Invest 93L Organizing Impressively Tonight

Posted: 02:25 AM 28 July 2014 | 2 Comments | Add Comment | Newest: 09:47 AM 30-Jul EDT

9:15 PM EDT 28 July 2014 Update


While the last update from NHC was merely an hour ago, giving 93L a 50% chance of development within the next 48 hours (and 70% within 5 days), the system has quickly become better organized throughout the late afternoon and evening, and now tonight it appears that a Tropical Depression could already be forming.

A very timely Scatterometer pass from about 7:42 PM EDT clearly shows that while still on the mild side, surface winds were closing off directly underneath a coalescing sphere of deep convection, a tell-tale sign of tropical cyclogenesis.

Original Entry



After a fairly quiet couple of weeks in the Atlantic, things may be about to change.

The modest tropical wave that rolled off the coast of Africa a few days ago and that has been gradually picking up some steam has become sufficiently organized to be given an Invest tag for tracking: 93L.

As of 2AM EDT July 28, Invest 93L was located roughly 550 miles southwest of the Cape Verde Islands in the central Atlantic, moving west around 10-15MPH.

93L is in a favorable environment for further organization, and it looks probable that it will become a numbered tropical cyclone within the next few days, with movement expected to the west or west-northwest.

Tropical Depression Two Weakens to an Open Wave

Posted: 10:23 AM 21 July 2014 | 1 Comment | Add Comment | Newest: 04:29 PM 21-Jul EDT

1:00 PM 23 July 2014 Update

Tropical Depression two has degenerated into only a weak swirl remaining with no deep
convection, and not is just remnants of its former self. Chances of regenerating are extremely low.

4:35 PM 21 July 2014 Update

Tropical Depression Two has formed in the central Atlantic from 92L, which just began being tracked this morning. This is a small system that may increase/decrease in strength relatively quickly. It is currently forecast to weaken as it enters more hostile conditions.

Those in the eastern Caribbean will want to watch, however. But odds favor this being a short lived system.

2:30 PM 21 July 2014 Update
Chances have jumped up to 70%, as the storm is well presented in the Central Atlantic. The Navy has issued a Tropical Cyclone Formation Alert for this system, so it could possibly be upgraded to a depression at 5PM.


Original Update
After most of July being quiet after Arthur, a system that is now in the Central Atlantic, and being tracked as 92L, is now in a position to develop, and is looking quite well this morning for the system. If the current look persists today, chances for development could go way up from the current 20%.

Based on current movement and low level models, those in the Eastern Caribbean will want to watch to see what happens over the next few days.

There will be more to come on this system later today.

Category 2 Hurricane Arthur Makes Landfall and History Along the Outer Banks

Posted: 05:40 PM 02 July 2014 | 20 Comments | Add Comment | Newest: 12:51 AM 06-Jul EDT

11:40 PM Update July 3, 2014
Hurricane Arthur has made landfall around 11:15PM between Cape Lookout and Beaufort, N.C. Arthur becomes the first Cat 2 Hurricane to officially make landfall along the U.S. since 2008 (Ike), and the earliest hurricane to make landfall along North Carolina in recorded history.

About an hour before landfall, NOAA Station CLKN7, located at Cape Lookout, recorded sustained winds of up to 77MPH, with ferocious gusts to 101.

Arthur remains a very dangerous and potentially deadly hurricane as it traverses the outer banks and rides the Gulf Stream up to the northeast. All interests further up and off the east coast up to and through Nova Scotia, Canada should be prepared for deteriorating conditions to come.
Ciel


9:00 PM Update 3 July 2014
Hurricane Arthur reached Category 2 strength, and is currently heading toward Beaufort/Morehead City, NC, and forecast to go out over the Outer Banks,



See media and webcam links below for more info.

11:00 AM Update 3 July 2014
Hurricane Arthur continues to strengthen this morning, and now has 90mph winds. Even more recent recon reports have shown pressure to have dropped to 977mb, so a Category 2 storm is likely when it nears the Outer Banks. Do not focus on the immediate track effects will be seen out from the center, particularly on the northeast side. And surge potential is increased.

Those in the path and watch/warning area please keep tabs with local officials and media.


6:30 AM Update 3 July 2014
Arthur was upgraded to a category 1 hurricane this morning, with winds of 75mp. Moving north to north northeast at 9. miles in hour. The forecast track takes it closest to the Outer Banks over or just east of Cape Hatteras overnight tonight. The hurricane warning was also extended northward to the NC/Virginia Border.

There is some evidence that Arthur could go slightly west of the forecast track also, so anyone in the cone should prepare.

