ZCZC MIATCDEP1 ALL
TTAA00 KNHC DDHHMM
TROPICAL DEPRESSION SIX-E DISCUSSION NUMBER   7
NWS TPC/NATIONAL HURRICANE CENTER MIAMI FL
8 AM PDT MON AUG 02 2004
 
SHORTWARE IR AND LONGWAVE IR IMAGERY STILL SHOW LITTLE CHANGE IN
TROPICAL DEPRESSION SIX-E...WITH CONVECTION MAINLY CONFINED TO THE
WEST AND NORTHEAST OF THE CENTER.  CURRENT INTENSITY ESTIMATES FROM
TAFB AND SAB ARE UNCHANGED SO THE CYCLONE INTENSITY REMAINS 30 KTS.
 
SHIPS INDICATES SLOW STRENGTHENING IS LIKELY OVER THE
EARLY FORECAST PERIOD AS THE CYCLONE REMAINS IN A LOW SHEAR
ENVIRONMENT AND OVER WARMER SSTS.  HOWEVER...LATER IN THE FORECAST
PERIOD...A WEAKENING TREND IS EXPECTED AS THE SYSTEM MOVES INTO COOL
WATERS AND INCREASING WESTERLY SHEAR.
 
THE SYSTEM IS MOVING GENERALLY WESTWARD TO THE SOUTH OF THE
SUBTROPICAL RIDGE.  THE OFFICIAL TRACK FORECAST FOR THIS ADVISORY
REMAINS CONSISTENT WITH THE PREVIOUS FORECASTS...AND REMAINS
CONSISTENT WITH THE CONSENSUS OF MODEL GUIDANCE.
