 DISCUSSION AND 48-HOUR OUTLOOK ------------------------------ At 700 AM CDT (1200 UTC), the center of Tropical Storm Selma was located near latitude 10.8 North, longitude 89.6 West.  Selma is moving toward the northwest near 5 mph (7 km/h) and the cyclone is expected to turn toward the north by early Saturday.  On the forecast track, the center of Selma will approach the coast of El Salvador on Saturday.
Maximum sustained winds are near 40 mph (65 km/h) with higher gusts. Some increase in strength is forecast over the next day or so before Selma makes landfall.
Tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 45 miles (75 km) from the center.
The estimated minimum central pressure is 1005 mb (29.68 inches).
 HAZARDS AFFECTING LAND ---------------------- RAINFALL:  Selma is expected to produce total rain accumulations of 3 to 6 inches over El Salvador, southern Guatemala, southern Honduras and far western Nicaragua over the next couple of days. Isolated maximum amounts of 10 inches are possible in El Salvador and southern Guatemala.  This rainfall could cause life-threatening flash floods and mudslides.
WIND:  Tropical storm conditions are expected to first reach the coast within the warning area by early Saturday, making outside preparations difficult or dangerous.
SURF:  Swells generated by Selma are forecast to affect portions of the coasts of Nicaragua, Honduras, El Salvador and Guatemala later today.  These swells are likely to cause life-threatening surf and rip current conditions.  Please consult products from your local weather office.
