Area of Interest - Henri
      #95926 - Wed Sep 09 2015 01:10 AM

The stationary low pressure area in the central Atlantic near 30.8N 61.5W has been upgraded to Tropical Depression 8 with sustained winds of 30 knots and a central pressure of 1011MB. With a large windfield the system seems to be more characteristic of a subtropical rather than a tropical cyclone but NHC felt that the system has enough of a tropical structure to label it as such. Slow northerly drift will pick up forward speed in a day or two and eventually become more northeasterly as the system pases close to southeast Newfoundland on its way to the North Atlantic as a post-tropical system by the end of the week.. SSTs of 28C extend northward to 40N Latitude so some additional intensification is certainly a possibility.

Title edited to reflect upgrade to Tropical Storm Henri

Henri remains a significantly sheared system with limited and disorganized convection displaced to the northeast of a very weak center that is moving slowly to the north well to the east northeast of Bermuda. Although currently maintained as a TS, Henri has likely weakened to a TD at best for the moment. A faster movement to the north and northeast is likely by Friday so the timeframe for any additional intensification is limited. Henri remains a marginally classified tropical system that could rapidly become post subtropical.
