DISCUSSION AND OUTLOOK
----------------------
At 100 AM CDT (0600 UTC), the center of Tropical Storm Marco was
located near latitude 23.1 North, longitude 86.6 West. Marco is
moving toward the north-northwest near 13 mph (20 km/h). Marco is
forecast to continue moving north-northwestward across the central
Gulf of Mexico today and will approach the northern Gulf Coast on
Monday. A gradual turn toward the west with a decrease in forward
speed is expected after Marco moves inland on Monday and on Tuesday.

Data from an Air Force Reserve Hurricane Hunter aircraft indicate
that the maximum sustained winds have increased to near 70 mph (110
km/h) with higher gusts. Some strengthening is anticipated and Marco
is forecast to become a hurricane today. Marco is expected to be at
or near hurricane strength when it approaches the northern Gulf
Coast on Monday. Rapid weakening is expected after Marco moves
inland.

Tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 70 miles (110 km)
from the center.

The estimated minimum central pressure based on data from the Air
Force reconnaissance plane is 994 mb (29.36 inches).


HAZARDS AFFECTING LAND
----------------------
STORM SURGE:  The combination of a dangerous storm surge and the
tide will cause normally dry areas near the coast to be flooded by
rising waters moving inland from the shoreline.  The water could
reach the following heights above ground somewhere in the indicated
areas if the peak surge occurs at the time of high tide...

Grand Isle LA to the AL/FL Border including Lake Borgne and Mobile
Bay...3-5 ft
Lake Pontchartrain and Lake Maurepas...2-4 ft
Sabine Pass to Grand Isle LA...2-4 ft

The deepest water will occur along the immediate coast in areas of
onshore winds, where the surge will be accompanied by large and
destructive waves.  Surge-related flooding depends on the relative
timing of the surge and the tidal cycle, and can vary greatly over
short distances.  For information specific to your area, please see
products issued by your local National Weather Service forecast
office.

WIND:  Hurricane conditions are possible within the hurricane watch
area by midday Monday, with tropical storm conditions possible by
early Monday.  Tropical storm conditions are possible within the
tropical storm watch area on Monday.

Tropical storm conditions are expected to continue within the
warning area in Cuba through the next few hours.

RAINFALL: Marco is expected to produce the following rainfall
accumulations through Tuesday:

Far western Cuba: 2 to 4 inches of rain, with isolated maximum
amounts of 6 inches possible

Central U.S. Gulf Coast: 1 to 3 inches, isolated maximum amounts of
5 inches.

This rainfall may result in areas of flash and urban flooding along
the Central U.S. Gulf Coast.
