 TROPICAL DEPRESSION SIXTEEN-E DISCUSSION NUMBER   6
 NWS TPC/NATIONAL HURRICANE CENTER MIAMI FL
 2 AM PDT SUN OCT 16 2005
  
 INFRARED AND MICROWAVE SATELLITE IMAGERY INDICATE TD-16E HAS BECOME
 BETTER ORGANIZED DURING THE PAST 6 HOURS. CONVECTIVE BANDING
 FEATURES HAVE IMPROVED AND DEEP CONVECTION WITH CLOUD TOPS AS COLD
 -80C HAS DEVELOPED NEAR AND TO THE EAST OF THE LOW-LEVEL CENTER.
 DVORAK SATELLITE INTENSITY ESTIMATES AR T2.0/30 KT FROM TAFB AND
 AFWA... AND 25 KT FROM SAB. AN EARLIER UW-CIMSS AMSU INTENSITY
 ESTIMATE WAS 1005 MB AND 33 KT... SO THE INITIAL INTENSITY HAS BEEN
 INCREASED TO 30 KT FOR THIS ADVISORY.
  
 INITIAL MOTION IS 270/4. A LARGE AND STRONG DEEP-LAYER LOW PRESSURE
 SYSTEM OVER SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA AND NORTHERN BAJA CALIFORNIA IS
 FORECAST BY ALL THE GLOBAL MODELS AND THE GFDL MODEL TO SLOWLY FILL
 AND LIFT OUT TO THE NORTHEAST OR EAST OVER THE NEXT 5 DAYS. THIS
 ALLOWS THE SUBTROPICAL RIDGE LOCATED OVER THE GULF OF MEXICO AND
 NORTHERN MEXICO TO SLOWLY BUILD/SHIFT TO THE WEST AND SOUTHWEST
 OVER THE EASTERN NORTH PACIFIC. THE BUILDING RIDGE TO THE NORTH OF
 TD-16E SHOULD ACT TO FORCE THE CYCLONE IN A GENERAL WEST OR
 WEST-SOUTHWESTWARD DIRECTION. THE OFFICIAL FORECAST TRACK IS
 SIMILAR TO THE PREVIOUS TRACK... EXCEPT THAT THE FORECAST TIME
 LENGTH HAS BEEN EXTENDED TO 120 HOURS NOW THAT THE SHIPS AND THE
 OTHER MODELS KEEP THE CYCLONE ALIVE FOR THE NEXT 5 DAYS.
 
 THE CYCLONE IS FORECAST TO REMAIN OVER AT LEAST 28C SSTS FOR THE
 NEXT 5 DAYS. IN FACT... THE WATER MAY BE WARMER THAN THAT BASED ON
 AN SST REPORT OF 84F/29C FROM DRIFTING BUOY 32640 LOCATED NORTH OF
 TD-16E. THE CURRENT VERTICAL SHEAR OF 21 KT IS EXPECTED TO SLOWLY
 DECREASE TO LESS THAN 15 KT AFTER 48 HOURS... SO SOME SLIGHT
 STRENGTHENING IS FORECAST. THIS IS SIMILAR TO THE SHIPS MODEL WHICH
 BRINGS THE CYCLONE UP TO 42 KT BY 96 HOURS.
