Tropical Storm Hilary Discussion Number  37
NWS National Hurricane Center Miami FL       EP092017
800 AM PDT Sun Jul 30 2017

Convection has continued to rapidly wane with only a small band of
modest thunderstorm activity with tops to -30C restricted to the
southeastern quadrant. The initial intensity has been lowered to 35
kt based on a blend of available intensity estimates from TAFB, SAB,
and UW-CIMSS ADT and SATCON. This rapid weakening trend is forecast
to continue since Hilary is now moving over sub-22 C SSTs and into
an extensive field of stable, cold-air stratocumulus clouds. These
unfavorable thermodynamic conditions should cause Hilary to
degenerate into a remnant low pressure system tonight, if not
sooner.

The initial motion estimate is 300/11 kt. As Hilary continues to
lose its deep vertical circulation, the shallow cyclone should
maintain a general west-northwestward motion along the southern
periphery of a deep-layer ridge until dissipation occurs in 72 h.
The NHC track forecast remains along the southern portion of the
tightly clustered guidance and is close to the previous advisory
track.
