 Hurricane Fabio Discussion Number  11
 NWS National Hurricane Center Miami FL       EP072018
 300 AM MDT Tue Jul 03 2018
 
 The eye has been observed intermittently on conventional imagery
 during the past few hours, and the convection surrounding the
 eye has not changed much. In fact, Dvorak T-numbers from both TAFB
 and SAB are the same as 6 hours ago, so we are keeping the same
 initial intensity of 80 kt in this advisory.
 
 Although Fabio has not intensified since the last advisory, all the
 factors are favorable for the hurricane to do so. Consequently, the
 NHC forecast still shows a peak intensity of 100 kt within the next
 24 hours. After that time, a large portion of the circulation will
 be affected by cooler waters, and gradual weakening should begin.
 None of the models bring Fabio to 100 kt any more in the 06 UTC run,
 but they all agree in a weakening trend after 24 hours.
 
 Fabio is moving toward the west-northwest or 295 degrees at 13 kt.
 Since the steering pattern is well established, the track forecast
 is relatively straightforward.  The hurricane is expected to
 continue moving toward the west-northwest during the next several
 days steered by the flow around a persistent subtropical ridge to
 the north.  The NHC forecast is in the middle of the very tightly
 packed guidance envelope, and also leaning toward the HFIP Corrected
 Consensus HCCA model.
