DISCUSSION AND OUTLOOK
----------------------
At 400 PM CDT (2100 UTC), the center of Tropical Storm Cristobal was
located near latitude 18.3 North, longitude 91.8 West.  Cristobal is
moving toward the southeast near 3 mph (6 km/h), and a turn toward 
the east is expected by tonight.  A turn toward the north-northeast 
and north is expected on Thursday and Friday.  On the forecast 
track, the center will move over the land mass of eastern Mexico 
through Thursday.  The center is forecast to move back over the 
southern Gulf of Mexico by Friday, and over the central Gulf of 
Mexico on Saturday. 

Maximum sustained winds are near 50 mph (85 km/h) with higher gusts.
Slow weakening will occur while the cyclone moves over land, and 
Cristobal will likely become a tropical depression by Thursday 
evening.  Some re-strengthening is expected to begin on Friday.
 
Tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 60 miles (95 km)
from the center.
 
The estimated minimum central pressure is 995 mb (29.39 inches).
