Tropical Storm LORENZO


ZCZC MIATCDAT3 ALL
TTAA00 KNHC DDHHMM
 
TROPICAL STORM LORENZO DISCUSSION NUMBER   4
NWS NATIONAL HURRICANE CENTER MIAMI FL       AL132013
500 AM AST TUE OCT 22 2013

ALTHOUGH DEEP CONVECTION HAS BEEN INCREASING DURING THE PAST SEVERAL
HOURS...MICROWAVE IMAGES INDICATE THAT THE LOW-LEVEL CENTER IS
LOCATED NEAR THE SOUTHWESTERN EDGE OF THIS DEEP CLOUDINESS.  THE
LATEST DVORAK CLASSIFICATIONS FROM TAFB...SAB...AND UW-CIMSS ADT
SUPPORT MAINTAINING THE INITIAL WIND SPEED AT 35 KT.  LORENZO COULD
STRENGTHEN A LITTLE TODAY BEFORE NORTHWESTERLY WIND SHEAR INCREASES
SUBSTANTIALLY.  THE GFS AND ECMWF MODELS SHOW THE VERTICAL
CIRCULATION BECOMING HIGHLY TILTED IN ABOUT 24 HOURS DUE TO THE
STRONG SHEAR.  IN ADDITION...DRIER AIR AND DECREASING SEA SURFACE
TEMPERATURES ALONG THE EXPECTED TRACK OF LORENZO SHOULD AID IN THE
WEAKENING PROCESS.  THE CYCLONE IS EXPECTED TO DISSIPATE IN 3 TO 4
DAYS...BUT THERE IS SOME GUIDANCE THAT SHOWS THIS OCCURRING SOONER.

LORENZO IS GRADUALLY TURNING TO THE RIGHT...AND THE LATEST INITIAL
MOTION ESTIMATE IS 070/7.  AN EAST-NORTHEASTWARD TO EASTWARD MOTION
IS EXPECTED DURING THE NEXT DAY OR SO WHILE THE STORM MOVES IN THE
WESTERLY FLOW ON THE NORTH SIDE OF A SUBTROPICAL RIDGE.  THE
WEAKENING CYCLONE IS FORECAST TO TURN NORTHEASTWARD BY LATE
WEDNESDAY OR THURSDAY AHEAD OF AN APPROACHING COLD FRONT.  THE
MODELS ARE IN GOOD AGREEMENT...AND ONLY SMALL CHANGES WERE MADE TO
THE PREVIOUS TRACK FORECAST.
