 SINCE THIS MORNING...THE CENTER OF JULIA HAS BECOME EXPOSED TO THE
 NORTHWEST OF A SMALL AREA OF DEEP CONVECTION.  AMSU AND ASCAT
 ESTIMATES FROM AROUND 1200 UTC SUPPORTED AN INTENSITY OF 45 KT...SO
 THE INITIAL INTENSITY IS LOWERED TO 40 KT NOW THAT THE CYCLONE IS
 MORE STRONGLY SHEARED.  THIS IS ALSO SUPPORTED BY DECREASING
 T-NUMBERS.  THE STATISTICAL MODELS STILL SHOW QUICKER WEAKENING
 THAN THE DYNAMICAL MODELS...AND THE OFFICIAL FORECAST REMAINS NEAR
 THE INTENSITY CONSENSUS.  JULIA WILL BE BATTLING VERY STRONG
 NORTHWESTERLY SHEAR...BUT IT SHOULD TAKE SOME TIME FOR THE
 CIRCULATION TO SPIN DOWN.  THE CYCLONE IS EXPECTED TO BECOME A
 REMNANT LOW IN ABOUT 36 HOURS AND THEN DISSIPATE WITHIN THE
 SOUTHWESTERLY FLOW EAST OF IGOR IN 48 HOURS.
  
 AFTER TAKING A SUDDEN AND QUICK JUMP TO THE EAST-NORTHEAST THIS
 MORNING...JULIA HAS SETTLED ON A MOTION OF ABOUT 50 DEGREES AT 12
 KT.  THE UKMET...GFDL...AND GFDN SEEM TO UNREALISTICALLY TURN JULIA
 TOWARD THE NORTHWEST OR NORTH AFTER 24 HOURS...SO THE NHC TRACK
 FORECAST IS BASED ON A BLEND OF THE OTHER MAJOR DYNAMICAL MODELS. 
 THIS TRACK REMAINS ON THE SOUTHERN SIDE OF THE GUIDANCE ENVELOPE.
