Tropical Storm LISA


ZCZC MIATCDAT3 ALL
TTAA00 KNHC DDHHMM
TROPICAL DEPRESSION LISA DISCUSSION NUMBER  18
NWS TPC/NATIONAL HURRICANE CENTER MIAMI FL
5 PM EDT THU SEP 23 2004
 
VISIBLE SATELLITE IMAGERY SHOWS THAT NORTHERLY SHEAR HAS BLOWN AWAY
THE DEEP CONVECTION AND EXPOSED A LOW LEVEL CLOUD CENTER TO THE
NORTHEAST OF WHERE A CENTER LOCATION WAS ESTIMATED ON THE PREVIOUS
ADVISORY.  THIS REQUIRES A RELOCATION OF THE CENTER AND IMPLIES
THAT THE CENTER HAS MOVED IN A CYCLONIC OOP OVER THE PAST 24 HOURS
AND IS NOW MOVING ABOUT 300/05.  THE GLOBAL TRACK MODELS ARE IN
GOOD AGREEMENT ABOUT A SLOW MOSTLY NORTH-NORTHWESTWARD MOTION
TOWARD A WEAKNESS IN THE SUBTROPICAL RIDGE TO THE NORTH OF LISA. 
THE OFFICIAL TRACK FORECAST FOLLOWS A CONSENSUS OF THE GUIDANCE AND
IS ADJUSTED TO THE RIGHT OF THE PREVIOUS ADVISORY DUE TO THE
RELOCATION.

THE ABSENCE OF ANY DEEP CONVECTION NEAR THE CENTER IS GROUNDS FOR
DOWNGRADING LISA TO A TROPICAL DEPRESSION.  THE SHIPS MODEL
INDICATES THAT THE VERTICAL SHEAR WILL WEAKEN SOME OVER THE NEXT 72
HOURS AND THE OFFICIAL FORECAST IS FOR MODEST INTENSIFICATION
THROUGH 72 HOURS...A LITTLE MORE THAN SHIPS BUT NOT NEARLY AS
AGGRESSIVE AS THE GFDL MODEL.
