Rebekah continues to have a small band of moderate-to-deep
convection around the center, although the overall cloud pattern is
becoming stretched from northeast to southwest.  The initial wind
speed is kept at 40 kt.  All of the models keep stretching Rebekah
out overnight and show it degenerating into a trough within 24 h
while it moves eastward.  A convergent environment and the cyclone's
movement over cool waters are expected to offset any cooling aloft
which would promote convection.

Since Rebekah is not expected to be a tropical or subtropical
cyclone near the Azores, hazard information can be found in regular
products issued by the Portuguese Institute for the Sea and
Atmosphere (IPMA) for those islands at
