HURRICANE TOMAS DISCUSSION NUMBER 10
NWS TPC/NATIONAL HURRICANE CENTER MIAMI FL AL212010
1100 AM AST SUN OCT 31 2010

DEEP CONVECTION ASSOCIATED WITH TOMAS HAS GENERALLY DECREASED DURING
THE LAST FEW HOURS AND BANDING FEATURES HAVE BECOME A LITTLE LESS
ORGANIZED. IN ADDITION...RECENT MICROWAVE IMAGES NO LONGER SHOW AN
EYE. BASED ON THIS...THE INITIAL WIND SPEED IS LOWERED TO 80
KT...WHICH IS A BLEND OF THE LATEST SUBJECTIVE AND OBJECTIVE
SATELLITE INTENSITY ESTIMATES. THE NEXT AIR FORCE RESERVE
RECONNAISSANCE AIRCRAFT SHOULD PROVIDE A BETTER ASSESSMENT OF THE
INTENSITY EARLY THIS AFTERNOON.

THE INITIAL MOTION ESTIMATE IS 285/8. A GENERAL WESTWARD TO
WEST-NORTHWESTWARD MOTION AT ABOUT THE SAME SPEED IS EXPECTED
DURING THE NEXT COUPLE OF DAYS AS MID-LEVEL RIDGING REMAINS IN
PLACE TO THE NORTH OF TOMAS. SOME OF THE MODELS EVEN SHOW A SOUTH
OF WEST MOTION DURING THAT TIME. IN ABOUT 3 DAYS...THE CYCLONE IS
EXPECTED TO SLOW DOWN AS A LARGE MID- TO UPPER-LEVEL LOW MOVES OVER
THE GULF OF MEXICO...CAUSING THE RIDGE TO ERODE. TOMAS IS FORECAST
TO GRADUALLY TURN TOWARD THE NORTH IN 4 TO 5 DAYS AS IT FEELS THE
INFLUENCE OF SOUTHERLY FLOW TO THE EAST OF THE TROUGH. THE LATEST
MODEL GUIDANCE HAS CHANGED LITTLE FROM THE LAST CYCLE...AND THE
OFFICIAL FORECAST IS ESSENTIALLY AN UPDATE OF THE PREVIOUS TRACK.

ALTHOUGH TOMAS LIES OVER AN AREA OF HIGH OCEANIC HEAT CONTENT...
MODERATE SOUTHWESTERLY SHEAR AND SOME MID-LEVEL DRY AIR AS SHOWN BY
MODEL CROSS SECTIONS COULD BE A LIMITING FACTOR FOR INTENSIFICATION
DURING THE NEXT COUPLE OF DAYS. IN FACT...SEVERAL OF THE RELIABLE
MODELS...INCLUDING THE GFS...ECMWF...AND GFDL...SHOW THE VORTEX
TILTING TO THE NORTHEAST WITH HEIGHT. THIS RESULTS IN THE
WEAKENING OF THE HURRICANE IN THOSE MODELS DURING THE NEXT COUPLE
OF DAYS. THE OFFICIAL FORECAST HAS BEEN NUDGED DOWNWARD THROUGH 48
HOURS BUT REMAINS HIGHER THAN ALL OF THE INTENSITY GUIDANCE DURING
THAT TIME. A MORE FAVORABLE UPPER-LEVEL WIND PATTERN IS EXPECTED
DURING THE 3 TO 5 DAY TIME FRAME...AND THAT SHOULD ALLOW FOR STEADY
STRENGTHENING.

ALTHOUGH TROPICAL STORM WARNINGS FOR THE WINDWARD ISLANDS HAVE BEEN
DISCONTINUED...THE THREAT OF HEAVY RAINFALL IS EXPECTED TO CONTINUE
OVER MUCH OF THE LESSER ANTILLES THROUGH TONIGHT.

HURRICANE TOMAS DISCUSSION NUMBER 11
NWS TPC/NATIONAL HURRICANE CENTER MIAMI FL AL212010
500 PM AST SUN OCT 31 2010

DATA FROM AN AIR FORCE RESERVE RECONNAISSANCE AIRCRAFT INDICATE THAT
TOMAS HAS WEAKENED A LITTLE MORE. THE AIRCRAFT REPORTED A MAXIMUM
850 MB FLIGHT-LEVEL WIND OF 74 KT...AN SFMR SURFACE WIND OF 64
KT...AND A MINIMUM PRESSURE OF 994 MB. THESE DATA SUPPORT
MAINTAINING TOMAS AS A HURRICANE WITH AN INITIAL WIND SPEED OF 65
KT.

