RITA HAS CONTINUED TO WEAKEN AS IT MOVES FARTHER INLAND. DOPPLER
RADAR INDICATE THAT WINDS ARE ABOUT 80 TO 90 KNOTS AT ABOUT 5000
FEET. THIS WOULD SUPPORT SUSTAINED WINDS OF 65 KNOTS AT THE SURFACE
BUT MUCH HIGHER GUSTS. NOW THAT THE CORE OF RITA IS WELL INLAND
WEAKENING SHOULD CONTINUE AS INDICATED BY DECAY SHIPS MODEL.

RITA IS MOVING TOWARD THE NORTH OR 350 DEGREES AT 10 KNOTS. STEERING
CURRENTS ARE FORECAST TO BECOME VERY LIGHT SO ONLY A SMALL EASTWARD
DRIFT IS ANTICIPATED BEYOND 24 HOURS. RITA SHOULD PRODUCE
TORRENTIAL RAIN AS IT DRIFTS EASTWARD.
