NWS TPC/NATIONAL HURRICANE CENTER MIAMI FL   EP052008
200 AM PDT MON JUL 07 2008
 
THE ILL-DEFINED CENTER OF THE TROPICAL DEPRESSION MADE LANDFALL
AROUND 02Z JUST WEST OF LAZARO CARDENAS MEXICO.  SSMI IMAGES AT
2325Z AND 0122Z AIDED IN DETERMINING THE TRACK OF THE SYSTEM AS
GEOSTATIONARY SATELLITE IMAGERY AND SYNOPTIC OBSERVATIONS WERE
SOMEWHAT AMBIGUOUS.  A 0042Z QUIKSCAT PASS SUGGESTED THAT MAXIMUM
WINDS OF 30 KT WERE PRESENT NEAR THE TIME OF LANDFALL.

THE DEPRESSION IS DISSIPATING OVER THE HIGH TERRAIN OF SOUTHWESTERN
MEXICO. THE REMNANT LOW SHOULD DISSIPATE WITHIN A DAY...IF NOT
SOONER. DESPITE LANDFALL AND ANTICIPATED DISSIPATION...THE REMNANTS
OF THE DEPRESSION ARE EXPECTED TO PRODUCE VERY HEAVY RAIN AND THE
POTENTIAL EXISTS FOR FLASH FLOODS AND MUD SLIDES OVER THE
MOUNTAINOUS TERRAIN OF MEXICO. 

THIS IS THE LAST ADVISORY OF TROPICAL DEPRESSION FIVE-E ISSUED BY
THE NATIONAL HURRICANE CENTER.
