DISCUSSION AND OUTLOOK
----------------------
At 400 AM CDT (0900 UTC), the center of Tropical Storm Cristobal was 
located by radar data from Mexico near latitude 18.9 North, 
longitude 92.0 West. Cristobal is moving toward the southeast near 
3 mph (6 km/h), and this general motion is expected to continue 
this morning, followed by turn toward the east this afternoon. A 
motion toward the north-northeast and north is expected on Thursday 
and Friday. On the forecast track, the center will cross the 
southern Bay of Campeche coast later today and move inland over 
eastern Mexico tonight and Thursday. The center is forecast to move 
back over the Bay of Campeche Thursday night and Friday.
 
Maximum sustained winds are near 60 mph (95 km/h) with higher gusts. 
Some slight 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 60 miles (95 km)
from the center.
 
The estimated minimum central pressure based on nearby surface
observations is 994 mb (29.35 inches).
