Ambiguities From An 0200 Utc Ascat Pass Suggest That There Are Very Little...If Any...Northerly Winds On The West Side Of The
Circulation. Gabrielle Has Accelerated Toward The North-Northeast
Since That Time...Reducing The Likelihood That North Winds Are
Present. However...A Large Burst Of Convection During The Past 6
Hours At Least Makes It Plausible That The Circulation Remains
Closed...And So Gabrielle Is Being Held As A 30 Kt Tropical
Depression For This Advisory. A Slight Increase In The Maximum
Winds Is Possible Today Due To Baroclinic Processes.

The Forward Speed Of Gabrielle Has Increased During The Past Few
Hours...And The Initial Motion Estimate Is Now 020/20. All Of The
Dynamical Models Suggest That The Depression Will Continue To
Accelerate Toward The North-Northeast While It Interacts With A
Deep-Layer Trough Located Over The Eastern United States And Canada. The Guidance Suggests That Gabrielle Will Open Up Into
A Trough Later Today...Although The Official Forecast Conservatively Shows A 12-Hour Forecast Point. After That...Gabrielle Or Its Remnants Should Get Absorbed By An Approaching Cold Front.
