DISCUSSION AND OUTLOOK
----------------------
At 800 AM PDT (1500 UTC), the center of Post-Tropical Cyclone Kevin
was located near latitude 23.2 North, longitude 120.6 West.  Kevin 
is moving toward the west-northwest near 14 mph (22 km/h), and this 
motion is expected to continue through early Friday.  A turn toward 
the northwest is expected later on Friday.

Maximum sustained winds are near 35 mph (55 km/h) with higher gusts.

remnant low is expected to dissipate by Sunday.

The estimated minimum central pressure is 1007 mb (29.74 inches).


HAZARDS AFFECTING LAND
----------------------
SURF:  Swells generated by Kevin are reaching the west coast of
Baja California Sur but will gradually subside today.  However,
another round of swells is expected to reach southern portions of
Baja California Sur on Friday from Linda.  These swells are likely
to cause life-threatening surf and rip current conditions. Please
consult products from your local weather office.
