Tropical Storm HARVEY


ZCZC MIATCDAT3 ALL
TTAA00 KNHC DDHHMM
TROPICAL STORM HARVEY DISCUSSION NUMBER  21
NWS TPC/NATIONAL HURRICANE CENTER MIAMI FL
11 AM EDT SUN AUG 07 2005
 
VISIBLE IMAGERY INDICATES HARVEY'S CIRCULATION IS EXPOSED TO THE
SOUTHWEST OF THE CONVECTION...AS A RESULT OF A PERSISTENTLY 
SHEARED ENVIRONMENT.  DVORAK DATA-T CLASSIFICATIONS ARE 45 KT FROM
BOTH TAFB AND SAB...AND 35 KT FROM AFWA.  A RECENT QUIKSCAT PASS
SHOWED RAIN ENHANCED 50KT WINDS IN THE STRONGEST AREA OF CONVECTION
WITH SEVERAL NON-FLAGGED 40 KT AND 45 KT WINDS.  BOTH THE DVORAK
CLASSIFICATIONS AND QUIKSCAT PASS SUPPORT LOWERING THE INITIAL
INTENSITY TO 45 KT.
 
THE 12-HOUR AVERAGED MOTION IS 045/10. THE STEERING FLOW REMAINS
UNCHANGED WITH AN APPROACHING MID-UPPER LEVEL TROUGH.  THIS TROUGH
WILL CONTINUE TO MOVE HARVEY NORTHEASTWARD FOR THE NEXT DAY OR SO
FOLLOWED BY A MORE EAST-NORTHEAST MOTION THEREAFTER.  WITH THE
COMBINATION OF INCREASING SHEAR AND SST'S BELOW 26 DEGREES
CELSIUS...EXTRATROPICAL TRANSITION SHOULD OCCUR IN THE NEXT 24-36
HOURS.  MOST OF THE MODEL GUIDANCE FORECASTS HARVEY TO SLOW DOWN
ONCE EMBEDDED IN THE WESTERLIES MAINTAINING GALE FORCE WINDS.  THE
OFFICIAL FORECAST IS SIMILIAR TO THE PREVIOUS ADVISORY BUT
SLOWER...AND GENERALLY FOLLOWS THE CONSENSUS MODELS.
