 DISCUSSION AND 48-HOUR OUTLOOK ------------------------------ At 100 AM CDT (0600 UTC), the center of Tropical Storm Max was located near latitude 16.5 North, longitude 100.9 West. Radar from Mexico indicate that Max is moving toward the east-northeast near 3 mph (6 km/h), and an east-northeastward to northeastward motion is expected to continue today.  On the forecast track, the center of Max will make landfall within the warning area later today.
Recent satellite data indicate that the maximum sustained winds are near 65 mph (100 km/h) with higher gusts.  Additional strengthening is possible, and Max could be near hurricane intensity at landfall.  After landfall, Max is forecast to rapidly weaken and dissipate by early Friday.
Tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 45 miles (75 km) from the center.
The estimated minimum central pressure is 1000 mb (29.53 inches).
 HAZARDS AFFECTING LAND ---------------------- RAINFALL:  Max is expected to produce total rainfall accumulations of 5 to 10 inches with maximum totals of 15 inches across southern portions of the Mexican state of Guerrero and western portions of the state of Oaxaca.  These rainfall amounts may produce life- threatening flash floods and mudslides.
WIND:  Tropical storm conditions are expected to begin soon within the warning area, with hurricane conditions possible later today.
