Tropical Storm ELIDA


ZCZC MIATCDEP1 ALL
TTAA00 KNHC DDHHMM
TROPICAL STORM ELIDA DISCUSSION NUMBER  29
NWS TPC/NATIONAL HURRICANE CENTER MIAMI FL   EP062008
800 PM PDT FRI JUL 18 2008
 
AN ASCAT OVERPASS RETRIEVED THIS AFTERNOON INDICATED THAT ELIDA
HAS NOT YET WEAKENED TO A TROPICAL DEPRESSION. THERE REMAINS A SMALL
AREA OF DEEP CONVECTION JUST TO THE EAST OF THE PARTLY EXPOSED
CIRCULATION THAT MAY STILL CONTAIN 35 KT WINDS.  CONSEQUENTLY...THE
INITIAL INTENSITY IS HELD AT 35 KT FOR THIS ADVISORY.  THE CYCLONE
IS MOVING OVER COOLER WATERS...WHICH ULTIMATELY SHOULD REDUCE ELIDA
TO A REMNANT LOW IN 24 HOURS...OR LESS.  THIS WEAKENING IS
REFLECTED IN THE SHIPS AND LGEM...AND IS THE BASIS FOR
THE INTENSITY FORECAST.
 
THE INITIAL MOTION IS ESTIMATED AT A CONSISTENT 280/12...WITHIN THE
LOW- TO MID-LAYER EASTERLY FLOW TO THE SOUTH OF THE SUBTROPICAL
RIDGE.  THE OFFICIAL FORECAST CALLS FOR THIS PERSISTENT WESTWARD
MOTION TO CONTINUE THROUGH THE PERIOD...AS INDICATED BY A CONSENSUS
OF THE DYNAMICAL MODELS.
