Tropical Depression FERNAND


ZCZC MIATCDAT1 ALL
TTAA00 KNHC DDHHMM
 
TROPICAL DEPRESSION FERNAND DISCUSSION NUMBER   5
NWS NATIONAL HURRICANE CENTER MIAMI FL       AL062013
1000 AM CDT MON AUG 26 2013
 
SATELLITE AND RADAR DATA SHOW THAT FERNAND CONTINUES TO MOVE INLAND
OVER EASTERN MEXICO.  ALTHOUGH THE SYSTEM IS STILL PRODUCING A
LARGE AREA OF SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS OVER THE SOUTHWESTERN GULF
OF MEXICO...WIND OBSERVATIONS INDICATE THAT THE INNER CORE HAS BEEN
DISRUPTED BY THE INTERACTION WITH LAND...AND FERNAND HAS WEAKENED
BELOW TROPICAL STORM STRENGTH.  CONTINUED WEAKENING WILL OCCUR AS
THE CYCLONE MOVES FARTHER INLAND...AND THE CYCLONE IS EXPECTED TO 
BECOME A REMNANT LOW LATER TODAY AND DISSIPATE IN A DAY OR SO...IF
NOT SOONER.  THE INITIAL MOTION ESTIMATE IS 305/8 KT.  THE TROPICAL
DEPRESSION IS FORECAST TO MOVE WEST-NORTHWESTWARD TO NORTHWESTWARD
UNTIL DISSIPATION.   
 
HEAVY RAINFALL ASSOCIATED WITH THE CYCLONE WILL SPREAD INLAND OVER
EASTERN AND CENTRAL PORTIONS OF MEXICO DURING THE NEXT COUPLE OF
DAYS.  THESE RAINS ARE LIKELY TO CAUSE LIFE-THREATENING FLASH
FLOODING AND MUD SLIDES.
