 WATCHES AND WARNINGS -------------------- CHANGES WITH THIS ADVISORY:
The government of Mexico has discontinued the tropical storm warning and tropical storm watch for southwestern Mexico.
SUMMARY OF WATCHES AND WARNINGS IN EFFECT:
There are no coastal watches or warnings in effect.
 DISCUSSION AND OUTLOOK ---------------------- At 400 PM CDT (2100 UTC), the center of Tropical Depression Tara was located near latitude 19.0 North, longitude 105.0 West. The depression is moving toward the northwest near 2 mph (4 km/h).  A very slow northwestward motion is expected during the next day or so.  On the forecast track, the center of Tara should pass very close to the coast of southwestern Mexico, or possibly move inland, tonight or Wednesday.
Maximum sustained winds have decreased to near 35 mph (55 km/h) with higher gusts. Further weakening is forecast as Tara's circulation interacts with the mountains of southwestern Mexico, and the system is forecast to degenerate into a remnant low later tonight or on Wednesday.
The estimated minimum central pressure is 1005 mb (29.68 inches).
 HAZARDS AFFECTING LAND ---------------------- RAINFALL:  Tara is expected to produce additional rainfall of 3 to 6 inches over the Mexican states of Colima and western Jalisco through tonight, with isolated maximum amounts of 15 inches possible over Colima and western Jalisco. These rains may produce life-threatening flash floods and mudslides, especially in mountainous terrain.
 NEXT ADVISORY ------------- Next complete advisory at 1000 PM CDT.
