Tropical Storm HENRI


ZCZC MIATCDAT2 ALL
TTAA00 KNHC DDHHMM
TROPICAL DEPRESSION HENRI DISCUSSION NUMBER  20
NWS TPC/NATIONAL HURRICANE CENTER MIAMI FL
11 AM EDT MON SEP 08 2003
 
HENRI IS NOT AN IMPRESSIVE-LOOKING SYSTEM.  THE LOW-LEVEL
CIRCULATION IS ELONGATED ALONG A SOUTHWEST TO NORTHEAST AXIS AND
PRACTICALLY ALL OF THE DEEP CONVECTION IS IN A DISORGANIZED CLUSTER
LOCATED WELL TO THE EAST OF THE ESTIMATED CENTER.  ALTHOUGH THE
SYSTEM IS OVER WARM WATER...STRONG SHEAR SHOULD PREVENT
STRENGTHENING.  THE SYSTEM CONTINUES TO MERGE WITH AN ADJACENT
FRONTAL BOUNDARY...AND IS LIKELY TO LOSE ITS REMAINING TROPICAL
CHARACTERISTICS SOON.

INITIAL MOTION IS ESTIMATED AT 055/7 WITH A LOT OF UNCERTAINTY DUE
TO THE GREAT SCATTER IN CENTER FIXES.  MOST OF THE DYNAMICAL
GUIDANCE SHOWS THE SYSTEM BECOMING NEARLY STATIONARY OR MEANDERING
IN A FEW DAYS AS STEERING CURRENTS BECOME ILL-DEFINED.  THE NHC
TRACK IS SIMILAR TO THAT FROM THE PREVIOUS ADVISORY.
