 WATCHES AND WARNINGS -------------------- There are no coastal watches or warnings in effect.
 DISCUSSION AND OUTLOOK ---------------------- At 200 PM PDT (2100 UTC), the center of Tropical Storm Aletta was located near latitude 16.6 North, longitude 115.7 West.  Aletta is moving toward the west near 7 mph (11 km/h), and this general motion is expected to continue through late Tuesday.
Maximum sustained winds are near 45 mph (75 km/h) with higher gusts. Gradual weakening is forecast, and Aletta should degenerate into a remnant low within the next day or so.
Tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 105 miles (165 km) from the center. During the past few hours, a Mexican Navy automated weather station on Clarion Island reported a sustained wind of 38 mph (61 km/h) and a gust to 55 mph (88 km/h).
The estimated minimum central pressure is 1002 mb (29.59 inches).
 HAZARDS AFFECTING LAND ---------------------- SURF:  Swells generated by Aletta will affect portions of the coast of west-central mainland Mexico and the west coast of Baja California Sur through the today.  Swells are expected to build even higher along these areas early next week due to Tropical Storm Bud to the east of Aletta.  These swells are likely to cause life-threatening surf and rip current conditions. Please consult products from your local weather office.
 NEXT ADVISORY ------------- Next complete advisory at 800 PM PDT.
