IT COULD BE A LITTLE FASTER...AND HARVEY IS FORECAST TO SLOW DOWN

SOUTH-CENTRAL MEXICO DURING THE DAY.  

CLUSTERS OF DEEP CONVECTION ARE SCATTERED ACROSS PARTS OF SOUTHERN

THIS ADVISORY.  HOWEVER...HARVEY SHOULD WEAKEN NOW THAT IT IS OVER
LAND...AND IT COULD ULTIMATELY DISSIPATE LATER TODAY OR TONIGHT
OVER THE SIERRA MADRE MOUNTAINS.

HEAVY RAINFALL...WITH THE POSSIBILITY OF FLASH FLOODING AND
MUDSLIDES...WILL CONTINUE TO AFFECT PORTIONS OF SOUTHERN MEXICO FOR
