Tropical Storm GABRIELLE


ZCZC MIATCDAT2 ALL
TTAA00 KNHC DDHHMM
TROPICAL STORM GABRIELLE SPECIAL DISCUSSION NUMBER   7
NWS TPC/NATIONAL HURRICANE CENTER MIAMI FL   AL072007
800 AM EDT SUN SEP 09 2007
 
REPORTS FROM THE AIR FORCE RESERVE UNIT RECONNAISSANCE AIRCRAFT
INDICATE THAT GABRIELLE HAS STRENGTHENED.  THE AIRCRAFT REPORTED A
PEAK FLIGHT-LEVEL WIND OF 61 KT ABOUT 2 NMI SOUTHEAST OF THE
CENTER...WHICH HAS REFORMED WITHIN THE DEEP CONVECTION UNDERNEATH
THE MID-LEVEL ROTATION OBERSERVED OVERNIGHT.  THE FLIGHT-LEVEL WIND
SUPPORTS AN INITIAL INTENSITY OF 45 KT.  WHILE IT IS POSSIBLE THAT
THIS MESOSCALE VORTEX COULD DISSIPATE BEFORE GABRIELLE MAKES
LANDFALL...IT HAS PERSISTED AND BUILT DOWNWARD OVER THE PAST
SEVERAL HOURS AND IT SEEMS PRUDENT TO ASSUME THAT THESE TRENDS
COULD CONTINUE FOR SEVERAL MORE HOURS.  THE FORECAST INTENSITY IS
THEREFORE INCREASED TO 55 KT...ALTHOUGH IT SHOULD BE EMPHASIZED
THAT THE INCREASED WINDS EXTEND ONLY A FEW MILES FROM THE CENTER.

A SLIGHT WESTWARD ADJUSTMENT HAS BEEN MADE TO THE 12 HOUR FORECAST
POINT...AND THE WIND RADII HAVE BEEN ADJUSTED TO REFLECT THE NEW
INTENSITY FORECAST.