THE INITIAL MOTION IS SLIGHTLY TO THE LEFT AND A LITTLE FASTER THAN
BEFORE...280/10. TOMAS IS FORECAST TO CONTINUE MOVING WESTWARD FOR
THE NEXT COUPLE OF DAYS AS IT REMAINS SOUTH OF A MID-LEVEL RIDGE.
BEYOND THAT TIME...THE CYCLONE IS EXPECTED TO SLOW DOWN AND
GRADUALLY TURN TOWARD THE NORTH AS THE STEERING CURRENTS WEAKEN DUE
TO A LARGE MID- TO UPPER-LEVEL TROUGH MOVING ACROSS THE GULF OF
MEXICO. ALTHOUGH THE TRACK MODEL GUIDANCE IS IN FAIR AGREEMENT IN
THE EVOLUTION OF THE LARGE-SCALE PATTERN...THERE ARE CONSIDERABLE
DIFFERENCES AS TO WHERE AND WHEN THE NORTHWARD TURN OCCURS. THE
OFFICIAL FORECAST IS SIMILAR TO THE PREVIOUS ONE FOR THE NEXT 3 TO
4 DAYS...AND THEN LIES A LITTLE TO THE RIGHT OF THE LAST TRACK TO
COME INTO BETTER AGREEMENT WITH THE LATEST GUIDANCE. THIS TRACK
FORECAST IS CLOSE TO A CONSENSUS OF THE GFS...GFDL...ECMWF...AND
UKMET MODELS. IT SHOULD BE NOTED THAT CONFIDENCE IN THE LONG-TERM
FORECAST POINTS ARE OF LOWER CONFIDENCE THAN NORMAL.

SOME ADDITIONAL WEAKENING SEEMS LIKELY DURING THE NEXT DAY OR TWO AS
SOUTHWESTERLY SHEAR OF 20-25 KT AND SOME MID-LEVEL DRY AIR CONTINUE
TO IMPACT THE CYCLONE. THE OFFICIAL FORECAST FOLLOWS THE TREND IN
THE GUIDANCE AND IS ONCE AGAIN ADJUSTED DOWNWARD...BRINGING TOMAS
BELOW HURRICANE STRENGTH WITHIN THE NEXT 12 HOURS. BEYOND A COUPLE
OF DAYS...THE SHEAR IS EXPECTED TO LESSEN WHILE TOMAS REMAINS OVER
FAVORABLE OCEANIC CONDITIONS. ALL OF THE INTENSITY MODELS RESPOND
AND SHOW THE SYSTEM INTENSIFYING IN THE 3 TO 5 DAY RANGE...AND THE
OFFICIAL FORECAST FOLLOWS SUIT AND IS AT THE HIGH END OF THE
GUIDANCE THROUGHOUT THE FORECAST PERIOD.

1100 PM AST SUN OCT 31 2010

RECENT MICROWAVE DATA...PARTICULARLY A 0045 UTC SSMIS PASS...
INDICATE THAT THE LOW-LEVEL CENTER OF TOMAS IS NOW LOCATED ABOUT
140 N MI TO THE WEST OF THE DEEP CONVECTION AND HAS BEEN MOVING A
LITTLE SOUTH OF DUE WEST. DVORAK ESTIMATES HAVE DECREASED TO
T3.0/4.0 FROM TAFB...T2.5/3.5 FROM SAB...AND T3.4/4.3 FROM THE
ADT...AND THE INITIAL INTENSITY IS THEREFORE LOWERED TO 55 KT FOR
THIS ADVISORY. THIS INTENSITY COULD BE A LITTLE GENEROUS...BUT
ADDITIONAL ADJUSTMENTS CAN BE MADE WHEN THE AIR FORCE HURRICANE
HUNTER AIRCRAFT INVESTIGATES THE CYCLONE LATER TONIGHT.

SIGNIFICANT MODIFICATIONS HAVE BEEN REQUIRED TO THE INTENSITY
FORECAST ON THIS ADVISORY. STRONG SOUTHWESTERLY SHEAR BELOW THE
OUTFLOW LAYER IS EXPECTED TO CONTINUE TO AFFECT TOMAS FOR THE NEXT
48 HOURS...AS SHOWN BY THE SHIPS GUIDANCE...AND ALL THE INTENSITY
MODELS ARE SHOWING CONTINUED WEAKENING DURING THAT TIME. THE
OFFICIAL FORECAST HAS BEEN ADJUSTED DOWNWARD...LEVELING THE
INTENSITY AT 40 KT BETWEEN 24 AND 48 HOURS. THIS IS STILL ABOVE
MOST OF THE INTENSITY GUIDANCE...AND IT IS NOT OUT OF THE QUESTION
THAT TOMAS COULD WEAKEN MORE THAN INDICATED IN THE OFFICIAL
FORECAST. THE SHEAR IS EXPECTED TO RELAX AFTER 72 HOURS...AND
THERE WILL BE AN OPPORTUNITY FOR TOMAS TO RESTRENGTHEN...POSSIBLY
BACK TO HURRICANE INTENSITY...OVER THE CENTRAL CARIBBEAN SEA.

NOW THAT THE LOW- AND MID-LEVEL CIRCULATIONS OF TOMAS HAVE BECOME
INCREASINGLY DECOUPLED...THE LOW-LEVEL CENTER HAS ACCELERATED OVER
THE PAST FEW HOURS WITH AN INITIAL MOTION ESTIMATED TO BE 270/13.
THE SOUTHWESTWARD ADJUSTMENT OF THE INITIAL POSITION HAS CAUSED THE
NEW FORECAST TRACK TO BE A LITTLE SOUTH AND FASTER THAN THE
PREVIOUS FORECAST. THE TRACK GUIDANCE IS IN RELATIVELY GOOD
AGREEMENT ON THE FUTURE TRACK OF TOMAS...BUT THERE CONTINUES TO BE
SPEED DIFFERENCES MAINLY ON DAYS 4 AND 5 WHEN A DEEP MID-LATITUDE
TROUGH SWEEPS ACROSS THE GULF OF MEXICO AND NORTHWESTERN CARIBBEAN.
THE GFDN AND HWRF ARE STILL THE FASTEST MODELS...BUT THEY HAVE BEEN
JOINED BY THE ECMWF...MAKING A FASTER SCENARIO A LITTLE MORE
CREDIBLE BY DAY 5.

