DISCUSSION AND OUTLOOK

At 1000 PM CDT (0300 UTC), the center of Tropical Storm Karl was
located near latitude 20.6 North, longitude 92.8 West. Karl is
moving toward the southeast near 7 mph (11 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 coast of
southern Mexico late Friday night or early Saturday.

Maximum sustained winds are near 45 mph (75 km/h) with higher gusts.
Little change in strength is expected through tonight. Some slight
weakening is possible on Friday before the center of Karl reaches
the coast. Steady weakening is expected after the storm crosses the
coastline, and the system is forecast to dissipate over southern
Mexico by Saturday night.

Tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 70 miles (110 km)
from the center.

The minimum central pressure measured by the Air Force Reserve
reconnaissance aircraft is 998 mb (29.47 inches).
