THAN THE DYNAMICAL MODELS...AND THE OFFICIAL FORECAST REMAINS NEAR
THE INTENSITY CONSENSUS.  JULIA WILL BE BATTLING VERY STRONG
NORTHWESTERLY SHEAR...BUT IT SHOULD TAKE SOME TIME FOR THE
CIRCULATION TO SPIN DOWN.  THE CYCLONE IS EXPECTED TO BECOME A
REMNANT LOW IN ABOUT 36 HOURS AND THEN DISSIPATE WITHIN THE
SOUTHWESTERLY FLOW EAST OF IGOR IN 48 HOURS.
 
AFTER TAKING A SUDDEN AND QUICK JUMP TO THE EAST-NORTHEAST THIS
MORNING...JULIA HAS SETTLED ON A MOTION OF ABOUT 50 DEGREES AT 12
KT.  THE UKMET...GFDL...AND GFDN SEEM TO UNREALISTICALLY TURN JULIA
TOWARD THE NORTHWEST OR NORTH AFTER 24 HOURS...SO THE NHC TRACK
FORECAST IS BASED ON A BLEND OF THE OTHER MAJOR DYNAMICAL MODELS. 
THIS TRACK REMAINS ON THE SOUTHERN SIDE OF THE GUIDANCE ENVELOPE.
