DISCUSSION AND OUTLOOK
----------------------
At 900 AM MDT (1500 UTC), the center of Tropical Storm Orlene was
located near latitude 16.1 North, longitude 107.1 West. Orlene is
moving toward the northwest near 5 mph (7 km/h). A turn toward the
north is expected by tonight along with a slight increase in
forward speed.  Orlene is then forecast to turn toward the
north-northeast by Saturday or Saturday night.

Maximum sustained winds are near 60 mph (95 km/h) with higher gusts.
Steady to rapid strengthening is expected during the next couple 
of days, and Orlene is forecast to become a hurricane tonight or
Saturday.

Orlene is a small tropical cyclone. Tropical-storm-force winds 
extend outward up to 35 miles (55 km) from the center.

The estimated minimum central pressure is 998 mb (29.47 inches).


HAZARDS AFFECTING LAND
----------------------
SURF:  Large swells generated by Orlene will affect the coast of
southwestern Mexico, and the extreme southern portion of the Baja
California peninsula by this weekend. These swells are likely to
cause life-threatening surf and rip current conditions, as well as 
coastal flooding. Please consult products from your local weather 
office.
