What all here are waiting for is the discussion to see the reasoning for the upgrade so let's wait for the advisory in a few minutes.

Tropical Depression Four Discussion Number 1

Statement as of 5:00 PM EDT on August 21, 2006



the area of low pressure southeast of the Cape Verde Islands has
been maintaining enough convective banding today to warrant Dvorak
classifications of t1.5 from TAFB and SAB at 18z. Since then...a
small burst of convection has developed near the circulation
center. Given this...and the broad cyclonic envelope of the
low...advisories are initiated on Tropical Depression Four.

The initial motion is 285/10. The depression is south of the
subtropical ridge...but this ridge is forecast by global models to
slide eastward as a series of mid-latitude short waves move through
the central Atlantic and erode the ridge. This should allow the
depression to take a track between west-northwest and northwest
around the periphery of the ridge throughout much of the forecast
period. The official forecast is in good agreement with the GFS
and GFDL guidance...as well as the BAM suite of models. Neither
the UKMET nor NOGAPS hang on to the cyclone and these models take
its remnants westward.

Outer banding structures are well defined...but overall the
convective signature is still a little thin. Water temperatures
should be warm enough for the next day or so to support development
and the shear is light. During days 2 and 3 of the forecast period
the cyclone will be moving over somewhat cooler waters and the
official forecast shows only slow development after that. The
intensity forecast is close to a blend of the SHIPS and GFDL
guidance.

Portions of the Cape Verde Islands are within the forecast tropical
storm force wind swath...and the government of the Cape Verde
Islands has issued a Tropical Storm Warning.

the impact to land tomorrow may be worse than we think. Depends upon the evolution of convection in the NE quad

I don't know about anyone else, but I love a real long tracker.

Just had to say that, because last year really didn't have many..

So do I. They are always fun to predict and follow when they aren't making landfall. The last long-tracker was Irene, but that was on the edge thinking it would fizzle for a while. The last true fish-spinning monster was Karl in 2004.

I am leaning towards a path similar to 2004's Danielle, although a bit stronger (say, 115-120 mph at peak).

Are you sure about Beryl? According to the NHC deadliest storms list, Beryl killed well over 100.

Heh, I wrote that article! Back on topic, the NHC says up to 10 inches of rain is possible in localized mountainous areas, so let's hope we don't get a repeat of Beryl.

The big question is whether or not #4 can make the long trek across.. I like a lot of others here like long track storms
