DISCUSSION AND OUTLOOK
----------------------
At 700 AM CDT (1200 UTC), the center of Tropical Storm Karl was 
located near latitude 19.9 North, longitude 92.3 West. Karl is 
moving toward the southeast near 6 mph (9 km/h). 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 40 mph (65 km/h) with higher gusts. 
Little change in strength is expected 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 60 miles (95 km)
from the center. A Mexican Navy station at Cayo Arcas recently
reported sustained winds of 31 mph (50 km/h) and a wind gust of 40
mph (64 km/h).

The estimated minimum central pressure is 1001 mb (29.56 inches).
