For storm information specific to your area, please monitor

DISCUSSION AND OUTLOOK
----------------------
At 700 AM CDT (1200 UTC), the center of Tropical Depression Fourteen
was located near latitude 18.9 North, longitude 86.8 West. The
depression is moving toward the north near 3 mph (6 km/h). This
general motion with some increase in forward speed is expected
over the next few days. On the forecast track, the center will move
through the Yucatan Channel Monday morning and then across the
eastern Gulf of Mexico late Monday through Wednesday.

Maximum sustained winds are near 35 mph (55 km/h) with higher
gusts. Some strengthening is forecast during the next several days,
and the depression is expected to become a tropical storm later
today. The system could become a hurricane by Tuesday night or
Wednesday.

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


HAZARDS AFFECTING LAND
----------------------
WIND: Tropical storm conditions are expected to first reach the
coast within the warning area by this evening or tonight, making
outside preparations difficult or dangerous.

RAINFALL: Total rain accumulations of 3 to 7 inches are expected
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.

Elsewhere, outer rain bands from the depression are expected to
produce total rain accumulations of 2 to 4 inches across the Florida
Keys through Monday.
