T-NUMBERS ARE GRADUALLY DECREASING AND SUPPORT AN INITIAL INTENSITY
OF 70 KNOTS. HILARY IS ALREADY NEARING LOW SEA SURFACE TEMPERATURES
AND THE CYCLONE CIRCULATION SHOULD BE COMPLETELY OVER COOL WATERS IN
A DAY OR SO. THEREFORE...A GRADUAL WEAKENING IS INDICATED IN THE
OFFICIAL FORECAST.  

HILARY CONTINUES TO MOVE TOWARD THE WEST-NORTHWEST OR 300 DEGREES AT
9 KNOTS AROUND A SUBTROPICAL RIDGE. THIS GENERAL MOTION SHOULD
CONTINUE DURING THEN NEXT 2 TO 3 DAYS. THEREAFTER...AS THE 
CYCLONE WEAKENS AND BECOME SHALLOW IT WILL LIKELY TO BE STEERED
WESTWARD BY THE LOW-LEVEL FLOW. THIS IS CONSISTENT WITH GUIDANCE.
