What makes you think it will form into a tropical cyclone? It doesn't appear to me to have enough convection to make it.

I think it might just squeeze in a brief TS or subtropical storm because of its rotation. However after diurnal maximum tomorrow, it may not have enough convective support to do much before conditions go hostile. Right now, it strongly reminds me of Melissa on her first night when she struggled with convection, but had a decent circulation. But this is just my personal opinion. :D

Diurnal maximum helped it a little bit, but I cannot tell since there isn't any update as yet on the system. I suppose it is still not a tropical storm.

I'm a bit surprised now that it isn't being upgraded.

It has a decent structure. I'd lean more towards subtropical than tropical.

Well its winds have weakened to 45 knots, which makes me think this is now less likely to develop.

many transitioning systems weaken slightly as they transition, as they cease to draw their energy from baroclinic sources.

30%/30%

SPECIAL TROPICAL WEATHER OUTLOOK
NWS NATIONAL HURRICANE CENTER MIAMI FL
1250 PM EST THU DEC 5 2013

FOR THE NORTH ATLANTIC...CARIBBEAN SEA AND THE GULF OF MEXICO...

SHOWER AND THUNDERSTORM ACTIVITY HAS BECOME A LITTLE MORE
CONCENTRATED IN ASSOCIATION WITH A NON-TROPICAL AREA OF LOW
PRESSURE CENTERED ABOUT 300 MILES SOUTH OF THE AZORES. THIS LOW IS
PRODUCING GALE-FORCE WINDS...AND COULD ACQUIRE SOME SUBTROPICAL
CHARACTERISTICS BEFORE WEAKENING AS IT BEGINS TO MOVE NORTHWARD ON
FRIDAY. THIS SYSTEM HAS A MEDIUM CHANCE...30 PERCENT...OF BECOMING
A SUBTROPICAL OR TROPICAL CYCLONE DURING THE NEXT 48 HOURS...AND A
MEDIUM CHANCE...30 PERCENT...OF BECOMING A SUBTROPICAL OR TROPICAL
CYCLONE DURING THE NEXT FIVE DAYS.

Looks decent enough for classification to me. Shallow warm core with no fronts attached and shallow convection near and over the center. But what do I know.

I'd suspect that if this was a subtropical or tropical storm at all, it was probably at that status earlier today or yesterday, but since then, the winds have weakened from 50 knots to 40 knots, the structure, in my opinion, has deteriorated, and the pressure has risen from 995 mbar to 999 mbar.

Models are in consensus supporting this system to intensify.

convection, albeit somewhat shallow, is continuing to at very least maintain itself around the system, and has a full half now with decent coverage of consistent convection as well as a tiny intermittent CDO.
