DISCUSSION AND 48-HOUR OUTLOOK
------------------------------
At 400 AM CDT (0900 UTC), the center of Tropical Storm Pilar was
located near latitude 19.1 North, longitude 105.6 West. Pilar is
moving toward the north-northwest near 5 mph (7 km/h).  A
north-northwest to northwest track is expected for the next couple
of days.  On the forecast track, the center of Pilar will move near
or just west of the coast of Jalisco today and early Monday.

Maximum sustained winds have increased to near 45 mph (75 km/h)
with higher gusts.  Some additional strengthening is possible
before Pilar nears the coast of Mexico later today and Monday.

Tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 80 miles (130 km)
from the center.  A Mexican automated station at Chamelacuixmala in
the state of Jalisco recently reported sustained winds of 36 mph
(58 km/h) and a wind gust of 78 mph (125 km/h) at an elevation of
276 ft (84 m).

The estimated minimum central pressure is 1002 mb (29.59 inches).


HAZARDS AFFECTING LAND

to 7 inches with possible isolated maximum amounts of 15 inches over
the western portions of the Mexican states of Michoacan, Colima,
Jalisco, and Nayarit, and southern Sinaloa through Monday night.
This rainfall could cause life-threatening flash floods and
mudslides.

southern portion of the warning area this morning, and gradually
spread northward along the Mexican coast through Monday.
