leave it to avila to forecast weakening to a tropical depression. why i outta..

in all seriousness, avila did a fantastic job on his last couple discussions....nailing intensity trends and possibilities. he is...imo...the best nhc forecaster as he doesnt get sucked into the cheerleading or fear of talking about reality instead of just maintaining previous intensities.....i know all this makes him the villain here....but i find it refreshing.
