Georgette is producing minimal deep convection this morning with 
very little organization. Based on its current lack of organization, 
it could become post-tropical at almost any time. The intitial 
intensity of 30 kt is based primarily on continuity, though it does 
fall in the range between the latest TAFB Final-T and Current 
Intensity estimates. Various dynamical models suggest the cyclone 
will weaken and become post tropical within a day, which makes sense 
given it is moving into a drier, more stable region. Once Georgette 
becomes post-tropical, it should continue to slowly spin down and 
ultimately open into a trough within about 60 h. No changes of note 
were made to the official intensity forecast.

The initial motion is estimated at 020/9kt, a little faster than 
previously forecast. A low-level ridge is expected to build to the 
northeast of Georgette today, which should cause the cyclone or its 
remnants to turn gradually westward over the next day and a half. 
The NHC track forecast has been shifted to the north, primarily due 
to Georgette's recent faster north-northeastward motion.
