Tropical Depression RICHARD


ZCZC MIATCDAT4 ALL
TTAA00 KNHC DDHHMM
TROPICAL DEPRESSION RICHARD DISCUSSION NUMBER  19
NWS TPC/NATIONAL HURRICANE CENTER MIAMI FL   AL192010
1000 AM CDT MON OCT 25 2010
 
THE CYCLONE CONTINUES TO WEAKEN OVER LAND AND ENHANCED INFRARED
SATELLITE IMAGES SHOW VERY LITTLE DEEP CONVECTION REMAINING. 
ALTHOUGH RICHARD SHOULD ENTER THE GULF OF MEXICO IN 18 HOURS OR SO
THE SYSTEM WILL BE IN A VERY WEAKENED STATE...AND SOUTHWESTERLY
SHEAR ALONG WITH DRY AIR SHOULD PRECLUDE REGENERATION.  RICHARD IS
LIKELY TO DEGENERATE INTO A REMNANT LOW IN A COUPLE OF DAYS.

THE FORWARD SPEED HAS SLOWED AND THE MOTION IS NOW ESTIMATED TO BE
ABOUT 285/7.  A MID-LEVEL RIDGE TO THE NORTH OF THE CYCLONE AND
LOW-LEVEL SOUTHEASTERLY FLOW SHOULD STEER RICHARD OR ITS REMNANTS
ON A WEST-NORTHWESTWARD TO NORTHWESTWARD TRACK UNTIL DISSIPATION.
