Tropical Storm Franklin Discussion Number  15
NWS National Hurricane Center Miami FL       AL072017
400 AM CDT Thu Aug 10 2017

The center of Franklin made landfall on the coast of eastern Mexico
near 0500 UTC with maximum sustained winds near 75 kt based on Air
Force Reserve Hurricane Hunter data.  The cyclone is now weakening
over land, and the initial intensity is reduced to a possibly
generous 60 kt.  Rapid weakening is expected as the low-level
center moves into the mountains of Mexico over the next few hours,
with the low-level circulation expected to dissipate within 24 h.
The mid-level remnants of Franklin should reach the eastern Pacific
in 24-36 h, and re-development is possible at that time.

The initial motion is 260/13.  A strong mid- to upper-level high
pressure system should steer Franklin or its remnants generally
westward across Mexico and over the Pacific during the next day or
so.

Franklin will continue to bring torrential rains with flash flooding
and mud slides along its path, and these conditions could persist
even after the low-level center dissipates.
