 TROPICAL STORM JULIA DISCUSSION NUMBER  29
 NWS TPC/NATIONAL HURRICANE CENTER MIAMI FL   AL122010
 500 AM AST SUN SEP 19 2010
  
 SOMEWHAT UNEXPECTEDLY...THE ASCAT PASS AT 0106Z OVER JULIA SHOWED 50
 TO 55 KT WINDS AT THE SURFACE...WHICH SUGGESTS THAT THE CYCLONE WAS
 AT LEAST 55 KT AROUND 0000Z GIVEN THE LOW BIAS OF THAT INSTRUMENT.
 SINCE THEN...THE CONVECTION HAS WEAKENED AND THE CDO HAS BECOME
 FRAGMENTED.  DVORAK INTENSITY ESTIMATES WERE 3.0...OR 45 KT...FROM
 TAFB AND 2.5...OR 35 KT...FROM SAB.  THE INTENSITY WAS SET AT
 50 KT AT THE SYNOPTIC TIME AND IS 45 KT FOR THIS ADVISORY.
  
 THE MOTION OF JULIA IS 355 DEGREES AT 14 KT...WHICH IS FAIRLY WELL
 KNOWN DUE TO AN 0506Z AQUA PASS THAT WAS JUST RECEIVED. THE CYCLONE
 IS IN THE PROCESS OF RECURVING AROUND THE DEEP LAYER SUBTROPICAL
 RIDGE TO ITS SOUTHEAST. A MODEST DECELERATION IS EXPECTED OVER THE
 NEXT 36 HOURS AS JULIA TURNS TOWARD THE NORTHEAST. THE MODEL
 GUIDANCE HAS SHIFTED SIGNIFICANTLY SOUTHEASTWARD AND THE TRACK
 FORECAST IS A BLEND OF THE PREVIOUS ADVISORY AND THE FAIRLY
 CLUSTERED MODEL CONSENSUS.
  
 THE MODEST REINTENSIFICATION OF JULIA IS NOT LIKELY TO BE REPEATED. 
 THE CYCLONE WILL BE MOVING OVER SUB-26C SSTS IN ABOUT A DAY WHILE
 BEING BLUDGEONED BY ABOUT 50 KT UPPER TROPOSPHERIC NORTHWESTERLIES. 
 GRADUAL DECAY IS EXPECTED OVER THE NEXT TWO DAYS...AFTER WHICH
 JULIA SHOULD BE ABSORBED INTO THE VERY LARGE CIRCULATION OF IGOR. 
 THE INTENSITY FORECAST IS NEARLY IDENTICAL TO THE PREVIOUS
 ADVISORY...BUT BELOW THE INTENSITY MODEL CONSENSUS WHICH APPEARS TO
 HOLD ON TO A ROBUST CYCLONE FOR TOO LONG.
  
 THE AFOREMENTIONED ASCAT PASS ALLOWED FOR AN ADJUSTMENT TO THE WIND
 RADII UTILIZED IN THIS ADVISORY.
