Omar getting better organized:

SATELLITE AND RADAR DATA INDICATE THE DEPRESSION HAS CONTINUED TO BECOME BETTER ORGANIZED AND CLOUD TOPS HAVE COOLED SIGNIFICANTLY WITH SOME TOPS TO -86C NEAR THE CENTER. OUTFLOW HAS ALSO IMPROVED IN ALL QUADRANTS AND IS LESS RESTRICTED TO THE NORTHWEST NOW. THE INITIAL ADVISORY OF 35 KT IS BASED ON A CONSENSUS T2.5/35 KT SATELLITE ESTIMATE FROM TAFB AND SAB FOR THE PAST 12 HOURS...PLUS SEVERAL BELIEVABLE 30-34 KT QUIKSCAT WIND VECTORS NOTED IN THE NORTHWEST QUADRANT AROUND 1036Z THIS MORNING. THUS...TROPICAL DEPRESSION FIFTEEN HAS BEEN UPGRADED TO TROPICAL STORM OMAR.
