POST-TROPICAL CYCLONE JERRY DISCUSSION NUMBER 20
NWS NATIONAL HURRICANE CENTER MIAMI FL AL112013
500 PM AST THU OCT 03 2013

JERRY LACKS SUFFICIENT ORGANIZED DEEP CONVECTION TO QUALIFY AS A
TROPICAL CYCLONE...AND IS THEREFORE BEING DESIGNATED AS A REMNANT
LOW PRESSURE SYSTEM. THE INTENSITY ESTIMATE REMAINS AT 30 KT...
ALTHOUGH THIS MAY BE GENEROUS. THE LOW WILL CONTINUE TO TRAVERSE
PROGRESSIVELY COOLER WATERS...AND VERTICAL SHEAR OVER THE SYSTEM IS
FORECAST TO INCREASE TO NEAR 25 KT IN 48 HOURS. REGENERATION IS
UNLIKELY AND BASED ON A BLEND OF THE GFS AND ECMWF SOLUTIONS...THE
SYSTEM IS EXPECTED TO OPEN UP INTO A TROUGH AFTER 48 HOURS.

INITIAL MOTION IS A LITTLE FASTER...060/12. POST-TROPICAL JERRY IS
FORECAST TO MOVE EAST-NORTHEASTWARD TO NORTHEASTWARD AHEAD OF A
BROAD MID-LATITUDE TROUGH. THE OFFICIAL TRACK FORECAST IS VERY
SIMILAR TO THE PREVIOUS ONE AND LIES BETWEEN THE GFS PREDICTION AND
THE MULTI-MODEL CONSENSUS.

THIS IS THE LAST ADVISORY ON JERRY ISSUED BY THE NATIONAL HURRICANE
CENTER. ADDITIONAL INFORMATION ON THIS SYSTEM CAN BE FOUND IN HIGH
SEAS FORECASTS ISSUED BY THE NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE...UNDER AWIPS
HEADER NFDHSFAT1 AND WMO HEADER FZNT01 KWBC.

FORECASTER PASCH

Karen has to time for RI. However, she is soon hitting Dry air, and wind shear. It can make it to 75mph possibly. However I would just go for 70 mph. NHC brings it to 75mph... And GFS wants a 90mph or something, EMCWF wants a weak tropical storm.

TROPICAL STORM KAREN DISCUSSION NUMBER 2
NWS NATIONAL HURRICANE CENTER MIAMI FL AL122013
1000 AM CDT THU OCT 03 2013

KAREN CONTINUES TO HAVE A SOMEWHAT SHEARED APPEARANCE ON SATELLITE
IMAGERY...WITH THE DEEP CONVECTION DISPLACED TO THE NORTHEAST OF THE
LOW-LEVEL CENTER. THIS IS CONSISTENT WITH THE 20 OR SO KT OF SHEAR
ANALYZED OVER THE CYCLONE BY THE SHIPS MODEL. THE INITIAL INTENSITY
IS RAISED TO 55 KT BASED ON SEVERAL BIAS-CORRECTED SFMR WINDS IN
THE 50-55 KT RANGE REPORTED BY THE AIRCRAFT. WITH MODERATE SHEAR
EXPECTED TO CONTINUE...ONLY GRADUAL STRENGTHENING IS EXPECTED
BEFORE THE SHEAR INCREASES FURTHER IN ABOUT 48 HOURS. SOME
WEAKENING IS ANTICIPATED AS KAREN APPROACHES THE GULF COAST...BUT
THE STORM COULD STILL BE NEAR HURRICANE STRENGTH AT LANDFALL. THE
NHC FORECAST IS CLOSE TO THE SHIPS AND LGEM MODELS THROUGH THE
PERIOD. KAREN SHOULD BE INVOLVED WITH A FRONTAL ZONE BY DAY 4 AND
ABSORBED BY THE FRONT BY DAY 5.

THE INITIAL MOTION ESTIMATE IS STILL A RELATIVELY UNCERTAIN 330/10.
THE TRACK FORECAST REASONINS HAS NOT CHANGED...AS KAREN WILL MOVE
AROUND THE PERIPHERY OF THE SUBTROPICAL RIDGE DURING THE NEXT DAY
OR SO AND THEN ACCELERATE NORTHEASTWARD AHEAD OF A MID/UPPER-LEVEL
TROUGH. THERE REMAINS CONSIDERABLE EAST/WEST SPREAD IN THE TRACK
GUIDANCE...WITH THE GFS REMAINING WELL EAST OF THE OTHER GLOBAL
MODELS AND ITS ENSEMBLE MEAN. THE TRACK GUIDANCE HAS SHIFTED A
LITTLE TO THE WEST THIS CYCLE...AND THE NEW NHC TRACK IS CLOSE TO
THE MULTI-MODEL CONSENSUS AND ABOUT A HALF A DEGREE LEFT OF THE
PREVIOUS TRACK THROUGH 48 HOURS. NOTE THAT A STRONGER STORM WOULD
LIKELY MOVER FARTHER EAST...WHILE A WEAKER SYSTEM WOULD BE MORE
LIKELY TO TAKE A TRACK FARTHER WEST.