TOMAS IS A HIGHLY SHEARED TROPICAL CYCLONE. THE LOW-LEVEL CENTER IS
DISPLACED MORE THAN 100 MILES TO THE WEST OF THE MAIN AREA OF DEEP
CONVECTION. HOWEVER...A SMALL AREA OF THUNDERSTORMS HAS RECENTLY
FORMED JUST TO THE NORTHEAST OF THE CENTER. SATELLITE INTENSITY
ESTIMATES CONTINUE TO FALL...AND THE INITIAL INTENSITY IS LOWERED
TO 40 KT FOR THIS ADVISORY.

THE STORM CONTINUES TO MOVE SOUTH OF DUE WEST...AND THE LATEST
12-HOUR INITIAL MOTION ESTIMATE IS 255/12. A GENERAL WESTWARD
HEADING WITH A DECREASE IN FORWARD SPEED IS EXPECTED OVER THE NEXT
24 TO 36 HOURS AS THE CYCLONE IS STEERED BY LOW- TO MID-LEVEL
EASTERLY FLOW. BY WEDNESDAY...A LARGE MID- TO UPPER-LEVEL LOW IS
EXPECTED TO MOVE EASTWARD INTO THE GULF OF MEXICO. GLOBAL MODELS
ARE IN AGREEMENT IN SHOWING THIS LOW OR TROUGH SWINGING ACROSS THE
GULF OF MEXICO AND INTO THE NORTHWESTERN CARIBBEAN. AS THIS
OCCURS...SOUTHWESTERLY FLOW ON THE EAST SIDE OF THE TROUGH WILL
WEAKEN THE STEERING CURRENTS AND THEN CAUSE TOMAS TO TURN TOWARD
THE NORTH AND NORTHEAST IN 4 TO 5 DAYS. THE LATEST TRACK MODEL
GUIDANCE HAS SHIFTED A LITTLE TO THE LEFT...MAINLY DUE TO THE
RECENT SOUTHWESTWARD MOTION. ALTHOUGH THE NEW OFFICIAL FORECAST IS
SOUTH OF THE PREVIOUS ONE FOR THE NEXT 3 DAYS...IT ENDS UP ON THE
PREVIOUS TRACK BY DAYS 4 AND 5.

SOUTHWESTERLY SHEAR OF ABOUT 20 KT AND DRY MID-LEVEL AIR COULD CAUSE
A LITTLE MORE WEAKENING DURING THE NEXT 24 HOURS. AFTER THAT
TIME...THE SHEAR IS EXPECTED TO DECREASE AND THE OTHER ATMOSPHERIC
AND OCEANIC PARAMETERS SHOULD SUPPORT STRENGTHENING. ALL OF
THE GUIDANCE SHOWS TOMAS RE-INTENSIFYING...ESPECIALLY BEYOND 48
HOURS...AND THE OFFICIAL FORECAST FOLLOWS THAT THEME. THE NEW WIND
SPEED FORECAST IS SIMILAR TO THE PREVIOUS ONE AND CLOSE TO THE
INTENSITY MODEL CONSENSUS.

500 PM AST MON NOV 01 2010

ALTHOUGH DEEP CONVECTION HAS INCREASED NEAR THE CENTER OF TOMAS
TODAY...IT IS POORLY ORGANIZED AND LACKS BANDING. VISIBLE SATELLITE
IMAGES SHOW A SERIES OF ARC CLOUDS PROPAGATING AWAY FROM THE
CONVECTIVE MASS...INDICATIVE OF DRY AIR NEAR THE CORE. AN ASCAT
PASS AROUND 1400 UTC SHOWED MAXIMUM WINDS IN THE 30-35 KT RANGE.
SINCE CONVECTION HAS INCREASED SINCE THAT TIME...THE INITIAL
INTENSITY IS HELD AT 40 KT...IN AGREEMENT WITH SATELLITE INTENSITY
ESTIMATES.

TOMAS IS STILL MOVING A LITTLE SOUTH OF DUE WEST...AND THE INITIAL
MOTION ESTIMATE IS 260/10. THE STORM IS EXPECTED TO MOVE GENERALLY
WESTWARD FOR THE NEXT DAY OR SO WITHIN EASTERLY FLOW TO THE SOUTH
OF A LOW- TO MID-LEVEL RIDGE. GLOBAL MODELS REMAIN IN GOOD
AGREEMENT IN SHOWING A STRONG DEEP-LAYER TROUGH MOVING ACROSS THE
GULF OF MEXICO AND INTO THE NORTHWESTERN CARIBBEAN BY MID TO LATE
WEEK. THIS SYNOPTIC PATTERN SHOULD CAUSE THE CYCLONE TO SLOW DOWN
AND THEN MAKE A TURN TOWARD THE NORTH IN ABOUT 3 DAYS.
THEREAFTER... A NORTHEASTWARD MOTION WITH AN INCREASE IN FORWARD
SPEED IS FORECAST AS TOMAS BECOMES EMBEDDED IN SOUTHWESTERLY FLOW
TO THE EAST OF THE TROUGH. THE LATEST GUIDANCE HAS SHIFTED TO THE
LEFT ONCE AGAIN THROUGH 72 HOURS....AND THE OFFICIAL FORECAST IS
ADJUSTED IN THAT DIRECTION. THE NEW TRACK FORECAST IS NEAR A BLEND
OF THE GFS AND ECMWF MODELS.

