TTAA00 KNHC DDHHMM
TROPICAL STORM FELICIA SPECIAL DISCUSSION NUMBER   4
NWS TPC/NATIONAL HURRICANE CENTER MIAMI FL   EP082009
1000 AM PDT TUE AUG 04 2009

THIS SPECIAL ADVISORY IS BEING ISSUED TO REVISE THE TRACK AND
INTENSITY OF FELICIA.  A 1327 UTC TRMM MICROWAVE PASS RECEIVED JUST
AFTER ISSUANCE OF THE PREVIOUS ADVISORY SHOWS THE DEVELOPMENT OF AN
EYEWALL-LIKE FEATURE.  IN ADDITION...RECENT VISIBLE IMAGERY SHOWS A
WELL-ORGANIZED TROPICAL CYCLONE WITH HINTS OF AN EYE.  SPECIAL
DVORAK CLASSIFICATIONS FROM TAFB AND SAB INDICATE THAT FELICIA IS
NEAR HURRICANE INTENSITY AND THE INITIAL INTENSITY IS RAISED TO 60
KT.  THE INTENSITY FORECAST IS INCREASED AND IS BASICALLY A BLEND
OF THE SHIPS/LGEM MODELS.  
 
THE MICROWAVE DATA ALSO INDICATE THAT FELICIA IS CENTERED FARTHER
SOUTH THAN PREVIOUSLY ESTIMATED.  THE OFFICIAL FORECAST TRACK HAS
BEEN ADJUSTED SOUTHWARD TO ACCOUNT FOR THE RELOCATION.
