 HURRICANE BUD DISCUSSION NUMBER  15
 NWS TPC/NATIONAL HURRICANE CENTER MIAMI FL   EP032006
 200 AM PDT FRI JUL 14 2006
  
 COOLER SEA SURFACE TEMPERATURES AND AN INCREASINGLY STABLE
 ENVIRONMENT CONTINUE TO INDUCE A STEADY WEAKENING OF BUD.  THE
 HURRICANE IS NOW ESTIMATED TO BE OVER SSTS OF LESS THAN 24C...AND
 ONLY A FEW CLOUD TOPS COLDER THAN -50C REMAIN.  THE INTENSITY OF A
 TROPICAL CYCLONE AS IT WEAKENS DURING PASSAGE OVER THE EASTERN
 PACIFIC SST GRADIENT IS ALWAYS UNCERTAIN...BUT MY BEST ESTIMATE OF
 75 KT AT 06Z WAS BASED ON A BLEND OF THE VARIOUS DVORAK DATA T AND
 CI NUMBERS.  WITH THE CONVECTION QUICKLY ON THE DECLINE...THE 09Z
 ADVISORY INTENSITY IS SET TO 70 KT...AND BUD WILL WEAKEN TO A
 TROPICAL STORM SHORTLY.  THE CYCLONE WILL LIKELY BECOME A
 DEPRESSION NEAR THIS TIME TOMORROW...AND IT IS FORECAST TO
 DEGENERATE INTO A NON-CONVECTIVE REMNANT LOW IN 48 HOURS OR LESS.
 
 BUD IS STILL MOVING WEST-NORTHWESTWARD OR 290 DEGREES AT ABOUT 13
 KT...STEERED BY THE DEPENDABLE DEEP-LAYER SUBTROPICAL RIDGE
 CENTERED OVER THE SOUTHWESTERN U.S.  THAT RIDGE IS FORECAST BY THE
 GLOBAL MODELS TO BUILD WESTWARD OVER THE EASTERN PACIFIC AND TURN
 THE WEAKENING TROPICAL CYCLONE TOWARD THE WEST IN ABOUT 24 HOURS. 
 THE EVENTUAL REMNANT LOW IS ANTICIPATED TO CONTINUE WESTWARD WITH
 THE LOW-LEVEL FLOW ALONG ABOUT 22N...AS GENERALLY AGREED UPON BY
 THE MODELS THAT RETAIN A CIRCULATION...SUCH AS THE GFDL AND NOGAPS.
