Tropical Storm ANDREA


ZCZC MIATCDAT1 ALL
TTAA00 KNHC DDHHMM
 
TROPICAL STORM ANDREA DISCUSSION NUMBER   6
NWS NATIONAL HURRICANE CENTER MIAMI FL       AL012013
1100 PM EDT THU JUN 06 2013
 
ANDREA HAS WEAKENED CONSIDERABLY SINCE MOVING INLAND EARLIER THIS
EVENING. THE ONLY REPORT OF TROPICAL-STORM-FORCE WINDS ON LAND OR
OVER WATER HAS COME FROM A SHIP OBSERVATION EAST OF SAINT
AUGUSTINE...AND THE INITIAL INTENSITY HAS BEEN LOWERED TO 40 KT.
ANY WINDS THIS STRONG ARE LIKELY OCCURRING IN RANBANDS OFFSHORE TO
THE EAST OF THE CENTER. THE SATELLITE PRESENTATION OF ANDREA BEARS
LITTLE RESEMBLANCE TO A TROPICAL CYCLONE...WITH A PRONOUNCED DRY
INTRUSION NOTED OVER AND SOUTHWEST OF THE CENTER AND THE DEEP
CONVECTION IN A BAND WELL REMOVED TO THE EAST AND SOUTHEAST. GIVEN
THAT ONLY SHALLOW CONVECTION IS OCCURRING NEAR THE CENTER...
INTERACTION WITH BAROCLINIC FEATURES WILL INCREASINGLY BECOME THE
MECHANISM SUPPORTING THE CYCLONE THROUGH THE FORECAST PERIOD. AS
ANDREA IS ABSORBED BY A LIFTING MID/UPPER-LEVEL TROUGH...GLOBAL
MODEL GUIDANCE SHOWS LITTLE CHANGE IN INTENSITY DURING THE FORECAST
PERIOD. THE NEW NHC FORECAST FOLLOWS THIS THINKING...AND SHOWS
ANDREA BECOMING POST-TROPICAL BY 24 HOURS. HOWEVER...THIS COULD
OCCUR SOONER IF THE CONVECTIVE STRUCTURE DOES NOT IMPROVE.
 
THE INITIAL MOTION IS 045/13...AS THE CENTER SLOWED A LITTLE WHILE
MOVING ONSHORE. THE TRACK MODEL GUIDANCE REMAINS IN VERY GOOD
AGREEMENT SHOWING THE CYCLONE ACCELERATING NORTHEASTWARD ALONG THE
U.S. EAST COAST AHEAD OF THE AFOREMENTIONED TROUGH AND THEN TURNING
QUICKLY EASTWARD OVER THE NORTH ATLANTIC. THE NEW NHC FORECST IS
A LITTLE TO THE RIGHT OF THE PREVIOUS ONE FOR THE FIRST 24 HOURS DUE
TO THE INITIAL MOTION AND IS LARGELY AN UPDATE OF THE PREVIOUS
PACKAGE AFTERWARD. THE NHC TRACK IS CLOSE TO A BLEND OF THE GFS AND
ECMWF AND ALSO LIES NEAR THE FSU SUPERENSEMBLE.
 
BASED ON THE ASSUMPTION THAT ANDREA WILL BECOME POST-TROPICAL IN
ABOUT 24 HOURS...WE DO NOT EXPECT TO EXTEND THE TROPICAL WARNINGS
ANY FARTHER NORTH ALONG THE COAST. OUR CURRENT INTENTION IS THAT
ANY HAZARDOUS WIND CONDITIONS FROM THE DELMARVA PENINSULA NORTHWARD
TO NEW ENGLAND WOULD BE HANDLED BY LOCAL NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE
WARNING PRODUCTS.
