 TROPICAL STORM MARTY DISCUSSION NUMBER  11
 NWS NATIONAL HURRICANE CENTER MIAMI FL       EP172015
 400 AM CDT TUE SEP 29 2015
 
 Conventional satellite imagery shows a rapid decay of the deep
 convection overnight, and that convection is now separated to the
 east of the partially exposed surface circulation center. The 20-30
 kt of westerly shear indicated on the UW-CIMSS analysis is
 drastically affecting the vertical structure of the cyclone as well,
 as seen in microwave imagery. As a result, the initial intensity is
 decreased to 55 kt based on a compromise of the subjective and
 objective satellite intensity estimates.  Strong, persistent,
 vertical shear and possibly upwelling of cooler waters should cause
 the cyclone to quickly weaken to a depression in 36 hours, and
 degenerate into a remnant low in 2 days. With the exception of the
 ECMWF and UKMET models, which show the cyclone lingering as a
 remnant low beyond day 4, all of the other large- scale models, and
 the statistical-dynamical guidance, show dissipation in 4 days or
 less. The NHC forecast follows the latter scenario, and also shows
 the cyclone weakening to a remnant low by 48 hours.
 
 Marty has been moving a bit erratically during the past 6 hours, and
 the best motion estimate is a temporary drift toward the east.
 Deterministic and ensemble guidance indicate that this motion,
 within the weak steering flow produced by a mid-level trough to the
 northwest of the cyclone, should continue through today.  Afterward,
 Marty is expected to turn back toward the northwest and west-
 northwest as a shallow, weaker cyclone, during the next 36 hours as
 a low to mid-level high pressure ridge builds over southern Mexico.
 The official forecast is weighted heavily on the TVCX multi-model
 consensus and is a little bit faster and to the south of the
 previous advisory.
