Hurricane KATE


ZCZC MIATCDAT1 ALL
TTAA00 KNHC DDHHMM
HURRICANE KATE DISCUSSION NUMBER  39
NWS TPC/NATIONAL HURRICANE CENTER MIAMI FL
5 AM EDT SUN OCT 05 2003
 
AFTER A LITTLE BIT OF EROSION ON THE WESTERN SEMICIRCLE...LATEST
IMAGES INDICATE THAT KATE HAS REDEVELOPED A RING OF DEEP CONVECTION
SURROUNDING THE EYE. HOWEVER...THE OVERALL CLOUD PATTERN SUGGESTS
THAT WINDS HAVE DECREASED TO 95 KNOTS. KATE SHOULD BEGIN TO WEAKEN
GRADUALLY AS THE SHEAR INCREASES AND THE CYCLONE ENCOUNTERS COOLER
WATER.

THERE IS NOTHING NEW TO REPORT ON THE TRACK. KATE IS EXPECTED TO
GRADUALLY TURN TO THE NORTH IN ABOUT 12 TO 24 HOURS AND THEN BECOME
STEERED BY THE SOUTHWESTERLY FLOW AHEAD OF A TROUGH. IT SHOULD THEN
INCREASE IN FORWARD SPEED AND BECOME FULLY EXTRATROPICAL BY 72
HOURS.
