LACK OF DEEP CONVECTION FOR A WHILE NOW...FRANK NO LONGER QUALIFIES

APPEARS VIGOROUS...AND THUS THE INITIAL INTENSITY ESTIMATE IS ONLY
LOWERED TO 30 KT.
 
THE INITIAL MOTION ESTIMATE IS 010/6...TO THE EAST AND A BIT FASTER
THAN PREVIOUSLY.  A WEAK LOW-LEVEL SOUTHWESTERLY FLOW SHOULD STEER

WITH A GRADUAL DECREASE IN FORWARD SPEED UNTIL DISSIPATION IN A DAY
OR TWO.
