Hurricane NORA


ZCZC MIATCDEP4 ALL
TTAA00 KNHC DDHHMM
TROPICAL DEPRESSION NORA DISCUSSION NUMBER  27
NWS TPC/NATIONAL HURRICANE CENTER MIAMI FL
2 AM PDT WED OCT 08 2003

A PASS FROM THE ADEOS-II SEAWINDS SCATTEROMETER AROUND 0520 UTC
SHOWED MAXIMUM SURFACE WINDS OF ABOUT 25 KT.  THIS IS A REASONABLE
ESTIMATE FOR THE CURRENT INTENSITY...SINCE THE MAXIMUM WINDS WERE
ABOUT 30 KT 6-12 HOURS AGO AND THE SYSTEM HAS LIKELY BEEN SPINNING
DOWN SINCE THAT TIME.  EVEN THOUGH THE SST IS AROUND 28 C...THE
SYSTEM HAS BEEN UNABLE TO GENERATE DEEP CONVECTION...PERHAPS DUE TO
A STABLE ATMOSPHERE.  THE CIRCULATION SHOULD CONTINUE TO SPIN
DOWN...AND DISSIPATE IN A FEW DAYS.

NORA IS FORECAST TO MOVE AROUND THE CIRCULATION OF A LARGE LOW
CENTERED JUST WEST OF THE BAJA CALIFORNIA PENINSULA.  THE OFFICIAL
FORECAST TRACK IS VERY CLOSE TO THE GUNA CONSENSUS.
