WIND: Tropical storm conditions are expected to first reach the
coast within the warning area by Sunday night, making outside
preparations difficult or dangerous. Tropical storm conditions are
possible in the watch area Sunday night and Monday.

RAINFALL: The low is expected to produce total rain accumulations of
3 to 7 inches over western Cuba and 2 to 4 inches over the Yucatan
peninsula, Belize, and northern Honduras through Tuesday. Isolated
maximum amounts of 12 inches are possible in western Cuba. A
separate area of persistent very heavy rainfall is expected along
the Pacific coast of Central America and Mexico, including western
Nicaragua, El Salvador, Guatemala, and the state of Chiapas in
Mexico. In many of these areas this rainfall could lead to
life-threatening flash floods.
