 DISCUSSION AND OUTLOOK ---------------------- At 1000 PM CDT (0300 UTC), the center of Tropical Depression Four-E was located near latitude 15.4 North, longitude 100.3 West. The depression is moving toward the north-northwest near 3 mph (6 km/h).  The system is expected to meander off the southwest coast of Mexico for the next couple of days, eventually drifting northward toward the coast over the weekend.
Maximum sustained winds are near 35 mph (55 km/h) with higher gusts. Some strengthening is forecast during the next day or two, and the system is expected to be a tropical storm when it approaches Mexico.
The estimated minimum central pressure is 1007 mb (29.74 inches).
 HAZARDS AFFECTING LAND ---------------------- RAINFALL:  The depression is forecast to produce 4 to 6 inches of rainfall along the Guerrero coast, including the city of Acapulco, with isolated higher amounts approaching 8 inches possible.  These rains could produce life-threatening flash floods and mud slides. Farther inland across the state of Guerrero, rainfall amounts of 1 to 2 inches with isolated amounts of 4 inches are forecast.
WIND:  Tropical storm conditions are expected within the warning area on Saturday.
SURF:  Swells generated by the depression are affecting portions of the coast of southern Mexico.  These swells are likely to cause life-threatening surf and rip current conditions.  Please consult products from your local weather office.
