Tropical Depression Victor Discussion Number  20

Strong southerly vertical wind shear in excess of 25 kt along with 
entrainment of very dry mid-level air (less than 40 percent relative
humidity) has continued to take its toll on Victor. Deep convection 
has been weakening during the past couple of hours and is now 
displaced more than 100 nmi north and northeast of the elongated 
low-level center. The shear is forecast by the global models to 
increase to more than 30 kt in the next 6-12 hours, while the 
surrounding environment becomes drier and more stable. As a result, 
the cyclone is forecast to degenerate into a remnant low later today 
and likely dissipate by Tuesday, if not sooner. 

Victor is moving west-northwestward or 300/12 kt, and this general 
motion is expected to continue through today based on the latest 
NHC model guidance. As a result, no significant changes were made 
to the previous track forecast.
