Tropical Depression GIL


ZCZC MIATCDEP2 ALL
TTAA00 KNHC DDHHMM
 
TROPICAL DEPRESSION GIL DISCUSSION NUMBER  22
NWS NATIONAL HURRICANE CENTER MIAMI FL       EP072013
200 PM PDT SUN AUG 04 2013
 
VISIBLE IMAGES SHOW THE CENTER OF GIL MOSTLY EXPOSED ON THE
NORTHEAST SIDE OF A WEAKENING AREA OF CONVECTION.  THE CURRENT
INTENSITY IS HELD AT 30 KT IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE SATELLITE
ESTIMATE FROM TAFB.  GIL WILL LIKELY BECOME A REMNANT LOW IN A DAY
OR SO DUE TO STABLE AIR NEAR THE CENTER AND PERSISTENT SHEAR. 
THERE REMAINS A REMOTE CHANCE THAT GIL COULD MAKE A COMEBACK IN A
FEW DAYS WHEN IT MOVES INTO A MORE CONDUCIVE ENVIRONMENT...BUT IT
IS DOUBTFUL THE SMALL SYSTEM WILL MAKE IT THAT LONG.  THE NEW NHC
FORECAST IS THE SAME AS THE PREVIOUS ONE.

A WEST-SOUTHWESTWARD MOTION SHOULD CONTINUE WITH GIL FOR THE NEXT
COUPLE OF DAYS AS IT REMAINS BENEATH A LOW-LEVEL RIDGE.  THE
REMNANTS OF THE CYCLONE WILL LIKELY TURN WESTWARD BEYOND THAT TIME
WHEN IT BECOMES EMBEDDED WITHIN THE ITCZ.  ONLY COSMETIC CHANGES
WERE MADE TO THE PREVIOUS FORECAST TO ACCOUNT FOR THE LATEST TRACK
CONSENSUS GUIDANCE.
