Tropical Depression ONE-E


ZCZC MIATCDEP1 ALL
TTAA00 KNHC DDHHMM
TROPICAL DEPRESSION ONE-E DISCUSSION NUMBER   5
NWS TPC/NATIONAL HURRICANE CENTER MIAMI FL   EP012007
800 PM PDT SUN MAY 27 2007
 
DEEP CONVECTION STARTED TO REDEVELOP NEAR THE LOW-LEVEL CIRCULATION
CENTER AT ABOUT 23Z...AND IT HAS INCREASED SOMEWHAT SINCE THEN.
CLOUD TOPS HAVE RECENTLY BECOME AS COLD AS -80C... FAVORING THE
WESTERN SEMICIRCLE IN AN ENVIRONMENT OF MODEST EAST-SOUTHEASTERLY
WIND SHEAR.  THE CONVECTIVE COMEBACK CERTAINLY MEANS THIS SYSTEM IS
STILL A TROPICAL DEPRESSION...BUT SINCE IT HAS BEEN STRUGGLING
MIGHTILY TODAY...IT IS HARD TO HAVE CONFIDENCE THAT IT WILL
STRENGTHEN MUCH IN THE LONG TERM.  THE THERMODYNAMIC PREDICTORS IN
THE SHIPS MODEL CONTINUE TO BE NEGATIVE CONTRIBUTORS TO THE
FORECAST INTENSITY CHANGE.  MEANWHILE THE SSTS AND WIND SHEAR WILL
PROBABLY NOT CHANGE THAT MUCH ALONG THE FORECAST TRACK.  THE NEW
OFFICIAL INTENSITY FORECAST IS SIMILAR TO THE PREVIOUS ONE...WITH
JUST A SLIGHTLY LESSER INTENSITY BEYOND 36 HOURS...WHICH IS IN
BETWEEN THE SHIPS AND LGE SOLUTIONS.
 
THE INITIAL MOTION ESTIMATE IS SLOW WESTWARD OR 270/4...ALTHOUGH A
LITTLE FASTER THAN BEFORE...PERHAPS BECAUSE THE DEEP CONVECTION IS
CAUSING A RESPONSE TO THE UPPER-LEVEL EASTERLIES.  A MID-LEVEL
RIDGE... HOWEVER...IS CURRENTLY CENTERED NEAR 15N/125W AND WILL
PROBABLY PREVENT THE CYCLONE FROM MOVING TOO MUCH TOWARD THE WEST
FOR AT LEAST THE NEXT THREE DAYS.  THE OFFICIAL FORECAST GENERALLY
FOLLOWS THE SCENARIO SHOWN BY THE DYNAMICAL MODELS OF A SLIGHTLY
SOUTH OF WEST MOTION DURING THAT TIME.  LATER IN THE FORECAST
PERIOD...A WESTWARD MOTION IS FORECAST TO RESUME WHEN THE CYCLONE
FINDS ITSELF SOUTH OF THE MID-LEVEL RIDGE.
