The tropical disturbance that we've been watching for a few days 
had a burst of vigorous deep convection overnight. Overnight 
microwave passes and satellite imagery over the last 24 hours have 
shown increased organization at times in the convective banding. The 
deep convection now appears to be persistent and organized enough 
to classify this system as a tropical depression. A blend of 
satellite intensity estimates from TAFB, SAB, and CPHC suggest 
initiating advisories for this system with an intensity of 25 kt. 
More recently, visible satellite imagery is showing the low level 
center has emerged from the higher clouds associated with the 
UW-CIMSS shear analysis indicates that Tropical Depression 12E is 
embedded within the southern periphery of a belt of stronger 
westerly shear, associated with the subtropical jet stream to the 
north. The depression is not likely to last long, as global models 
indicate the subtropical jet will sag south a bit over the next 
couple of days, maintaining westerly shear over the system. 
Simulated satellite imagery from the global models suggests that 
occasional pulses of deep convection may continue for a day or so 
as the system is steered toward the west-southwest by the trade 
wind flow to the south of a strengthening subtropical ridge. The 
track forecast most closely follows the TVCN until the system 
becomes a remnant low far to the east-southeast of Hawaii.
