Current 0445Z imagery is showing a nice, consolidated CDO. Dvorak T numbers haven't updated since 29/2345Z. At that time Aletta was holding a 2.5 intensity.
0445Z RBG shows a moderate amount of lightning in the CDO area. However, the WV image from the same time is showing a N to S elongated, double convective cluster, similar to a solid figure 8.
NW through SW convective band is disconnected from the main CDO, and appears as an outflow boundary. Possibly the "death outflow" in the storms dying stage.
The few, weak bands that are connected are in the NE through SE Quadrant.
