DISCUSSION AND OUTLOOK
----------------------
At 1100 AM EDT (1500 UTC), the center of Tropical Storm Lisa was
located near latitude 15.5 North, longitude 77.3 West. Lisa is
moving toward the west near 14 mph, and a westward to west- 
northwestward motion is expected over the next few days.  On the 
forecast track, the center will pass south of Jamaica today, south 
of the Cayman Islands tomorrow, and approach Central America on 
Wednesday.

Maximum sustained winds remain near 40 mph (65 km/h) with higher
gusts. Slow strengthening is forecast during the next few days, and
Lisa could become a hurricane over the northwestern Caribbean Sea.

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

The minimum central pressure estimated from NOAA Hurricane Hunter
aircraft dropsonde data is 1003 mb (29.62 inches)


HAZARDS AFFECTING LAND
----------------------
WIND:  Tropical storm conditions are possible on Jamaica today.

RAINFALL: Through Thursday evening, Lisa is expected to produce
rainfall amounts of 1 inch, with local amounts to 2 inches across
portions of the Cayman Islands, northern Honduras, and eastern
Nicaragua. For Jamaica and Guatemala, rainfall amounts of 2 to 4
inches are expected, with localized totals of 6 inches. For
Belize, rainfall amounts of 3 to 5 inches are expected with
localized totals as high as 8 inches. This rainfall could lead to
flash flooding.

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