located over southern Mexico near latitude 17.8 North, longitude

the east and northeast is expected later today, and a subsequent
northward motion should occur through Saturday.  On the forecast
track, the center will move over the land mass of eastern Mexico
today and tonight.  The center is forecast to move back over the
southern Gulf of Mexico Friday or Friday night, over the central
Gulf of Mexico on Saturday, and approach the northern Gulf of Mexico
coast Sunday and Sunday night.
 
Maximum sustained winds are near 40 mph (65 km/h) with higher
gusts.  Cristobal is expected to weaken to a depression later this
morning.  Re-intensification is expected to begin on Friday.
 
Tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 60 miles (95 km)
from the center, primarily over water to the northwest of the
