<span-size:10.0pt;font-family:"Courier New"">NWS NATIONAL HURRICANE CENTER MIAMI FL       AL052015

<span-size:10.0pt;font-family:"Courier New"">500 AM AST FRI AUG 28 2015

<span-size:10.0pt;font-family:"Courier New""> 

<span-size:10.0pt;font-family:"Courier New"">Erika remains disorganized, with the deep convection decreasing in

<span-size:10.0pt;font-family:"Courier New"">coverage and intensity to the east of the estimated center position

<span-size:10.0pt;font-family:"Courier New"">during the past few hours. Despite this, the cyclone continues to

<span-size:10.0pt;font-family:"Courier New"">produce a large area of tropical storm force winds east of the

<span-size:10.0pt;font-family:"Courier New"">center, and the initial intensity of 45 kt and central pressure of

<span-size:10.0pt;font-family:"Courier New"">1006 mb are based on recent surface observations from Puerto Rico.

<span-size:10.0pt;font-family:"Courier New""> 

<span-size:10.0pt;font-family:"Courier New"">The center of Erika continues to be rather disorganized, and the

<span-size:10.0pt;font-family:"Courier New"">initial position and motion of 290/15 are based on a blend of

<span-size:10.0pt;font-family:"Courier New"">satellite imagery and continuity. While the overall track forecast

<span-size:10.0pt;font-family:"Courier New"">reasoning has not changed, the initial position and motion and

<span-size:10.0pt;font-family:"Courier New"">an overall weaker depiction of Erika in the global models have

<span-size:10.0pt;font-family:"Courier New"">resulted in a leftward shift in the track guidance this cycle and

<span-size:10.0pt;font-family:"Courier New"">an increase in the forward speed. A west-northwestward motion is

<span-size:10.0pt;font-family:"Courier New"">expected for the first couple of days as Erika moves around the

<span-size:10.0pt;font-family:"Courier New"">southern periphery of the subtropical ridge to the north. After that

<span-size:10.0pt;font-family:"Courier New"">time, a northwestward and northward turn and a decrease in forward

<span-size:10.0pt;font-family:"Courier New"">speed are forecast as Erika moves around the western edge of the

<span-size:10.0pt;font-family:"Courier New"">ridge. The new NHC track is to the left of and faster than the

<span-size:10.0pt;font-family:"Courier New"">previous advisory and is near the multi model consensus through 36

<span-size:10.0pt;font-family:"Courier New"">hours. After that time, the NHC track is east of almost all the

<span-size:10.0pt;font-family:"Courier New"">guidance out of respect to continuity. Needless to say, confidence

<span-size:10.0pt;font-family:"Courier New"">in the track forecast, especially after 48 hours, remains very low

<span-size:10.0pt;font-family:"Courier New"">given that the details of the track depend on how much the cyclone

<span-size:10.0pt;font-family:"Courier New"">recovers from the shear and the effects of land interaction in the

<span-size:10.0pt;font-family:"Courier New"">short term.

<span-size:10.0pt;font-family:"Courier New""> 

<span-size:10.0pt;font-family:"Courier New"">Strong shear is expected to continue or even increase during the

<span-size:10.0pt;font-family:"Courier New"">next day or so. The combination of the shear and interaction with

<span-size:10.0pt;font-family:"Courier New"">Hispaniola suggests that Erika is likely to weaken and could even

<span-size:10.0pt;font-family:"Courier New"">dissipate in the next 12 to 24 hours. Assuming that the cyclone

<span-size:10.0pt;font-family:"Courier New"">survives, there is an opportunity for some intensification on days

<span-size:10.0pt;font-family:"Courier New"">2 and 3 of the forecast period as the shear decreases, and that is

<span-size:10.0pt;font-family:"Courier New"">reflected in the NHC forecast. After that time, since the NHC track

<span-size:10.0pt;font-family:"Courier New"">now takes Erika inland over the Florida peninsula, weakening is

<span-size:10.0pt;font-family:"Courier New"">shown at days 4 and 5. Much of the guidance has trended weaker this

<span-size:10.0pt;font-family:"Courier New"">cycle, and the NHC intensity forecast is close to the HWRF and the

<span-size:10.0pt;font-family:"Courier New"">IVCN consensus. Confidence in the intensity forecast remains very

<span-size:10.0pt;font-family:"Courier New"">low.

<span-size:10.0pt;font-family:"Courier New""> 

<span-size:10.0pt;font-family:"Courier New"">The greatest short-term threat posed by Erika continues to be

<span-size:10.0pt;font-family:"Courier New"">very heavy rainfall over portions of the the Virgin Islands, Puerto

<span-size:10.0pt;font-family:"Courier New"">Rico, the Dominican Republic, and Haiti today. These rains could

<span-size:10.0pt;font-family:"Courier New"">produce flash floods and mud slides.
