Tropical Storm Karl moves toward Mexican Gulf Coast

MEXICO CITY (AP) — Tropical Storm Karl turned south Thursday toward the Gulf of Mexico coast, and forecasters said it was unlikely to reach hurricane strength.

The storm was slowly moving north until weather conditions stopped it and turned it around. Its weakening is forecast before reaching the cist of Veracruz or Tabasco during the night from Friday to Saturday.

The US National Hurricane Center said Karl had maximum sustained winds of 50 mph (85 km/h) early Thursday. The eye was 250 miles (400 kilometers) northeast of Veracruz and was moving southeast at 2 mph (4 km/h).

The winds of a tropical storm extend at least 150 kilometers (90 miles) from the eye.

The hurricane center said Karl would dump up to 3 to 7 inches (8 to 18 centimeters) of rain in parts of Veracruz and Tabasco from Friday into Saturday.
