Tropical Depression SEVEN-E


ZCZC MIATCDEP2 ALL
TTAA00 KNHC DDHHMM
TROPICAL DEPRESSION SEVEN-E DISCUSSION NUMBER   2
NWS TPC/NATIONAL HURRICANE CENTER MIAMI FL   EP072008
800 AM PDT WED JUL 16 2008

THE CENTER OF THE DEPRESSION IS ON THE NORTHEASTERN EDGE OF THE
CONVECTION. HOWEVER...THE OVERALL PATTERN IS GRADUALLY BECOMING
BETTER ORGANIZED AND THE DEPRESSION IS VERY NEAR TROPICAL STORM
STRENGTH. SHIPS MODEL CONTINUE TO FORECAST STRONG SHEAR OVER THE
DEPRESSION BUT STILL THE ENVIRONMENT FAVORS A SLOW STRENGTHENING AS
INDICATED IN THE OFFICIAL FORECAST. 

THE MID-LEVEL SUBTROPICAL RIDGE WHICH IS CONTROLLING ELIDA'S MOTION
IS ALSO STEERING THE DEPRESSION TOWARD THE WEST. SINCE THIS PATTERN
IS FORECAST TO PERSIST...A CONTINUED WEST-NORTHWEST TRACK IS
INDICATED. THE OFFICIAL FORECAST IS IN THE MIDDLE OF THE GUIDANCE
ENVELOPE AND VERY CLOSE TO THE PREVIOUS FORECAST.
