Tropical Depression Twelve Discussion Number 9
NWS National Hurricane Center Miami FL AL122022
500 PM AST Thu Oct 06 2022

By definition, the depression may no longer be considered a tropical
cyclone. The current convection can not really be considered
organized, and consists of a couple of updrafts with an enhanced
cirrus canopy due to about 40 kt of west-southwesterly shear. This
lack of organized deep convection with the depression has persisted
since around 10 UTC this morning. An earlier scatterometer overpass
showed winds no higher than 25 kt near the circulation. Between
this data and the latest Dvorak intensity estimates, the initial
advisory intensity has been lowered to 25 kt. The very strong shear
is expected to continue to impact the depression for the foreseeable
future while the environmental relative humidity continues to
decrease. Therefore, the system should be able to be declared a
remnant low tonight, if there is no evidence that the system has
opened up into a trough before that time. The NHC intensity
forecast was lowered due to the weaker initial intensity.

The depression is moving west-northwestward at about 13 kt. A turn
to the west is expected by tonight while the system moves in the
low-level flow to the south a subtropical ridge. The NHC track
forecast is essentially unchanged from the previous one and is near
the multi-model consensus tracks.
