Tropical Depression ALBERTO


ZCZC MIATCDAT1 ALL
TTAA00 KNHC DDHHMM
TROPICAL DEPRESSION ALBERTO DISCUSSION NUMBER  17
NWS TPC/NATIONAL HURRICANE CENTER MIAMI FL   AL012006
500 AM EDT WED JUN 14 2006
 
DOPPLER VELOCITIES AND OBSERVATIONS FROM BUOYS AND CMAN STATIONS OFF
THE GEORGIA AND SOUTH CAROLINA COASTS INDICATE THAT WINDS HAVE
DROPPED BELOW TROPICAL STORM FORCE. HENCE...THE TROPICAL CYCLONE
HAS BEEN DOWNGRADED TO A DEPRESSION AND ALL TROPICAL STORM WARNINGS
HAVE BEEN DISCONTINUED. HOWEVER...GALE WARNINGS ARE IN EFFECT ALONG
PORTIONS OF THE CAROLINAS IN ANTICIPATION OF ALBERTO'S
RE-STRENGTHENING AS AN EXTRATROPICAL CYCLONE. 

ALBERTO HAS ACCELERATED DURING THE PAST 6 HOURS AND THE INITIAL
MOTION IS NOW 040/18. A DEEP-LAYER LAYER TROUGH DIGGING SOUTH FROM
THE GREAT LAKES REGION SHOULD HELP THE CYCLONE TO CONTINUE TO
ACCELERATE TO THE NORTHEAST. ALBERTO IS QUICKLY LOSING TROPICAL
CHARACTERISTICS AND EXTRATROPICAL TRANSITION SHOULD OCCUR IN THE
NEXT 6-12 HOURS WITH ADDITIONAL INTENSIFICATION FORECAST ONCE THE
SYSTEM RE-EMERGES OVER WATER. THE OFFICIAL FORECAST IS SIMILAR TO
THE PREVIOUS ADVISORY WITH ONLY A SLIGHT SHIFT TO THE NORTH AND
WEST IN THE EARLY PERIODS. THE TRACK FORECAST BEYOND 48 HOURS IS 
A BLEND OF THE GFS AND UKMET MODEL SOLUTIONS.
