DISCUSSION AND OUTLOOK

At 100 PM CDT (1800 UTC), the center of Tropical Storm Karl was
located near latitude 22.0 North, longitude 94.5 West. Karl is
moving toward the north near 3 mph (6 km/h) and this motion is
expected to continue through today.  A slow motion to the south and
south-southeast is expected to begin this evening and a faster
generally southward motion is forecast by Thursday morning.  On the
forecast track, Karl will be approaching the coast of Mexico within
the watch area by Friday.

Data from an Air Force Reserve Hurricane Hunter aircraft support an 
increase to near 60 mph (95 km/h) with higher gusts. Little change 
in strength is forecast overnight followed by gradual weakening 
until landfall.

Tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 115 miles (185 km)
from the center.

The estimated minimum central pressure is 1002 mb (29.59 inches).
