DISCUSSION AND OUTLOOK

----------------------

wind.pngAt 1000 AM CDT (1500 UTC), the center of Tropical Storm Karl was located near latitude 19.4 North, longitude 92.7 West. Karl is

moving toward the south-southeast near 7 mph (11 km/h). A southward to south-southwestward motion is expected later today and tonight 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 are near 45 mph (75 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.

The estimated minimum central pressure is 1000 mb (29.53 inches) based on dropsonde data from the aircraft.

HAZARDS AFFECTING LAND

----------------------

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 to begin within portions of the tropical storm warning area by this afternoon or this 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 consult products from your local weather office.
