TROPICAL STORM GEORGETTE DISCUSSION NUMBER 23
NWS NATIONAL HURRICANE CENTER MIAMI FL EP082016
200 AM PDT WED JUL 27 2016
Georgette is on borrowed time. Enhanced IR imagery shows no deep
convection associated with the system, and if this condition
persists, the cyclone will be declared a remnant low later today.
The official forecast delays this event slightly, to allow for the
possibility that thunderstorms may redevelop in the circulation.
A scatterometer overpass indicated that the maximum winds were 35
kt, and that these tropical-storm-force winds were confined to the
northeastern quadrant of the system. A continued spin down of the
circulation over cooler waters is forecast and the cyclone should
dissipate in 2-3 days.
The center is difficult to locate on night time images, but my best
estimate of initial motion is 310/5 kt. Georgette, or its remnant
low, should move on a west-northwestward to westward heading, within
the low-level tradewinds, until dissipation. The official track
forecast is a blend of the latest GFS and ECMWF predictions.
