Tropical Storm Teddy Discussion Number 8
NWS National Hurricane Center Miami FL AL202020
1100 AM AST Mon Sep 14 2020

A timely 1156 UTC ASCAT-A pass was very helpful in locating the
center of Teddy, which was farther south and west than previously
estimated. Satellite imagery shows that the cloud pattern is
gradually becoming better organized, with the center located near
the northern edge of a curved convective band. Based on the ASCAT
data and the latest Dvorak classification from TAFB and SAB, the
intensity remains 35 kt for this advisory.

The initial motion estimate is a somewhat uncertain 270/12. Despite
the adjustment to the center position, the overall track forecast
reasoning has not changed. Teddy will be steered by a deep-layer
ridge located over the central Atlantic, which should result in a
west-northwestward motion resuming by tonight. The ridge is
forecast to shift eastward with time, and Teddy is forecast to turn
more northwestward in a couple of days around the western edge of
the ridge. The new NHC track forecast has been adjusted about a
degree to the left of the previous NHC prediction, largely due to
the adjustment in the initial position, and lies near the
consensus aids and the middle of the guidance envelope.

Teddy will be moving through a favorable environment for
intensification for the next several days, with SSTs increasing
along the forecast track and shear remaining relatively low. The
new NHC intensity forecast is similar to the previous one, showing
Teddy becoming a hurricane in 36 hours and reaching major hurricane
strength in 4 to 5 days. This forecast is close to IVCN through the
first 48 hours and then trends toward the higher HCCA guidance
after that time.
