Tropical Storm Rose Discussion Number  10
NWS National Hurricane Center Miami FL       AL172021
1100 AM AST Tue Sep 21 2021

The center of Rose remains exposed this morning on satellite 
imagery, located about a degree west of a small area of deep 
convection, with a smaller low-level swirl rotating around the 
larger mean circulation.  A pair of recent scatterometer passes 
indicated winds of only 30-35 kt, so the initial intensity is 
reduced to 35 kt on this advisory.  

The storm's environment is no bed of roses during the next several 
days, with persistent moderate westerly or northwesterly shear, 
plentiful dry air aloft and only marginally warm waters.  Almost 
all of the guidance shows Rose decaying into a tropical depression 
this evening, and the new forecast is decreased from the previous 
one, especially in the near term. A continuation of this hostile 
environment should cause further weakening, and Rose is expected to 
be pushing up daisies in 3 days or less, degenerating into a weak 
remnant low and dissipating by the end of the forecast.

Rose is moving more slowly to the northwest this morning at about 12 
kt.  The storm should gradually turn northward during the next 
couple of days around the southwestern side of a subtropical ridge. 
Thereafter, a mid-latitude trough is anticipated to steer Rose 
faster to the northeast or east-northeast by the weekend, which 
should cause the weak tropical cyclone to open up into a trough 
towards the end of the forecast.  While there are some speed 
differences among the models, the latest guidance suite is similar 
to the last forecast, so no significant changes were made to the NHC 
track prediction.
