At 700 AM CDT (1200 UTC), the center of Tropical Storm Fernand was
located near latitude 23.5 North, longitude 97.2 West. Fernand is
moving toward the west near 6 mph (9 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 later today or
this evening.

Maximum sustained winds are near 50 mph (85 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 105 miles (165 km)
from the center.

The estimated minimum central pressure is 1000 mb (29.53 inches).

the warning area today.  Squalls with gusts to tropical storm force
are likely north of the warning area along portions of the lower
Texas coast.

totals through Friday:

Northeast Mexico: Tamaulipas and Central/Southern Nuevo Leon: 6 to
12 inches with isolated 18 inches, highest along the immediate Gulf
