TROPICAL STORM FRED DISCUSSION NUMBER   4
NWS NATIONAL HURRICANE CENTER MIAMI FL       AL062015
500 PM AST SUN AUG 30 2015

Fred has continued to strengthen this afternoon.  A new burst of
deep convection has developed over the center, with the CDO becoming
more symmetric.  Late afternoon visible satellite pictures also
reveal increased banding in all quadrants.  AMSR-2 and GCOM
microwave data from late this morning indicated that Fred continues
to exhibit a well-defined inner core with a closed low-level ring in
the 37 GHz imagery.  The initial intensity has been raised to 55 kt,
which is in agreement with a subjective data T-number of 3.5 from
TAFB and T3.4 from UW/CIMSS ADT.

Fred is forecast to remain in a favorable environment characterized
by very low vertical wind shear, warm water, and sufficient
mid-level moisture during the next day or so.  Therefore, additional
strengthening is expected and the NHC forecast calls for Fred to
become a hurricane tonight or early Monday.  This is supported by
the statistical guidance and the HWRF model which bring Fred to
hurricane status.  In about 36 hours, the tropical cyclone
will be moving into a more hostile environment of increasing
southwesterly shear, cooler sea surface temperatures, and a more
stable air mass.  This should result in weakening throughout the
remainder of the forecast period, and the new NHC forecast weakens
Fred to a tropical depression by 120 h.

Fred has been moving faster than predicted today, and the initial
motion estimate is 310/14 kt.  The forecast track philosophy remains
unchanged from before.  The cyclone should move northwestward toward
a break in the subtropical ridge during the next day or so.  In a
couple of days, Fred should turn west-northwestward as the ridge
rebuilds to the north of the cyclone over the eastern and
central Atlantic.  The updated NHC track forecast is a little north
of the previous advisory after 48 hours to be in better agreement
with the GFEX (GFS and ECMWF) consensus model.

product, does not have the capability of displaying warnings for the

DISCUSSION AND 48-HOUR OUTLOOK
------------------------------
At 500 PM AST (2100 UTC), the center of Tropical Storm Fred was
located near latitude 14.4 North, longitude 21.3 West.  Fred is
moving toward the northwest near 16 mph (26 km/h).  A northwestward
motion at a slightly slower forward speed is expected through
Tuesday.

Maximum sustained winds have increased to near 65 mph (100 km/h)
with higher gusts.  Additional strengthening is expected, and
Fred is forecast to become a hurricane tonight or early Monday.

Tropical storm force winds extend outward up to 70 miles (110 km)
from the center.

The estimated minimum central pressure is 998 mb (29.47 inches).


HAZARDS AFFECTING LAND
----------------------
WIND:  Tropical storm conditions are expected to reach portions of
the Cape Verde Islands overnight, with hurricane conditions
beginning late tonight or early Monday morning.

STORM SURGE:  A storm surge is expected to produce coastal flooding
in areas of onshore winds in the Cape Verde Islands.  Near the
coast, the surge will be accompanied by large and dangerous waves.

RAINFALL:  Fred is expected to produce total rain accumulations of
3 to 5 inches over the Cape Verde Islands, with possible isolated
maximum amounts of 8 inches.  These rains could produce
life-threatening flash flooding and mud slides.


NEXT ADVISORY
-------------
Next intermediate advisory at 800 PM AST.
Next complete advisory at 1100 PM AST.

TROPICAL WEATHER OUTLOOK
NWS NATIONAL HURRICANE CENTER MIAMI FL
200 PM EDT SUN AUG 30 2015

For the North Atlantic...Caribbean Sea and the Gulf of Mexico:

The National Hurricane Center is issuing advisories on Tropical
Storm Fred, located a couple of hundred miles east-southeast of
Praia in the Cape Verde Islands.

A trough of low pressure associated with the remnants of Erika is
producing areas of heavy rain over portions of south Florida, the
Florida Keys, and western Cuba. Although development of this
system appears unlikely due to strong upper-level winds, locally
heavy rains and gusty winds are expected to spread northward across
Florida and the eastern Gulf of Mexico later today and Monday.
Additional information on this system can be found in local forecast
products issued by the National Weather Service and the
meteorological service of Cuba.
* Formation chance through 48 hours...low...10 percent
* Formation chance through 5 days...low...10 percent

Public Advisories on Tropical Storm Fred are issued under WMO
header WTNT31 KNHC and under AWIPS header MIATCPAT1.
