TROPICAL STORM FRANKLIN DISCUSSION NUMBER 22
NWS TPC/NATIONAL HURRICANE CENTER MIAMI FL
5 PM EDT TUE JUL 26 2005

A BAND OF DEEP CONVECTION...WITH CLOUD TOPS OF -70C TO -80-C...HAS
REDEVELOPED EAST THROUGH SOUTH OF THE STILL EXPOSED LOW-LEVEL
CENTER. GIVEN THAT THIS CYCLONE HAS HAD A RECON HISTORY OF STRONGER
THAN AVERAGE WINDS AT HIGHER LEVELS...I HAVE OPTED TO KEEP FRANKLIN
AS A 35-KT TROPICAL STORM FOR THIS ADVISORY. THIS IS SUPPORTED BY
AN 18Z REPORT OF 31 KT FROM SHIP PIBO LOCATED ABOUT 220 NMI
SOUTHEAST OF THE CENTER...OR ABOUT 70 NMI SOUTH-SOUTHEAST OF
BERMUDA...AND BY A TAFB DVORAK SATELLITE CURRENT INTENSITY ESTIMATE
OF 35 KT. OUTFLOW REMAINS RESTRICTED NORTHWEST-NORTHEAST.

THE MOTION OVER THE PAST 18 HOURS HAS BEEN A RATHER WOBBLY 020/04.
FRANKLIN IS CURRENTLY COMPLETING A 30 NMI WIDE COUNTER-CLOCKWISE
LOOP...BUT THE NET OVERALL MOTION HAS BEEN NORTHEASTWARD. FRANKLIN
MAY WOBBLE LIKE A CHILD'S TOP TO THE NORTH OR NORTH-NORTHEAST FOR
THE NEXT 24 HOURS OR SO BEFORE STEERING CURRENTS BECOME BETTER
DEFINED. A STRONG SHORTWAVE TROUGH IS FORECAST TO ERODE THE
MID-LEVEL RIDGE TO THE NORTH...WHICH HAS BEEN IMPEDING ANY
SIGNIFICANT POLEWARD MOTION...AND GRADUALLY LIFT OUT THE CYCLONE TO
THE NORTHEAST. THE OFFICIAL FORECAST TRACK IS SIMILAR TO THE
PREVIOUS ADVISORY AND IS A LITTLE EAST OF THE NHC MODEL CONSENSUS.

UNFAVORABLE UPPER-LEVEL SHEAR IS EXPECTED TO PERSIST FOR ANOTHER
18-24 HOURS...SO SOME FLUCTUATIONS IN STRENGTH ARE POSSIBLE DURING
THAT TIME. BY 30-48 HOURS...THE UPPER-LEVEL SHEAR IS FORECAST TO
WEAKEN TO LESS THAN 10 KT AND BECOME SOUTHEASTERLY...WHICH MAY
ALLOW FOR SOME MODEST INTENSIFICATION TO OCCUR BEFORE THE
UPPER-LEVEL WINDS BECOME STRONG SOUTHWESTERLY AHEAD OF AN
APPROACHING FRONTAL SYSTEM. BY 60 HOURS...FRANKLIN WILL ALSO BE
MOVING OVER SUB-24C SSTS...WHICH SHOULD BRING ABOUT RAPID WEAKENING
UNLESS THE CYCLONE GETS ABSORBED BY THE FRONTAL SYSTEM FIRST. THIS
FORECAST SCENARIO IS CONSISTENT WITH THE SHIPS INTENSITY MODEL.

THE 12 FT SEA HEIGHT RADIUS WAS INCREASED IN THE SOUTHEAST QUADRANT
BASED ON THE 19-FT SEA HEIGHT REPORT FROM SHIP PIBO.

FORECASTER STEWART

Eh, we've had plenty of storms that would never die... But THIS one has been chilling in the hospice for about a week now.

Bomb Franklin bomb baby bomb!!! Make 10 loops through out the north Atlantic. Then Franklin would be a north Atlantic whale.

FRANKLIN
MAY WOBBLE LIKE A CHILD'S TOP


Wonder if they read these boards over at the NHC sometimes.. wasn't there a mention of comparing tropics storms to a toy top within the past couple days??? OH wait that's right... that was me! LOL *winks* :lol:

Yep, it was a great observation. You need to be a regular Einstein to compare a tropical cyclone to a top. Nobody would make that connection. :P

From my gleaning of imagery, Franklin is currently in a pocket of very light shear -- which would account for the -80C tops blowing up very near the center in the first place.

