located near latitude 20.8 North, longitude 93.1 West. Karl is

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 within the warning area late
Friday night or early Saturday.

Maximum sustained winds are near 45 mph (75 km/h) with higher gusts. 
Little change in strength is forecast during the next day or so, 
followed by weakening as Karl moves inland over southern Mexico.

Tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 80 miles (130 km)
from the center.

Data from an Air Force Reserve Hurricane Hunter Aircraft indicate 
that the minimum central pressure is 999 mb (29.50 inches).
