Tropical Storm ELIDA


ZCZC MIATCDEP1 ALL
TTAA00 KNHC DDHHMM
TROPICAL STORM ELIDA DISCUSSION NUMBER  28
NWS TPC/NATIONAL HURRICANE CENTER MIAMI FL   EP062008
200 PM PDT FRI JUL 18 2008
 
ELIDA IS NOW A MOSTLY EXPOSED SWIRL OF LOW CLOUDS...WITH JUST A
LITTLE BIT OF DEEP CONVECTION LEFT IN THE WESTERN SEMICIRCLE. 
ESTIMATES OF THE MAXIMUM WINDS USING A BLEND OF DVORAK T AND CI
NUMBERS SPAN A WIDE RANGE...BUT THE ADVISORY INTENSITY LEANS TOWARD
THE LOWER END OF THOSE VALUES AND IS SET TO 35 KT.  ELIDA IS OVER
SEA-SURFACE TEMPERATURES OF ABOUT 23 CELSIUS...AND ALONG THE
FORECAST TRACK THEY ARE NOT GOING TO GET MUCH WARMER ANYTIME
SOON...SO THE SYSTEM APPEARS UNLIKELY TO REMAIN A TROPICAL CYCLONE
FOR MORE THAN HALF A DAY OR SO.

THERE SHOULD BE NO SURPRISES REGARDING THE PATH OF ELIDA.  THE
INITIAL MOTION REMAINS 270/13...AND THE CYCLONE AND ITS EVENTUAL
REMNANT LOW SHOULD CONTINUE GENERALLY WESTWARD TO THE SOUTH OF LOW-
TO MID-LEVEL RIDGING TO THE NORTH.  GUIDANCE IS IN GOOD AGREEMENT
AND THE NEW TRACK IS SIMILAR TO THE PREVIOUS ONE.