DRY MID-LEVEL AIR AND SOUTHWESTERLY SHEAR CONTINUE TO IMPACT THE
CYCLONE. THE STORM IS EXPECTED TO REMAIN IN THIS UNFAVORABLE
ENVIRONMENT FOR ANOTHER 12-24 HOURS...WHICH SHOULD PREVENT MUCH
STRENGTHENING. AFTER THAT TIME...ENVIRONMENTAL WINDS ARE
ANTICIPATED TO BECOME MORE CONDUCIVE AND MODEL CROSS SECTIONS
SUGGEST THAT THE ATMOSPHERE WILL MOISTEN. THIS ENVIRONMENT SHOULD
ALLOW THE STORM TO GAIN STRENGTH...AND THE OFFICIAL FORECAST HAS
BEEN ADJUSTED UPWARD TO BE IN AGREEMENT WITH THE SHIPS MODEL.

TROPICAL STORM TOMAS DISCUSSION NUMBER 16
NWS TPC/NATIONAL HURRICANE CENTER MIAMI FL AL212010
1100 PM EDT MON NOV 01 2010

THERE HAS BEEN NO APPRECIABLE CHANGE TO THE STRUCTURE OF TOMAS OVER
THE PAST SEVERAL HOURS. DEEP CONVECTION HAD DIMINISHED AT ONE
POINT THIS EVENING...BUT A LINEAR BAND HAS RECENTLY RE-DEVELOPED
ABOUT 60-90 N MI EAST OF THE LOW-LEVEL CENTER. THE INITIAL
INTENSITY IS HELD AT 40 KT...WHICH IS CONSISTENT WITH SATELLITE
ESTIMATES OF T2.5/3.0 FROM TAFB AND T2.6/2.7 FROM THE OBJECTIVE
ADT. ALTHOUGH WEST-SOUTHWESTERLY SHEAR CONTINUES TO IMPACT THE
CYCLONE...IT IS EXPECTED TO DECREASE IN 24-36 HOURS. IN
ADDITION...THE MID-LEVEL RELATIVE HUMIDITY IS EXPECTED TO
INCREASE...AND TOMAS WILL BE MOVING OVER A REGION OF INCREASED
OCEAN HEAT CONTENT. ALL THESE FACTORS SUGGEST THAT TOMAS SHOULD
RE-STRENGTHEN...AND THE INTENSITY MODELS ARE IN GENERALLY GOOD
AGREEMENT THAT IT COULD BECOME A HURRICANE AGAIN BY DAY 3. THE
PREVIOUS FORECAST IS IN LINE WITH THE NEW INTENSITY GUIDANCE...AND
NO CHANGES WERE REQUIRED ON THIS ADVISORY.

RECENT MICROWAVE IMAGERY SUGGESTS THAT TOMAS HAS CEASED MOVING
SOUTH OF DUE WEST AND NOW HAS AN INITIAL MOTION OF 270/10. TRACK
GUIDANCE INDICATES THAT TOMAS...IN ITS WEAKENED STATE...SHOULD
CONTINUE TO MOVE WESTWARD IN THE LOW-LEVEL FLOW FOR THE NEXT 36
HOURS OR SO. ONCE THE CYCLONE BEGINS TO STRENGTHEN...THE DEEPER
VORTEX SHOULD BE STEERED NORTHWARD AND THEN NORTHEASTWARD IN THE
SOUTHWESTERLY FLOW AHEAD OF AN APPROACHING MID- TO UPPER-LEVEL
TROUGH. SINCE THE HWRF AND GFDN APPEAR TO BE NORTHERN OUTLIERS AND
THE NOGAPS DOES NOT EVEN PULL TOMAS OUT OF THE CARIBBEAN...THE
OFFICIAL FORECAST IS BASED ON A CONSENSUS OF THE GFS...ECMWF...
GFDL...AND UKMET. THE GUIDANCE ENVELOPE HAS SHIFTED A BIT TO THE
WEST ON THIS CYCLE...MAINLY IN THE DAY 2 AND 3 TIME FRAME...AND THE
NEW OFFICIAL FORECAST FOLLOWS THAT TREND.

