CLOUDS ASSOCIATED WITH CARLOTTA REMAINS IMPRESSIVE IN VISIBLE

VERTICALLY SHALLOW STRUCTURE...CARLOTTA WILL BE STEERED BY THE
LOWER-TROPOSPHERIC EASTERLIES SOUTH OF THE SUBTROPICAL HIGH
PRESSURE RIDGE. THIS WILL RESULT IN A GENERAL WEST TO WEST-
NORTHWESTWARD MOTION. NO SIGNIFICANT CHANGES WERE MADE TO THE
PREVIOUS TRACK AND INTENSITY FORECASTS.
