Hurricane EMILIA


ZCZC MIATCDEP5 ALL
TTAA00 KNHC DDHHMM
 
HURRICANE EMILIA DISCUSSION NUMBER  20
NWS NATIONAL HURRICANE CENTER MIAMI FL       EP052012
800 AM PDT THU JUL 12 2012
 
EMILIA HAS CONTINUED TO FLUCTUATE IN INTENSITY DURING THE PAST
SEVERAL HOURS...AND SATELLITE ESTIMATES INDICATE THAT THE WINDS ARE
AGAIN 100 KNOTS. THE HURRICANE HAS A DISTINCT WARM EYE SURROUNDED
BY A RING OF VERY DEEP CONVECTION AND NO BANDING FEATURES. THIS
ANNULAR PATTERN NORMALLY WOULD SUGGEST LITTLE CHANGE IN INTENSITY
IN THE SHORT TERM. HOWEVER...COOL WATERS ARE NEARBY...AND EMILIA
SHOULD FINALLY BEGIN TO WEAKEN LATER TODAY. THE CYCLONE IS FORECAST
TO BECOME A REMNANT LOW BY THE END OF THE FORECAST PERIOD.

THE SUBTROPICAL HIGH TO THE NORTH HAS EXPANDED AND HAS FORCED EMILIA
TO MOVE ON A MORE WESTWARD TRACK...270 DEGREES AT 10 KNOTS. THE
SUBTROPICAL HIGH IS FORECAST BY THE GLOBAL MODELS TO PERSIST OR
EVEN STRENGTHEN A LITTLE. THIS PATTERN WOULD RESULT IN A GENERAL
WESTWARD MOTION UNTIL DISSIPATION. THE OFFICIAL FORECAST
WAS ADJUSTED A LITTLE BIT SOUTHWARD AND IS NOW ON THE SOUTHERN EDGE
OF THE GUIDANCE ENVELOPE IN BETWEEN THE GFS AND THE ECMWF.
