 DISCUSSION AND OUTLOOK ---------------------- At 1100 AM AST (1500 UTC), the center of Tropical Depression Joyce was located near latitude 34.7 North, longitude 34.3 West. The depression is moving toward the east-northeast near 18 mph (30 km/h), and this motion is expected to continue through tonight. After that time, the cyclone should slow down and turn toward the southeast and then the southwest away from the Azores.
Maximum sustained winds have decreased to near 35 mph (55 km/h) with higher gusts.  Gradual weakening is expected, and Joyce could degenerate into a trough or a remnant low within the next couple of days.
The estimated minimum central pressure is 1005 mb (29.68 inches).
 HAZARDS AFFECTING LAND ---------------------- None
 NEXT ADVISORY ------------- Next complete advisory at 500 PM AST.
