Tropical Depression Joyce Forecast Discussion Number 21

2018-09-17 22:36:30| National Hurricane Center (Atlantic)

Issued at 500 PM AST Mon Sep 17 2018 810 WTNT45 KNHC 172036 TCDAT5 Tropical Depression Joyce Discussion Number 21 NWS National Hurricane Center Miami FL AL102018 Issued by the NWS Weather Prediction Center College Park MD 500 PM AST Mon Sep 17 2018 Tropical Depression Joyce has proven to be resilient. Visible satellite imagery over the eastern Atlantic today showed a fairly prolonged burst of deep convection near and just east of the center. In the grand scheme of things, the circulation of Joyce is still relatively dry and free of thunderstorms, but this batch of convection causes us to maintain a 30-knot intensity at advisory time. Joyce had turned decidedly to the southeast since 15Z, and this fits in with the model guidance - all of which showed a very strong track consensus that curves the system down away from the westerlies, with the track eventually turning toward the southwest, suppressed by a developing flat ridge around 35 degrees north. Over time, this track will put Joyce in an environment characterized by less shear, but also marginal sea surface temperatures and very dry mid-level air. This should cause deep convection to diminish, and gradually reduce Joyce's winds and structure to a post-tropical low - noting that all the global models lose definition on this system just after 72 hours. The lastest official track is near the consensus of the tightly clustered guidance, and represents no significant change since the previous advisory.

Atlantic Tropical Weather Outlook

2018-09-17 20:29:55| National Hurricane Center (Atlantic)

ABNT20 KNHC 171812 RRA TWOAT Tropical Weather Outlook NWS National Hurricane Center Miami FL 200 PM EDT Mon Sep 17 2018 For the North Atlantic...Caribbean Sea and the Gulf of Mexico: The National Hurricane Center is issuing advisories on Tropical Depression Joyce, located a few hundred miles south-southwest of the Azores. The NOAA Weather Prediction Center is issuing advisories on Tropical Depression Florence, located inland over the Appalachian mountains. Disorganized showers and thunderstorms extending from just west of Jamaica to eastern Cuba and Hispaniola are associated with the remnants of Isaac. Environmental conditions are expected to remain unfavorable for re-development while the system moves westward to west-northwestward across the northwestern Caribbean Sea. Even though development is unlikely, locally heavy rains and gusty winds are possible over portions of Hispaniola, Jamaica, and eastern Cuba during the next couple of days. * Formation chance through 48 hours...low...10 percent. * Formation chance through 5 days...low...10 percent. $$ Forecaster Cangialosi/Latto

Eastern North Pacific Tropical Weather Outlook

2018-09-17 19:57:22| National Hurricane Center (East Pacific)

236 ABPZ20 KNHC 171757 TWOEP Tropical Weather Outlook NWS National Hurricane Center Miami FL Issued by the NWS Weather Prediction Center College Park MD 1100 AM PDT Mon Sep 17 2018 For the eastern North Pacific...east of 140 degrees west longitude: An elongated area of low pressure was located about 250 miles south of the southern tip of Baja California, producing disorganized clusters of showers and thunderstorms. Environmental conditions appear conducive for tropical cyclone formation, although the broad nature of the system and potential interaction with land as it moves northward may hamper development. This system could become a tropical depression on Wednesday or Thursday as it approaches Baja California Sur. Regardless of development, this system will likely produce very heavy rainfall over Baja California Sur and other parts of northwestern Mexico later this week. * Formation chance through 48 hours...medium...40 percent. * Formation chance through 5 days...medium...60 percent. $$ Forecast Burke/Blake
