1040 PM EDT Tue Aug 14 2018

For the North Atlantic...Caribbean Sea and the Gulf of Mexico:

Special outlook issued to update discussion of the area of low
pressure located well southeast of Cape Race, Newfoundland.

Updated: Satellite imagery indicates that shower and thunderstorm
activity associated with the area of low pressure located about 800
miles south-southeast of Cape Race, Newfoundland, has become better
organized during the past few hours. Satellite-derived wind data
also indicate that the surface circulation has become better defined
since earlier today. Conditions appear conducive for some additional
development during the next day or so, and a subtropical depression
or subtropical storm could form overnight or on Wednesday while the
low moves northward to northeastward. Later this week, the low is
expected to move northeastward over colder waters and merge with a
frontal zone over the northern Atlantic.
* Formation chance through 48 hours...medium...60 percent.
* Formation chance through 5 days...medium...60 percent.

  • Tropical Depression Fourteen-E Forecast Discussion Number 1 Issued at 800 PM PDT Tue Aug 14 2018 191 WTPZ44 KNHC 150238 TCDEP4 Tropical Depression Fourteen-E Discussion Number 1 NWS National Hurricane Center Miami FL EP142018 800 PM PDT Tue Aug 14 2018 The area of disturbed weather and associated low pressure area that the NHC has been tracking for the past few days has acquired enough organized deep convection for the system to be declared a tropical depression. Although the convection had waned a little during the day, recent satellite imagery indicates that convection near the well-defined center has begun to increase and that outer banding features in the western semicircle have been improving during the past few hours. The initial intensity of 30 kt is based on a Dvorak satellite intensity estimate of T2.0/30 kt from TAFB. The initial motion estimate is 265/12 kt. For the next 72 hours, the tropical cyclone is forecast to move westward or slightly south of due west along the southern periphery of a broad deep-layer ridge that is located to the north of the depression. The ridge is expected to weaken by 96 hours as a mid-latitude low/trough currently located off the coast of southern California digs southward and then westward during the forecast period. This pattern should allow the cyclone to move west-northward into the weakness in the ridge and start gaining latitude. For this initial forecast of the system, the NHC track lies close to a blend of the consensus track models HCCA and TVCE. The vertical wind shear is forecast to remain around 10 kt or less for the next 72 hours or so, with a further decrease on days 4 and 5 when the system moves underneath and/or develops an upper-level anticyclone, conditions that typically favor significant intensification. However, since the circulation envelope is currently elongated northeast-to-southwest, it will take a couple of days for the system to become more symmetrical, which could then enhance the strengthening process. By that time, however, sea- surface temperatures and mid-level humidity values will be marginal for significant intensification to occur. As a result, only slow but steady strengthening is indicated in this first intensity forecast, which closely follows the HCCA intensity consensus model.
