Tropical Depression GIL


ZCZC MIATCDEP5 ALL
TTAA00 KNHC DDHHMM
TROPICAL DEPRESSION GIL DISCUSSION NUMBER  17
NWS TPC/NATIONAL HURRICANE CENTER MIAMI FL   EP102007
800 AM PDT SUN SEP 02 2007
 
ENHANCED INFRARED SATELLITE IMAGERY SHOWS NEARLY ALL DEEP CONVECTION
ASSOCIATED WITH GIL HAS DISSIPATED. A SMALL CLUSTER OF THUNDERSTORM
ACTIVITY IS LOCATED WELL WEST OF THE CIRCULATION CENTER. AN AMSR-E
MICROWAVE PASS AT 02/1011Z WAS USED TO HELP LOCATE THE PARTIALLY
EXPOSED LOW LEVEL CENTER. A QUIKSCAT PASS AT 02/0242Z PROVIDED A
GOOD LOOK AT WINDS NEAR THE CENTER OF GIL. MAXIMUM WINDS ARE ONLY
20 TO 25 KT IN THE NW QUADRANT...MAINLY FROM THE SUBTROPICAL RIDGE
PRESSURE GRADIENT. WINDS ARE 15 KT OR LESS IN THE SE SEMICIRCLE. 

MINIMAL CONVECTION AND COOLER WATERS HAVE ALLOWED GIL TO REACH THE
POINT WHERE IT CAN NO LONGER BE CONSIDERED A TROPICAL CYCLONE.
THEREFORE THIS IS THE FINAL ADVISORY ON THIS SYSTEM.

THE REMNANT LOW OF GIL SHOULD PERSIST ANOTHER DAY OR SO...THEN
BECOME INDISTINGUISHABLE...EMBEDDED WITHIN THE LARGE SCALE FLOW
WEST OF TROPICAL STORM HENRIETTE.
