...KIKO STRUGGLING TO PRODUCE SIGNIFICANT THUNDERSTORM ACTIVITY...


SUMMARY OF 500 PM HST...0300 UTC...INFORMATION
----------------------------------------------
LOCATION...17.5N 132.5W
ABOUT 1510 MI...2430 KM W OF THE SOUTHERN TIP OF BAJA CALIFORNIA
MAXIMUM SUSTAINED WINDS...50 MPH...85 KM/H
PRESENT MOVEMENT...WSW OR 240 DEGREES AT 8 MPH...13 KM/H
MINIMUM CENTRAL PRESSURE...1003 MB...29.62 INCHES


WATCHES AND WARNINGS
--------------------
There are no coastal watches or warnings in effect.


DISCUSSION AND OUTLOOK
----------------------
At 500 PM HST (0300 UTC), the center of Tropical Storm Kiko was
located near latitude 17.5 North, longitude 132.5 West.  Kiko is
moving toward the west-southwest near 8 mph (13 km/h).  A motion
toward the southwest or west-southwest is forecast to occur through
Sunday night, followed by a westward to northwestward motion Monday
and Tuesday.

Maximum sustained winds are near 50 mph (85 km/h) with higher gusts.
Some fluctuations in intensity are expected during the next several
days.

Tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 60 miles (95 km)
from the center.

The estimated minimum central pressure is 1003 mb (29.62 inches).


HAZARDS AFFECTING LAND
----------------------
None.


NEXT ADVISORY

Kiko is only producing a relatively small patch of deep convection
to the northeast of its center, the result of continued
southwesterly shear and the cyclone moving through what appears to
be a stable environment.  The initial intensity is held at 45 kt
based on the earlier ASCAT data, but it's possible the maximum
winds have decreased since then.  Given Kiko's structure and its
environment, some weakening is expected during the next day or so.
However, the cyclone is moving southwestward, toward slightly
warmer waters, and this could allow for some restrengthening in
36-48 hours, which is shown by many of the intensity models.
Another round of shear and cooler waters should lead to weakening
after 48 hours, and Kiko is expected to degenerate into a remnant
low by day 5, if not sooner.

Kiko is moving a little faster toward the west-southwest, or 240/7
kt.  An elongated mid- to upper-level trough extending from
California to near the Hawaiian Islands is digging southward, which
is forcing the subtropical ridge--and Kiko--to lose latitude during
the next 36 hours.  After that time, the western portion of the
trough is forecast to cut off east of the Hawaiian Islands, causing
Kiko to turn sharply northwestward on days 2-4.  Once a remnant low,
Kiko is then expected to be steered by lower-level flow, causing it
to turn back to the southwest.  Only small adjustments to the NHC
track forecast were made on this cycle, and it still depicts a
wave-like trajectory through day 5, as has been the case for
several days.
