The non-tropical low out in the open northern atlantic has gained enough organisation to be classed a subtropical depression. The system could become tropical before it gets absorbed by a larger extratropical cyclone in a couple days. Despite ony being over waters of 24C, the NHC call for it to become a 40kt tropical storm before it gets absorbed. 24C may sound a little low, but we've only got to remember back to Epsilon, Vince, Delta, and Zita of 2005, which all did very well over similar sea temps or even a couple degrees lower. Anyway, this system isn't going to affect land but it's certainly an interesting system.

SUBTROPICAL DEPRESSION ELEVEN DISCUSSION NUMBER 1

NWS TPC/NATIONAL HURRICANE CENTER MIAMI FL AL112007

500 AM EDT SUN SEP 23 2007

THE NON-TROPICAL LOW PRESSURE SYSTEM THAT HAS BEEN MEANDERING OVER

THE NORTH CENTRAL ATLANTIC DURING THE PAST FEW DAYS HAS BEEN

PRODUCING SOME PERSISTENT DEEP CONVECTION DURING THE LAST 12 HOURS

OR SO. THAT CONVECTION HAD INITIALLY BEEN LIMITED TO THE WESTERN

SEMICIRCLE...BUT HAS BEEN STEADILY WRAPPING AROUND THE

SOUTHERN SEMICIRCLE OVERNIGHT. VERY RECENTLY THE CONVECTION HAS

ALSO INCREASED TO THE EAST OF THE CIRCULATION CENTER...WHERE SOME

LONG-RANGE LIGHTNING SIGNATURES HAVE EVEN BEEN DETECTED. TAFB

PROVIDED A TROPICAL DVORAK T-NUMBER OF 2.0...WHILE THE SAB

CLASSIFICATION WAS SUBTROPICAL 2.5. THE CYCLONE FELL IN THE GAP

BETWEEN QUIKSCAT PASSES ABOUT 12 HOURS AGO...AND DATA FROM A NEW

OVERPASS HAS NOT YET ARRIVED. THE INITIAL INTENSITY IS SET TO 30

KT. THE SYSTEM IS DESIGNATED SUBTROPICAL FOR NOW...GIVEN THAT IT

IS STILL WELL-INVOLVED WITH AN UPPER-LEVEL LOW...AND SINCE THE

CONVECTION IS STILL A BIT DISTANT FROM THE CENTER. THE RECENT

TRENDS IN SATELLITE IMAGERY...HOWEVER...SUGGEST THE SYSTEM IS

GRADUALLY GAINING MORE TROPICAL CHARACTERISTICS AND SHOULD BECOME A

TROPICAL CYCLONE LATER TODAY.

THE DEPRESSION HAS REMAINED STATIONARY FOR THE PAST SEVERAL

HOURS...TRAPPED WITHIN A LARGE MID- TO UPPER-LEVEL CUTOFF LOW.

ALL AVAILABLE MODEL GUIDANCE INDICATES THIS WILL CHANGE

SOON...HOWEVER...AS A LARGE EXTRATROPICAL SYSTEM MOVES EASTWARD

OVER ATLANTIC CANADA DURING THE NEXT 24 HOURS. THAT LARGER SYSTEM

WILL PULL THE DEPRESSION NORTHWARD AND EVENTUALLY ABSORB IT WITHIN

THE NEXT COUPLE OF DAYS. THE OFFICIAL FORECAST RELIES ON MODEL

GUIDANCE THAT IS IN VERY GOOD AGREEMENT ON THIS SCENARIO...AND

CALLS FOR THE SYSTEM TO BE ABSORBED IN 48 HOURS OR LESS. DURING

THE NEXT 24 HOURS...THERE IS SOME OPPORTUNITY FOR A LITTLE

STRENGTHENING OVER SSTS NEAR 24 CELSIUS...AND THE OFFICIAL FORECAST

CALLS FOR THE CYCLONE TO REACH 40 KT BEFORE TRAVERSING COOLER

WATERS AND BECOMING EXTRATROPICAL.

Subtropical depression Eleven has been upgdraded to Subtropical Storm Jerry. Winds justified the upgrade but the storm is still sub tropical as convection is not anywhere near the center.

Not sure I totally agree but Jerry is now a proper TS, barely with 35Kt

THE SATELLITE APPEARANCE OF JERRY NOW RESEMBLES THAT OF A SHEARED

TROPICAL CYCLONE. HOWEVER...CONVECTION IS RATHER LIMITED AND

CONFINED TO THE NORTHEAST QUADRANT. A 2204 UTC QUIKSCAT PASS

INDICATES THAT THE RADIUS OF MAXIMUM WINDS HAS DECREASED DURING THE

PAST 12 HOURS AND IS NOW ABOUT 45 NM. BASED ON THE SMALLER RADIUS

OF MAXIMUM WINDS AND THE WEAK WARM CORE SEEN IN AMSU DATA...JERRY

IS NOW CLASSIFIED AS A TROPICAL CYCLONE. THE INITIAL INTENSITY

REMAINS 35 KT BASED ON THE QUIKSCAT DATA.
