THE CYCLONE IS DEVOID OF DEEP CONVECTION NEAR THE CENTER.  DVORAK
CONSTRAINTS KEEP THE WIND SPEED AT 45 KNOTS...BUT PETER HAS LIKELY
FALLEN BELOW STORM STRENGTH AND THE OFFICIAL INITIAL INTENSITY IS
ESTIMATED AT 30 KNOTS.  THE APPROACHING FRONT HAS REACHED THE OUTER
CIRCULATION OF PETER AND STRONG SHEAR IS EVIDENT.  THE 00Z GFS
MODEL SHOWS THE WEAKENING CYCLONE ABSORBED BY THE FRONT WITHIN 24
HOURS...WHILE THE UKMET AND NOGAPS MODELS TAKE A LITTLE LONGER TO
DISSIPATE THE SURFACE CIRCULATION.

PREVIOUS ADVISORY.  THE GLOBAL MODELS ARE IN CLOSE AGREEMENT ABOUT
A MOSTLY NORTHEASTWARD TRACK AND INCREASING FORWARD SPEED AS THE
CYCLONE GETS SWEPT AWAY BY THE APPROACHING FRONTAL TROUGH.
