Tropical Depression DANIEL
ZCZC MIATCDEP5 ALL TTAA00 KNHC DDHHMM Tropical Depression Daniel Discussion Number 8 NWS National Hurricane Center Miami FL EP052018 200 PM PDT Mon Jun 25 2018 Convection associated with Daniel continues to diminish as the cyclone moves over cooler water, and most satellite intensity estimates have dropped below tropical-storm strength. Thus, Daniel is downgraded to a tropical depression. The system should continue to weaken over sea surface temperatures near 23C, and it is forecast to degenerate into a remnant low by 24 h and to dissipate completely between 48-72 h. The initial motion is now 305/7. Daniel should turn more westward during the next 24 h as low-level easterly flow on the south side of the subtropical ridge becomes the main steering mechanism, and this motion should continue through dissipation. The new track forecast is similar to the previous forecast and it is a little north of the center of the guidance envelope.
