 DISCUSSION AND OUTLOOK ---------------------- At 100 PM CDT (1800 UTC), the center of Tropical Depression Carlotta was estimated to be near near latitude 17.2 North, longitude 101.6 West.  Carlotta is moving toward the northwest near 7 mph (11 km/h) and this general motion is expected to continue through Monday.  On the forecast track, the small core of Carlotta or its remnant should move inland over southern Mexico on Monday.
Maximum sustained winds have decreased to near 35 mph (55 km/h) with higher gusts.  Carlotta could dissipate later today.
The estimated minimum central pressure is 1007 mb (29.74 inches).
 HAZARDS AFFECTING LAND ---------------------- RAINFALL:  Carlotta is forecast to produce 3 to 6 inches of rainfall along the Guerrero and Michoacan 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.  Elsewhere across the states of Guerrero and Michoacan, rainfall amounts of 1 to 2 inches with isolated amounts of 4 inches are forecast.
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.
