Tropical Depression COLIN


ZCZC MIATCDAT4 ALL
TTAA00 KNHC DDHHMM
TROPICAL DEPRESSION COLIN DISCUSSION NUMBER  19
NWS TPC/NATIONAL HURRICANE CENTER MIAMI FL   AL042010
1100 AM AST SUN AUG 08 2010
 
VISIBLE SATELLITE IMAGERY...RADAR DATA AND SURFACE OBSERVATIONS FROM
BERMUDA INDICATE THAT THE LOW-LEVEL CIRCULATION OF COLIN IS
BECOMING ELONGATED NORTH TO SOUTH AND THAT THE CONVECTIVE ACTIVITY
HAS LITTLE...IF ANY...ORGANIZATION. DVORAK DATA T-NUMBERS FROM SAB
AND TAFB HAVE DECREASED TO BELOW TROPICAL STORM STRENGTH. BASED ON
THE ABOVE...COLIN IS DOWNGRADED TO A TROPICAL DEPRESSION AT THIS
TIME.   

ALTHOUGH THE INTENSITY GUIDANCE STILL SHOWS STRENGTHENING...THIS
SEEMS UNLIKELY AS SHEAR AND DRY AIR CONTINUE TO TAKE A TOLL ON
COLIN. THE NEW INTENSITY FORECAST KEEPS COLIN AS A TROPICAL
DEPRESSION UNTIL DISSIPATION. IF THE CIRCULATION CONTINUES TO
ELONGATE...IT IS POSSIBLE THAT COLIN WILL DEGENERATE INTO A TROUGH
OF LOW PRESSURE LATER TODAY.  THIS SCENARIO IS SUPPORTED BY MOST OF
THE GLOBAL MODELS.
 
COLIN IS MOVING A LITTLE FASTER TOWARD THE NORTH OR 360 DEGREES
AT 10 KT.  THE TRACK GUIDANCE IS IN GOOD AGREEMENT ON TAKING COLIN
OR ITS REMNANTS NORTHWARD...THEN NORTHEASTWARD AHEAD OF A DEEP LAYER
TROUGH ALONG THE EAST COAST OF THE UNITED STATES.  THE NEW TRACK
FORECAST IS VIRTUALLY AN UPDATE OF THE PREVIOUS NHC ADVISORY.
