DISCUSSION AND OUTLOOK
----------------------
At 1000 AM CDT (1500 UTC), the center of Tropical Storm Karl was 
located near latitude 19.4 North, longitude 92.7 West. Karl is 
moving toward the south-southeast near 7 mph (11 km/h). A southward 
to south-southwestward motion is expected later today and tonight 
over the Bay of Campeche. On the forecast track, the center of Karl 
should reach the coast of southern Mexico late tonight or early 
Saturday.

Data from an Air Force Reserve Hurricane Hunter aircraft indicate 
that maximum sustained winds are near 45 mph (75 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.

The estimated minimum central pressure is 1000 mb (29.53 inches) 
based on dropsonde data from the aircraft.


HAZARDS AFFECTING LAND

Key messages for Karl can be found in the Tropical Cyclone
Discussion under AWIPS header MIATCDAT4 and WMO header
WTNT44 KNHC and on the web at hurricanes.gov/MIATCDAT4.shtml

RAINFALL:  Karl is expected to produce 2 to 5 inches of rain, with 
local maxima up to 10 inches, across portions of Veracruz, Tabasco, 
and northern Chiapas and Oaxaca states in Mexico through Sunday 
morning. These rains could produce flash flooding, along with 
mudslides, in higher terrain.

WIND:  Tropical storm conditions are expected to begin within
portions of the tropical storm warning area by this afternoon or
this evening.

SURF:  Swells generated by Karl are expected to affect the Mexican
coastline for the next couple of days. These swells are likely to
cause life-threatening surf and rip current conditions. Please
consult products from your local weather office.
