 DISCUSSION AND OUTLOOK ---------------------- At 1000 PM CDT (0300 UTC), the center of Tropical Storm Carlotta was located near latitude 15.8 North, longitude 99.2 West.  Carlotta is now drifting toward the southeast, but a slow northeastward motion is expected to resume Saturday morning.  On the forecast track, Carlotta is expected to make landfall by Saturday afternoon within the warning area.
Maximum sustained winds remain near 40 mph (65 km/h) with higher gusts.  Little change in wind speed is expected before landfall. The small cyclone is forecast to quickly dissipate over the high terrain of Mexico by Saturday night.
Tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 60 miles (95 km) from the center.
The estimated minimum central pressure is 1006 mb (29.71 inches).
 HAZARDS AFFECTING LAND ---------------------- RAINFALL:  Carlotta 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 mudslides, 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 overnight and tomorrow.
SURF:  Swells generated by Carlotta 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.
