DISCUSSION AND 48-HOUR OUTLOOK
------------------------------
At 700 AM CDT (1200 UTC), the center of Tropical Storm Franklin was
located near latitude 19.5 North, longitude 89.1 West.  Franklin is
moving toward the west-northwest near 14 mph (22 km/h).  A
west-northwestward to westward motion is expected over the next
couple of days.  On the forecast track, the center of Franklin will
continue to move across the Yucatan peninsula today, and emerge over
the Bay of Campeche this evening or tonight.  Franklin will then
move westward across the Bay of Campeche on Wednesday.

Maximum sustained winds have decreased to near 45 mph (75 km/h)
with higher gusts.  Additional weakening is expected while Franklin
moves across the Yucatan peninsula today.  Restrengthening is
forecast to begin tonight and Wednesday while Franklin moves over
the Bay of Campeche.

Tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 140 miles (220 km)
from the center.

The estimated minimum central pressure is 999 mb (29.50 inches).


HAZARDS AFFECTING LAND
----------------------
RAINFALL:  Rainfall amounts of 3 to 6 inches, with isolated amounts
of around 12 inches, are possible across the Yucatan Peninsula of
Mexico and Belize through Wednesday, with the highest amounts over
the Mexican state of Quintana Roo.  In addition, Franklin is
expected to bring 4 to 8 inches of rainfall with isolated amounts
up to 15 inches through Thursday to northern Veracruz, Puebla,
Tlaxcala, Hidalgo, and eastern San Louis Potosi in eastern Mexico.
These rains will be capable of producing life-threatening flash
floods and mudslides.

WIND:  Tropical storm conditions are likely still occurring over
portions of the east coast of the Yucatan peninsula.  These
conditions should spread westward across the remainder of the
warning area today and diminish along the east coast of the Yucatan
peninsula later this morning.  Hurricane or tropical storm
conditions are possible within the hurricane watch area by late
Wednesday.  Tropical storm conditions are possible within the
tropical storm watch area tonight and Wednesday.
