DISCUSSION AND OUTLOOK
----------------------
At 100 AM CDT (0600 UTC), the center of Tropical Storm Karl was
located near latitude 20.4 North, longitude 92.5 West. Karl is
moving toward the southeast near 7 mph (11 km/h), and this general
motion should continue through this morning. Karl is expected to 
turn southward or south-southwestward over the Bay of Campeche 
later today, and this motion should continue through early 
Saturday. On the forecast track, the center of Karl should reach 
the coast of southern Mexico late tonight or early Saturday.

Maximum sustained winds are near 45 mph (75 km/h) with higher
gusts. Little change in strength is expected through this morning. 
Some slight weakening is possible later today 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 estimated from Air Force Reserve 
reconnaissance aircraft data is 1001 mb (29.56 inches).

and northern Chiapas and Oaxaca states in Mexico through Sunday
