Tropical Storm FELICIA


ZCZC MIATCDEP1 ALL
TTAA00 KNHC DDHHMM
TROPICAL DEPRESSION FELICIA DISCUSSION NUMBER  11
NWS TPC/NATIONAL HURRICANE CENTER MIAMI FL
8 AM PDT SUN JUL 20 2003

THERE HAS BEEN A BURST OF DEEP CONVECTION OVER THE SOUTHERN PORTION
OF THE CIRCULATION...WITH LITTLE EVIDENCE OF BANDING HOWEVER. THE
LOW-LEVEL CENTER IS APPARENTLY LOCATED TO THE NORTH OF THE MAIN
AREA OF CONVECTION BUT THE CIRCULATION MAY BE ELONGATED
NORTH-SOUTH. FELICIA WILL PROBABLY CONTINUE TO GENERATE
INTERMITTENT CONVECTIVE BURSTS FOR ANOTHER DAY OR SO.
HOWEVER...COOLER SSTS AND DRIER MORE STABLE AIR ARE EXPECTED TO
CAUSE THE TROPICAL CYCLONE TO DISSIPATE TO A REMNANT LOW IN A
COUPLE OF DAYS.

THE CYCLONE HAS BEEN MOVING IN A GENERAL WESTWARD DIRECTION...WITH
STEERING BEING PROVIDED BY THE SUBTROPICAL RIDGE TO THE NORTH.  THE
GLOBAL MODELS CONTINUE TO SHOW A MID-LEVEL INVERTED TROUGH OR
CUTOFF CYCLONE TO THE NORTHWEST OF FELICIA...WHICH COULD CAUSE A
MORE NORTHWARD MOTION TO DEVELOP.  HOWEVER...WATER VAPOR IMAGERY
SUGGESTS THAT THE MODELS MAY BE OVERSTATING THE PRESENCE OF THIS
FEATURE.  THE OFFICIAL TRACK FORECAST IS QUITE SIMILAR TO THE
PREVIOUS ONE AND IS ON THE SOUTHERN SIDE OF THE GUIDANCE SUITE.
