Georgette continues to hang on to tropical cyclone status.  Small 
bursts of convection persist to the southwest of the partially 
exposed low-level center.  Since the convective organization has not 
changed, the initial intensity remains at 30 kts, slightly below the 
subjective and objective satellite intensity estimates.  Moderate 
northeasterly to northerly shear is expected over the next few days. 
This vertical wind shear combined with the drier surrounding 
environment and gradually cooling sea surface temperatures are 
likely to cause Georgette to become a remnant low in a day or two.  
There were no updates to the intensity forecast this cycle.

The system is moving north-northeastward at about 6 kt into the 
weakness in the subtropical ridge caused by Post-Tropical Cyclone 
Frank.  Within about a day, the low-level ridge should begin 
building back and turn Georgette westward as well as increase its 
forward speed.  The NHC track forecast is very similar to the 
previous track prediction and close to the various consensus model
