Hurricane JEANNE


ZCZC MIATCDAT1 ALL
TTAA00 KNHC DDHHMM
HURRICANE JEANNE DISCUSSION NUMBER  52
NWS TPC/NATIONAL HURRICANE CENTER MIAMI FL
11 AM EDT SUN SEP 26 2004

THE EYE CONTINUES TO MOVE WEST-NORTWESTWARD...290/9...OVER THE WEST-
CENTRAL FLORIDA PENINSULA...AND IS NEARING THE TAMPA BAY AREA. 
WSR-88D DOPPLER VELOCITIES FROM THE TAMPA RADAR INDICATE THAT THE
MAXIMUM SURFACE WINDS ARE NEAR 65 KT.  ADDITIONAL WEAKENING IS
LIKELY DUE TO THE INTERACTION WITH LAND.  THE CENTER WILL PROBABLY
MOVE JUST SLIGHTLY OFFSHORE OF THE FLORIDA UPPER WEST COAST THIS
EVENING...BUT NOT ENOUGH OVER THE WATER TO BRING ABOUT SIGNIFICANT
RE-STRENGTHENING.  

THERE IS LITTLE CHANGE TO THE FORECAST TRACK OR PHILOSOPHY FROM THE
PREVIOUS ADVISORY.  JEANNE IS APPROACHING THE WESTERN END OF A DEEP
LAYER HIGH PRESSURE SYSTEM CENTERED JUST EAST OF NORTH CAROLINA.  A
GRADUAL TURN TO THE NORTHWEST AND NORTH IS FORECAST OVER THE NEXT
DAY OR SO.  THIS TRACK WOULD BRING THE CENTER OF A WEAKENING
TROPICAL CYCLONE ACROSS THE SOUTHEASTERN UNITED STATES...EXITING
THE MID-ATLANTIC COAST IN 2-3 DAYS...AND ACCELERATING IN THE
WESTERLIES THEREAFTER.  JEANNE SHOULD LOSE TROPICAL CHARACTERISTICS
BY LATE IN THE FORECAST PERIOD.  THIS OFFICIAL FORECAST IS CLOSE TO
THE GUNA CONSENSUS...ALTHOUGH THE GFS IS CONSIDERABLY FASTER THAN
THE OTHER GUIDANCE MODELS
