Tropical Storm BORIS


ZCZC MIATCDEP2 ALL
TTAA00 KNHC DDHHMM
TROPICAL STORM BORIS SPECIAL DISCUSSION NUMBER  12
NWS TPC/NATIONAL HURRICANE CENTER MIAMI FL   EP022008
500 PM PDT SUN JUN 29 2008
 
THE PURPOSE OF THIS SPECIAL ADVISORY IS TO INCREASE THE INITIAL AND
FORECAST INTENSITIES OF BORIS.  OVER THE PAST COUPLE OF HOURS...A
RAGGED EYE HAS BEEN APPARENT IN VISIBLE SATELLITE IMAGERY.  IN
ADDITION...A RECENT MICROWAVE PASS INDICATES THAT THE LOW-LEVEL
CENTER OF BORIS IS REASONABLY CO-LOCATED WITH THE VISIBLE EYE
FEATURE.  THE CIMSS ADT ESTIMATES THE INTENSITY OF THE CYCLONE TO
BE JUST BELOW HURRICANE STRENGTH.  AS A RESULT...THE ADVISORY
INTENSITY IS INCREASED TO 60 KT.  

WHILE BORIS COULD REACH HURRICANE STRENGTH TONIGHT...THE GENERAL
SLOW WEAKENING SCENARIO FROM PREVIOUS ADVISORIES IS RETAINED.  THE
TRACK FORECAST HAS BEEN ADJUSTED ONLY SLIGHTLY TO THE SOUTH OF THE
PREVIOUS ADVISORY.
