A PAIR OF ASCAT PASSES FROM 1342Z AND 1436Z INDICATE THAT GABRIELLE
IS STRONGER THAN PREVIOUSLY ESTIMATED. BOTH PASSES SHOWED SEVERAL
45-KT WIND RETRIEVALS...AND THAT IS THE INITIAL INTENSITY FOR THIS
SPECIAL ADVISORY. THE INTENSITY FORECAST HAS BEEN ADJUSTED UPWARD
AT 12 AND 24 HOURS TO 50 KT BASED ON THE INCREASE IN THE INITIAL
INTENSITY. THE ANALYZED 34-KT WIND RADII HAVE ALSO BEEN ADJUSTED
OUTWARD BASED ON THE ASCAT DATA...AND THEIR FORECAST HAS BEEN
MODIFIED AS WELL TO REFLECT THE LARGER WIND FIELD. AN AIR FORCE
RESERVE AIRCRAFT WILL INVESTIGATE GABRIELLE LATER THIS AFTERNOON TO
PROVIDE MORE DETAILED INFORMATION ON THE STRENGTH AND STRUCTURE OF
THE CYCLONE.

NO CHANGES WERE MADE TO THE PREVIOUS TRACK FORECAST FOR THIS SPECIAL
ADVISORY. 

NOTE THAT THIS SPECIAL ADVISORY TAKES THE PLACE OF THE 200 PM
