Tropical Storm ENRIQUE


ZCZC MIATCDEP2 ALL
TTAA00 KNHC DDHHMM
TROPICAL STORM ENRIQUE DISCUSSION NUMBER   8
NWS TPC/NATIONAL HURRICANE CENTER MIAMI FL   EP072009
ISSUED BY THE HYDROMETEOROLOGICAL PREDICTION CENTER CAMP SPRINGS MD
800 AM PDT WED AUG 05 2009
 
A BURST OF OVERNIGHT CONVECTION HAS GENERALLY IMPROVED THE
APPEARANCE OF ENRIQUE WITH A SLIGHT SATELLITE-BASED ADJUSTMENT OF
THE DIFFUSE CENTER TO THE WEST TOWARDS THE BEST CONVECTION. 
DEVELOPMENT IN THIS DIRECTION WILL SOON LEAD TO WEAKENING GIVEN ITS
RELATIVELY CLOSE PROXIMITY TO THE MUCH-STRONGER FELICIA.  VARIOUS
GUIDANCE...INCLUDING HWRF AND GHM...INDICATE A FAIRLY RAPID
DISSIPATION IN ABOUT 24 HOURS...AT WHICH TIME THE ENERGY IS
ABSORBED INTO FELICIA...BUT WILL CONTINUE TO ADVERTISE DISSIPATION
TO A DEPRESSION WITHIN 48 HOURS.    

 
ENRIQUE IS MOVING TOWARD THE WEST-NORTHWEST OR 305 DEGREES AT 14
KNOTS...EMBEDDED WITHIN THE FLOW BETWEEN FELICIA AND THE
SUBTROPICAL RIDGE. MODELS ARE INDICATING A FUJIWHARA EFFECT OWING TO
FELICIA THAT WILL GRADUALLY TURN THE MOTION ALMOST DUE WEST BY 24
HOURS...MOST MODELS DO NOT KEEP THE CYCLONE INTACT BEYOND 36 HOURS.
