DORA HAS BECOME DISORGANIZED THIS AFTERNOON...AS INDICATED BY THE
LARGE SCATTER IN THE SATELLITE POSITION ESTIMATES...AND THERE IS
ALSO A LARGE RANGE IN THE SATELLITE INTENSITY ESTIMATES. THE
INITIAL INTENSITY ESTIMATE IS A BLEND OF THE VARIOUS SATELLITE

ALSO REMAINS UNCHANGED FROM THE PREVIOUS ADVISORY.  THE LOW- TO
MID-LEVEL RIDGE CENTERED OVER NORTHERN MEXICO CONTINUE TO STEER
DORA WESTWARD THROUGHOUT THE FORECAST PERIOD. THE OFFICIAL TRACK IS
A LITTLE TO THE LEFT...OR SOUTH...OF THE PREVIOUS TRACK AND IS A
LITTLE NORTH OF THE BAM MODELS CONSENSUS...WHICH HAVE PERFORMED
QUITE WELL WITH THIS SYSTEM THUS FAR.

THERE MAY BE INTERMITTENT BURSTS OF DEEP CONVECTION FOR THE NEXT 24
HOURS...ANY OF WHICH COULD BRIEFLY SPIN UP THE CIRCULATION TO
MINIMAL TROPICAL STORM STRENGTH. HOWEVER...THE GENERAL TREND SHOULD
BE FOR GRADUAL WEAKENING TO OCCUR...ESPECIALLY AFTER 24 HOURS WHEN
THE CYCLONE WILL BE MOVING OVER COLD WATER.
