Tropical Storm HILDA


ZCZC MIATCDEP3 ALL
TTAA00 KNHC DDHHMM
TROPICAL DEPRESSION HILDA DISCUSSION NUMBER  17
NWS TPC/NATIONAL HURRICANE CENTER MIAMI FL
2 AM PDT WED AUG 13 2003
 
NIGHT-VIS AND MICROWAVE IMAGERY SUGGEST THAT THE CIRCULATION IS
STARTING TO BECOME BROAD AND DIFFUSE. WHILE CONVECTION PERISTS IN
THE NORTHEASTERN QUADRANT...IT IS BEGINNING TO DECAY AND PULL AWAY
FROM THE CENTER. THE CLOSEST COLD CONVECTION IS NOW 120 NM FROM THE
CENTER. UNLESS THERE IS AN UNEXPECTED RESURGENCE...HILDA WILL
DEGENERATE INTO A REMNANT LOW WITHIN 6-12 HOURS.

THE INITIAL MOTION IS 270/7.  THE MOTION HAS SLOWED OVER THE PAST 12
HOURS...PERHAPS DUE TO THE PERSISTENT CONVECTIVE ASYMMETRY TO THE
EAST.  WITH THIS CONVECTION DECAYING AND RETREATING...A FASTER
TRACK IS EXPECTED TO RESUME UNTIL DISSIPATION.