TROPICAL STORM TOMAS DISCUSSION NUMBER 17
NWS TPC/NATIONAL HURRICANE CENTER MIAMI FL AL212010
500 AM EDT TUE NOV 02 2010

TOMAS HAS THE APPEARANCE OF A GRADUALLY STRENGTHENING TROPICAL
STORM. OVERNIGHT...THERE HAS BEEN A SUBSTANTIAL INCREASE IN THE
ASSOCIATED DEEP CONVECTION. ALTHOUGH MOST OF THE THUNDERSTORM
ACTIVITY IS OCCURRING OVER THE EASTERN AND NORTHEASTERN PORTIONS OF
THE CIRCULATION...DEEP CONVECTION HAS RECENTLY BEEN INCREASING NEAR
THE CENTER. ENHANCED IR IMAGERY ALSO SUGGESTS SOME BANDING
FEATURES DEVELOPING OVER THE NORTHEAST QUADRANT. ON THE FINAL PASS
OF AN AIR FORCE HURRICANE HUNTER PLANE OUTBOUND FROM THE CENTER
OVER THE NORTHEAST QUADRANT...THE MAXIMUM UNFLAGGED SFMR-MEASURED
SURFACE WIND SPEED WAS 44 KT. THE INTENSITY IS ADJUSTED SLIGHTLY
UPWARD...TO 45 KT...ON THIS ADVISORY. TOMAS IS FORECAST TO MOVE
OVER WATERS OF INCREASINGLY HIGH OCEANIC HEAT CONTENT AND ALTHOUGH
SOME SOUTHWESTERLY SHEAR WILL PROBABLY IMPACT THE SYSTEM...THE
SHEAR IS NOT LIKELY TO BECOME VERY STRONG FOR THE NEXT FEW DAYS.
THE OFFICIAL INTENSITY FORECAST IS SIMILAR TO THE PREVIOUS ONE AND
BRINGS TOMAS TO HURRICANE INTENSITY IN A COUPLE OF DAYS. THIS IS
SIMILAR TO THE RELIABLE LGEM GUIDANCE BUT BELOW THE GFDL FORECAST
INTENSITY PREDICTION.

BASED ON THE HURRICANE HUNTER FIXES...THE STORM CONTINUES MOVING
WESTWARD...OR ABOUT 270/10. THE TRACK FORECAST REASONING FOR THE
NEXT 3 TO 4 DAYS REMAINS THE SAME AS BEFORE. TOMAS SHOULD BE
STEERED ALONG THE SOUTHERN AND SOUTHWESTERN PERIPHERY OF A LOW- TO
MID-LEVEL RIDGE FOR THE NEXT COUPLE OF DAYS. BY 72-96 HOURS...THE
FLOW AHEAD OF A LARGE MID-TROPOSPHERIC TROUGH SHOULD TURN THE
DEEPENING CYCLONE SHARPLY NORTHWARD AND NORTH-NORTHEASTWARD. BY
THE END OF THE FORECAST PERIOD...THE GLOBAL MODELS SUGGEST THAT THE
TROUGH COULD SWING NORTHEASTWARD AND NOT COMPLETELY PICK UP TOMAS.
THEREFORE THERE IS A POSSIBILITY THAT THE TROPICAL CYCLONE COULD
LINGER NEAR NORTHERN HISPANIOLA FOR A DAY OR TWO...BEFORE THE
WESTERLIES EVENTUALLY CARRY IT FARTHER OUT INTO THE ATLANTIC. THAT
POSSIBILITY...HOWEVER...IS NOT EXPLICITLY SHOWN IN THE OFFICIAL
TRACK FORECAST AT THIS TIME.

1100 AM EDT TUE NOV 02 2010

TOMAS HAS CERTAINLY BECOME BETTER ORGANIZED SINCE YESTERDAY...WITH A
LARGE AREA OF DEEP CONVECTION AND INCREASED BANDING SEEN IN
CONVENTIONAL SATELLITE AND MICROWAVE DATA. HOWEVER...THE STORM HAS
CHANGED LITTLE IN ORGANIZATION SINCE THE RECONNAISSANCE AIRCRAFT
REPORTED SFMR SURFACE WINDS OF 45 KT AROUND 0800 UTC. THEREFORE...
THE INITIAL INTENSITY IS HELD AT THAT VALUE...WHICH IS IN LINE WITH
THE LATEST DVORAK T-NUMBERS OF 2.5 AND 3.5 FROM SAB AND TAFB...
RESPECTIVELY. THE NEXT AIR FORCE HURRICANE HUNTER AIRCRAFT IS
SCHEDULED TO INVESTIGATE TOMAS THIS AFTERNOON.

WESTERLY SHEAR CONTINUES TO RELAX AND THE MID-LEVEL ENVIRONMENT
APPEARS TO BE MOISTENING. THESE ATMOSPHERIC CONDITIONS...COMBINED
WITH HIGH OCEANIC HEAT CONTENT...FAVOR INTENSIFICATION DURING THE
NEXT FEW DAYS...WHICH IS SHOWN BY MOST OF THE GUIDANCE. IN
FACT...THE SHIPS RAPID INTENSIFICATION INDEX GIVES A 48 PERCENT
CHANCE OF A 30-KT INCREASE IN WIND SPEED DURING THE NEXT 24 HOURS.
THE OFFICIAL FORECAST HAS BEEN ADJUSTED UPWARD FROM THE PREVIOUS
ADVISORY AND IS NOW AT OR JUST ABOVE THE HIGH END OF THE INTENSITY
GUIDANCE. AFTER A FEW DAYS...LAND INTERACTION...DRIER AIR...AND
SOME INCREASE IN SOUTHERLY SHEAR IS LIKELY TO CAUSE WEAKENING.

THE INITIAL MOTION ESTIMATE IS A LITTLE SLOWER THAN BEFORE...270/9.
A TURN TO THE WEST-NORTHWEST AND NORTHWEST WITH A DECREASE IN
FORWARD SPEED IS FORECAST DURING THE NEXT 24-48 HOURS AS A STRONG
TROUGH MOVES EASTWARD ACROSS THE GULF OF MEXICO. AS A RESULT...
TOMAS IS EXPECTED TO TURN NORTHWARD AND NORTHEASTWARD BEYOND 48
HOURS IN DEEP-LAYER SOUTHWESTERLY FLOW ON THE EAST SIDE OF THE
TROUGH. SEVERAL OF THE GLOBAL MODELS SUGGEST THAT THE TROUGH WILL
NOT COMPLETELY CAPTURE TOMAS AND THERE REMAINS A LARGE DISAGREEMENT
IN THE FUTURE POSITION OF THE CYCLONE AT DAYS 4 AND 5. THE OFFICIAL
FORECAST IS OF LOW CONFIDENCE DURING THAT TIME PERIOD AND IS NEAR A
CONSENSUS OF THE GFS...GFDL... UKMET...NOGAPS...AND ECMWF MODELS.

