Tropical Depression EIGHT-E


ZCZC MIATCDEP3 ALL
TTAA00 KNHC DDHHMM

TROPICAL DEPRESSION EIGHT-E DISCUSSION NUMBER   2
NWS NATIONAL HURRICANE CENTER MIAMI FL       EP082014
800 AM PDT SAT JUL 26 2014

The tropical depression has not changed much during the past
several hours.  Although the system is producing a considerable
amount of deep convection, it is mainly confined to the north side
of the cyclone and is not wrapping around the center.  The initial
intensity remains 30 kt based on a blend of the Dvorak intensity
estimates.  The environment is currently favorable for the
depression to strengthen, but it is not expected to remain that way
for very long.  In about 2 days, the cyclone will be moving over
cooler waters and into an atmosphere of stronger shear and dry air.
The models show less strengthening this cycle, and the official
intensity forecast is a little lower than the previous one based on
this guidance.

The system is moving northwestward at about 13 kt.  A slightly
faster west-northwest to northwest motion is expected during
the next couple of days while the cyclone remains embedded in the
fast flow on the southwest side of a strong mid-level ridge over the
southern United States.  A gradual turn toward the west with a
decrease in forward speed is expected beyond a few days when the
weakening cyclone becomes steered by the lighter low-level flow.
The models are tightly clustered, and the official track forecast
is essentially an update of the previous one.
