DISCUSSION AND OUTLOOK
At 400 AM CDT (0900 UTC), the center of Tropical Storm Karl was
located near latitude 20.2 North, longitude 92.4 West. Karl is
moving toward the southeast near 6 mph (9 km/h), and this general
motion should continue through this morning. Karl is expected to
turn southward or south-southwestward over the Bay of Campeche
later today, and this motion should continue through early
Saturday. On the forecast track, the center of Karl should reach
the coast of southern Mexico late tonight or early Saturday.
Maximum sustained winds have decreased to near 40 mph (65 km/h)
with higher gusts. Little change in strength is expected before the
center of Karl reaches the coast. Steady weakening is expected
after the storm crosses the coastline, and the system is forecast
to dissipate over southern Mexico by Saturday night.
Tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 60 miles (95 km)
from the center. A Mexican Navy station at Cayo Arcas recently
reported sustained winds of 34 mph (55 km/h) and a wind gust of
54 mph (86 km/h).
The estimated minimum central pressure is 1001 mb (29.56 inches).
