Storm Raymond, located several hundred miles south of the southern
tip of the Baja California peninsula.

Shower activity associated with a small area of low pressure located
several hundred miles southwest of the Gulf of Tehuantepec has
become a little better organized this afternoon.  Some additional
gradual development of this disturbance is possible, and a tropical
depression could form early next week while the system moves
westward at around 10 mph.

SUMMARY OF 200 PM MST...2100 UTC...INFORMATION
----------------------------------------------
LOCATION...14.7N 109.4W
ABOUT 565 MI...915 KM S OF THE SOUTHERN TIP OF BAJA CALIFORNIA
MAXIMUM SUSTAINED WINDS...50 MPH...85 KM/H
PRESENT MOVEMENT...NNW OR 330 DEGREES AT 7 MPH...11 KM/H
MINIMUM CENTRAL PRESSURE...1002 MB...29.59 INCHES


WATCHES AND WARNINGS
--------------------
There are no coastal watches or warnings in effect.

Interests in the southern Baja California peninsula should monitor
the progress of Raymond.


DISCUSSION AND OUTLOOK
----------------------
At 200 PM MST (2100 UTC), the center of Tropical Storm Raymond was
located near latitude 14.7 North, longitude 109.4 West. Raymond is
moving toward the north-northwest near 7 mph (11 km/h). A turn
toward the north with a slightly faster forward speed is anticipated
on Saturday.  On the forecast track, the center of Raymond is
expected to be near the southern tip of the Baja California
peninsula late Sunday or early Monday.

Maximum sustained winds have increased to near 50 mph (85 km/h)
with higher gusts.  Some slight additional strengthening is
possible tonight, followed by weakening by early Sunday. Raymond is
predicted to degenerate into a remnant low on Monday.

Tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 125 miles (205 km)
from the center.

The estimated minimum central pressure is 1002 mb (29.59 inches).


HAZARDS AFFECTING LAND
----------------------
RAINFALL: Raymond is expected to produce total rainfall
accumulations of 3 to 5 inches across the southern portions of Baja
California Sur with isolated maximum amounts of 10 inches. This
rainfall may produce life threatening flash floods.

Tropical Storm Raymond Discussion Number   4
NWS National Hurricane Center Miami FL       EP202019
200 PM MST Fri Nov 15 2019

Raymond continues to move toward the north-northwest several hundred
miles south of the Baja California peninsula. ASCAT-B data at 1624
UTC showed that Raymond's circulation has become a little better
defined with maximum winds of 35-40 kt. The initial intensity has
been increased to 45 kt based on that data, assuming that the ASCAT
slightly under-sampled the strongest winds.

The tropical storm is in a moderate shear environment which will
likely limit its development potential. Most of the intensity
guidance indicates that some slight strengthening is possible today,
but a general weakening trend should begin by late Saturday. Raymond
is forecast to become post-tropical in about 72 h, but several of
the dynamical models now suggest that the cyclone will still have
tropical characteristics when it nears the southern tip of the Baja
California peninsula late Sunday or early Monday. That said, there
is still a large amount of uncertainty regarding Raymond's structure
when, or if, it reaches the coast of the peninsula. Regardless of
the cyclone's status, rainfall associated with Raymond
will likely spread northward into southern portions of the Baja
California peninsula in a couple of days. These rains could cause
life-threatening flash flooding.

Raymond should continue moving generally north-northwestward through
tonight. A turn to the north is forecast on Saturday as Raymond
moves between a mid-level ridge centered over Mexico and a mid- to
upper-level trough located off the west coast of the Baja California
peninsula. The track guidance has converged on top of the previous
NHC forecast track and virtually no change was made to the official
forecast, which lies between the corrected consensus aids HCCA and
FSSE.
