DISCUSSION AND 48-HOUR OUTLOOK
------------------------------
At 800 AM PDT (1500 UTC), the center of Tropical Storm Kenneth was
located near latitude 24.6 North, longitude 135.1 West. Kenneth is
moving toward the north-northwest near 12 mph (19 km/h) and this
general direction of motion with a gradual decrease in forward speed
is expected over the next couple of days.

Maximum sustained winds have decreased to near 40 mph (65 km/h) with
higher gusts. Continued weakening is forecast during the next 48
hours, and Kenneth is likely to become a post-tropical cyclone by
tonight.

Tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 80 miles (130 km)
from the center.

The estimated minimum central pressure is 1006 mb (29.71 inches).

Tropical Storm Kenneth Discussion Number  21
NWS National Hurricane Center Miami FL       EP132017
800 AM PDT Wed Aug 23 2017

Practically all of Kenneth's deep convection has dissipated while
the system traverses SSTs near 23 deg C.  Using a blend of
subjective and objective Dvorak intensity estimates yields a
current intensity of 35 kt.  The cyclone is likely to continue to
weaken due to cool waters and strong south-southwesterly shear
associated with a broad upper-level trough to its west.  Kenneth
should become a post-tropical cyclone in 12 to 24 hours or sooner.

The latest center fixes indicate that the motion has bent a little
to the left and is now around 330/10 kt.  Kenneth or the post-
tropical cyclone should continue to move through a break in the
subtropical ridge on a generally north-northwestward heading with
some deceleration over the next couple of days.  Later in the
forecast period, when the cyclone is likely to be very weak and
shallow, a turn toward the northwest is expected following the
low-level flow. The official track forecast is close to the latest
HFIP Corrected Consensus prediction.
