      ble along its rain bands...with isolated accumulations of up to 300 mm near
      the center of 22W. Residents in low-lying areas & steep slopes must remain
      alert & seek evacuation for possible life-threatening flash floods, mud-

      ^TROPICAL DEPRESSION 22W HAS WEAKENED OVER THE PAST 06 HOURS
      IN RESPONSE TO INCREASING VERTICAL WIND SHEAR AND LAND INTERACTION.
      THIS WEAKENING HAS RESULTED IN A LOWERING OF THE STEERING LEVEL.
      CLOSE EXAMINATION OF RECENTLY-OBTAINED SATELLITE IMAGERY INDICATES
      THAT THE SYSTEM HAS TURNED SOUTHWESTWARD OVER THE PAST 12 HOURS,
      NECESSITATING AN UPDATE TO THE PRIOR STORM TRACK AND A CONSEQUENT
      SHIFT IN THE FORECAST TRACK PHILOSOPHY
