Tropical Depression GIL


ZCZC MIATCDEP5 ALL
TTAA00 KNHC DDHHMM
TROPICAL DEPRESSION GIL DISCUSSION NUMBER  13
NWS TPC/NATIONAL HURRICANE CENTER MIAMI FL   EP102007
800 AM PDT SAT SEP 01 2007
 
GIL CONTINUES TO PRODUCE SPORADIC CONVECTION THAT BARELY MEETS THE
REQUIREMENTS FOR A TROPICAL CYCLONE.  OVERALL...IT SEEMS LIKE THE
CIRCULATION HAS WEAKENED SINCE YESTERDAY...AND THIS THINKING IS IN
LINE WITH DECREASING DVORAK SATELLITE ESTIMATES.  THE INITIAL
INTENSITY IS LOWERED TO 25 KT.  A SLOW DECREASE IN STRENGTH IS
LIKELY AS THE CYCLONE MOVES OVER COOLER WATERS.  GIL SHOULD BECOME
A REMNANT LOW TOMORROW...IF NOT SOONER.

THE CYCLONE IS MOVING A LITTLE NORTH OF WEST NOW...280/8. WEAK
RIDGING SHOULD PERSIST TO THE NORTH OF GIL FOR THE NEXT SEVERAL
DAY AND FORCE A WEST TO WEST-NORTHWESTWARD MOTION.  THE TRACK IS
VERY SIMILAR TO THE PREVIOUS ADVISORY AND IS ON THE SOUTHERN PORTION
OF THE GUIDANCE ENVELOPE.
