Tropical Depression THREE


ZCZC MIATCDAT3 ALL
TTAA00 KNHC DDHHMM
TROPICAL DEPRESSION THREE DISCUSSION NUMBER   1
NWS TPC/NATIONAL HURRICANE CENTER MIAMI FL   AL032007
1100 PM EDT MON JUL 30 2007
 
THE AREA OF LOW PRESSURE THAT PASSED TO THE WEST OF BERMUDA EARLIER
TODAY HAS BEEN MAINTAINING CONSISTENT DEEP CONVECTION FOR THE LAST
15 HOURS OR SO.  THE LOW-LEVEL CIRCULATION CENTER...EXPOSED FOR
MUCH OF THE DAY...HAS MADE A COUPLE OF FORAYS UNDERNEATH THE
CONVECTION...AND IS WELL-ENOUGH INVOLVED WITH THE CONVECTION TO
CONSIDER THE SYSTEM A TROPICAL DEPRESSION.  SHIP REPORTS AND
QUIKSCAT OBSERVATIONS SUGGEST AN INTENSITY OF 30 KT.  WITH ANOTHER
TWELVE HOURS OR SO OVER WARM WATERS...THE CYCLONE WILL HAVE AN
OPPORTUNITY TO REACH STORM STRENGTH AS IT ACCELERATES
NORTHEASTWARD...BUT SOUTHWESTERLY SHEAR SHOULD KEEP ANY DEVELOPMENT
AS A TROPICAL SYSTEM MINIMAL...AND THE CYCLONE IS EXPECTED TO
BECOME A FRONTAL LOW WITHIN ABOUT 24 HOURS.  LARGE-SCALE MODELS
GENERALLY SUGGEST THAT THE SYSTEM COULD BE A VIGOROUS EXTRATROPICAL
LOW FOR SEVERAL DAYS ACROSS THE NORTH ATLANTIC.  

THE INITIAL MOTION IS 020/14.  A LARGE MID-LATITUDE TROUGH ALONG THE
ATLANTIC U.S. COAST WILL STEER THE DEPRESSION GENERALLY
NORTHEASTWARD UNTIL THE CYCLONE BECOMES EXTRATROPICAL.  MODEL
GUIDANCE IS IN GOOD AGREEMENT AND THE OFFICIAL FORECAST FOLLOWS A
BLEND OF THE GFDL...HWRF...AND GFS GUIDANCE.  THE EXTRATROPICAL
PORTION OF THE FORECAST IS IN GOOD AGREEMENT WITH THE GFS GUIDANCE.
