Hurricane DANIELLE


ZCZC MIATCDAT1 ALL
TTAA00 KNHC DDHHMM
HURRICANE DANIELLE DISCUSSION NUMBER  31
NWS TPC/NATIONAL HURRICANE CENTER MIAMI FL   AL062010
1100 PM AST SAT AUG 28 2010
 
CONVECTION IN THE OUTER EYEWALL OF DANIELLE HAS BECOME DEEPER DURING
THE PAST SEVERAL HOURS...WITH AN OCCASIONAL CELL EVEN FIRING NEAR
THE DECAYED INNER EYEWALL.  SATELLITE CLASSIFICATIONS ARE THE
BASICALLY THE SAME AS BEFORE...SO THE INITIAL INTENSITY REMAINS 90
KT.  A SLOW WEAKENING IS EXPECTED AS THE CYCLONE MOVES OVER COOLER
WATERS AND INCREASING SOUTHWESTERLY SHEAR.  MOST OF THE GLOBAL
MODELS SHOW DANIELLE BECOMING A LARGE AND POWERFUL EXTRATROPICAL
HURRICANE OVER THE NORTH ATLANTIC...AND THE NHC INTENSITY FORECAST
IS BASICALLY AN UPDATE OF THE PREVIOUS ONE.  IT IS POSSIBLE THAT
EXTRATROPICAL TRANSITION COULD BEGIN SOONER THAN SHOWN BELOW...AS
SUGGESTED BY A FEW MODELS.
 
THE INITIAL MOTION ESTIMATE IS FASTER THAN BEFORE...030/17. DANIELLE
IS CURRENTLY ACCELERATING TOWARD THE NORTH-NORTHEAST AS AN UPPER
TROUGH DIVES INTO THE WEST ATLANTIC OCEAN.   IN 24-36 HOURS...THE
THE TROPICAL CYCLONE SHOULD BRIEFLY SLOW DOWN DUE TO A FAST-MOVING
MID-LATITUDE RIDGE TO ITS NORTH.   INCREASING SOUTHWESTERLY FLOW
BETWEEN A LARGE CENTRAL ATLANTIC RIDGE AND ANOTHER MID-LATITUDE
TROUGH SHOULD THEN CAUSE DANIELLE TO BEGIN MOVING RATHER QUICKLY TO
THE NORTHEAST IN A FEW DAYS. WHILE MOST OF THE MODELS ARE IN
REASONABLE AGREEMENT BEFORE THE SYSTEM BECOMES EXTRATROPICAL...THEY
WILDLY DIVERGE FROM THAT POINT ONWARD.  THE NHC FORECAST IS
ADJUSTED EAST OF THE PREVIOUS ONE...CLOSE TO A BLEND OF THE
ECMWF/GFS.
