Tropical Storm Rose Discussion Number   9

Rose has lost organization over the past several hours.  Satellite
images show a fully exposed low-level center with only a small area
of deep convection lingering in the southeastern quadrant.  The
Dvorak classifications have decreased, and the initial intensity is
nudged downward to 40 kt.

Rose is moving northwestward at 17 kt.  This general heading but
with a decrease in forward speed is expected during the next couple
of days as the storm is steered by the flow on the southwest side of
a low- to mid-level ridge.  By late this week and over the weekend,
a sharp turn to the north and then the northeast is expected as
Rose becomes embedded in the flow on the south side of a broad
deep-layer trough. Although there is some spread in the guidance,
the models all show the same general theme.  The NHC track forecast
lies near the middle of the guidance envelope.

The environment is expected to become increasingly unfavorable for
Rose during the next several days with westerly shear increasing and
dry air expected to wrap into the circulation.  These conditions
should promote a weakening trend, and the cyclone is forecast to
become a remnant low by the weekend when it should be over cooler
waters and in an environment of more than 30 kt of shear.  Some of
the models suggest that Rose could become a remnant low or open into
a trough sooner than that, and if the current trend continues that
is a distinct possibility.  The new forecast is largely an update of
the previous one, but does show the storm becoming a remnant low a
day earlier.
