DISCUSSION AND OUTLOOK
At 300 PM MDT (2100 UTC), the center of Tropical Storm Olaf was
located near latitude 24.6 North, longitude 112.7 West. Olaf is
moving toward the west-northwest near 10 mph (17 km/h). A turn
toward the west is expected tonight and Saturday, followed by a
southwestward motion beginning on Saturday night and continuing into
early next week. On the forecast track, the center of Olaf will
move away from the southwestern coast of Baja California Sur
Maximum sustained winds have decreased to near 45 mph (75 km/h) with
higher gusts. Additional weakening is expected during the next
couple of days, and Olaf is forecast to degenerate to a
post-tropical remnant low on Saturday.
Tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 45 miles (75 km)
from the center. A weather station at Puerto Cortes reported a
wind gust of 38 mph (61 km/h) during the past couple of hours.
The estimated minimum central pressure is 1001 mb (29.56 inches).
HAZARDS AFFECTING LAND
Key messages for Olaf can be found in the Tropical Cyclone
Discussion under AWIPS header MIATCDEP5 and WMO header WTPZ45 KNHC
and on the web at hurricanes.gov/graphics_ep5.shtml?key_messages
WIND: Tropical storm conditions are occurring within portions of
the tropical storm warning area, but are expected to subside during
the next several hours.
RAINFALL: Olaf is expected to produce an additional 2 to 4 inches
of rain with isolated maximum amounts of 6 inches across portions of
southern Baja California Sur through tonight. This rainfall may
trigger life-threatening flash flooding and mudslides.
STORM SURGE: Storm surge is expected to produce coastal flooding in
regions of onshore winds within the warning area. Near the coast,
the surge will be accompanied by large waves.
SURF: Swells generated by Olaf will affect portions of the coasts
of Nayarit and Sinaloa through this evening, and portions of the
west coast of Baja California Sur through Saturday. These swells
are likely to cause life-threatening surf and rip current
conditions. Please consult products from your local weather office.
