DISCUSSION AND OUTLOOK
----------------------
At 100 AM CDT (0600 UTC), the center of Tropical Storm Carlotta was
located near latitude 15.8 North, longitude 99.3 West.  Carlotta
has barely moved during the past few hours, but a slow northeastward
motion is expected to resume later today.  On the forecast track,
Carlotta is expected to make landfall by Saturday afternoon or
evening within the warning area.

Maximum sustained winds remain near 40 mph (65 km/h) with higher
gusts.  Little change in intensity is expected before landfall. The
small cyclone is forecast to quickly dissipate over the high terrain
of Mexico by Saturday night or Sunday morning.

Tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 60 miles (95 km)
from the center.

The estimated minimum central pressure is 1006 mb (29.71 inches).


HAZARDS AFFECTING LAND
----------------------
RAINFALL:  Carlotta is forecast to produce 3 to 6 inches of rainfall
along the Guerrero and Oaxaca coasts, including the city of
Acapulco, with isolated higher amounts of 10 inches possible.  These
rains are likely to produce life-threatening flash floods and
mudslides, especially in areas of higher terrain.  Farther inland
across the states of Guerrero and Oaxaca, rainfall amounts of 1 to 2
inches with isolated amounts of 4 inches are forecast.

WIND:  Tropical storm conditions are expected within the warning
area overnight and tomorrow.

SURF:  Swells generated by Carlotta are affecting portions of
the coast of southern Mexico.  These swells are likely to cause
life-threatening surf and rip current conditions.  Please consult
products from your local weather office.
