Hurricane MAX


ZCZC MIATCDEP3 ALL
TTAA00 KNHC DDHHMM
TROPICAL STORM MAX DISCUSSION NUMBER  14
NWS TPC/NATIONAL HURRICANE CENTER MIAMI FL
2 PM PDT WED SEP 21 2005
 
DEEP CONVECTION IS VANISHING...AND SO THE CLOCK IS TICKING ON MAX'S
STATUS AS A TROPICAL CYCLONE.  MAXIMUM WINDS ARE DECREASED TO 45 KT
FOR THIS ADVISORY...AND CONTINUED DECAY OVER COOL WATERS IS
EXPECTED.  IF NO DEEP CONVECTION RETURNS...MAX COULD BE DECLARED A
REMNANT LOW BY TOMORROW MORNING.

THE INITIAL MOTION IS NOW 280/4.  12Z MODELS SHOW A MUCH WEAKER
RIDGE TO THE NORTH OF MAX AND BRING A DEEP-LAYER TROUGH TO THE
CALIFORNIA COAST IN 3 TO 4 DAYS.  THIS PRODUCES A MUCH SLOWER
WESTWARD MOTION THAN INDICATED IN THE PREVIOUS OFFICIAL
FORECAST...WITH A SOUTHWARD TREND LATE AS LOW-LEVEL NORTHERLIES
OVERSWEEP THE AREA.  THE OFFICIAL FORECAST IS ADJUSTED SOUTHWARD
AND SIGNIFICANTLY SLOWED.
