Subtropical Storm Teresa Discussion Number 1
NWS National Hurricane Center Miami FL AL192021
500 PM AST Fri Sep 24 2021

The disturbance just north of Bermuda interacting with a mid- to
upper-level low has developed a prominent band of deep convection
within its eastern semicircle as well as a well-defined surface
center. Additionally, the system is not displaying any significant
baroclinicity (i.e., frontal boundaries), so it is not an
extratropical cyclone. All of which indicates that the system has
evolved into a subtropical cyclone. ASCAT-C scatterometer data from
1440Z suggested peak winds were around 40 kt, which is the basis
for calling the system Subtropical Storm Teresa.

The system is moving toward the northwest at 12 kt is it rounds the
northern part of the mid- to upper-level low. By Saturday, Teresa
should turn northward and then northeastward, as it begins to be
caught up in the mid-latitude westerlies. The forecast is based upon
the TVCN track consensus technique.

Teresa will not be long-lived. A developing extratropical system
forming off of New England should absorb Teresa between 36 and 48
hours. Until then, the subtropical storm has a small window to
intensify slightly while traversing lukewarm water and
encountering moderate vertical shear. If deep convection develops
near the system's center, then Teresa could evolve into a tropical
storm. However, it is more likely that Teresa will remain a
subtropical storm until dissipation in around two days.

It is worth noting that Teresa will likely be the 9th so-called
"shortie" of the 2021 hurricane season -- systems that are short-
lived and relatively weak.
