km/h) with higher gusts.
Little change in strength is expected on Thursday, but Karl should 
gradually lose some strength on Friday while it approaches the Bay 
of Campeche coast of Mexico.

Tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 105 miles (165 km)
from the center.

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

Tabasco states in Mexico from Friday into late Saturday.  Rainfall
amounts of 2 to 4 inches, with local maxima up to 6 inches, is
