Tropical Depression TWO-E


ZCZC MIATCDEP2 ALL
TTAA00 KNHC DDHHMM
TROPICAL DEPRESSION TWO-E DISCUSSION NUMBER   1
NWS TPC/NATIONAL HURRICANE CENTER MIAMI FL   EP022008
200 AM PDT FRI JUN 27 2008
 
THE AREA OF LOW PRESSURE THAT HAS BEEN TRACKED FOR A FEW DAYS HAS
DEVELOPED ENOUGH ORGANIZED CONVECTION TO BE CLASSIFIED AS A
TROPICAL DEPRESSION. THE CLOUD PATTERN CONSISTS OF A FAIRLY
WELL-DEFINED CONVECTIVE CURVED BAND WITH AN ESTABLISHED UPPER-LEVEL
OUTFLOW. T-NUMBERS FROM BOTH TAFB AND SAB ARE 2.0 ON THE DVORAK
SCALE.  SINCE THE DEPRESSION IS MOVING OVER WARM WATERS AND THE
SHEAR IS EXPECTED TO REMAIN LOW FOR THE NEXT DAY OR SO...SOME
SLIGHT STRENGTHENING IS INDICATED. THE CYCLONE COULD BECOME A
TROPICAL STORM IN AGREEMENT WITH SHIPS MODEL GUIDANCE. BEYOND 3
DAYS...A GRADUAL WEAKENING SHOULD BEGIN AS THE CYCLONE APPROACHES
COOLER WATERS AND THE SHEAR INCREASES.  IN GENERAL...NUMERICAL
MODELS SUGGEST EITHER WEAKENING OR LITTLE CHANGE IN THE STRUCTURE
OF THE CYCLONE.  

THE BEST ESTIMATE OF THE INITIAL MOTION IS 300 DEGREES AT 7 KNOTS.
THE CYCLONE IS EXPECTED TO CONTINUE ON THIS GENERAL TRACK FOR A DAY
OR SO. THEN...IT COULD TURN MORE TO THE WEST AS A STRONGER MIDDLE-
LEVEL RIDGE DEVELOPS TO THE NORTH. THIS IS BASICALLY THE SOLUTION
OF TRACK GUIDANCE AND GLOBAL MODELS.
