    Does anyone here follow the tropics at all? No I don't mean a global warming/global cooling/whatever else debate type thread, but actually follows the storms and all that?

    The reason I ask is A) I couldn't find a thread about this at all and B) There is a Hurricane bearing down on Hawaii (Flossie with 125 MPH winds) and Tropical Depression 4 in the Central Atlantic, which some models have becoming a strong Hurricane.

    This is a 5 day model below and anything past about 48 hours (it's in 6 hour increments) should be taken with a grain of salt:

    HURRICANE DEAN DISCUSSION NUMBER 13
    NWS TPC/NATIONAL HURRICANE CENTER MIAMI FL AL042007
    1100 AM EDT THU AUG 16 2007

    DEAN IS CONTINUING TO INTENSIFY. THE HURRICANE HAS DEVELOPED A SMALL
    CLOUD-FILLED EYE THIS MORNING ON VISIBLE SATELLITE IMAGES AND THE
    CIRRUS OUTFLOW IS EXPANDING IN ALL QUADRANTS. SUBJECTIVE DVORAK
    ESTIMATES FROM TAFB/SAB ARE 77 KT...WHILE OBJECTIVE ESTIMATES ARE
    HIGHER. THE INITIAL INTENSITY IS RAISED TO 80 KT. AN AIR FORCE
    RESERVE HURRICANE HUNTER WILL BE IN THE EYE OF DEAN LATER TODAY TO
    OBTAIN A BETTER ESTIMATE OF THE INTENSITY. WIND AND MAXIMUM SEAS
    DATA FROM NOAA BUOY 41010 WERE CRITICAL FOR THIS ADVISORY.

    THE INITIAL MOTION IS 280/21. THERE IS LITTLE CHANGE TO THE
    PREVIOUS FORECAST REASONING. A STRONG DEEP-LAYERED RIDGE SHOULD
    CONTROL DEAN'S MOVEMENT DURING THE NEXT FEW DAYS. THIS RIDGE SHOULD
    FORCE THE HURRICANE ON A SPEEDY WESTWARD TRACK THROUGH THE CENTRAL
    CARIBBEAN SEA. MODEL GUIDANCE IS IN CLOSE AGREEMENT ON THE TRACK
    THROUGH ABOUT 3 DAYS. THEREAFTER...AS THE HURRICANE APPROACHES THE
    NORTHWESTERN CARIBBEAN SEA...MOST OF THE GUIDANCE SUGGESTS THAT
    DEAN WILL REACH THE WESTERN PERIPHERY OF THE SUBTROPICAL RIDGE AND
    ATTEMPT TO MOVE MORE TO THE WEST-NORTHWEST. GUIDANCE IS IN GOOD
    AGREEMENT ON THIS SCENARIO AS WELL...EXCEPT FOR THE GFDL. IT IS
    STALLING A MIDDLE-LEVEL LOW...CURRENTLY OVER THE BAHAMAS...IN THE
    EASTERN GULF OF MEXICO. THIS SOLUTION ALLOWS THE HURRICANE TO MOVE
    MORE TO THE NORTHWEST INTO THE CENTRAL GULF OF MEXICO. THIS
    SOLUTION IS CONSIDERED AN OUTLIER AT THIS TIME. HOWEVER...THE
    OFFICIAL FORECAST IS NUDGED A LITTLE TO THE NORTH AT 120 HR IN
    DEFERENCE TO THE GFDL FORECAST.

    ALL GLOBAL MODELS ARE DEVELOPING A LARGE 200 MB ANTICYCLONE AROUND
    DEAN DURING THE NEXT FEW DAYS. IN COMBINATION WITH THE DEEP WARM
    WATER OF THE CARIBBEAN SEA...DEAN IS LIKELY TO BECOME A MAJOR
    HURRICANE IN THE EASTERN CARIBBEAN SEA. THE OFFICIAL FORECAST USES
    A BLEND OF THE SHIPS...LGEM...AND GFDL MODELS...WHICH DEVELOP THIS
    SYSTEM INTO AN EXTREMELY DANGEROUS CATEGORY 4 HURRICANE BY THE TIME
    IT REACHES THE NORTHWESTERN CARIBBEAN SEA.

    THE NOAA GULFSTREAM-IV WILL CONDUCT A SYNOPTIC SURVEILLANCE MISSION
    FOR THE 17/00Z NUMERICAL GUIDANCE.

    Last guesstimates are saying it should weaken over the new few days and just miss us to the south. Then again, Iniki back in 1992 did a fricking 90-degree turn north and shot up right between Oahu and Kauai...

    [​IMG]

    That's the path Iniki took incase people were wondering....

    I think there's a pretty decent chance that this storm will jog a bit to the north of that projected path. It depends on how strong it is. If the storm is stronger, the further north it may go, if it is weaker, the further west it will go.

    Buttflossie had better stay west-bound...if it turns northward and makes me go up on the roof and take down the missle-range DirecTV dishes I just had installed Friday, I'm gonna be highly pissed.

    What? Those DirecTV missile range dishes aren't hurricane proof? :tongue2:
  6. Mike80

    Mike80 make it happen

    Good news for Hawaii

    Flossie remains right on the projected path which means the bad part of the storm will pass to the south of the Big Island. It has also weakened to 120 MPH maximum winds.

    TD4 remains a Tropical Depression at 35 MPH winds.

    Check the first post of this thread for an updated model run of one of the main models the National Hurricane Centers use to predict hurricanes.

    Not good for the Florida coast right now but we are still way too far out to say anything for certain.

    I'll try to find animations of other models if I can.

