Tropical Storm DANIEL


Tropical Storm Daniel Discussion Number   7
NWS National Hurricane Center Miami FL       EP052018
800 AM PDT Mon Jun 25 2018

Convection associated with Daniel is gradually diminishing as the
cyclone moves over cooler water, with the remaining convection just
to the west or southwest of the center.  The initial intensity is
reduced to 35 kt based on various subjective and objective
satellite intensity estimates.  Daniel should continue to weaken
over sea surface temperatures of 23-24C, with the system expected
to drop below tropical storm strength in the next 12 h and to
degenerate to a remnant low by 36 h.

The cyclone is starting its expected left turn with the initial
motion now 315/8.  A combination of a mid- to upper-level low to
the west-southwest and a low- to mid-level ridge to the north
should cause Daniel to turn west-northwestward to westward during
the next 36 h, with the westward motion continuing until the
cyclone dissipates.  The new track forecast is similar to the
previous forecast and is close to the center of the guidance
envelope through 48 h.
