Tropical Storm LEE


ZCZC MIATCDAT3 ALL
TTAA00 KNHC DDHHMM
TROPICAL DEPRESSION LEE DISCUSSION NUMBER  11
NWS TPC/NATIONAL HURRICANE CENTER MIAMI FL
11 PM EDT THU SEP 01 2005
 
LATEST SATELLITE IMAGERY SHOWS THAT CONVECTION ASSOCIATED WITH LEE
HAS BEEN SHEARED OFF TO THE EAST WITH RAPIDLY WARMING CLOUD TOPS.
THE DEPRESSION NOW CONSISTS ONLY OF AN EXPOSED LOW-LEVEL
CIRCULATION.  THEREFORE THE SYSTEM NO LONGER QUALIFIES AS A TROPICAL
CYCLONE...AND THIS WILL BE THE LAST ADVISORY ISSUED ON LEE UNLESS
REGENERATION OCCURS.  AN EARLIER QUIKSCAT PASS INDICATED MAXIMUM
WINDS NEAR 30 KT BUT THE INITIAL INTENSITY IS SET AT 25 KT BASED ON
THE DEGENERATION OF THE CONVECTION.  THE REMNANT LOW IS EXPECTED TO
MAINTAIN 25 KT WINDS PRIMARILY TO THE EAST OF THE REMNANT LOW
CENTER THROUGH 48 HOURS.
 
LEE HAS BEEN DRIFTING WESTWARD OVER THE LAST SEVERAL HOURS BUT THE
12 HOUR MOTION IS TOWARD THE WEST-NORTHWEST OR 290/06.  NOW THAT THE
CYCLONE IS A SHALLOW SYSTEM...IT SHOULD MOVE ON A GENERAL
NORTHWARD TRACK STEERED BY THE LOW-LEVEL FLOW AROUND THE WESTERN
PERIPHERY OF A SUBTROPICAL HIGH CENTERED TO THE NORTHEAST OF THE
DISSIPATING DEPRESSION.
 
ADDITIONAL INFORMATION ON THIS SYSTEM CAN BE FOUND IN HIGH SEAS
FORECASTS ISSUED BY THE NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE...UNDER AWIPS
HEADER NFDHSFAT1 AND WMO HEADER FZNT01 KWBC.
