Tropical Cyclone 13S (Gael) Expected to Intensify
More recently, convection has begun to rebuild near a partially-exposed low level circulation, bringing all reporting fix agencies back to a final-T of 25 or 35 knots.
Vertical windshear continues to bias convection towards the northwest quadrant and has limited significant intensity gains over the past 12 hours.
Maximum significant wave height is 13 feet.
The cyclone ie forecast to track generally west to southwestward with the low to mid-level subtropical flow, while making modest intensity gains, at least initially.
Beyond 24 hours, upper level conditions are expected to improve considerably as the upper level winds relax near the subtropical ridge axis, allowing for more aggressive intensification.
