somewhere within the watch area within 48 hours.

DISCUSSION AND 48-HOUR OUTLOOK
At 1000 AM CDT (1500 UTC), the center of Tropical Storm Carlos was
located near latitude 15.9 North, longitude 100.4 West. Carlos is
moving toward the northwest near 2 mph (4 km/h) and this general
motion is expected to continue through Monday. A turn toward the
west-northwest with some increase in forward speed is expected over
the next couple of days.
Maximum sustained winds have decreased to near 70 mph (110 km/h)
with higher gusts. However, some restrengthening is forecast during
the next 48 hours, and Carlos is expected to become a hurricane
again by Monday.
Tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 70 miles (110 km)
from the center.
The estimated minimum central pressure is 986 mb (29.12 inches).
HAZARDS AFFECTING LAND
WIND: Tropical storm conditions are expected within the tropical
storm warning area today, and Acapulco recently reported a gust to
43 mph (69 km/h). Hurricane conditions are expected to begin within
the hurricane warning area on Monday. Hurricane conditions are
possible within the hurricane watch area Monday night or early
RAINFALL: Carlos is expected to produce rains in the Mexican states
of Oaxaca, Guerrero, Michoacan, Colima and Jalisco, with rainfall
accumulations of 6 to 10 inches possible through Tuesday with
maximum totals of 15 inches possible. These rains may produce
life-threatening flash floods and mud slides, especially in areas of
SURF: Swells associated with Carlos will affect the coasts of
southern and southwestern Mexico during the next few days. These
swells could cause life-threatening surf and rip currents. Please
consult products from your local weather office.
