Hurricane DANIELLE


ZCZC MIATCDAT4 ALL
TTAA00 KNHC DDHHMM
TROPICAL DEPRESSION DANIELLE DISCUSSION NUMBER  32
NWS TPC/NATIONAL HURRICANE CENTER MIAMI FL
5 AM EDT SAT AUG 21 2004
 
THE PAST 24 HOUR MOTION IS 290/03 AND THE PAST 6 HOUR MOTION IS
235/04...DANIELLE CONTINUES TO MOVE SLOWLY AND ERRATICALLY.  THE
GFS SHOWS A MID-LEVEL LOW CUTTING OFF TO THE NORTHWEST OF DANIELLE
AND A RIDGE BUILDING TO THE NORTHEAST.  THEN AFTER 72 HOURS...A
MAJOR TROUGH IN THE WESTERLIES MOVES ACROSS THE NORTH ATLANTIC. 
THE GLOBAL TRACK MODELS RESPOND TO THIS SCENARIO WITH A GRADUALLY
ACCELERATING NORTHWEST TO NORTH TO NORTHEASTWARD TRACK OVER THE
NEXT 120 HOURS.  THE OFFICIAL TRACK FORECAST IS SIMILAR TO THE
PREVIOUS ADVISORY EXCEPT A LITTLE FASTER...BUT NOT QUITE AS FAST AS
A CONSENSUS OF THE MODELS.

DEEP CONVECTION CONTINUES TO OCCASIONALLY FIRE UP TO THE NORTHEAST
OF THE CENTER.  THE LATEST SHIPS MODEL AGAIN SHOWS A WINDOW OF
OPPORTUNITY FOR SOME RE-INTENSIFICATION BEFORE DANIELLE REACHES
COLD WATER.  IN CONTRAST...THE GFDL MODEL SHOWS DISSIPATION AFTER
36 HOURS.  SIMILAR TO THE PREVIOUS ADVISORY...THE OFFICIAL FORECAST
IS FOR LITTLE CHANGE IN STRENGTH UNTIL DANIELLE DEGENERATES INTO A
REMNANT LOW SOMETIME IN THE NEXT 120 HOURS.
