DATA FROM A NOAA RECONNAISSANCE PLANE...CURRENTLY IN A TROPICAL
CYCLONE GENESIS MISSION IN THE BAY OF CAMPECHE...INDICATE THAT THE

INNER CORE YET. INITIAL INTENSITY IS ESTIMATED AT 30 KNOTS AND WITH
LOW SHEAR AND WARM WATERS ALONG THE PATH OF THE CYCLONE...IT IS
FORECAST THAT THE DEPRESSION WILL REACH THE COAST OF MEXICO AS A

SOUTH OF A PERSISTENT DEEP LAYER MEAN RIDGE. THIS MOTION IS FORECAST
TO PERSIST DURING THE NEXT 24 TO 48 HOURS. BY THEN...THE CYCLONE
