Hurricane GREG


ZCZC MIATCDEP2 ALL
TTAA00 KNHC DDHHMM
 
HURRICANE GREG DISCUSSION NUMBER  11
NWS NATIONAL HURRICANE CENTER MIAMI FL       EP072011
200 AM PDT FRI AUG 19 2011
 
THE CLOUD PATTERN HAS CONTINUED TO DETERIORATE...AND CONVECTIVE TOPS
ARE WARMING AT THIS TIME. T-NUMBERS ARE DECREASING BUT STILL
SUPPORT AN INITIAL INTENSITY OF 65 KNOTS. THE NORTHWEST PORTION OF
THE CYCLONE IS ALREADY OVER COOLER WATERS...AND SOON THE ENTIRE
CIRCULATION WILL FEEL THE INFLUENCE OF THE LOWER SEA SURFACE
TEMPERATURES AND INCREASING SOUTHERLY WIND SHEAR. THE OFFICIAL
FORECAST CALLS FOR WEAKENING...AND GREG COULD BECOME A REMNANT LOW
IN 4 DAYS OR EARLIER.
 
THERE HAS BEEN NO SIGNIFICANT CHANGE IN TRACK...AND THE INITIAL
MOTION IS 280 DEGREES AT 12 KNOTS. GREG WILL LIKELY BE STEERED
TOWARD THE WEST BY THE SUBTROPICAL RIDGE...BUT AS THE CYCLONE
WEAKENS AND BECOMES A SHALLOW SYSTEM...IT WILL PROBABLY MOVE TOWARD
THE WEST OR WEST-SOUTHWEST EMBEDDED IN THE LOW-LEVEL FLOW.  IN
FACT...DYNAMICAL TRACK MODELS CONSISTENTLY FORECAST GREG TO MOVE
WEST-SOUTHWESTWARD BEYOND 2 DAYS.

GREG JUST PASSED TO THE NORTH OF CLARION ISLAND...AND DATA FROM A
MEXICAN NAVY WEATHER STATION WAS VERY HELPFUL IN TRACKING THE
CYCLONE.
