 DISCUSSION AND 48-HOUR OUTLOOK ------------------------------ At 400 AM CDT (0900 UTC), the center of Tropical Storm Max was located by satellite and radar from Mexico near latitude 16.6 North, longitude 100.5 West. Max is moving toward the east-northeast near 7 mph (11 km/h), and this general motion is expected to continue today. On the forecast track, the core of Max will make landfall within the warning area later today.
Maximum sustained winds are near 65 mph (100 km/h) with higher gusts.  Max could become a little stronger as it approaches the coast, but rapid weakening is anticipated one it moves inland.
Max is a small cyclone and tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 45 miles (75 km) from the center.
The estimated minimum central pressure is 998 mb (29.47 inches).
 HAZARDS AFFECTING LAND ---------------------- RAINFALL:  Max is expected to produce total rainfall accumulations of 5 to 10 inches in the Mexican state of Guerrero and western portions of the state of Oaxaca. Maximum amounts locally in excess of 20 inches are possible over coastal areas of Guerrero. These torrential rains 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.
