As early as midday Tuesday, I noticed what appeared to be a front coming off the storm, indicating that Dolly was losing her tropical characteristics. Well, NHC issued the 25th and final advisory on Dolly this morning as she was absorbed by a front. At 15Z the pressure was estimated at 1009mb and a center could barely be discerned. Edouard has remained a TS in the face of 25kt northwesterly shear. The convection has actually become more centralized, but not enough to cover the center itself. A Tropical Storm Warning is in effect for much of the northeastern Florida peninsula and some of extreme southern Georgia. He is expected to pass over the peninsula from Flagler Beach on Thursday morning to Homosassa Springs on Friday morning (weakening to a TD), then re-enter the Gulf (re-intensifying back to a TS). At 18Z today, TS Edouard was located at 29.8N 80.5W and meandering westward at 3kts. Winds are still 35kts and the pressure is up to 1009mb.
