TROPICAL STORM IVAN DISCUSSION NUMBER 70
NWS TPC/NATIONAL HURRICANE CENTER MIAMI FL
11 AM EDT THU SEP 23 2004

A BURST OF DEEP CONVECTION FIRED OFF NEAR THE LOW-LEVEL CENTER
EARLIER THIS MORNING AND AIR FORCE RESERVE RECON FOUND 70 KT 1500
FT FLIGHT-LEVEL WINDS...OR EQUAL TO ABOUT 56 KT SURFACE WINDS...
AND A PRESSURE OF 998 MB. HOWEVER...SINCE THEN THE CONVECTION HAS
WEAKENED AND A SUBSEQUENT PASS THROUGH THE CENTER INDICATED A
CENTRAL PRESSURE OF 1000 MB. THE INITIAL INTENSITY OF 50 KT IS A
BLEND OF A 45 KT SURFACE WIND SUPPORTED BY THE 1000 MB PRESSURE...
AND THE 56 KT SURFACE WIND CONVERSION.

THE INITIAL MOTION ESTIMATE IS 310/13. IVAN IS EXPECTED TO MOVE
NORTHWESTWARD TO WEST-NORTHWESTWARD AND BE INLAND WITHIN THE NEXT
12 HOURS OVER SOUTHWESTERN LOUISIANA OR THE UPPER-TEXAS COAST.
AFTERWARDS...RAPID WEAKENING SHOULD ALLOW THE LOW-LEVEL CIRCULATION
TO DECOUPLE FROM THE MID- AND UPPER-LEVEL CIRCULATIONS. THIS WILL
ALLOW THE LOW-LEVEL CIRCULATION TO BE STEERED SLOWLY WEST AND
SOUTHWESTWARD BY A LARGE RIDGE FORECAST TO BUILD EASTWARD OVER THE
CENTRAL AND SOUTHERN PLAINS STATES IN 36-48 HOURS. THIS TRACK
SCENARIO IS CONSISTENT WITH THE SHALLOW BAM MODEL...AND THE MOST OF
THE GLOBAL MODELS.

WHILE IVAN IS NOT EXPECTED TO BE A PROLIFIC WIND PRODUCER...ITS SLOW
FORWARD SPEED FOR THE NEXT SEVERAL DAYS MAY BRING UP LARGE AMOUNTS
OF GULF MOISTURE THAT COULD RESULT IN LOCALLY HEAVY RAINFALL.
