DISCUSSION AND OUTLOOK
----------------------
At 100 PM CDT (1800 UTC), the center of Tropical Storm Karl was 
located near latitude 19.5 North, longitude 92.8 West. Karl is 
moving toward the south near 6 mph (9 km/h). A southward or
south-southwestward motion is expected tonight and early Saturday 
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 have decreased to 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 couple of hours ago, the Ciudad del Carmen 
International Airport reported a sustained wind of 31 mph (50 km/h) 
and a wind gust to 43 mph (69 km/h).

The estimated minimum central pressure is 1003 mb (29.62 inches)
based on dropsonde data from the aircraft.

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 within portions of 
the tropical storm warning area by this afternoon or 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
