 DISCUSSION AND OUTLOOK ---------------------- At 1000 PM CDT (0300 UTC), the center of Tropical Depression Carlotta was located near latitude 17.2 North, longitude 102.2 West. The depression is moving toward the west-northwest near 5 mph (7 km/h), and this general motion is expected to continue through Monday. On the forecast track, the center will be moving parallel to but just offshore of the coast of Mexico through Monday.
Maximum sustained winds remain near 30 mph (45 km/h) with higher gusts. Carlotta is expected to degenerate into a remnant low by Monday morning.
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, Michoacan and Colima coasts, 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.
