Tropical Depression Norma Discussion Number  21
NWS National Hurricane Center Miami FL       EP172017
900 AM MDT Tue Sep 19 2017

Norma continues to produce a small area of deep convection near
and to the east of the estimated low-level center.  The initial
intensity is held at 30 kt based on the earlier ASCAT data and a
blend of the Dvorak final T and CI numbers from TAFB and SAB.  Norma
is currently over 26 deg C SSTs, and it will be headed toward even
cooler waters during the next couple of days.  These unfavorable
oceanic conditions combined with a dry atmosphere should cause Norma
to continue weakening, and the depression will likely become a
remnant low in about 24 hours or sooner.  The global models show the
remnant low opening into a trough by 48 hours.

The depression is moving westward at 4 kt.  A west-northwestward to
northwestward motion within the low-level flow is expected until
the system dissipates.  The NHC track forecast lies near the middle
of the guidance envelope.
