DISCUSSION AND OUTLOOK
----------------------
At 100 AM CDT (0600 UTC), the center of Tropical Storm Karl was 
located near latitude 22.5 North, longitude 94.3 West.  Karl is 
nearly stationary currently.  A slow motion toward the southeast 
should begin later today, 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 today, 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 latest minimum central pressure reported by an Air Force 
Reserve Hurricane Hunter aircraft is 1002 mb (29.59 inches).

amounts of 2 to 4 inches, with local maxima up to 6 inches, is
