 Tropical Storm Fabio Discussion Number  23
 NWS National Hurricane Center Miami FL       EP072018
 200 AM PDT Fri Jul 06 2018
 
 The remaining deep convection associated with Fabio has dissipated
 overnight and the system now consists of a swirl of low- to
 mid-level clouds.  Although the convection has waned, a 0518 UTC
 ASCAT pass indicated a large area of 30-35 kt winds primarily over
 the northern portion of the circulation so the initial intensity
 remains 35 kt for this advisory.  The cyclone will be moving over
 SSTs below 20C very soon and into a more stable environment.  As a
 result, organized deep convection is not likely to redevelop and
 the cyclone is forecast to become a remnant low later today and
 continue to gradually spin down over the next 2-3 days. The global
 models indicate that the remnant low will degenerate into a trough
 of low pressure in a little more than 3 days, and this is reflected
 in the NHC forecast.
 
 The ASCAT pass suggests that Fabio has moved more westward than
 west-northwestward overnight, but a general west-northwestward
 motion is anticipated over the next day or so.  As the remnant low
 weakens it should turn more toward the west before dissipation
 occurs. The new NHC forecast is slightly south of the previous
 official forecast, and is close to the various consensus aids.
 
 Although Fabio is weakening, swells generated by the cyclone will
 affect the coasts of southern California and the Baja California
 Peninsula for the next day or so.
