Tropical Storm JOSE


ZCZC MIATCDAT1 ALL
TTAA00 KNHC DDHHMM
TROPICAL DEPRESSION JOSE DISCUSSION NUMBER   6
NWS TPC/NATIONAL HURRICANE CENTER MIAMI FL
11 AM EDT TUE AUG 23 2005
 
SATELLITE IMAGERY AND SURFACE OBSERVATIONS INDICATE JOSE IS RAPIDLY
WEAKENING INLAND OVER THE MOUNTAINOUS TERRAIN OF EAST-CENTRAL
MEXICO. ADDITIONAL WEAKENING IS EXPECTED AS THE CYCLONE CONTINUES
TO MOVE WESTWARD...OR 270/08...ALONG THE SOUTH SIDE OF A STRONG
MID-LEVEL RIDGE LOCATED ACROSS NORTHERN MEXICO AND TEXAS.
 
JOSE COULD DISSIPATE SOONER THAN THE OFFICIAL FORECAST IS INDICATING
...BUT A 12H FORECAST POINT WAS PROVIDED FOR CONTINUITY PURPOSES.
ALTHOUGH JOSE IS DISSIPATING AS A TROPICAL CYCLONE...THE SLOW
MOVING REMNANT MID-LEVEL CIRCULATION WILL CONTINUE TO GENERATE
WIDESPREAD SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS CAPABLE OF PRODUCING LOCALLY
HEAVY RAINFALL AND POTENTIALLY DEADLY FLASH FLOODS AND MUD SLIDES
ACROSS PORTIONS OF CENTRAL MEXICO FOR THE DAY OR TWO.

THIS WILL BE THE LAST OFFICIAL FORECAST ON THIS SYSTEM.
