 DISCUSSION AND 48-HOUR OUTLOOK ------------------------------ At 1000 AM CDT (1500 UTC), the eye of Hurricane Max was located near latitude 16.3 North, longitude 99.9 West.  Max is moving toward the east near 7 mph (11 km/h).  An eastward or east-northeastward motion at a similar forward speed is expected through Friday.  On the forecast track, the center of Max is forecast to cross the coast of southern Mexico in the hurricane warning area this evening or tonight.
Maximum sustained winds are near 80 mph (130 km/h) with higher gusts.  Some strengthening is expected today before Max reaches the coast this evening or tonight.  Weakening is forecast once Max makes landfall, and it is expected to dissipate over the mountains of southern Mexico by late Friday.
Hurricane-force winds extend outward up to 10 miles (20 km) from the center, and tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 45 miles (75 km).
The estimated minimum central pressure is 988 mb (29.18 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 likely occurring within portions of the hurricane warning area, and hurricane conditions should begin in that area later today.  Tropical storm conditions are expected within the tropical storm warning area by this evening, with hurricane conditions possible tonight.
STORM SURGE:  A dangerous storm surge is expected to produce significant coastal flooding near and to the east of where the center makes landfall.  Near the coast, the surge will be accompanied by large and destructive waves.
