    HURRICANE EDOUARD DISCUSSION NUMBER  25
    NWS NATIONAL HURRICANE CENTER MIAMI FL       AL062014
    1100 AM AST WED SEP 17 2014
    
    Edouard is maintaining two concentric rings as indicated in the
    latest visible satellite images and recent NOAA Hurricane Hunter
    aircraft wind data.  Even though the central pressure is rather low,
    958 mb, the pressure gradient is spread out over the large area
    comprising the two rings, leading to a lower peak wind than a
    typical cyclone would have. Flight-level and SFMR winds still
    support an intensity of about 80 kt, which is unchanged from the
    previous estimate.
    
    Edouard is accelerating northeastward with a motion of 045/20 kt.
    The hurricane is being steered by mid-latitude flow between the
    subtropical ridge and a broad trough over the western Atlantic
    Ocean.  This pattern should force Edouard to move faster toward the
    east-northeast by late tonight, and eastward by late tomorrow.   In
    a couple of days, Edouard (or its remnants) should turn southward
    to the west of the Azores around a large trough over the eastern
    Atlantic Ocean.  The track guidance remains tightly clustered for
    the first 48 hours but continues to show some divergence during
    the post-tropical phase.  The ECMWF has remained consistent on a
    sharper southward turn, while the GFS is showing a more gradual
    equatorward motion.  Because of the consistency of the ECMWF during
    the past few runs, the latest NHC track is staying on the southwest
    side of the model envelope at long range, roughly halfway between
    the model consensus and the ECMWF.
    
    Edouard is moving quickly toward the northeast and should pass over
    waters cooler than 26C in less than 12 hours.  Only a gradual
    weakening is shown during the first 24 hours due to cooler waters
    and moderate shear.  All of the global models show a sharp increase
    in shear after that time while the cyclone is moving over much
    colder water.  Thus a more rapid weakening is shown beginning late
    tomorrow, which is similar to a blend of the previous NHC forecast,
    the Florida State Superensemble, and the intensity consensus.  The
    cyclone is expected to become post-tropical in 2 or 3 days, which
    is in good agreement with the global models.  Although Edouard is
    expected to traverse warmer waters by the end of the forecast
    period, strong northwesterly shear is anticipated to hinder any
    redevelopment potential.
