DISCUSSION AND 48-HOUR OUTLOOK
At 400 PM CDT (2100 UTC), the center of Hurricane Marty was located
near latitude 16.7 North, longitude 102.1 West. Marty is moving
toward the northeast near 6 mph (9 km/h). A decrease in forward
speed is expected tonight, with a turn to the north forecast
on Wednesday. On the forecast track, the center of Marty is
expected to be near but just offshore of the southwestern coast of
Mexico Tuesday through Wednesday. However, only a small deviation
to the right of the forecast track would bring the center onshore.
Maximum sustained winds have increased to near 80 mph (130 km/h)
with higher gusts. Some weakening is forecast to begin on Tuesday,
but Marty is expected to be near hurricane strength while it
approaches the coast.
Hurricane-force winds extend outward up to 15 miles (30 km) from the
center and tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 90 miles
The estimated minimum central pressure from Air Force Reserve
Hurricane Hunter aircraft data is 986 mb (29.12 inches).

STORM SURGE: A dangerous storm surge is expected to produce
significant coastal flooding in areas of onshore flow. The surge
