DISCUSSION AND OUTLOOK
----------------------
At 1000 AM CDT (1500 UTC), the center of Tropical Storm Karl was
located near latitude 21.7 North, longitude 93.9 West. Karl is
moving toward the south-southeast near 5 mph (7 km/h), and this 
general motion should continue through tonight.  Karl is expected 
to turn southward or south-southwestward over the Bay of Campeche 
on Friday, and this motion should continue through early Saturday.  
On the forecast track, the center of Karl should reach the coasts 
of Tabasco or Veracruz states in Mexico late Friday night or early 
Saturday.

Maximum sustained winds are near 50 mph (85 km/h) with higher gusts.
Karl is forecast to gradually lose some strength later today or 
on Friday while it approaches the Bay of Campeche coast of Mexico.

Tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 80 miles (130 km)
from the center.  NOAA buoy 42055 located just north of the center 
of Karl recently reported sustained winds of 38 mph (61 km/h) and a 
gust to 45 mph (72 km/h).

The minimum central pressure estimated from Air Force Reserve
