Tropical Storm DANIEL


ZCZC MIATCDEP4 ALL
TTAA00 KNHC DDHHMM
 
TROPICAL STORM DANIEL DISCUSSION NUMBER  27
NWS NATIONAL HURRICANE CENTER MIAMI FL       EP042012
200 PM PDT TUE JUL 10 2012
 
A RATHER SMALL AMORPHOUS BLOB IS ALL THAT REMAINS OF THE DEEP
CONVECTION ASSOCIATED WITH DANIEL.  A BLEND OF THE LOWERED CURRENT
INTENSITY AND FINAL-T NUMBERS FROM BOTH AGENCIES RESULTS IN
AN INITIAL INTENSITY OF 45 KT.  DANIEL SHOULD CONTINUE TO SPIN DOWN
AS IT TRAVERSES COOLER 24-25C SSTS AND ENCOUNTERS AN INCREASING
VERTICAL SHEAR ENVIRONMENT.  ACCORDINGLY...THE CYCLONE IS EXPECTED
TO BECOME A REMNANT LOW IN 36 HOURS AND DISSIPATE BY THE END OF THE
FORECAST PERIOD.  THE INTENSITY FORECAST IS CLOSE TO THE PREVIOUS
ADVISORY AND IS A COMPROMISE OF THE SHIPS AND LGEM INTENSITY
GUIDANCE.
 
THE INITIAL MOTION IS WESTWARD OR 270 DEGREES AT 15 KT.  THE
SUBTROPICAL RIDGE ANCHORED TO THE NORTH OF DANIEL IS FORECAST TO
KEEP THE CYCLONE ON A GENERAL WESTWARD HEADING UNTIL DISSIPATION.
THE NHC FORECAST CLOSELY FOLLOWS THE DYNAMICAL MODEL CONSENSUS...THE
PREVIOUS FORECAST TRACK...AND THE GFS/ECMWF ENSEMBLE MEANS. 

BASED ON THE CURRENT FORECAST...DANIEL SHOULD CROSS 140W INTO THE
CENTRAL PACIFIC HURRICANE CENTER AREA OF RESPONSIBILITY WITHIN THE
NEXT 24 HOURS.
