THE LOW- AND MID-LEVEL CENTERS OF THE TROPICAL CYCLONE ARE BEGINNING
TO BECOME DETACHED...AND MOST OF THE DEEP CONVECTION IS NOW LOCATED
IN THE EASTERN SEMICIRCLE. THE CIRCULATION CONTINUES TO BE VERY
TIGHT AND WINDS ARE PROBABLY STILL NEAR 45 KNOTS. IN FACT...THAT
INTENSITY IS SUPPORTED BY DVORAK CLASSIFICATIONS. THE CYCLONE IS
SURROUNDED BY DRY AIR...AS INDICATED BY WATER VAPOR IMAGES...AND IS
MOVING OVER INCREASINGLY COOLER WATERS. THE OFFICIAL FORECAST CALLS
FOR WEAKENING AND EMILIA IS EXPECTED TO BECOME A POST-TROPICAL
REMNANT LOW BY SUNDAY NIGHT OR MONDAY.
 
EMILIA IS EXPECTED TO BE A SHALLOW SYSTEM AND WELL EMBEDDED WITHIN
THE LOW-LEVEL TROPICAL TRADE WINDS. THEREFORE...A GENERAL TRACK
TOWARD THE WEST AT ABOUT 12 TO 14 KNOTS IS ANTICIPATED THROUGH THE
FORECAST PERIOD.
