DISCUSSION AND OUTLOOK
----------------------
At 100 PM CDT (1800 UTC), the center of Tropical Storm Julia was
located inland near latitude 12.4 North, longitude 86.2 West.  Julia
is moving toward the west near 16 mph (26 km/h), and this motion is
expected to continue today, with a slightly slower 
west-northwestward motion tonight and Monday.  On the forecast
track, the center of Julia is expected to continue moving over
Nicaragua today and emerge off the Pacific coast by this evening.
Julia is then expected to move very near to and parallel to the
Pacific coasts of Honduras, El Salvador, and Guatemala tonight and
Monday.
 
Maximum sustained winds have decreased to near 60 mph (95 km/h)
with higher gusts.  Additional weakening is forecast during the next
day or two, but Julia is still expected to be a tropical storm when
it moves near the Pacific coasts of Nicaragua, Honduras, and El
Salvador tonight and Monday.  Julia is expected to dissipate near
the coast of Guatemala by Monday night.
 
Tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 90 miles (150 km)
from the center.
 
The estimated minimum central pressure is 996 mb (29.41 inches).
 
 
HAZARDS AFFECTING LAND

WIND:  Tropical storm conditions are expected along the Pacific
coasts of Nicaragua, Honduras, and El Salvador within the warning
area beginning this afternoon through Monday morning.  Tropical
storm conditions are possible along the Pacific coast of Guatemala
within the watch area on Monday.
 
RAINFALL:  Julia is expected to produce the following rainfall
accumulations through Tuesday:
 
Nicaragua and El Salvador...5 to 10 inches, isolated 15 inches.

anticipated across the Isthmus of Tehuantepec in Mexico early this
week.
 
SURF:  Swells generated by Julia are affecting Jamaica, Providencia,
and San Andres, and the coast of Central America.  These swells are
