Hurricane PATRICIA


ZCZC MIATCDEP1 ALL
TTAA00 KNHC DDHHMM
TROPICAL DEPRESSION PATRICIA DISCUSSION NUMBER  23
NWS TPC/NATIONAL HURRICANE CENTER MIAMI FL
8 PM PDT SAT OCT 25 2003
 
SATELLITE IMAGERY SHOWS A BROAD ELONGATED LOW-CLOUD CIRCULATION AND
A COUPLE OF SMALL DISORGANIZED CONVECTIVE CELLS.  ALL AGENCIES
CLASSIFY THE SYSTEM AS "TOO WEAK TO CLASSIFY".  INTENSITY GUIDANCE
MODELS SHOW A REMNANT LOW OR DISSIPATION IN THE NEXT FEW DAYS UNDER
RATHER STRONG VERTICAL SHEAR.  THIS WILL BE THE LAST ADVISORY
UNLESS REGENERATION OCCURS.

THE INITIAL MOTION IS BASED ON A CENTER LOCATION NEAR THE EAST END
OF THE ELONGATED LOW.  THIS IS TO MAINTAIN SOME CONTINUITY WITH THE
PREVIOUS ADVISORY.  THE NOGAPS IS THE ONLY GLOBAL MODEL TO SHOW A
SIGNIFICANT MOTION...TOWARD THE NORTH.  THE OTHER GLOBAL MODELS
SHOW THE DEPRESSION TO BE EMBEDDED IN VERY WEAK STEERING CURRENTS
AND THE OFFICIAL FORECAST TRACK IS A VERY SLOW MOSTLY NORTHWARD
MOTION FOLLOWING A CONSENSUS OF THE GUIDANCE.