REGARDLESS OF THE EXACT TRACK AND INTENSITY OF TOMAS...IT APPEARS
THAT THE TROPICAL CYCLONE WILL POSE A SIGNIFICANT THREAT OF HEAVY
RAINFALL OVER HAITI AND THE DOMINICAN REPUBLIC LATER IN THE WEEK.

TROPICAL STORM TOMAS DISCUSSION NUMBER 19
NWS TPC/NATIONAL HURRICANE CENTER MIAMI FL AL212010
500 PM EDT TUE NOV 02 2010

AN AIR FORCE HURRICANE HUNTER AIRCRAFT INVESTIGATING TOMAS FOUND THE
STORM WEAKER THAN IT WAS EARLY THIS MORNING...WITH A SOMEWHAT
ELONGATED CIRCULATION. MAXIMUM FLIGHT-LEVEL AND SFMR SURFACE WINDS
SUPPORT LOWERING THE INITIAL INTENSITY TO 35 KT. THE CONVECTIVE
STRUCTURE OF TOMAS HAS ALSO BECOME LESS ORGANIZED.

THE CONTINUED WEAKENING...OR AT LEAST LACK OF STRENGTHENING...OF
TOMAS IS LIKELY DUE TO MID-LEVEL DRY AIR...SOME WESTERLY
SHEAR...AND PERHAPS THE PROXIMITY TO SOUTH AMERICA.
HOWEVER...INTENSIFICATION STILL SEEMS LIKELY GIVEN THE EXPECTED
FAVORABLE ATMOSPHERIC ENVIRONMENT DURING THE NEXT FEW DAYS. THE
OFFICIAL FORECAST HAS BEEN ADJUSTED DOWNWARD FROM THE PREVIOUS ONE
FOR THE FIRST COUPLE OF DAYS...DUE TO THE LOWER INITIAL
INTENSITY...BUT IS OTHERWISE SIMILAR TO THE PREVIOUS ADVISORY.

AIRCRAFT AND SATELLITE FIXES INDICATE THAT TOMAS CONTINUES WESTWARD
AT AROUND 12 KT. THE TRACK FORECAST REASONING IS UNCHANGED FROM
EARLIER. A STRONG MID- TO UPPER-LEVEL TROUGH CURRENTLY MOVING INTO
THE WESTERN GULF OF MEXICO IS EXPECTED TO SWING EASTWARD INTO THE
NORTHWESTERN CARIBBEAN SEA. THIS PATTERN WILL CAUSE THE SYSTEM TO
SLOW DOWN AND TURN TOWARD THE NORTH IN THE NEXT 24 TO 48 HOURS.
TOMAS IS THEN FORECAST TO TRACK NORTHEASTWARD WITH SOME INCREASE IN
FORWARD SPEED IN THE 2 TO 4 DAY PERIOD. BY DAY 5...MOST OF THE
GLOBAL MODELS SHOW THE TROUGH FLATTENING AND LEAVING TOMAS BEHIND.
THE LATEST TRACK GUIDANCE HAS SHIFTED TO THE LEFT...AND THE
OFFICIAL FORECAST IS ADJUSTED IN THAT DIRECTION.

REGARDLESS OF THE EXACT TRACK AND INTENSITY OF TOMAS...IT APPEARS
THAT THE TROPICAL CYCLONE WILL POSE A SIGNIFICANT THREAT OF HEAVY
RAINFALL OVER HAITI AND THE DOMINICAN REPUBLIC LATER IN THE WEEK.

FORECAST POSITIONS AND MAX WINDS

INITIAL 02/2100Z 13.5N 74.6W 35 KT

TROPICAL STORM TOMAS DISCUSSION NUMBER 20
NWS TPC/NATIONAL HURRICANE CENTER MIAMI FL AL212010
1100 PM EDT TUE NOV 02 2010

SATELLITE IMAGES INDICATE THAT OVERALL CONVECTION HAS DECREASED
DURING THE PAST SEVERAL HOURS...THOUGH A CURVED BAND HAS BECOME A
LITTLE BETTER-DEFINED RECENTLY. MICROWAVE DATA SUGGEST THE CENTER
IS ON THE SOUTHEASTERN SIDE OF THAT BAND...AND REMNANTS OF THE OLD
MID-LEVEL CIRCULATION CAN BE SEEN NORTHWEST OF ARUBA. SATELLITE
INTENSITY ESTIMATES VARY FROM 35-55 KT...AND NO CHANGE WILL BE MADE
TO THE INITIAL WIND SPEED OF 35 KT. AN AIR FORCE HURRICANE HUNTER
WILL BE IN THE AREA IN A FEW HOURS TO CHECK ON THE STATUS OF TOMAS.

