TROPICAL DEPRESSION JOHN DISCUSSION NUMBER   8
NWS NATIONAL HURRICANE CENTER MIAMI FL       EP102012
800 AM PDT TUE SEP 04 2012
 
DEEP CONVECTION ASSOCIATED WITH JOHN DISSIPATED AROUND 0600 UTC
AND THE CYCLONE HAS BECOME A SWIRL OF LOW- TO MID-LEVEL CLOUDS.
IT IS DOUBTFUL THAT ORGANIZED DEEP CONVECTION WILL REFORM AND
JOHN IS LIKELY TO BE DECLARED A POST-TROPICAL REMNANT LOW THIS
AFTERNOON.  THE INITIAL INTENSITY REMAINS 30 KT...AND IS BASED ON A
COUPLE OF SHIP OBSERVATIONS OF AROUND 25 KT OVER THE OUTER PORTION
OF THE CIRCULATION DURING THE PAST SEVERAL HOURS.  THE CYCLONE
SHOULD CONTINUE TO GRADUALLY WEAKEN DURING THE NEXT FEW DAYS AS IT
MOVES OVER PROGRESSIVELY COOLER WATER.
 
THE INITIAL MOTION IS 315/12.  JOHN SHOULD CONTINUE MOVING
NORTHWESTWARD AROUND THE WESTERN PORTION OF A WEAKENING SUBTROPICAL
RIDGE DURING THE NEXT COUPLE OF DAYS.
