DISCUSSION AND OUTLOOK
----------------------
At 1000 PM CDT (0300 UTC), the center of Tropical Storm Cristobal
was located near latitude 19.1 North, longitude 92.3 West. Cristobal
is moving toward the south near 1 mph (2 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
and Friday.  On the forecast track, the center will cross the
southern Bay of Campeche coast later tonight or on Wednesday and 
move inland over eastern Mexico Wednesday night and Thursday.  The 
center is forecast to move back over the Bay of Campeche Thursday 
night and Friday.
 
Data from an Air Force Reserve Hurricane Hunter aircraft indicate 
that the maximum sustained winds have increased to near 50 mph 
(85 km/h) with higher gusts.  Some additional 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 70 miles (110 km)
from the center.  A wind gust of 39 mph (63 km/h) was recently 
reported at an automated observing site in Ciudad del Carmen.
 
The latest minimum central pressure reported by reconnaissance 
aircraft is 996 mb (29.42 inches).
