DISCUSSION AND OUTLOOK
----------------------
At 800 AM EDT (1200 UTC), the center of Tropical Storm Lisa was
located near latitude 16.1 North, longitude 81.1 West. Lisa is
moving toward the west near 14 mph (22 km/h).  This general motion
with some decrease in forward speed is forecast during the next
couple of days. On the forecast track, the center of Lisa will pass
south of the Cayman Islands today, move near or over the Bay Islands
of Honduras early Wednesday, and approach Belize later on Wednesday.

Maximum sustained winds remain near 45 mph (75 km/h) with higher
gusts. Strengthening is expected, and Lisa is forecast to become a
hurricane by early Wednesday over the northwestern Caribbean Sea.

Tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 105 miles (165 km)
from the center.

The estimated minimum central pressure is 1004 mb (29.65 inches).


HAZARDS AFFECTING LAND
----------------------
WIND: Hurricane conditions are possible in the Bay Islands of
Honduras beginning early Wednesday and are possible along the coast
of Belize Wednesday afternoon. Tropical storm conditions are
expected along the northern coast of Honduras within the Tropical
Storm Warning area tonight through Wednesday.  Tropical storm
conditions are possible in the Tropical Storm Watch area in Mexico
and Guatemala beginning Wednesday afternoon.

RAINFALL: Through Thursday evening, Lisa is expected to produce 
rainfall amounts of:

* 3 to 5 inches with local amounts to 8 inches across portions
of Belize and the Bay Islands of Honduras.
* 2 to 4 inches with local amounts to 6 inches across portions
of Jamaica, eastern Yucatan Peninsula, Northern Honduras, and
Guatemala.
* 1 inch with local amounts to 2 inches across portions of the
Cayman Islands and eastern Nicaragua.

This rainfall could produce flash floods from northern Honduras
northward to the eastern Yucatan peninsula.

STORM SURGE:  A storm surge could raise water levels by as much as 3
to 5 feet above normal tide levels along the immediate coast of
Belize in areas of onshore winds and 1 to 3 feet for the Bay Islands
of Honduras. Near the coast, the surge will be accompanied by large
and damaging waves.

SURF:  Swells generated by Lisa are expected to affect Jamaica and
the Cayman Islands during the next day or so, and will begin to
affect Central America later today. These swells could cause
life-threatening surf and rip current conditions. Please consult
products from your local weather office.
