DISCUSSION AND OUTLOOK

At 1000 AM CDT (1500 UTC), the center of Tropical Storm Fernand was
located near latitude 24.2 North, longitude 97.3 West. Fernand is
moving toward the west-northwest near 8 mph (13 km/h). A motion
toward the west or west-northwest is expected today, and the center
of Fernand is forecast to cross the northeastern coast of Mexico
this afternoon or evening, and move farther inland tonight.

Maximum sustained winds are near 45 mph (75 km/h) with higher gusts.
Little change in strength is expected before the center moves
onshore.  Once inland, rapid weakening is expected, and Fernand
should dissipate on Thursday.

Tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 80 miles (130 km)
from the center.

The estimated minimum central pressure is 1002 mb (29.59 inches).

totals through Friday:

Northeast Mexico: Tamaulipas and Central/Southern Nuevo Leon: 6 to
12 inches with isolated 18 inches, highest along the immediate Gulf
Coast and in the Sierra Madre Oriental.  This rainfall may cause
life-threatening flash floods and mudslides.

Northern Nuevo Leon and Southern Coahuila: 3 to 6 inches.

South Texas and the Lower Texas Coast: 2 to 4 inches, isolated 6
inches.
