Hurricane FERNANDA


ZCZC MIATCDEP1 ALL
TTAA00 KNHC DDHHMM
HURRICANE FERNANDA DISCUSSION NUMBER  15
NWS TPC/NATIONAL HURRICANE CENTER MIAMI FL
8 PM PDT FRI AUG 12 2005
 
SATELLITE IMAGERY AND RECENT MICROWAVE OVERPASSES DEPICT LITTLE
CHANGE IN THE OVERALL CLOUD PATTERN...ALTHOUGH CLOUD TOPS HAVE
WARMED SLIGHTLY DURING THE PAST 6 HOURS. HOWEVER...FERNANDA'S
INTENSITY REMAINS AT 75 KT...AS THE DVORAK SATELLITE INTENSITY
ESTIMATES FROM ALL AGENCIES SUGGEST.  THE INTENSITY FORECAST IS
SIMILAR TO THE PREVIOUS PACKAGE...DECREASING BELOW HURRICANE
STRENGTH IN 24 HOURS. THIS FOLLOWS THE GFDL...SHIPS...AND THE FSU
SUPERENSEMBLE. THROUGH THE REMAINDER OF THE FORECAST...FERNANDA IS
EXPECTED TO WEAKEN TO A DEPRESSION AS UPPER WESTERLIES SLOWLY
INCREASE AND THE TROPICAL CYCLONE MOVES OVER COOLER WATERS.
 
THE INITIAL MOTION IS 295/8. FERNANDA IS EXPECTED TO BEGIN A MORE
WESTWARD TO WEST-SOUTHWESTWARD TRACK DURING THE NEXT 24 HOURS IN
RESPONSE TO A RIDGE BUILDING BETWEEN GREG AND FERNANDA.  THE
OFFICIAL FORECAST IS BASED ON THE CONU AND GUNA CONSENSUS AND IS
SIMILAR TO THE PREVIOUS ADVISORY.
