NWS TPC/NATIONAL HURRICANE CENTER MIAMI FL

SATELLITE IMAGERY SUGGESTS THAT PETER HAS REFUSED TO DISSIPATE SINCE
NEW BURSTS OF CONVECTION ARE DEVELOPING OVER THE SOUTHEASTERN
QUADRANT. INITIAL INTENSITY WILL REMAIN AT 30 KT.  HOWEVER...THE
THUNDERSTORM ACTIVITY IS EXPECTED TO BE SHORT LIVED AND INCREASING
WESTERLY SHEAR AND COOLER WATER SHOULD HINDER FURTHER DEVELOPMENT.  
 
INITIAL MOTION IS 025/15.  PETER SHOULD INCREASE FORWARD SPEED AND
MOVE NORTH-NORTHEASTWARD OVER COOLER WATERS AND BECOME ABSORBED BY
A FRONTAL ZONE OVER THE NEXT 24 HOURS. THE GLOBAL MODELS INDICATE

MOVE OVER THE AZORES WITHIN 48 HOURS.
