Tropical Storm Tammy Discussion Number  37
NWS National Hurricane Center Miami FL       AL202023
1100 AM AST Sat Oct 28 2023

Tammy has not changed much this morning. The impact of strong
westerly wind shear is evident, with an exposed low-level center
apparent in visible satellite imagery. Modest deep convection
remains confined to the eastern half of the circulation, and cloud
tops have continued to gradually warm. The subjective TAFB
satellite estimate of T3.0/45 kt and a blend of objective satellite
estimates continue to support an initial intensity of 45 kt for this

Under the continued influence of strong shear for the next 48
hours, as well as a dry mid-level airmass approaching from the
northwest, Tammy is expected to continue weakening. Global and
regional models suggest that most of the deep convection will
diminish by late Sunday or Monday, at which time Tammy is forecast
to become a remnant low.  The NHC forecast is similar to the prior
forecast and represents a blend of the prior forecast and intensity
consensus models.

Tammy has accelerated this morning and is now moving east-northeast
or 080/10 kt. The tropical storm is expected to continue eastward
and southeastward for the next day or so along the northern
periphery of a mid-level ridge. Early next week, Tammy and its
remnants are forecast to make a gradual turn toward the
south and southwest before dissipating. The new NHC forecast is
slightly faster than the prior advisory and represents a blend of
consensus aids HCCA and TVCN with the prior NHC forecast.
