THE SYSTEM FOLLOWED SINCE TWO DAYS BEGAN TO ORGANIZE. IT STILL UNDERGOES
A MODERATE TO STRONG EASTERLY VERTICAL WIND SHEAR AND THE LOW LEVEL
CIRCULATION IS WELL EXPOSED. DEEP CONVECTION IS PRESENT OVER THE WESTERN
PART OF THE SYSTEM. THE MOVEMENT IS SOUTHWESTWARDS AT 9 KT. THE
EQUATORWARDS LOW LEVEL
INFLOW IS WORSE THAT YESTERDAY, BUT IS GOOD POLARWARDS. THE SYSTEM IS
EXPECTED TO TRACK SOUTHWESTWARDS AND THEN WEST-SOUTHWESTWARDS. VERTICAL
WIND SHEAR SHOULD WEAKEN PROGRESSIVELY UP TO 24 HOURS, AS THE SYSTEM
COMES NEARER THE UPPER LEVEL RIDGE AXIS LOCATED IN THE SOUTH. FOR THE
NEXT THREE DAYS, S
ST REMAIN AT ABOUT 27C AND BEYOND BECOME COOLER. ACCORDING WITH THIS
CONDITIONS, AVAILABLE NWP MODELS FORECAST A SLOW INTENSIFICATION DURING
THE NEXT 72 HOURS.
