The center of Tropical Storm Max was located near latitude 16.1 North, longitude 101.4 West. Max is moving toward the east-northeast near 3 mph (6 km/h). This motion will bring the center of Max inland over Mexico within the warning area on Thursday.
Maximum sustained winds are near 40 mph (65 km/h) with higher gusts. No significant change in strength is anticipated before Max moves inland. Tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 35 miles (55 km) from the center.
Tropical Storm Max is expected to produce total rainfall accumulations of 5 to 10 inches with maximum totals of 15 inches across southern portions of the Mexican state of Guerrero and western portions of the state of Oaxaca. These rainfall amounts may produce life- threatening flash floods and mudslides.
