In the tropics, Karl is now a post-tropical system.  At 5 am, Karl was located about 80 miles west of Ciudad del Carmen, Mexico.  Maximum sustained winds were 30 miles per hour, and the system was moving southwest at 5 miles per hour.  Even though Karl has weakened, it is still bringing very heavy rain and the threat of life-threatening mudslides to southern Mexico.

In the eastern Atlantic, the wave we’ve been tracking has a low chance of becoming a depression during the next couple of days, after which upper-level winds will be unfavorable for development.
