TTAA00 KNHC DDHHMM
TROPICAL DEPRESSION KEVIN DISCUSSION NUMBER  11
NWS TPC/NATIONAL HURRICANE CENTER MIAMI FL
8 PM PDT FRI SEP 05 2003
 
KEVIN IS STILL A LARGE SWIRL OF LOW CLOUDS ON SATELLITE IMAGERY AND
IS COMPLETELY DEVOID OF THUNDERSTORM ACTIVITY AS EASTERLY SHEAR
IMPINGES UPON THE SYSTEM.
 
AS THE PREVIOUS FORECAST DISCUSSION INDICATED KEVIN IS SET TO TURN
MORE LEFT AND EVENTUALLY TRACKS SOUTH AND WEST AS IT RESPONDS TO A
LOW/MID LEVEL RIDGE LOCATED SOUTHWEST OF CALIFORNIA.  THE CURRENT
MOTION HAS BEEN 300/7 AND WILL TEND MORE TOWARD THE WEST WITH TIME
WHICH THE FORECAST INDICATES.

THE TRACK IS ADJUSTED A BIT TO THE SOUTH NEAR THE GFS MODEL SOLUTION
WHICH SEEMS TO HAVE A GOOD HANDLE OF THE SYNOPTIC FEATURES.
 
SHIPS INTENSITY FORECASTS DISSIPATE KEVIN COMPLETELY WITHIN THE NEXT
24 HOURS AS IT TRACKS ACROSS THE 24 DEGREE C SST ISOTHERM.  BEYOND
24 HR THE REMNANTS OF KEVIN BEYOND WILL PERSIST OVER THE NEXT FEW
DAYS AS THE SYSTEM SPINS DOWN.  THIS IS THE LAST ADVISORY TO BE
ISSUED ON TROPICAL DEPRESSION KEVIN.
