Tropical Storm KENNETH


ZCZC MIATCDEP3 ALL
TTAA00 KNHC DDHHMM
 
TROPICAL STORM KENNETH DISCUSSION NUMBER  19
NWS NATIONAL HURRICANE CENTER MIAMI FL       EP132011
100 AM PST THU NOV 24 2011
 
MICROWAVE DATA INDICATE THAT THE LOW-LEVEL CENTER CONTINUES TO BE
LOCATED ON THE NORTHWESTERN EDGE OF AN AREA OF VERY DEEP CONVECTION.
GIVEN THAT THE CLOUD PATTERN NOR THE DVORAK T-NUMBERS HAVE CHANGED
SIGNIFICANTLY DURING THE PAST FEW HOURS...THE INITIAL INTENSITY IS
KEPT AT 50 KNOTS AT THIS TIME. HOWEVER...A RECENT ASCT PASS SUGGESTS
THAT WINDS ARE PROBABLY A LITTLE WEAKER. KENNETH IS FORECAST TO
GRADUALLY MOVE INTO AN INCREASINGLY HOSTILE ENVIRONMENT OF HIGH
SHEAR AND COOLER SEA SURFACE TEMPERATURES RESULTING IN WEAKENING.
 
KENNETH IS MOVING TOWARD THE WEST-NORTHWEST OR 285 DEGREES AT 9
KNOTS. A TURN TO THE WEST IS ANTICIPATED AS THE CYCLONE WEAKENS AND
BECOMES A SHALLOW SYSTEM STEERED BY THE LOW-LEVEL FLOW.
THIS IS THE SOLUTION UNANIMOUSLY PROVIDED BY THE AVAILABLE
GUIDANCE.
