Tropical Storm LISA


ZCZC MIATCDAT3 ALL
TTAA00 KNHC DDHHMM
TROPICAL STORM LISA DISCUSSION NUMBER  41
NWS TPC/NATIONAL HURRICANE CENTER MIAMI FL
11 AM EDT WED SEP 29 2004
 
SATELLITE IMAGERY REVEALS THAT LISA HAS BECOME BETTER ORGANIZED
DURING THE MORNING AS INDICATED BY A DISTINCT CYCLONICALLY CURVED
CONVECTIVE CLOUD BAND...AND BETTER DEFINED CIRRUS OUTFLOW PATTERN
OVER THE NORTHERN SEMICIRCLE. THE APPEARANCE OF A DEVELOPING EYE
TYPE FEATURE FURTHER SUGGESTS THAT LISA IS BECOMING STRONGER.
HOWEVER...DVORAK SATELLITE ESTIMATES AT 12Z FROM TAFB WHERE 3.5 AND
3.0 FROM SAB. BASED ON THIS INFORMATION WILL KEEP THE INITIAL
INTENSITY AT 60 KT. OBSERVATIONS OF 45 KNOTS FROM SHIP ZCGH LOCATED
ABOUT 100 NM SW OF THE CENTER AND 30 KNOTS FROM SHIP FQFL ABOUT 220
NM NE OF THE CENTER OF LISA WERE USED TO ADJUST THE 34-KNOT WIND
RADII.
 
INITIAL MOTION ESTIMATE IS 360/10. AN UPPER LEVEL LOW TO THE
SOUTHWEST OF LISA WILL HELP REDUCE SHEAR IN 12 HOURS ALLOWING
FOR LISA TO STRENGTHEN TO A HURRICANE THROUGH THE NEXT 36 HOURS. THE
UPPER LEVEL LOW WILL ALSO STEER LISA TO THE NORTH-NORTHWEST FOR A
DAY OR SO. THEREAFTER...LISA WILL TURN TO THE NORTH AND NORTHEAST
AND ACCELERATE THROUGH 72 HOURS BECOMING EXTRA-TROPICAL OVER COOLER
WATERS. THE OFFICIAL FORECAST FOLLOWS THE GLOBAL MODEL CONSENSUS
AND IS VERY SIMILAR TO THE PREVIOUS ONE.
