COASTAL SE SC
.
SATELLITE ANALYSIS AND TRENDS...LATEST CHANNEL 2 IMAGERY INDICATES THAT
REMNANT CIRCULATION FROM ERIKA CONTINUES TO PROGRESS E THIS MORNING AND
WAS EXITING THE COAST IN THE VIC OF BQK.  AS EXPECTED CONVECTION HAS BEGUN
TO DEVELOP JUST N OF THE REMNANT CENTER AND EXTENDING ESE ALONG CONFLUENT
LOW LEVEL WIND FIELD.  IR IMAGERY INDICATES THAT THE MOST INTENSE UPDRAFTS
HAVE REMAINED JUST OFFSHORE BUT CONVECTION HAS BEEN TRYING TO BACKBUILD
TOWARDS HXD AND ALSO TOWARDS RECENT CLOUD TOP COOLING NOTED ALONG THE
COAST JUST SE OF SAV.  RATHER WEAK NE LOW LEVEL WIND FIELDS TO THE NE OF
THE CENTER WAS ALLOWING FOR WEAK FLUXES OF INSTABILITY TOWARDS VORTEX
CORE AND WEAK SURFACE COLD POOL ON RECENT MESOANALYSIS WHICH APPEARS
TO BE ROUGHLY COLLOCATED WITH LOW LEVEL VORTEX.  WOULD EXPECT ANY VERY
LOCALIZED HEAVY RAIN THREAT TO BE CONFINED TO COASTAL LOCATIONS OVER THE
NEXT FEW HOURS BEFORE SYSTEM BEGINS TO MOVE FURTHER OFFSHORE.  VERY WEAK
INFLOW INTO SYSTEM, LACK OF DEPTH TO VORTEX AND STEADY E MOVEMENT ARE
MAIN MITIGATING FACTORS AND WOULD SUGGEST THAT THREAT IS VERY LOCALIZED
AND REMAINS FOR THE MOST PART OFFSHORE.
