Tropical Storm LISA


ZCZC MIATCDAT4 ALL
TTAA00 KNHC DDHHMM
TROPICAL STORM LISA DISCUSSION NUMBER   9
NWS TPC/NATIONAL HURRICANE CENTER MIAMI FL   AL142010
1100 PM AST WED SEP 22 2010
 
LISA HAS CHANGED LITTLE IN ORGANIZATION DURING THE LAST SEVERAL
HOURS.  DEEP CONVECTION REMAINS CONFINED TO A SMALL AREA NEAR THE
CENTER AND IN A BAND OVER THE NORTHEASTERN PORTION OF THE
CIRCULATION.  A 2340 UTC ASCAT PASS SHOWED MAXIMUM WINDS NEAR 30 KT
OVER THE NORTHERN SEMICIRCLE.  THE INITIAL WIND SPEED ESTIMATE IS
LOWERED TO 35 KT...AND THIS MIGHT BE GENEROUS.  LISA COULD
STRENGTHEN DURING THE NEXT COUPLE OF DAYS AS IT REMAINS OVER
MARGINALLY WARM WATER AND IN LOW WIND SHEAR ENVIRONMENT.  AFTER
THAT TIME...WESTERLY SHEAR IS ANTICIPATED TO INCREASE SIGNIFICANTLY
AND THAT SHOULD PROMOTE STEADY WEAKENING.
 
LISA HAS BEEN MOVING EASTWARD SINCE THE LAST ADVISORY...AND THE
INITIAL MOTION ESTIMATE IS 090/4.  THE TROPICAL CYCLONE WILL LIKELY
CONTINUE TO MEANDER FOR THE NEXT 12 TO 24 HOURS AS IT REMAINS
CAUGHT IN WEAK STEERING CURRENTS NEAR THE BASE OF A SHARP
DEEP-LAYER TROUGH OVER THE EASTERN ATLANTIC.  A TURN TO THE
NORTHWEST WITH A GRADUAL INCREASE IN FORWARD SPEED IS FORECAST
BEYOND 24 HOURS AS THE TROUGH CUTS-OFF AND SOME RIDGING DEVELOPS
TO THE NORTHEAST OF THE CYCLONE.  THE OFFICIAL TRACK FORECAST IS
ADJUSTED A LITTLE TO THE RIGHT OF THE PREVIOUS ONE...DUE TO THE
INITIAL POSITION AND MOTION AND TO BE IN BETTER AGREEMENT WITH
THE LATEST GUIDANCE.
