TROPICAL STORM LISA DISCUSSION NUMBER 47

NWS TPC/NATIONAL HURRICANE CENTER MIAMI FL

11 PM EDT THU SEP 30 2004

 

CONVENTIONAL AND MICROWAVE SATELLITE IMAGERY INDICATE THAT LIKELY

HAS REMAINED JUST BELOW HURRICANE STRENGTH. A CLOSED LOW-LEVEL EYE

FEATURE WAS APPARENT IN 30/2101Z TRMM AND 01/0020Z SSMI OVERPASSES

...AND A BANDING EYE FEATURE HAS BEEN TRYING TO DEVELOP IN VISIBLE

AND INFRARED IMAGERY FOR THE PAST 9 HOURS. IN ADDITION...A 30/2117Z

UW-CIMSS AMSU OVERPASS INDICATED A PRESSURE ESTIMATE OF 989.6 MB.

THEREFORE...THE PRESSURE AND INTENSITY WILL REMAIN THE SAME AT 990

MB AND 60 KT...RESPECTIVELY...AS IN THE PREVIOUS ADVISORY.

 

THE INITIAL MOTION ESTIMATE IS 005/10. THE LAST 9 HOURS OF

CONVENTIONAL AND MICROWAVE SATELLITE FIX POSITIONS INDICATE THAT

LISA HAS MADE THE TURN TOWARD THE NORTH. A GRADUAL TURN TOWARD THE

NORTH-NORTHEAST AND EVENTUALLY TO THE NORTHEAST IS EXPECTED TO

OCCUR IN THE 12-24 TIME PERIOD AS AN APPROACHING SHORTWAVE PICKS UP

THE CYCLONE. BY 36 HOURS...LISA IS EXPECTED TO ACCELERATE AS THE

CYCLONE BEGINS TO TRANSITION OVER TO AN EXTRATROPICAL LOW...OR

POSSIBLY BECOME ABSORBED BY A LARGER EXTRATROPICAL CYCLONE.

 

LISA IS EXPECTED TO REMAIN IN FAVORABLE VERTICAL SHEAR CONDITIONS OF

5-10 KT FOR THE NEXT 24 HOURS...EVEN THOUGH THE CYCLONE WILL BE

MOVING OVER 24-25C SSTS. AS MENTIONED IN THE PREVIOUS

DISCUSSION...ENOUGH MODERATE CONVECTION MAY WRAP AROUND THE CENTER

LATER TONIGHT TO FINALLY CLOSE OFF AN EYE IN THE MID- AND

UPPER-LEVELS...ALLOWING LISA TO REACH MINIMAL HURRICANE STRENGTH.

AFTER 24 HOURS...INCREASING WESTERLY VERTICAL SHEAR AND MUCH COOLER

WATER SHOULD BRING ABOUT A WEAKENING TREND. THE OFFICIAL FORECAST

IS A LITTLE LOWER THAN THE SHIPS AND GFDL INTENSITY MODELS WHICH

BRING LISA TO 63 KT AND 69 KT IN 24 HOURS...RESPECTIVELY.

 

FORECASTER STEWART

 

FORECAST POSITIONS AND MAX WINDS

 

INITIAL 01/0300Z 34.6N 47.7W 60 KT
