DISCUSSION AND OUTLOOK
----------------------
At 200 PM PDT (2100 UTC), the center of Post-Tropical Cyclone
Genevieve was located near latitude 25.8 North, longitude 115.5
West. The post-tropical cyclone is moving toward the northwest near
12 mph (19 km/h) and this general motion with some reduction in
forward speed is expected over the next couple of days.

Recent satellite wind data indicate that the maximum sustained
winds have decreased to near 40 mph (65 km/h) with higher gusts.
Additional weakening is expected, and the post-tropical cyclone is
forecast to dissipate within a few days.

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

The estimated minimum central pressure is 1003 mb (29.62 inches).


HAZARDS AFFECTING LAND
----------------------
SURF:  Large swells from Genevieve that are affecting portions of
the west coast of the Baja California peninsula will gradually
subside through Saturday.  These swells are likely to cause
life-threatening surf and rip current conditions.  Please consult
products from your local weather office.
