Tropical Storm Harvey Forecast Discussion Number 7

2017-08-19 04:33:57| National Hurricane Center (Atlantic)

Issued at 1100 PM AST Fri Aug 18 2017 000 WTNT44 KNHC 190233 TCDAT4 Tropical Storm Harvey Discussion Number 7 NWS National Hurricane Center Miami FL AL092017 1100 PM AST Fri Aug 18 2017 Microwave and conventional geostationary satellite images indicate that Harvey's center is still displaced to the east of a persistent cluster of deep convection due to about 15 kt of northeasterly shear. With no notable changes in the cyclone's structure since the last advisory, the maximum wind estimate remains 35 kt, which is in line with the latest Dvorak CI numbers. Recent microwave fixes suggest that Harvey's center may have slowed down or wobbled northward temporarily, and the 12-hour motion estimate is a slightly slower 275/16 kt. A low- to mid-level ridge extending across the western Atlantic should keep Harvey on a swift westward course across the Caribbean Sea for the next 48 hours. Once Harvey moves into the northwestern Caribbean Sea by 72 hours, it will reach the western edge of the ridge, and it will likely slow down and gain some latitude due to a cut-off low over the northwestern Gulf of Mexico. Although the track guidance envelope has shifted slightly northward on this cycle, especially around the 72-hour period, there are no significant changes from six hours ago. Northeasterly or northerly shear is forecast to continue for the next 36 hours or so, which should prevent significant strengthening while Harvey moves westward across the eastern and central Caribbean Sea. By 48 hours, the vertical shear over the cyclone drops drastically, but the system's fast motion could still limit the amount of intensification that will occur. The best opportunity for strengthening would likely be around day 3 when Harvey begins to slow down as it approaches Belize and the Yucatan Peninsula. The updated NHC intensity forecast is the same as the previous one during the first 48 hours, and it was nudged a little lower at 72 hours to fall closer to the HFIP Corrected Consensus (HCCA) model and the ICON intensity consensus. A lot of uncertainty remains, however, since models like SHIPS and HWRF bring Harvey near or to hurricane intensity before it reaches land while the GFS and ECMWF continue to weaken the circulation while it moves across the Caribbean Sea.

Harvey is moving toward the west near 18 mph (30 km/h). An even faster motion toward the west is expected during the next couple of days. On the forecast track, the center of Harvey will move across the eastern and central Caribbean Sea over the weekend. Maximum sustained winds are near 40 mph (65 km/h) with higher gusts. Slow strengthening is forecast during the next 48 hours. Tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 70 miles (110 km) to the north of the center. The estimated minimum central pressure is 1005 mb (29.68 inches). HAZARDS AFFECTING LAND ---------------------- RAINFALL: Locally heavy rains could occur tonight over portions of the Windward Islands and the offshore islands of northern Venezuela. Locally heavy rains could also occur over Aruba, Bonaire, and Curacao on Saturday. NEXT ADVISORY ------------- Next complete advisory at 500 AM AST. $$ Forecaster Berg

Tropical Storm Kenneth Forecast Discussion Number 3

2017-08-19 04:31:56| National Hurricane Center (East Pacific)

Issued at 800 PM PDT Fri Aug 18 2017 000 WTPZ43 KNHC 190231 TCDEP3 Tropical Storm Kenneth Discussion Number 3 NWS National Hurricane Center Miami FL EP132017 800 PM PDT Fri Aug 18 2017 Conventional satellite imagery and an earlier SSMI/S overpass show that the depression has been strengthening during the past several hours. Impressive outer curved banding has developed in the eastern and northern portions of the cyclone, and the last few visible images are showing early signs of a small central dense overcast, or inner core formation. Based on the overall improvement of the cloud pattern and Dvorak satellite intensity estimates of 35 kt from SAB and TAFB, the depression is upgraded to Tropical Storm Kenneth. The northeasterly shear is diminishing, the oceanic temperatures are warm, and the low to mid levels of the atmosphere are moist, all bolstering further strengthening through the 48-hour period. Afterward, decreasing sea surface temperatures and an intruding stable air mass from the north should result in gradual weakening. No significant changes were made to the previous intensity forecast, and the NHC forecast is based primarily on the IVCN multi-model consensus. The initial motion is estimated to be westward, or 280/13 kt. Kenneth is embedded in the easterly mid-level flow of a subtropical ridge extending over the eastern Pacific from northern Mexico. The cyclone should commence a gradual turn toward the west-northwest around the 24-hour period as a mid- to upper-level low located just southwest of the southern California coast amplifies and erodes the ridge to the northwest of Kenneth. Kenneth's motion is expected to be further influenced by this growing weakness in the ridge by decreasing in forward speed, turning northwestward on day 3, and then north-northwestward around the 96-hour period. The guidance suite is surprisingly tightly clustered through the entire forecast period. The NHC track forecast is similar to the previous one, and is hedged toward the HCCA corrected consensus model.
