EXPECTED TO OCCUR WITH POSSIBLE BRIEF INTERMITTENT FLARE-UPS OF
THUNDERSTORMS.  HOWEVER IF THUNDERSTORM ACTIVITY DOES NOT
REGENERATE AGAIN...THE SYSTEM COULD BECOME A REMNANT LOW LATER
TODAY.   

FABIO IS CONTINUING ON A WESTERLY TRACK AT 275/15...SANDWICHED
BETWEEN A STRONG MID-LEVEL ANTICYCLONE TO ITS NORTH AND A MID- TO
UPPER-LEVEL LOW TO ITS SOUTH.  THE OFFICIAL TRACK FORECAST TAKES
THE CYCLONE...OR REMNANT LOW...ON A WESTERLY TRACK UNTIL
DISSIPATION OCCURS.  THIS FOLLOWS MOST OF THE DYNAMICAL GUIDANCE
