DISCUSSION AND 48-HOUR OUTLOOK
------------------------------
At 100 AM CDT (0600 UTC), the center of Tropical Storm Franklin was
located near latitude 20.4 North, longitude 92.1 West.  Franklin is
moving toward the west-northwest near 10 mph (17 km/h).  A turn
toward the west is expected during the next several hours, with
Franklin maintaining that motion up until landfall.  On the forecast
track, the center of Franklin will move westward over the Bay of
Campeche overnight and on Wednesday and is forecast to cross the
coast of the Mexican state of Veracruz Wednesday night or early
Thursday.

Reports from an Air Force Reserve Hurricane Hunter aircraft indicate
that maximum sustained winds have increased to near 60 mph (95 km/h)
with higher gusts.  Additional strengthening is expected, and
Franklin is forecast to become a hurricane late Wednesday and
reach the coast of Mexico as a hurricane Wednesday night.

Tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 185 miles (295 km)
from the center.  A Mexican automated weather station at Cayo
Arenas, located north of the center, recently reported a wind gust
of 45 mph (73 km/h).

The latest minimum central pressure estimated from Hurricane
Hunter aircraft data is 994 mb (29.35 inches).  A Mexican automated
weather station at Cayo Arcas, located just southwest of the center,
recently reported a pressure of 998.7 mb (29.49 inches).


HAZARDS AFFECTING LAND
----------------------
RAINFALL:  Franklin is expected to produce total rainfall
accumulations of 4 to 8 inches, and isolated maximum amounts of 12
inches are possible across portions of the Yucatan Peninsula of
Mexico through tonight.  Rainfall totals of 4 to 8 inches with
isolated maximum amounts of 15 inches are possible across the
Mexican states of Tabasco, northern Veracruz, northern Puebla,
Tlaxcala, Hidalgo, Queretaro, and eastern San Louis Potosi in
eastern Mexico.  These rains may produce life-threatening flash
floods and mudslides.

WIND:  Hurricane conditions are expected to reach the coast within
the Hurricane Warning area by Wednesday night.  Winds are expected
to first reach tropical storm strength on Wednesday, making outside
preparations difficult or dangerous.  Preparations to protect life
and property should be rushed to completion.

Tropical storm conditions are expected across portions of the
Tropical Storm Warning area along the southern shore of the
Bay of Campeche through Wednesday night. Hurricane conditions are
possible within the Hurricane Watch area Wednesday night.  Tropical
storm conditions are expected within the Tropical Storm Warning area
in eastern Mexico by Wednesday evening.

STORM SURGE:  A dangerous storm surge will raise water levels by
as much as 2 to 4 feet above normal tide levels along the
immediate coast near and to the north of where the center
makes landfall in the Hurricane Warning area.  Near the coast, the
surge will be accompanied by large and destructive waves.
