    DISCUSSION AND OUTLOOK
    ----------------------
    At 700 PM CDT (0000 UTC), the center of Tropical Depression Four-E
    was located near latitude 15.6 North, longitude 100.2 West. The
    depression is moving toward the northwest near 5 mph (8 km/h), and
    this motion is expected to continue overnight. The cyclone is
    forecast to slow down as it approaches the coast of southern Mexico
    on Friday and Saturday, and could move inland on Sunday.

    Maximum sustained winds are near 35 mph (55 km/h) with higher
    gusts. Gradual strengthening is forecast during the next 48 hours.

    The estimated minimum central pressure is 1008 mb (29.77 inches).


    HAZARDS AFFECTING LAND
    ----------------------
    RAINFALL: The depression is forecast to produce 4 to 6 inches of
    rainfall along the Guerrero coast, including the city of Acapulco,
    with isolated higher amounts approaching 8 inches possible. These
    rains could produce life-threatening flash floods and mud slides.
    Farther inland across the state of Guerrero, rainfall amounts of 1
    to 2 inches with isolated amounts of 4 inches are forecast.

    WIND: Tropical storm conditions are possible within the watch
    area by Saturday afternoon.

    SURF: Swells generated by the depression 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.