    The NOAA has created the nation's first Tsunami Evacuation Zone Google Maps mashup in the state of Hawaii. Map users can search by specific address or by island area to find out if they are living, working or playing in a tsunami zone. A Google Map will display red shaded areas along the coast to indicate areas where you should evacuate if a tsunami warning is announced. The service is available from the NOAA's Pacific Services Center, State of Hawaii website, and the Pacific Tsunami Warning Center.

    At an elevation of 990+ feet, my house is pretty much out of the tsunami zone. :biggrin:

    AFTER THE CONVECTION WANED THIS AFTERNOON...A NEW BURST HAS
    REDEVELOPED OVER THE CENTER DURING THE PAST FEW HOURS. DESPITE THE
    SOMEWHAT RAGGED SATELLITE APPEARANCE AROUND 2100 UTC...A QUIKSCAT
    PASS AT THAT TIME DETECTED A RATHER WELL DEFINED CIRCULATION WITH
    BELIEVABLE 45-50 KT WINDS. WITH A NOD TO THE SATELLITE
    PRESENTATION...THE INITIAL INTENSITY IS SET AT A POSSIBLY
    CONSERVATIVE 45 KT. RECENT MICROWAVE IMAGERY AND THE QUIKSCAT DATA
    SUGGEST THAT THE CENTER IS SLIGHTLY NORTH OF THE EARLIER ESTIMATES.

    THE INITIAL MOTION IS 270/16...A LITTLE SLOWER THAN THE PREVIOUS
    ADVISORY. THE FORECAST PHILOSOPHY REMAINS UNCHANGED AS DEAN IS
    EXPECTED TO BE STEERED WEST TO WEST-NORTHWESTWARD DURING THE NEXT
    FEW DAYS...SOUTH OF A DEEP-LAYER RIDGE. THE MODEL GUIDANCE
    GENERALLY AGREES ON THIS SCENARIO BUT WITH SOMEWHAT VARYING FORWARD
    SPEEDS. THE OFFICIAL TRACK FORECAST REMAINS FASTER THAN THE NOGAPS
    AND ECMWF SOLUTIONS...WHICH CONTINUE TO STRUGGLE INITIALIZING THE
    FORWARD MOTION OF DEAN. THE NEW TRACK FORECAST IS CLOSER TO THE
    CONSENSUS OF THE GFDL...HWRF AND GFS MODELS THROUGH 72 HOURS...BUT
    IS A LITTLE SLOWER THAN THESE MODELS AT DAYS 4 AND 5.

    IT APPEARS THAT THE EASTERLY SHEAR THAT HAS BEEN AFFECTING DEAN IS
    BEGINNING TO DECREASE. THE GLOBAL MODELS FORECAST A FAVORABLE
    ENVIRONMENT FOR STEADY STRENGTHENING AND THE AVAILABLE INTENSITY
    GUIDANCE BRINGS DEAN TO A HURRICANE IN 36-48 HOURS...AND NEAR THE
    MAJOR HURRICANE THRESHOLD BY DAY 5.

    TROPICAL DEPRESSION FIVE DISCUSSION NUMBER 1

    1100 PM EDT TUE AUG 14 2007

    THE AIR FORCE RECONNAISSANCE AIRCRAFT INVESTIGATING THE AREA OF LOW
    PRESSURE IN THE CENTRAL GULF OF MEXICO DID FIND A SMALL CIRCULATION
    CENTER...BUT IT WAS NOT QUITE WELL-ENOUGH DEFINED TO WARRANT A
    FORMAL VORTEX MESSAGE. SINCE THAT TIME...THE SYSTEM HAS BEEN
    MAINTAINING DEEP CONVECTION TO THE NORTHEAST OF THE CENTER...WITH
    SOME EXPANSION OF THE CONVECTION SOUTHWESTWARD. BASED ON THIS
    TREND...I AM PRESUMING THE CENTER HAS BECOME A LITTLE BETTER
    DEFINED AND ADVISORIES ARE INITIATED ON TROPICAL DEPRESSION FIVE.

    THE INITIAL MOTION ESTIMATE IS 305/7. THE DEPRESSION IS SOUTH OF A
    MID-LEVEL HIGH CENTERED OVER THE SOUTHERN PLAINS. MODEL GUIDANCE
    RESPONDS TO THIS SYNOPTIC PATTERN WITH A FAIRLY STRAIGHT WEST-
    NORTHWESTWARD TRACK. THERE IS CURRENTLY SOME SOUTHERLY SHEAR OVER
    THE CYCLONE...AND GIVEN THE STRONG CONVECTIVE ASYMMETRY...I EXPECT
    SOME REFORMATION OR APPARENT NORTHWARD COMPONENT OF MOTION OVER THE
    NEXT 12-24 HOURS UNTIL THE CENTER BECOMES A LITTLE BETTER DEFINED.
    CONSEQUENTLY...THE OFFICIAL FORECAST IS A LITTLE SLOWER THAN AND TO
    THE RIGHT OF THE OBJECTIVE GUIDANCE...ESPECIALLY EARLY IN THE
    FORECAST.

    UPPER-LEVEL WINDS ARE STILL NOT FAVORABLE FOR RAPID DEVELOPMENT...
    BUT LARGE-SCALE MODELS INDICATE THAT THE PRESENT SHEARING PATTERN
    WILL BE REPLACED BY A MORE FAVORABLE FLOW OVER THE NEXT DAY OR SO
    AS THE UPPER-LEVEL LOW OVER SOUTH TEXAS MOVES RAPIDLY OUT OF THE
    WAY. THE BROAD CIRCULATION...LIMITED CONVECTION...AND LIMITED
    UPPER-OCEANIC HEAT CONTENT ALONG THE PROJECTED PATH ARGUE FOR ONLY
    MODEST STRENGTHENING. THE OFFICIAL INTENSITY FORECAST IS IN GOOD
    AGREEMENT WITH THE SHIPS AND GFDL GUIDANCE.
