Tropical Depression Eight-E Discussion Number   9
NWS National Hurricane Center Miami FL       EP082017
800 AM PDT Thu Jul 20 2017

The center of the depression remains difficult to find, but it
appears to be near a small area of disorganized convection.  As
with the previous advisory, the satellite intensity estimates remain
largely unchanged and the initial intensity is held at 25 kt.

There is again no change to the intensity forecast thinking. A
combination of shear from an upper-level low to the north and
interaction with Tropical Storm Greg to the east should cause the
depression to weaken and eventually dissipate.  The intensity
forecast has the system degenerating into a remnant low after 24 h
and dissipating after 48 hr as it become absorbed into Greg.
However, the system could decay to a remnant low at any time before

The initial motion remains 245/5 kt.  The depression is still
expected to be advected slowly southwestward around the
circulation of Greg until dissipation.  The new forecast track is an
update of the previous track.
