Subtropical Storm Rebekah Discussion Number   6

Rebekah's cloud pattern consists of a tight swirl of low clouds,
but most of the deep convection vanished a few hours ago. A recent
ASCAT pass still shows a well defined circulation with winds
of 35 kt. Consequently, the initial intensity has been lowered to
35 kt in this advisory. Assuming that the convection, as
anticipated does not return, Rebekah will become post-tropical
cyclone soon and will likely dissipate in 24 hours or sooner.  The
cyclone is forecast to move eastward with the mid-latitude flow and
as indicated by track models.
