Maximum sustained winds have decreased to near 70 mph (110 km/h) with higher gusts.  Rapid weakening is forecast, and Max is expected to weaken to a tropical depression later tonight and dissipate over southern Mexico on Friday.
Tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 45 miles (75 km) from the center.
The estimated minimum central pressure is 992 mb (29.29 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 will continue over portions of the warning area through late tonight.
STORM SURGE:  A dangerous storm surge is expected to produce significant coastal flooding in areas of onshore flow to the southeast of the center of Max.  Near the coast, the surge will be accompanied by large and destructive waves.
