 TROPICAL STORM JULIA DISCUSSION NUMBER  24
 NWS TPC/NATIONAL HURRICANE CENTER MIAMI FL   AL122010
 1100 PM AST FRI SEP 17 2010
  
 THE SATELLITE PRESENTATION SHOWS THE CIRCULATION CENTER OF JULIA
 JUST BENEATH THE NORTHERN EDGE OF THE CLOUD CANOPY. THE SHEARED
 CLOUD PATTERN IS DUE TO 20-30 KT OF NORTHERLY SHEAR PRODUCED BY A
 STRONG OUTFLOW CHANNEL ASSOCIATED WITH HURRICANE EARL.  SUBSEQUENT
 BANDING CLOUD TOPS HAVE WARMED CONSIDERABLY THIS EVENING...AND THE
 SATELLITE INTENSITY ESTIMATES FROM TAFB AND SAB HAVE DECREASED TO
 65 AND 60 KT RESPECTIVELY.  BASED ON THESE DATA...THE INITIAL
 INTENSITY IS LOWERED TO 60 KT.  THE GLOBAL AND THE SHIPS MODELS ALL
 SUGGEST THAT THE SHEAR WILL PERSIST AND STRENGTHEN BY THE 48 HOUR
 PERIOD AS THE SHEAR VECTOR BECOMES MORE WESTERLY. THE NHC INTENSITY
 FORECAST INDICATES A GRADUAL WEAKENING TREND BASED ON THE
 AFOREMENTIONED GUIDANCE...WITH THE CYCLONE ULTIMATELY BECOMING
 ABSORBED IN 96 HOURS BY THE MUCH LARGER EXTRATROPICAL IGOR.
  
 THE INITIAL MOTION IS A LITTLE TO THE RIGHT OF THE PREVIOUS
 ADVISORY...AND IS ESTIMATED TO BE NORTHWESTWARD OR 310/14.  THE
 DYNAMICAL MODELS SHOW THE CYCLONE MOVING NORTHWESTWARD DURING THE
 NEXT 36 HOURS WITHIN THE SOUTHWESTERN PERIPHERY OF A MID-LEVEL HIGH
 TO THE NORTHEAST OF JULIA.  THROUGH DAY 3...THE MODELS INDICATE
 THAT THE SYSTEM WILL TURN NORTH-NORTHEASTWARD...AND NORTHEASTWARD
 AS THE MID-LEVEL HIGH BEGINS TO DRIFT SOUTHWESTWARD OVER THE
 CENTRAL ATLANTIC.  AFTERWARD...THE MODELS ARE IN GOOD AGREEMENT
 WITH JULIA BECOMING ABSORBED BY IGOR...GENERALLY IN 96 HOURS...OR
 EARLIER...AS SUGGESTED BY THE SHIPS AND BOTH THE ECMWF AND GFS
 ENSEMBLE MEANS.  THE OFFICIAL FORECAST IS CLOSE TO THE PREVIOUS
 ADVISORY AND IS BASED ON A BLEND OF THE GLOBAL AND REGIONAL MODELS.
