 DISCUSSION AND OUTLOOK ---------------------- At 1000 AM CDT (1500 UTC), the center of Tropical Depression Four-E was located near latitude 15.8 North, longitude 99.7 West. The depression is moving toward the north-northeast near 3 mph (6 km/h) and a slow northeastward motion is expected to begin later today. On the forecast track, the center of the depression is expected to make landfall on Saturday within the warning area and move farther inland on Sunday.
Maximum sustained winds are near 35 mph (55 km/h) with higher gusts. The depression is forecast to become a tropical storm later today, quickly weaken after landfall on Saturday, and then dissipate on Sunday.
The estimated minimum central pressure is 1007 mb (29.74 inches).
 HAZARDS AFFECTING LAND ---------------------- RAINFALL:  The depression is forecast to produce 3 to 6 inches of rainfall along the Guerrero and Oaxaca coasts, including the city of Acapulco, with isolated higher amounts of 10 inches possible. These rains are likely to produce life-threatening flash floods and mud slides, especially in areas of higher terrain. Farther inland across the states of Guerrero and Oaxaca, 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 starting early 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.
