TROPICAL STORM LISA DISCUSSION NUMBER 41

NWS TPC/NATIONAL HURRICANE CENTER MIAMI FL

11 AM EDT WED SEP 29 2004

 

SATELLITE IMAGERY REVEALS THAT LISA HAS BECOME BETTER ORGANIZED

DURING THE MORNING AS INDICATED BY A DISTINCT CYCLONICALLY CURVED

CONVECTIVE CLOUD BAND...AND BETTER DEFINED CIRRUS OUTFLOW PATTERN

OVER THE NORTHERN SEMICIRCLE. THE APPEARANCE OF A DEVELOPING EYE

TYPE FEATURE FURTHER SUGGESTS THAT LISA IS BECOMING STRONGER.

HOWEVER...DVORAK SATELLITE ESTIMATES AT 12Z FROM TAFB WHERE 3.5 AND

3.0 FROM SAB. BASED ON THIS INFORMATION WILL KEEP THE INITIAL

INTENSITY AT 60 KT. OBSERVATIONS OF 45 KNOTS FROM SHIP ZCGH LOCATED

ABOUT 100 NM SW OF THE CENTER AND 30 KNOTS FROM SHIP FQFL ABOUT 220

NM NE OF THE CENTER OF LISA WERE USED TO ADJUST THE 34-KNOT WIND

RADII.

 

INITIAL MOTION ESTIMATE IS 360/10. AN UPPER LEVEL LOW TO THE

SOUTHWEST OF LISA WILL HELP REDUCE SHEAR IN 12 HOURS ALLOWING

FOR LISA TO STRENGTHEN TO A HURRICANE THROUGH THE NEXT 36 HOURS. THE

UPPER LEVEL LOW WILL ALSO STEER LISA TO THE NORTH-NORTHWEST FOR A

DAY OR SO. THEREAFTER...LISA WILL TURN TO THE NORTH AND NORTHEAST

AND ACCELERATE THROUGH 72 HOURS BECOMING EXTRA-TROPICAL OVER COOLER

WATERS. THE OFFICIAL FORECAST FOLLOWS THE GLOBAL MODEL CONSENSUS

AND IS VERY SIMILAR TO THE PREVIOUS ONE.
