Hurricane IGNACIO


ZCZC MIATCDEP4 ALL
TTAA00 KNHC DDHHMM
TROPICAL DEPRESSION IGNACIO DISCUSSION NUMBER  23
NWS TPC/NATIONAL HURRICANE CENTER MIAMI FL
8 AM PDT WED AUG 27 2003

FIRST-LIGHT VISUAL IMAGES DO NOT SHOW A DISTINCT CENTER OF
CIRCULATION.  DEEP CONVECTION HAS DIMINISHED...AND SURFACE
PRESSURES CONTINUE TO RISE OVER THE AREA.  EVEN IF THE CENTER
REMERGES OVER THE WATERS TO THE WEST OF SOUTH-CENTRAL
BAJA...SIGNIFICANT REGENERATION IS UNLIKELY.  IGNACIO SHOULD BECOME
A NON-CONVECTIVE REMNANT LOW IN 24 HOURS...OR LESS.

THE CENTER LOCATION IS HIGHLY UNCERTAIN...BUT IT IS ASSUMED THAT THE
SYSTEM HAS CONTINUED TO MOVE SLOWLY NORTHWESTWARD...AROUND 3 KT. 
IGNACIO REMAINS EMBEDDED IN SOUTHEASTERLY STEERING ASSOCIATED WITH
A MID-LEVEL RIDGE TO ITS NORTHEAST.  A CONTINUED SLOW NORTHWESTWARD
MOTION IS FORECAST UNTIL DISSIPATION.

EVEN THOUGH CONVECTION HAS DECREASED FOR NOW...THERE IS STILL SOME
POTENTIAL FOR LOCALLY HEAVY RAINS OVER PORTIONS OF SOUTH-CENTRAL
BAJA.
