DISCUSSION AND OUTLOOK
----------------------
At 400 PM CDT (2100 UTC), the center of Tropical Storm Cristobal was 
located near latitude 19.1 North, longitude 92.5 West.  Cristobal is 
moving toward the south near 3 mph (6 km/h), and a turn toward the 
southeast and east is expected tonight and Wednesday, followed by a 
turn toward the north-northeast and north on Thursday night and 
Friday.  On the forecast track, the center will cross the southern 
Bay of Campeche coast on Wednesday and move inland over eastern 
Mexico Wednesday night and Thursday, and move back over the Bay of 
Campeche Thursday night and Friday. 
 
Maximum sustained winds are near 40 mph (65 km/h) with higher gusts.
Some increase in strength is possible until the center crosses the 
coast.  Gradual weakening is forecast while the center remains 
inland, but restrengthening is expected after Cristobal moves back 
over water Thursday night and Friday. 

Tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 85 miles (140 km)
from the center.
 
The estimated minimum central pressure is 1004 mb (29.65 inches).
