Tropical Storm ANA


ZCZC MIATCDAT2 ALL
TTAA00 KNHC DDHHMM
TROPICAL STORM ANA DISCUSSION NUMBER  17
NWS TPC/NATIONAL HURRICANE CENTER MIAMI FL   AL022009
500 AM AST SUN AUG 16 2009
 
AN ASCAT PASS AT 00Z SUGGESTED THAT ANA WAS STILL A TROPICAL STORM
AT THAT TIME...BUT IT CONTINUES MOVING RAPIDLY WESTWARD WITH VERY
LITTLE ASSOCIATED CONVECTION...AND MAY HAVE WEAKENED.  FOR NOW
HOWEVER...THE ADVISORY INTENSITY IS UNCHANGED.  THE ENVIRONMENT
THROUGH WHICH ANA IS MOVING IS VERY DRY...AND THE SYSTEM HAS HAD
DIFFICULTY MAINTAINING CONVECTION.  THERE IS STILL INTENSITY
GUIDANCE SHOWING AT LEAST SOME SHORT TERM INTENSIFICATION...AND SO
THE OFFICIAL FORECAST WILL REFLECT THAT.  LATER ON...THE INTENSITY
FORECAST HAS BEEN LOWERED DUE TO ANTICIPATED INTERACTION WITH LAND.

THERE HAS BEEN LITTLE CHANGE TO THE TRACK FORECAST PHILOSOPHY.  ANA
REMAINS EMBEDDED WITHIN A STRONG TRADE WIND FLOW AND THE MODEL
GUIDANCE IS WELL CLUSTERED.  THE NEW OFFICIAL FORECAST IS A LITTLE
FASTER THAN THE PREVIOUS ONE BUT IS STILL SLOWER THAN MOST OF THE
GUIDANCE.
