 TROPICAL DEPRESSION PRISCILLA DISCUSSION NUMBER   9
 NWS NATIONAL HURRICANE CENTER MIAMI FL       EP162013
 200 AM PDT WED OCT 16 2013
  
 CONVECTION CONTINUES TO PULSE NEAR AND TO THE WEST OF THE CENTER.
 HOWEVER...THE OVERALL CONVECTIVE PATTERN HAS CHANGED LITTLE OVER
 THE PAST 12H...SO THE INITIAL INTENSITY REMAINS UNCHANGED AT 30
 KT...WHICH IS AN AVERAGE OF SATELLITE INTENSITY ESTIMATES OF 35 KT
 FROM UW-CIMSS ADT...30 KT FROM TAFB...AND 25 KT FROM SAB.
  
 PASSIVE MICROWAVE FIXES INDICATE THAT PRISCILLA IS STILL MOVING AT
 290/06 KT. THE CYCLONE IS EXPECTED TO MOVE WEST-NORTHWESTWARD FOR
 THE NEXT 24H OR SO DUE TO A DEEP-LAYER RIDGE SITUATED TO THE NORTH
 AND EAST OF PRISCILLA. AS THE CYCLONE GRADUALLY WEAKENS AND BECOMES
 A VERTICALLY SHALLOW REMNANT LOW...A TURN TOWARD THE WEST IS
 FORECAST BY 36H...FOLLOWED BY A WEST-SOUTHWESTWARD MOTION AT 48H
 AND BEYOND AS THE WEAKENED SYSTEM GETS STEERED BY THE LOW-LEVEL
 NORTHEASTERLY TRADE WIND FLOW. THE NHC TRACK FORECAST IS SIMILAR TO
 THE PREVIOUS ADVISORY AND THE MULTI-MODEL CONSENSUS TVCE.
  
 THE SHEAR IS FORECAST TO REMAIN LOW FOR THE NEXT 12-18H WHILE
 PRISCILLA REMAINS OVER MARGINALLY WARM SSTS. HOWEVER...BY 24H AND
 BEYOND...THE CYCLONE WILL BE MOVING INTO A REGION OF MODERATE
 SOUTHWESTERLY WIND SHEAR AND DRIER MID-LEVEL AIR...WHILE ALSO
 MOVING OVER SUB-26C SSTS. THIS COMBINATION OF UNFAVORABLE
 CONDITIONS SHOULD CAUSE PRISCILLA TO WEAKEN AND DEGENERATE INTO A
 REMNANT LOW BY 36H AND DISSIPATE AFTER 72H...IF NOT SOONER.
