DISCUSSION
-----------------------------------
Laura has continued to move inland over west-central Louisiana this
morning.  Satellite and radar imagery has shown a gradual filling of
the eye, and a reduction in Doppler velocities in the northeastern
eyewall. The initial intensity is set at 65 kt, based on a reduction
of the Doppler velocities and the typical filling rate of inland
hurricanes.  The highest wind gusts at official observing sites
within the past few hours has been at Alexandria, Louisiana, where a
gust to 75 kt has been reported. Laura will continue to rapidly weaken today while it moves farther
inland.  The cyclone will become a tropical storm this afternoon and
is expected to weaken to a tropical depression tonight or early
Friday.  Although Laura is weakening, strong wind gusts are likely
to spread over northern Louisiana and Arkansas into this evening.
