 Tropical Storm John Discussion Number  19
 NWS National Hurricane Center Miami FL       EP122018
 200 AM PDT Fri Aug 10 2018
 
 Convection associated with John has decreased significantly during
 the past several hours as the cyclone moves over progressively
 cooler water.  Recent scatterometer data suggests that the maximum
 sustained winds have decreased to near 40 kt.  Continued weakening
 is forecast as John moves over even colder water, and the system is
 now forecast to weaken to a depression in less than 24 h and to a
 remnant low in 24-36 h.  After that, the remnant low will gradually
 spin down until it dissipates early next week.
 
 The initial motion is now 310/9.  This motion should continue with
 a decrease in forward speed during the next couple of days,
 followed by a turn toward the north before the system dissipates.
 The new forecast track is near the consensus models through 48 h
 and is a little to the west of them from 48-72 h.
 
 Swells associated with John continue to affect portions of the coast
 of the Baja California peninsula and are beginning to reach portions
 of the southern California coast. These swells could cause
 life-threatening surf and rip current conditions. Please consult
 products from your local weather office.