LARGE-SCALE ENVIRONMENTAL PARAMETERS APPEAR TO BE RATHER FAVORABLE
FOR FUTURE INTENSIFICATION WITH LOW SHEAR AND VERY WARM WATER FOR
THE NEXT FEW DAYS. IT IS UNCERTAIN...HOWEVER...IF TOMAS CAN TAKE
ADVANTAGE OF THESE CONDITIONS. A LOOK AT GLOBAL MODEL CROSS-
SECTIONS SHOW A TILTED VORTEX INITIALLY...WITH THE GFS/UKMET
SUGGESTING A MORE FAVORABLE VERTICAL VORTEX STRUCTURE FOR
STRENGTHENING IN A DAY OR TWO. THE ECMWF MODEL...WHICH WAS ONE
OF THE FEW MODELS THAT PREDICTED THE WEAKENING OF TOMAS IN THE
EASTERN CARIBBEAN...HAS A QUITE DIFFERENT SCENARIO WITH A GOOD DEAL
OF TILT REMAINING FOR THE NEXT FEW DAYS AND ONLY A MODEST INCREASE
IN WINDS UNTIL AFTER THE TROPICAL CYCLONE LEAVES THE CARIBBEAN.
WITH SUCH DIVERGENCE IN THE GUIDANCE...THE NEW FORECAST IS ABOUT
THE SAME THE PREVIOUS ONE...A LITTLE HIGHER THAN THE MODEL
CONSENSUS.

AN UNCERTAIN INITIAL MOTION ESTIMATE IS 280/7. A CONTINUED
SLOW-DOWN OF THE TROPICAL CYCLONE IS LIKELY AS RIDGING WEAKENS TO
THE NORTH OF TOMAS. A DEEP LAYER LOW ENTERING THE GULF OF MEXICO
IS EXPECTED TO ACCELERATE AND TURN TOMAS TO THE NORTH AND NORTHEAST
ON THURSDAY. WHILE THE MODELS TAKE VARIOUS SPEEDS AND ROUTES TO
GET THERE...THEY REMAIN FOCUSED IN THE DIRECTION OF SOUTHWESTERN
HAITI. THE NHC FORECAST IS ADJUSTED SLIGHTLY TO THE RIGHT OF THE
PREVIOUS FORECAST DURING THE FIRST COUPLE OF DAYS...AND GENERALLY
LIES TO THE SOUTHEAST OF THE MODEL CONSENSUS. THE HWRF AND GFDN
HAVE A RATHER DEEP AND INTENSE CIRCULATION...WHICH APPEAR TO BE
OUTLIERS AND BIASING TVCN...THE VARIABLE CONSENSUS MODEL...TOO FAR
TO THE NORTH.

REGARDLESS OF THE EXACT TRACK AND INTENSITY OF TOMAS...IT APPEARS
THAT THE TROPICAL CYCLONE WILL POSE A SIGNIFICANT THREAT OF HEAVY
RAINFALL OVER HAITI AND THE DOMINICAN REPUBLIC LATER IN THE WEEK.

TROPICAL DEPRESSION TOMAS DISCUSSION NUMBER 21
NWS TPC/NATIONAL HURRICANE CENTER MIAMI FL AL212010
500 AM EDT WED NOV 03 2010

AN AIR FORCE HURRICANE HUNTER AIRCRAFT INVESTIGATING TOMAS A COUPLE
OF HOURS AGO FOUND AN ILL-DEFINED AND ELONGATED CIRCULATION WITH NO
TROPICAL STORM FORCE WINDS AT EITHER THE 925 MB FLIGHT LEVEL OR THE
SURFACE. BASED ON THIS INFORMATION...TOMAS IS BEING DOWNGRADED TO
A TROPICAL DEPRESSION AT THIS TIME. THE PERIPHERAL CLOUD PATTERN
CONTINUES TO SHOW ORGANIZATION WITH FRAGMENTED OUTER BANDS...BUT
THERE IS LITTLE CONVECTIVE ORGANIZATION NEAR THE ESTIMATED CENTER.
THE WEAKENING OVER THE PAST 24 HOURS IS DIFFICULT TO EXPLAIN.
PRECIPITABLE WATER ANALYSES FROM THE UW/CIMSS DO NOT SUGGEST MUCH
OF AN INTRUSION OF DRY AIR INTO THE CIRCULATION. THE CIRRUS
MOTIONS FROM SATELLITE IMAGES SHOW A FAIRLY WELL-DEFINED OUTFLOW
PATTERN...ESPECIALLY OVER THE NORTHERN SEMICIRCLE. THIS WOULD
NORMALLY BE CONSISTENT WITH LIGHT VERTICAL SHEAR. AMSU
AREA-AVERAGED WIND SHEAR DERIVED BY CSU/CIRA...HOWEVER...INDICATE A
RECENT INCREASE IN MID- TO UPPER-LEVEL SHEAR OVER TOMAS. THIS IS
EXPECTED TO BE TEMPORARY AS GLOBAL MODELS PREDICT DECREASING SHEAR
OVER THE NEXT COUPLE OF DAYS. THE INTENSITY FORECAST CONTINUES TO
CALL FOR TOMAS TO RESTRENGTHEN INTO A HURRICANE BEFORE REACHING
LAND. GIVEN THE ERRATIC BEHAVIOR OF THIS TROPICAL CYCLONE THUS
FAR...THIS IS A LOW-CONFIDENCE INTENSITY FORECAST. THE NOAA G-IV
JET IS CURRENTLY CONDUCTING A SYNOPTIC SURVEILLANCE MISSION AROUND
TOMAS WHICH SHOULD GIVE A BETTER ASSESSMENT OF THE DYNAMIC AND
THERMODYNAMIC ENVIRONMENT.

