At 400 PM CDT (2100 UTC), the center of Tropical Storm Calvin was
located near latitude 15.5 North, longitude 95.5 West.  Calvin is
moving toward the west-northwest near 2 mph (4 km/h) and this
general motion is expected to continue through Tuesday.  On the
forecast track, the center will be near or over the coast tonight
or early Tuesday.

Maximum sustained winds have increased to near 40 mph (65 km/h) with
higher gusts. Little change in strength is expected until landfall,
and weakening will occur after the center moves inland.

Tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 60 miles (95 km)
from the center.

The estimated minimum central pressure is 1005 mb (29.68 inches).


HAZARDS AFFECTING LAND
----------------------
RAINFALL:  Calvin is expected to produce total rainfall
accumulations of 5 to 10 inches across the Mexican states of
Chiapas, Oaxaca, and Guerrero, with possible isolated maximum
amounts of 20 inches. More than 6 inches of rain have already fallen
in Oaxaca and Salina Cruz in the Mexican state of Oaxaca. Calvin is
also forecast to produce total rainfall accumulations of 4 to 6
inches in the Mexican states of Tabasco and Veracruz, as well as in
Guatemala. More than 5 inches of rain has fallen in the city of
