TROPICAL STORM IVAN DISCUSSION NUMBER 69
NWS TPC/NATIONAL HURRICANE CENTER MIAMI FL
5 AM EDT THU SEP 23 2004

IVAN REMAINS A POORLY-ORGANIZED TROPICAL STORM...WITH MOST OF THE
DEEP CONVECTION BEING SHEARED TO THE NORTHEAST OF THE LOW-LEVEL
CENTER. THERE IS STILL A POSSIBILITY OF THE SHEAR RELAXING...AND
SOME INTENSIFICATION...BEFORE THE CENTER CROSSES THE COAST.
HOWEVER...THE WINDOW OF OPPORTUNITY FOR THIS TO HAPPEN IS CLOSING.

LATEST CENTER FIXES INDICATE AN INCREASE IN FORWARD SPEED AND THE
INITIAL MOTION ESTIMATE IS 300/13. IVAN IS BEING STEERED MAINLY BY
A LOW- TO MID-LEVEL RIDGE TO ITS NORTH...WHICH THE GFS MODEL
PREDICTS TO WEAKEN WITHIN THE NEXT 24 HOURS. THUS SOME SLOWING OF
THE FORWARD SPEED IS ANTICIPATED. THE GLOBAL MODELS SHOW A SHARP
LEFTWARD TURN IN 24 TO 48 HOURS IN RESPONSE TO A MID- TO
UPPER-LEVEL TROUGH OVER THE SOUTHWESTERN GULF. THE OFFICIAL
FORECAST ASSUMES THAT IVAN WILL NOT BE A DEEP ENOUGH CYCLONE TO
RESPOND SIGNIFICANTLY TO THIS TROUGH. THE CURRENT OFFICIAL TRACK IS
A LITTLE TO THE LEFT OF THE PREVIOUS ONE...AND IN BETWEEN THE
MEDIUM AND SHALLOW LAYER BAM TRACKS.
