Hurricane NATE


ZCZC MIATCDAT5 ALL
TTAA00 KNHC DDHHMM
HURRICANE NATE DISCUSSION NUMBER  13
NWS TPC/NATIONAL HURRICANE CENTER MIAMI FL
5 PM EDT THU SEP 08 2005
 
THE EYE HAS BEEN INTTERMMITTENT DURING THE PAST SEVERAL HOURS AND
THE CLOUD PATTERN REMAINS WELL-ORGANIZED. DVORAK T-NUMBERS
SUPPORT AN INITIAL INTENSITY OF 75 KNOTS. A SLIGHT WEAKENING IS
EXPECTED DURING THE NEXT DAY OR SO. THERAFTER...NATE SHOULD BEGIN
TO ACQUIRE EXTRATROPICAL CHARACTERISTICS IN ABOUT 72 HOURS AS IT
MOVES OVER COOLER WATER AND HIGHER SHEAR AND THEN BECOME ABSORBED
BY A MUCH LARGER EXTRATROPICAL CYCLONE.
 
NATE HAS BEEN ACCELERATINGLY AND IS NOW MOVING TOWARD THE NORTHEAST
ABOUT 14 KNOTS....WELL EMBEDDED WITHIN THE SOUTHWESTERLY
MID-LATITUDE FLOW. GUIDANCE IS TIGHTLY CLUSTERED...SO THERE IS
HIGH CONFIDENCE IN THE TRACK FORECAST THAT NATE WILL CONTINUE WITH
THIS GENERAL MOTION...WITH A GRADUAL INCREASE IN FORWARD SPEED.
