Tropical Storm CRISTINA


ZCZC MIATCDEP3 ALL
TTAA00 KNHC DDHHMM
TROPICAL STORM CRISTINA DISCUSSION NUMBER   9
NWS TPC/NATIONAL HURRICANE CENTER MIAMI FL   EP032008
200 PM PDT SUN JUN 29 2008
 
ALTHOUGH VISIBLE AND MICROWAVE IMAGERY INDICATE CRISTINA HAS BECOME
INTERMITTENTLY PARTLY EXPOSED DUE TO INCREASING EASTERLY
SHEAR...THE CYCLONE INSISTS UPON REMAINING AT TROPICAL STORM
STRENGTH.  AN IMPRESSIVE BURST OF DEEP CONVECTION WITH VERY COLD
CLOUD TOPS HAS ONCE AGAIN REDEVELOPED NEAR THE CENTER. 
THEREFORE...THE INITIAL INTENSITY HOLDS AT 35 KT FOR THIS ADVISORY.
 
THE INTENSITY FORECAST REMAINS UNCHANGED AND FOLLOWS THE SHIPS AND
ICON MODELS.  CRISTINA IS MOVING WITHIN A DRYER MORE STABLE
ATMOSPHERE AND OVER COOLER WATERS...WHICH SHOULD CAUSE THE SYSTEM
TO BECOME A REMNANT LOW IN ABOUT 36 HOURS.
 
INITIAL MOTION IS ESTIMATED AT 270/8.  THE DEPRESSION IS MOVING
WITHIN THE DEEP LAYER EASTERLY FLOW PRODUCED BY A STRENGTHENING
MID-TROPOSPHERIC RIDGE TO THE NORTH. THE EVOLVING LARGE SCALE
STEERING PATTERN SHOULD KEEP THE CYCLONE MOVING IN THIS GENERAL
MOTION THROUGH THE FORECAST PERIOD.