THE HURRICANE HUNTERS FOUND A BROAD AREA OF LIGHT WINDS SURROUNDING
THE LOCATION OF THE MINIMUM PRESSURE...SO THERE IS SIGNIFICANT
UNCERTAINTY IN THE CENTER POSITION AND INITIAL MOTION. OUR BEST
GUESS AT THE LATTER IS 285/4. THE TRACK FORECAST IS BASICALLY
UNCHANGED FROM THE PREVIOUS ADVISORY. TOMAS IS EXPECTED TO TURN
NORTHWARD AND NORTHEASTWARD OVER THE NEXT FEW DAYS IN RESPONSE TO
THE STEERING FLOW AHEAD OF AN APPROACHING MID-TROPOSPHERIC TROUGH.
BY THE END OF THE FORECAST PERIOD...GLOBAL MODELS SHOW THIS TROUGH
LIFTING OUT AND LEAVING TOMAS BEHIND OVER THE SUBTROPICS FOR A FEW
DAYS. ACCORDINGLY...THE OFFICIAL TRACK FORECAST SHOWS A TURN TO
THE RIGHT WITH DECREASING FORWARD SPEED BY DAY 5.

REGARDLESS OF THE EXACT TRACK AND INTENSITY OF TOMAS...THE TROPICAL
CYCLONE WILL POSE A SIGNIFICANT THREAT OF HEAVY RAINFALL...
FLOODING...AND POTENTIAL MUD SLIDES OVER HAITI AND THE
DOMINICAN REPUBLIC LATER IN THE WEEK.

FORECAST POSITIONS AND MAX WINDS

WILL INVESTIGATE THE SYSTEM THIS AFTERNOON TO DETERMINE WHETHER
TOMAS STILL HAS ENOUGH CIRCULATION TO BE CONSIDERED A TROPICAL
CYCLONE. SATELLITE IMAGERY SHOWS THAT A LARGE CONVECTIVE CLUSTER
TO THE EAST OF THE CENTER...AND BASED ON THIS AND THE AIRCRAFT DATA
THE INITIAL INTENSITY REMAINS 30 KT.

THE INITIAL MOTION IS AN UNCERTAIN 295/5. THERE IS LITTLE CHANGE IN
THE FORECAST TRACK OR FORECAST PHILOSOPHY FOR THE FIRST 72 -96 HR
OF THE FORECAST. A DEEP-LAYER TROUGH AND ACCOMPANYING COLD FRONT
MOVING THROUGH THE GULF OF MEXICO AND THE SOUTHEASTERN UNITED
STATES SHOULD CAUSE TOMAS TO RECURVE TOWARD THE NORTHEAST DURING
THE NEXT 48 HR...WITH A GENERALLY NORTHEASTWARD MOTION CONTINUING
THROUGH 72-96 HR. AFTER THAT TIME...THE GUIDANCE BECOMES
DIVERGENT. THE GFDL STALLS THE CYCLONE JUST WEST OF HAITI. THE
UKMET AND NOGAPS FORECAST TOMAS TO SHEAR OFF WITH THE REMNANT
LOW-LEVEL CIRCULATION MOVING SOUTHWESTWARD. FINALLY...THE GFS AND
ECMWF CALL FOR A CONTINUED EASTWARD TO EAST-NORTHEASTWARD MOTION.
THE NEW TRACK FORECAST SHOWS A SLOW EAST-NORTHEASTWARD MOTION FROM
96-120 HR AS A COMPROMISE BETWEEN THESE EXTREMES. OVERALL...THE
FORECAST IS SIMILAR TO BUT FASTER THAN THE PREVIOUS FORECAST.

THE INTENSITY FORECAST IS PROBLEMATIC. FIRST...THE CYCLONE NEEDS TO
SURVIVE ITS CURRENT STATE OF DISORGANIZATION. IF THAT OCCURS...
LIGHT VERTICAL WIND SHEAR AND WARM SEA SURFACE TEMPERATURES APPEAR
FAVORABLE FOR STRENGTHENING FOR THE NEXT 48-72 HR OR SO IF THE
LOW-LEVEL CIRCULATION CAN CONSOLIDATE. THE INTENSITY FORECAST
ASSUMES BOTH OF THESE THINGS WILL HAPPEN...AND THUS CALLS FOR SLOW
STRENGTHENING DURING THIS TIME. WHILE THE GFDL AND SHIPS MODELS
STILL CALL FOR TOMAS TO REGAIN HURRICANE STRENGTH...THE NEW
INTENSITY FORECAST WILL NOT FOLLOW THIS SCENARIO DUE TO CURRENT
TRENDS AND THE LIKELIHOOD OF LAND INTERACTION WITH HISPANIOLA LATER
IN THE FORECAST PERIOD. THE INTENSITY FORECAST IS CLOSE TO BUT
SLIGHTLY LOWER THAN THE INTENSITY CONSENSUS MODEL ICON.

REGARDLESS OF THE EXACT TRACK AND INTENSITY OF TOMAS...THE TROPICAL
CYCLONE WILL POSE A SIGNIFICANT THREAT OF HEAVY RAINFALL...
FLOODING... AND POTENTIAL MUD SLIDES OVER HAITI AND THE DOMINICAN
REPUBLIC LATER IN THE WEEK.
