Hurricane FABIAN


ZCZC MIATCDAT5 ALL
TTAA00 KNHC DDHHMM
HURRICANE FABIAN DISCUSSION NUMBER  39
NWS TPC/NATIONAL HURRICANE CENTER MIAMI FL
5 AM EDT SAT SEP 06 2003
 
AN AIR FORCE RECON MEASURED A SURFACE WIND OF 235/32 KTS ON THE
SOUTHERN TIP OF BERMUDA.  SO THINGS SHOULD BE IMPROVING THERE
FAIRLY QUICKLY.  

ALL GUIDANCE REMAINS CLUSTERED FOR THE FIRST 36 HOURS AND THEN
BEGINS TO DIVERGE AS THE SYSTEM BECOMES EXTRATROPICAL. A GRADUAL
WEAKENING SHOULD BEGIN AS THE SHEAR INCREASES AND THE HURRICANE
BEGINS TO MOVE OVER COOL WATERS.
 
FABIAN SHOULD BE EXTRATROPICAL BY 48 HOURS OVER THE COLD WATERS OF
THE NORTH ATLANTIC. THE GFS SUGGESTS THAT THE SYSTEM WILL DEVELOP
INTO A POWERFUL EXTRATROPICAL STORM AND THE 96 HOUR INTENSITY
REFLECTS THIS.
