Tropical Storm CINDY


ZCZC MIATCDAT3 ALL
TTAA00 KNHC DDHHMM
TROPICAL STORM CINDY DISCUSSION NUMBER   8
NWS TPC/NATIONAL HURRICANE CENTER MIAMI FL
11 AM EDT TUE JUL 05 2005

THE STORM APPEARS TO BE MOVING DUE NORTH...AND A WEAK SHORTWAVE
TROUGH APPROACHING THE MISSISSIPPI VALLEY IS EXPECTED TO INDUCE A
TURN TOWARD THE NORTH-NORTHEAST WITHIN 12-24 HOURS.  THEREFORE THE
OFFICIAL TRACK FORECAST IS ADJUSTED SLIGHTLY TO THE RIGHT OF THE
PREVIOUS ONE.  THIS IS IN REASONABLE AGREEMENT WITH THE MODEL
CONSENSUS.  THE TROPICAL STORM WARNING HAS ALSO BEEN SHIFTED
EASTWARD A BIT.

CINDY REMAINS A RATHER ASYMMETRIC STORM WITH MOST OF THE STRONG
WINDS AND HEAVY PRECIPITATION OVER THE EASTERN SEMICIRCLE.  SURFACE
OBSERVATIONS INDICATE THAT THE INTENSITY IS ABOUT 45 KT.  SOME
ADDITIONAL STRENGTHENING IS POSSIBLE BEFORE LANDFALL...BUT BECAUSE
OF MODEST SOUTHWESTERLY SHEAR OVER THE AREA...SIGNIFICANT
INTENSIFICATION IS NOT LIKELY.

PREDICTED STORM SURGE VALUES HAVE BEEN ADJUSTED BASED ON THE
INTENSITY FORECAST AND A REEVALUATION OF THE LATEST SLOSH MODEL
RUNS.
