COAST OF MEXICO...


SUMMARY OF 100 PM CDT...1800 UTC...INFORMATION
----------------------------------------------
LOCATION...15.4N 97.0W
ABOUT 40 MI...65 KM WSW OF PUERTO ANGEL MEXICO
ABOUT 220 MI...355 KM ESE OF ACAPULCO MEXICO
MAXIMUM SUSTAINED WINDS...45 MPH...70 KM/H

DISCUSSION AND 48-HOUR OUTLOOK
------------------------------
At 100 PM CDT (1800 UTC), the center of Tropical Storm Beatriz
was located near latitude 15.4 North, longitude 97.0 West.
Beatriz is moving generally toward the north-northeast near 6 mph
(9 km/h) and this motion is expected to continue through Friday.  On
the forecast track, the center of the tropical cyclone is expected
to move inland across the state of Oaxaca later today or tonight.

Recent satellite wind data indicate that maximum sustained winds are
now near 45 mph (70 km/h) with higher gusts.  Little change in
strength is likely before landfall.  After landfall, Beatriz is
expected to weaken and dissipate on Friday over the mountains of
southeastern Mexico.

Tropical-storm force winds extend outward up to 35 miles (55 km)
from the center.

The estimated minimum central pressure is 1004 mb (29.65 inches).


HAZARDS AFFECTING LAND
----------------------
RAINFALL: Beatriz is expected to produce total rainfall
accumulations of 8 to 12 inches across the Mexican state of Oaxaca
with isolated maximum totals of 20 inches possible.  Lighter
amounts in the 1 to 3 inch range are possible across the southern
portion of the Mexican state of Veracruz.  This rainfall is likely
to produce life-threatening flash floods and mudslides.

WIND:  Tropical storm conditions are expected within the warning
area during the next several hours.

Hi,
I think it might be useful if you at least added some comment rather then just re-posting articles from elsewhere... ;) Should I start copying Czech forecasts here? I mean its fine to discuss things, but if you just copy/paste it is not of much use, not to mention that there are millions of things that could be copied here.
