A Tropical Storm Warning means that tropical storm conditions are expected somewhere within the warning area.
 DISCUSSION AND OUTLOOK ---------------------- At 1200 PM CST (1800 UTC), the center of Tropical Storm Xavier was located near latitude 17.8 North, longitude 105.4 West.  Xavier is moving toward the north near 6 mph (9 km/h).  A turn toward the northwest and west-northwest at a similar forward speed is expected tonight and on Monday, followed by a westward motion by Tuesday. On the forecast track, Xavier's center is expected to remain offshore the coast of southwestern Mexico and begin to move farther away from the coast tonight and on Monday.
Maximum sustained winds are near 50 mph (85 km/h) with higher gusts.  Weakening is forecast during the next few days, and Xavier is expected to degenerate into a remnant low by Tuesday.
Recent satellite-derived wind data indicate that tropical-storm- force winds extend outward up to 150 miles (240 km) from the center.  These winds are occurring very near the coast of southwestern Mexico.
The estimated minimum central pressure is 1003 mb (29.62 inches).
 HAZARDS AFFECTING LAND ---------------------- RAINFALL:  Xavier is expected to produce total rain accumulations of 1 to 3 inches over coastal sections of the Mexican states of Guerrero, Michoacan, Colima, and Jalisco through Monday.
WIND:  Tropical storm conditions are expected within the warning area through early Monday.
SURF:  Swells generated by Xavier will affect portions of the coast of southwestern Mexico during the next few days.  These swells are likely to cause life-threatening surf and rip current conditions.  Please consult products from your local weather office.
