DISCUSSION AND 48-HOUR OUTLOOK
------------------------------
At 100 AM CDT (0600 UTC), the center of Tropical Storm Franklin was
located by the Belize City Doppler weather radar to be near latitude
19.1 North, longitude 88.0 West. Franklin is moving toward the
west-northwest near 14 mph (22 km/h).  A west-northwestward to
westward motion is expected during the next couple of days.  On the
forecast track, the center of Franklin will move across the Yucatan
peninsula through today, and emerge over the Bay of Campeche
tonight.  Franklin will then continue westward across the Bay of
Campeche on Wednesday.

Maximum sustained winds are near 60 mph (95 km/h) with higher
gusts. Weakening is expected while Franklin moves across the Yucatan
peninsula today.  Restrengthening is forecast to begin tonight and
Wednesday while Franklin moves over the Bay of Campeche.

Tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 140 miles (220 km)
from the center.

The estimated minimum central pressure is 996 mb (29.41 inches).


HAZARDS AFFECTING LAND
----------------------
RAINFALL:  Rainfall amounts of 3 to 6 inches, with isolated amounts
of around 12 inches, are possible across the Yucatan peninsula of
Mexico and Belize through Wednesday, with the highest amounts over
the Mexican state of Quintana Roo.  These rains could produce
life-threatening flash floods.

WIND:  Tropical storm conditions are likely occurring over portions
of the east coast of the Yucatan peninsula and should spread
westward across the remainder of the warning area today.  Hurricane
or tropical storm conditions are possible within the hurricane watch
area by late Wednesday.  Tropical storm conditions are possible
within the tropical storm watch area tonight and Wednesday.

STORM SURGE:  A dangerous storm surge will raise water levels by
as much as 2 feet above normal tide levels along the east coast of
the Yucatan peninsula early this morning.  The surge will be
accompanied by large and destructive waves. Water levels are
expected to diminish after sunrise.
