DISCUSSION AND OUTLOOK

located near latitude 15.1 North, longitude 102.1 West.  Lorena is
moving toward the northwest near 15 mph (24 km/h).  A slower
northwestward motion is expected during the next couple of days.
Lorena is forecast to move near or over the southwestern coast
of Mexico late Wednesday or early Thursday.

Maximum sustained winds are near 50 mph (85 km/h) with higher gusts.
Gradual strengthening is forecast during the next couple of days as
Lorena approaches the coast of Mexico.

Tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 70 miles (110 km)
from the center.

The estimated minimum central pressure is 1002 mb (29.59 inches).


HAZARDS AFFECTING LAND
----------------------
WIND:  Tropical storm conditions are expected within the southern
portion of the watch area by late Wednesday or early Thursday, and
then are expected to spread northward along the coast through late
Thursday.

RAINFALL:  Lorena is expected to produce total rainfall
accumulations of 3 to 6 inches with maximum amounts of 10 inches
along the coastal sections of the Mexican states of Guerrero,
Michoacan, Colima and Jalisco.  This rainfall may produce life-
threatening flash floods and mudslides.

SURF:  Swells generated by Lorena will affect portions of the
southwest coast of Mexico during the next few days.  These swells
are likely to cause life-threatening surf and rip current
conditions. Please consult products from your local weather office.
