DISCUSSION AND OUTLOOK
----------------------
At 1000 AM CDT (1500 UTC), the center of Tropical Depression
Fourteen was located near latitude 19.2 North, longitude 86.9 West.
The depression is moving toward the north near 6 mph (9 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
near the northeastern tip of the Yucatan Peninsula Monday morning,
and then across the eastern Gulf of Mexico late Monday through
Wednesday morning.

Maximum sustained winds are near 35 mph (55 km/h) with higher gusts.
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. This rainfall
could lead to life-threatening flash floods and mudslides in areas
of mountainous terrain.

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.
