    TD13 has improved since last night with a healthy blob of convection over the center. The depression may already be a storm but the NHC are waiting for it to be investigated before considering an upgrade. Further strengthening is likely before landfall in around 36-48hrs time. TD13 isn't moving anywhere fast and has been stationary over the last few hours so if it can remain over water for longer it will obviously be stronger than anticipated.

    TROPICAL DEPRESSION THIRTEEN DISCUSSION NUMBER 4

    NWS TPC/NATIONAL HURRICANE CENTER MIAMI FL AL132007

    1100 AM EDT WED SEP 26 2007

    THERE HAS BEEN AN INCREASE IN DEEP CONVECTION AND ORGANIZATION OF

    THE DEPRESSION'S CLOUD PATTERN OVER THE PAST SEVERAL HOURS. DVORAK

    SATELLITE CLASSIFICATIONS FROM TAFB AND SAB ARE AT 30 AND 35 KT

    RESPECTIVELY. WE WILL WAIT FOR THE NEXT AIR FORCE HURRICANE HUNTER

    FIX SCHEDULED FOR 1800 UTC TO SEE IF THE SYSTEM HAS INDEED

    STRENGTHENED INTO A TROPICAL STORM. AN UPPER-LEVEL CYCLONE IN THE

    VICINITY OF TUXPAN MEXICO IS MOVING SOUTHWESTWARD...AND AWAY FROM

    THE TROPICAL CYCLONE...CREATING AN ENVIRONMENT THAT IS MORE

    FAVORABLE FOR STRENGTHENING. CIRRUS MOTIONS SHOW THAT THE

    ANTICYCLONIC OUTFLOW IS BECOMING BETTER ESTABLISHED OVER THE

    SYSTEM. THE OFFICIAL INTENSITY FORECAST...WHICH IS SIMILAR TO THE

    SHIPS AND GFDL GUIDANCE...COULD BE CONSERVATIVE...PARTICULARLY IF

    THE TROPICAL CYCLONE REMAINS OVER WATER LONGER THAN EXPECTED.

    THE INITIAL MOTION IS AN UNCERTAIN 180/2. A WEAK STEERING CURRENT

    HAS PREVAILED OVER THE SOUTHWESTERN GULF OF MEXICO OVER THE PAST

    COUPLE OF DAYS...AND THE DEPRESSION WILL PROBABLY MOVE QUITE SLOWLY

    AND ERRATICALLY TODAY. GLOBAL MODELS FORECAST A WEAK MID-LEVEL

    RIDGE TO BUILD EASTWARD SLOWLY FROM NORTHERN MEXICO OVER THE GULF

    OF MEXICO. THIS SHOULD EVENTUALLY RESULT IN A SOUTHWESTWARD TO

    WESTWARD MOTION OF THE TROPICAL CYCLONE TOWARD THE COAST OF MEXICO.

    ALTHOUGH THE CONSENSUS OF THE TRACK GUIDANCE MODELS INDICATES THE

    ABOVEMENTIONED MOTION...THERE ARE SIGNIFICANT DIFFERENCES AMONGST

    THE INDIVIDUAL MODELS. IT SHOULD BE NOTED... HOWEVER...THAT ALL OF

    THE DYNAMICAL MODELS KEEP THE SYSTEM OFFSHORE THROUGH 36 HOURS.

    THE OFFICIAL FORECAST FOLLOWS THE CONSENSUS AND IS SIMILAR TO THE

    TRACK FORECAST FROM THE PREVIOUS NHC PACKAGE.

    A TROPICAL STORM WATCH WILL LIKELY BE REQUIRED FOR A PORTION OF THE

    GULF COAST OF MEXICO LATER TODAY.

    Quick update, TD13 has become tropcial storm Lorenzo and winds have jumped upto 60mph, massive increase in the estimated wind speeds over the last 6hrs from a massive convective burst on the southern side of the LLC, indeed the iwnds have raised every bit as fast as Humberto, if not even faster!!

    System is stil lbeing sheared on its northern side but the LLC appears to be just on the right side of this higher shear and the southern side of the convection which is really explosive is in a weak shear set-up and the whole system is heading towards that. I certainly wouldn't rule out hurricane status from this system given the way Humberto strengthened.

    Could get close to cat-2 status actually if shear does ease off a touch, given how fast Humberto also developed.

    This certainly has blown up, I was only expecting a 40kt tropical storm at best when I checked this evening and was surprised just like with Humberto at how the system has rapidly intensified. I was never expecting Lorenzo to become a hurricane but indeed it has a good shot at becoming one.

    A Hurricane indeed it is. !. And a possible CAT 2 according to NHC.

    Yes, I suspect Lorenzo will come under some post-season analysis especially as recon didn't manage to get to him until 2 hours after landfall. At the rate he was strengthening he might have been a cat 2 just before landfall.

    TROPICAL STORM LORENZO DISCUSSION NUMBER 12

    NWS TPC/NATIONAL HURRICANE CENTER MIAMI FL AL132007

    500 AM EDT FRI SEP 28 2007

    LORENZO MADE LANDFALL BEFORE THE LAST AIR FORCE RECONNAISSANCE PLANE

    ARRIVED....BUT RADAR IMAGERY FROM ALVARADO MEXICO SUGGESTS THAT THE

    CENTER MADE LANDFALL AT APPROXIMATELY 0500 UTC...ABOUT 40 N MI

    SOUTH-SOUTHEAST OF TUXPAN. THE RADAR PRESENTATION OF THE EYEWALL

    WAS DEGRADING AS THE CENTER WAS CROSSING THE COAST...SO THE

    LANDFALL INTENSITY IS RATHER UNCERTAIN BUT ESTIMATED TO BE 65 KT.

    GOES IMAGERY AFTER THE SATELLITE ECLIPSE PERIOD SHOWS MUCH WARMER

    CLOUD TOPS NEAR THE CENTER THAN PRIOR TO LANDFALL...BUT A RATHER

    POTENT BAND OF DEEP CONVECTION NOW EXTENDS SOUTHWARD FROM NEAR THE

    CENTER OF LORENZO TO SOUTH OF VERACRUZ. THE SLOW MOTION OF THIS

    SYSTEM WILL LIKELY PRODUCE TORRENTIAL RAINS...POSSIBLY UP TO 15

    INCHES IN SOME LOCATIONS...THAT ARE EXPECTED TO CAUSE LIFE-

    THREATENING FLASH FLOODS AND MUD SLIDES.

    SINCE LANDFALL...THE CYCLONE APPEARS TO HAVE STARTED A SLIGHT TURN

    TO THE RIGHT AROUND THE MID-LEVEL RIDGE TO ITS NORTH...AND THE

    INITIAL MOTION ESTIMATE IS 280/6. A GENERAL WEST-NORTHWESTWARD

    MOTION IS FORECAST...SLOWLY TAKING LORENZO FARTHER INLAND OVER

    EAST-CENTRAL MEXICO. THE PACE OF DECLINE IN THE OFFICIAL INTENSITY

    FORECAST IS A LITTLE FASTER THAN THE DECAY SHIPS DUE TO THE SMALL

    SIZE OF THE CYCLONE.

    FORECAST POSITIONS AND MAX WINDS

    • August thunderstorms bring the risk of flooding and disruption

      Any rain should be welcome looking at the parched ground but intense downpours aren't enough. Thunderstorms bring the risk of flash flooding as the rain hits the hard, dry ground. Read the full update here
