Tropical Depression ONE


ZCZC MIATCDAT1 ALL
TTAA00 KNHC DDHHMM
TROPICAL DEPRESSION ONE DISCUSSION NUMBER   3
NWS TPC/NATIONAL HURRICANE CENTER MIAMI FL   AL012009
1100 PM AST THU MAY 28 2009
 
THE LAST FEW VISIBLE IMAGES INDICATED THAT THE LOW-LEVEL CENTER OF
THE DEPRESSION WAS BECOMING SOMEWHAT EXPOSED TO THE NORTHWEST OF
THE DEEP CONVECTION.  THE CONVECTION ITSELF HAS SHRUNK A BIT IN SIZE
OVER THE PAST FEW HOURS...AND DATA T-NUMBERS HAVE FALLEN TO 1.5
FROM SAB AND REMAIN 2.0 FROM TAFB.  A QUIKSCAT PASS AT 2330 UTC
SHOWED A FEW TROPICAL-STORM-FORCE VECTORS THAT APPEAR TO HAVE BEEN
AFFECTED BY RAIN.  THEREFORE...THE INITIAL INTENSITY IS BEING
HELD AT 30 KT. 

SEA SURFACE TEMPERATURE DATA SHOW THAT THE DEPRESSION IS CURRENTLY
HUGGING THE NORTH WALL OF THE GULF STREAM...AND THE FORECAST TRACK
TAKES THE CENTER NORTHWARD ACROSS THE WALL OVER COLDER WATERS
WITHIN THE NEXT 12 HOURS. THE OFFICIAL FORECAST STILL ALLOWS FOR
THE POSSIBILITY THAT THE DEPRESSION COULD BECOME A TROPICAL STORM
BEFORE THIS HAPPENS...BUT IT WILL HAVE TO HAPPEN SOON. THE GLOBAL
MODEL GUIDANCE GENERALLY INDICATES THAT THE DEPRESSION WILL BE
TANGLED WITHIN A BAROCLINIC ZONE TO ITS NORTH WITHIN THE NEXT 24
HOURS...SO THE OFFICIAL FORECAST CALLS FOR IT TO BE EXTRATROPICAL
AT THAT POINT. DISSIPATION IS EXPECTED BY 48 HOURS AS THE SYSTEM IS
OVERTAKEN BY ANOTHER LOW PRESSURE SYSTEM CURRENTLY NEAR NEW
ENGLAND.
 
THE DEPRESSION HAS BEEN MOVING A LITTLE SOUTH OF THE PREVIOUS TRACK
AND THE BULK OF THE MODELS.  THE INITIAL MOTION IS 070/13 AS THE
SYSTEM IS BEING STEERED BETWEEN THE SUBTROPICAL RIDGE AND A LARGE
TROUGH OVER EASTERN NORTH AMERICA.  THE OFFICIAL FORECAST IS ON THE
SOUTH SIDE OF THE GUIDANCE ENVELOPE.
