Hurricane JEANNE


ZCZC MIATCDAT1 ALL
TTAA00 KNHC DDHHMM
TROPICAL STORM JEANNE DISCUSSION NUMBER  55
NWS TPC/NATIONAL HURRICANE CENTER MIAMI FL
5 AM EDT MON SEP 27 2004
 
DOPPLER VELOCITY DATA ARE SHOWING SOME SPIN DOWN OF THE WIND FIELD
ALOFT...BUT SURFACE OBSERVATIONS SUGGEST THAT THERE MAY STILL BE A
FEW SPOTS OF 45 KT WINDS AROUND IN RAINBANDS OVER THE GULF OF
MEXICO AND OVER THE ATLANTIC.  THE OFFICIAL FORECAST CALLS FOR A
SLIGHTLY SLOWER DECAY OF THE WIND FIELD...WHICH SEEMS TO HAVE
EXPANDED SOMEWHAT OVER THE PAST SEVERAL HOURS.  THIS REQUIRES AN
EXTENSION OF THE TROPICAL STORM WARNING NORTHWARD.

THE INITIAL MOTION IS 335/10...A BIT TO THE LEFT OF THE PREVIOUS
TRACK.  MID-LEVEL HIGH PRESSURE TO THE NORTHEAST OF THE CYCLONE
WILL CONTINUE TO EDGE SOUTHEASTWARD AND ALLOW JEANNE TO RECURVE
AROUND ITS PERIPHERY FOR THE NEXT 36 HOURS OR SO.  AFTER THAT...A
SHORTWAVE TROUGH IN THE WESTERLIES WILL BEGIN TO ACCELERATE JEANNE
EASTWARD.  HOWEVER...THE GFS...NOGAPS...AND UKMET ARE ALL NOW
SUGGESTING A DECAPITATION SIMILAR TO WHAT OCCURRED WITH IVAN...IN
WHICH THE LOWER LEVEL CIRCULATION IS LEFT BEHIND WHILE THE UPPER
PORTION CONTINUES RAPIDLY EASTWARD.  THE DISPOSITION OF ANY
ABANDONED REMNANT MAY DEPEND ON WHERE LISA IS IN FOUR OR FIVE DAYS. 
IN FACT...THE NOGAPS HAS THE SOUTHERN REMNANT OF JEANNE BECOMING
ABSORBED INTO LISA.  THE OFFICIAL FORECAST IS SIGNIFICANTLY SLOWER
THAN THE PREVIOUS ADVISORY AFTER 48 HOURS AND CALLS FOR A SLOW
MOTION AFTER 72 HOURS FOLLOWED BY DISSIPATION.  THIS FORECAST IS IN
BEST AGREEMENT WITH THE GFS SOLUTION. 

AS JEANNE BEGINS TO INTERACT WITH THE MID-LATITUDE SHORT WAVE
TROUGH AFTER 48 HOURS...SOME BRIEF EXTRATROPICAL/FRONTAL
RESTRENGTHENING IS POSSIBLE.
