TTAA00 KNHC DDHHMM
TROPICAL DEPRESSION FELICIA DISCUSSION NUMBER  21
NWS TPC/NATIONAL HURRICANE CENTER MIAMI FL
8 PM PDT TUE JUL 22 2003
 
FELICIA IS LIKELY GOING INTO TERMINAL DECLINE.  THE LOW-LEVEL CENTER
HAS MOVED AWAY FROM THE NOW-DISSIPATING CONVECTION...AND ANIMATION
OF VISIBLE IMAGERY SUGGESTS THE CIRCULATION IS JUST BARELY CLOSED. 
THE INITIAL INTENSITY REMAINS 25 KT IN AGREEMENT WITH SATELLITE
INTENSITY ESTIMATES AND EARLIER SSM/I DATA.  THE CYCLONE IS MOVING
OVER COOLER WATER IN AN AREA OF INCREASING WESTERLY VERTICAL
SHEAR...SO IT SHOULD CONTINUE WEAKENING UNTIL BECOMING A NON-
CONVECTIVE LOW IN ABOUT 24 HR.

THE INITIAL MOTION IS 280-285 DEGREES AT 14 KT...AND THIS GENERAL
MOTION SHOULD CONTINUE UNTIL DISSIPATION.