Frankie is the Lisa of last year or the kyle of 2002. He will likely do the loops in he is the fighter. Don't discount a hurricane yet.

TROPICAL STORM FRANKLIN DISCUSSION NUMBER 23
NWS TPC/NATIONAL HURRICANE CENTER MIAMI FL
11 PM EDT TUE JUL 26 2005

A CONVECTIVE CLUSTER WITH TOPS OF -70C TO -75C PERSISTS NEAR AND
SOUTH OF THE LOW-LEVEL CENTER OF FRANKLIN. SHEAR ANALYSES FROM
CIMSS AT THE UNIVERSITY OF WISCONSIN INDICATE THAT THE VERTICAL
SHEAR HAS DECREASED DURING THE PAST 12 HR...AND THIS IS LIKELY
RESPONSIBLE FOR THE CONVECTIVE INCREASE. SATELLITE INTENSITY
ESTIMATES ARE 35 KT FROM TAFB AND SAB...AND 30 KT FROM AFWA...WHILE
A RECENT QUIKSCAT OVERPASS SHOWS RAIN-CONTAMINATED 40 KT VECTORS
SOUTHEAST OF THE CENTER. THE INITIAL INTENSITY REMAINS 35 KT AS A
COMPROMISE BETWEEN THE VARIOUS ESTIMATES.

CIRRUS OUTFLOW FROM THE CONVECTION HAS COVERED THE CENTER...SO THE
INITIAL MOTION IS QUITE UNCERTAIN. THE 24 HR MOTION IS 005/4.
HOWEVER...THIS PACKAGE WILL USE A 315/2 DRIFT THAT HAS OCCURRED
OVER THE PAST SEVERAL HOURS. WATER VAPOR IMAGERY SHOWS A MID/
UPPER-LEVEL RIDGE PASSING NORTH OF FRANKLIN. AS THIS FEATURE MOVES
EASTWARD...PRESSURES SHOULD RISE EAST OF BERMUDA AS THEY FALL OVER
THE EASTERN U. S. EAST OF THE NEXT TROUGH AND ASSOCIATED COLD
FRONT...CURRENTLY OVER THE NORTHERN PLAINS AND GREAT LAKES.
LARGE-SCALE MODELS AGREE THAT THESE CHANGES SHOULD COME ABOUT IN
12-24 HR...AND THAT FRANKLIN SHOULD MOVE NORTHWARD IN RESPONSE.
THE CYCLONE THEN SHOULD GRADUALLY TURN NORTHEASTWARD AFTER 24-36 HR
AND ACCELERATE INTO THE WESTERLIES THROUGH THE REST OF ITS LIFE.
THE OFFICIAL FORECAST TRACK AGREES WITH THIS SCENARIO. THE NEW
TRACK IS NEAR THE LEFT EDGE OF THE MAIN ENVELOPE OF GUDIANCE...AND
SLOWER THAN THE GUIDANCE BASED ON THE RECENT TRACK RECORD OF THE
GUIDANCE BEING TOO FAST. IT WOULD NOT BE SURPRISING TO SEE SOME
WEST OF NORTH MOTION IN THE FIRST 12 HR OF THE FORECAST PERIOD.

THE CURRENT DECREASE IN SHEAR IS OCCURRING AS AN UPPER-LEVEL
CYCLONIC SHEAR AXIS FORMS NEAR FRANKLIN...A PATTERN THAT OVERALL IS
NOT THAT FAVORABLE FOR STRENGTHENING. LARGE-SCALE MODELS FORECAST
THIS FEATURE TO WEAKEN AND MOVE SOUTH OF FRANKLIN IN ABOUT 12-24
HR... WHICH WOULD OPEN ABOUT A 24 HR WINDOW FOR THE STORM TO
STRENGTHEN BEFORE IT MOVES NORTH OF THE GULF STREAM. THE INTENSITY
FORECAST CALLS FOR MODEST STRENGTHENING TO 40 KT...WHICH IS ABOUT
THE MOST THE INTENSITY GUIDANCE IS CURRENTLY FORECASTING.
