Tropical Storm LARRY


ZCZC MIATCDAT2 ALL
TTAA00 KNHC DDHHMM
TROPICAL STORM LARRY DISCUSSION NUMBER  15
NWS TPC/NATIONAL HURRICANE CENTER MIAMI FL
5 AM EDT SUN OCT 05 2003
 
LARRY IS A SMALL AND TENACIOUS TROPICAL STORM. THREE CONSECUTIVE
FIXES FROM AN AIR FORCE RECONNAISSANCE PLANE INDICATED THAT THE
CENTER WAS STILL OFFSHORE. THE MINIMUM CENTRAL PRESSURE CONTINUES
TO BE 996 MB WITH A FLIGHT LEVEL PEAK WIND OF 61 KNOTS JUST TO THE
NORTHEAST OF THE CENTER. MICROWAVE DATA ALSO SHOWED A RING OF DEEP
CONVECTION SURROUNDING THE CENTER. INITIAL INTENSITY IS KEPT AT 50
KNOTS BUT LARRY SHOULD WEAKEN AS IT MOVES INLAND.
 
LARRY HAS MOVED VERY LITTLE DURING THE PAST FEW HOURS. HOWEVER...IT
SHOULD MOVE SOUTHWARD ACROSS THE ISTHMUS OF TEHUANTEPEC TO THE
EASTERN PACIFIC AS A HIGH PRESSURE SYSTEM EXPANDS TO THE NORTHWEST
OF THE CYCLONE. THIS IS THE SOLUTION PROVIDED BY GLOBAL MODELS. IF
THE CIRCULATION SURVIVES THE HIGH TERRRAIN...LARRY COULD REDEVELOP
ONCE IT MOVES BACK OVER WATER. IT SHOULD THEN MOVE WESTWARD AROUND
THE HIGH TO THE NORTH.
