Tropical Depression Three Discussion Number   3

NWS National Hurricane Center Miami FL       AL032020

400 AM CDT Tue Jun 02 2020

 

Satellite data, Mexican radar data from Sabancuy, and nearby surface

observations indicate that the depression has become a little better

organized and has strengthened slightly since the previous advisory.

 Radar data indicate a mass of convection has developed north of and

over the low-level center, and a broken curved band has also formed

in the eastern semicircle. The initial intensity has been increased

to 30 kt based on a 0201 UTC ASCAT-A overpass that showed a couple

of 27-kt vectors located in the northeastern quadrant outside of the

most active convection. An Air Force Reserve reconnaissance

aircraft is scheduled to investigate the depression later this

morning.

 

The initial motion is westward or 270/02 kt. The latest 00Z model

guidance continues to show the depression remaining embedded within

the larger Central American gyre for the next few days, with the

gyre gradually contracting around the depression, with the two

entities merging into one system by 72 hours.  Similar to last

night, tonight's model runs have again abandoned the development of

a secondary low east of the depression and moving it northward

toward the U. S Gulf coast. This may be due in part to the lack of

Mexican and Central American upper-air data at 0000 UTC, except for

the Belize sounding. But the global and regional models are in

overall in good agreement on the cyclone remaining trapped in a

break in the subtropical ridge to the east and west of the

depression.  By 72-96 hours, a weak shortwave trough is forecast to

drop southward out of the southern plains and into the ridge

weakness and act as a catalyst to nudge the depression slowly

northward on days 4 and 5.  Until that time, the cyclone is

expected to meander over the Bay of Campeche for the next 2-3

days, possibly making landfall along the coast of extreme

southeastern Mexico and the west coast of Yucatan.  The new NHC

forecast track is similar to the previous advisory track, and

brings the center close to the coast of Mexico on days 2 and 3.  It

should be noted, though, that in 5 days there could be a cyclone

near the forecast point that is not actually TD-3 due to land

interaction and the possible formation of a secondary cyclone.

 

Although the vertical wind shear is forecast to remain low while the

cyclone remains trapped in the Bay of Campeche during the next few

days, only slow strengthening is expected due to possible land

interaction and intrusions of dry air caused by southwesterly

downslope flow coming off of the mountains in the state of Chiapas,

which already appears to be underway based on satellite and radar

imagery.  After the cyclone starts moving northward, increasing

southerly shear is expected to inhibit any significant or rapid

strengthening. An alternative intensity forecast scenario is that

the cyclone moves far enough inland over Mexico to dissipate

completely in less than 5 days as forecast by the GFS and HWRF

models.

 

Given the complexity of the situation, both the track and intensity

forecasts are currently low confidence.  However, either of the

current scenarios will result in widespread heavy rains over

portions of southern Mexico and Central America.

 

 

Key Messages:

 

1. Deadly flooding has already been occurring in portions of

Guatemala and El  Salvador.  The depression is expected to bring

heavy rainfall to portions of southern Mexico, Guatemala, Honduras

and El Salvador, which could cause life-threatening flash flooding

and mudslides. Refer to products from your local weather office for

more information.

 

2. Tropical storm conditions are expected along the coast of Mexico

where a tropical storm warning is in effect.

 

3. The system is forecast to begin moving northward across the Gulf

of Mexico later this week.  However, it is too soon to specify the

location and timing of any potential impacts along the U.S. Gulf

Coast.  Interests in these areas should monitor the progress of this

system through the week and ensure they have their hurricane plan in

place as we begin the season.
