ZCZC MIATCDEP3 ALL
TTAA00 KNHC DDHHMM
TROPICAL STORM HILARY DISCUSSION NUMBER  25
NWS TPC/NATIONAL HURRICANE CENTER MIAMI FL
2 AM PDT THU AUG 25 2005
 
THE POORLY DEFINED CIRCULATION CENTER OF TROPICAL STORM HILARY HAS
BECOME RATHER DIFFICULT TO LOCATE IN INFRARED IMAGERY.  
FORTUNATELY...A TIMELY 0543Z AMSU-B MICROWAVE OVERPASS PROVED TO BE
BENEFICIAL IN PINPOINTING THE CENTER.  DVORAK INTENSITY T-NUMBERS
CONTINUE TO DROP...SUPPORTING AN INITIAL INTENSITY OF 40 KT.  THE
INTENSITY FORECAST CALLS FOR A RAPID WEAKENING TREND...WITH
DISSIPATION WITHIN ABOUT 24 HOURS.
 
INITIAL MOTION ESTIMATE IS 300/8.  DYNAMICAL MODELS SUGGEST THAT
THIS GENERAL MOTION SHOULD CONTINUE THROUGH THE 48 HOUR
PERIOD...WITH A GRADUAL TURN TO THE WEST AFTERWARDS WITHIN THE LOW
TO MID LEVEL FLOW OF THE RIDGE TO THE NORTHWEST OF THE SYSTEM.
