Tropical Storm Beatriz

05/31/-6/4

Even with the help of visible imagery and scatterometer data, there
is some spread in the center fix locations. The initial motion is
thus a rather uncertain 025/4. Southwesterly flow to the east of a
broad mid- to upper-level trough over northwestern Mexico should
steer the cyclone generally northeastward through landfall and
dissipation. The new forecast track is again similar to, but
slightly slower than the previous track.

Heavy rains, flash flooding, and mudslides will continue to be the
biggest threats from this system.
