 TROPICAL STORM ENRIQUE DISCUSSION NUMBER  10
 NWS NATIONAL HURRICANE CENTER MIAMI FL       EP062015
 200 PM PDT TUE JUL 14 2015
 
 While Enrique moved over a tongue of warm water, the cloud pattern
 became a little better organized. It now consists of a small central
 dense overcast surrounded by a cyclonically curved convective band.
 The upper-level outflow remains well defined primarily on the
 western semicircle.  A recent ASCAT pass indicate that the winds are
 at least 40 kt, and since Dvorak T-numbers from all agencies have
 increased to T3.0, the initial intensity is now 45 kt.
 
 In about 12 to 24 hours, the circulation will be over cooler
 waters, and gradual weakening should begin. The shear is forecast
 to increase, adding to the weakening process, and Enrique should
 become a remnant low in 3 days or sooner.
 
 Enrique is moving toward the west-northwest or 300 degrees at 8
 kt, steered by the flow to the south of a narrow mid-level ridge.
 Global models indicate that in about 3 days, the steering currents
 will collapse due to the approach of the larger circulation of
 Dolores, and most likely Enrique will meander until dissipation.
 This NHC track is consistent with the consensus of the GFS and the
 ECMWF models primarily during the next 2 to 3 days.