Any deviation to the left would bring hurricane conditions to more parts of the outer banks.

The only mandatory evacuation, at this time, is for Hatteras Island.

At 6AM this morning the center of the Hurricane is nearly due east of Savannah, Georgia, and slowly accelerating more to the north. Heavy rain bands are affecting South Carolina currently.

It is possible Arthur strengthens during the day today, tonight it likely begins to hit more shear which could weaken it, this morning radar presentation is improving.



Those in the warning areas should already be prepared, and listen to local media/officials regarding any possible changes.

Original Update
Tropical Storm Arthur has gained strength today, and is very near hurricane status, and could become a hurricane later tonight. In fact the latest recon reports suggest it could possibly be upgraded sooner rather than later.

The official track was shifted slightly to the west, bringing it close enough to the North Carolina coastline to raise Hurricane Warnings for the coast of North Carolina. Hurricane warnings are now up from Surf City, NC northward to Duck, NC. and includes the Pamlico and eastern Albermarle sounds. Timing would place it nearest to North Carolina overnight Thursday into Friday as a hurricane.

Forecast models, now using NOAA Gulfstream IV data, have shifted a bit west tonight, so tonight it is looking a bit worse for the coast of North Carolina. (See the forecast lounge for model discussion)



Unfortunately, If you had plans to travel to that area for the holiday, please make other plans and listed to local officials and media regarding for evacuations or other recommendations.

Be especially aware of sound side storm surge, check out the NHC's new storm surge inundation map for a general idea of how conditions may be in the Carolinas.

More to come as needed.

Tropical Storm Arthur Strengthening East of Florida

Posted: 11:13 PM 30 June 2014 | 11 Comments | Add Comment | Newest: 05:11 AM 02-Jul EDT

6AM 2 July 2014 Update
Arthur has begun a more northerly motion overnight, and has strengthened a bit to a 60mph tropical storm.

The official forecast takes it close to the coasts of South and North Carolina, so new watches have been issued, ad the tropical storm watch for Florida was dropped south of Sebastian (But remains north of Sebastian to Flagler)

The new tropical storm watches are from the s. Santee River in South Carolina to Bogue inlet in North Carolina.

A Hurricane Watch is up for Bogue Inlet North Carolina to Oregon Inlet in North Carolina.

Another Tropical storm watch goes from Oregon Inlet to the Virginia Border.



Arthur still is rather dry on the west side, which means it won't be felt much here in Florida except for right along the east coast, it should move away from Florida later today. Arthur likely will hold around the current strength today.

The official track is going to be a very close call for the Outer Banks of NC in the hurricane watch area, which would have its closest approach on July 4th.

1AM 2 July 2014 Update
About two hours ago at 02/03Z Arthur developed an eye. This suggests that Arthur may have become a small compact hurricane but on rare occasions a strong tropical storm can develop an eye. Recon is currently enroute to examine the cyclone. Movement is now to the northwest at about 7 knots.
ED


10:30PM EDIT 1 July 2014 Update

Arthur's convection is mostly on the south and east tonight, but it is beginning to fill out on the north It looks like the NHC track is very good. The strong band coming in from Florida is a unique part of the satellite image right now.



It still has dry areas on parts of the north and west.

6:30PM EDIT 1 July 2014 Update

Tropical Storm Arthur continues to be quasi stationary east of Florida about 85 miles ESE of Cape Canaveral. Recent recon reports has found it to be stronger, and the center a bit south of the 5PM position. No changes with the tropical storm watches, but those in the Cone ahead of Arthur may want to watch it closely, especially with the current strengthening trend.




6:45AM EDIT 1 July 2014 Update
The second month of the Atlantic Hurricane season begins will a slow moving tropical depression east of Florida, about 95 miles off the coast from Cape Canaveral.

This system is forecast to stay offshore of Florida, but it will be breezy along the coast, with some rain bands coming in over the next day or two. The moisture is lacking in the northern part of the system, so until the storm wraps around more the rain will likely be only in short bursts over the peninsula. News is relatively good for Florida impacts, other than poor beach/marine conditions along the east coast. The northwestern Bahama islands are getting the heaviest of rains today.

There is a slight risk for smaller, short-lived tornadoes from the bands if the heavier rain manages to wrap around later.



Strength wise it's held the same overnight, but likely will become Tropical Storm Arthur later today. The official forecast takes it to Hurricane strength in 72 hours, when it nears the coastal area of North Carolina. Which could mean that hurricane watches may be up along the southeast coast of North Carolina July 3rd/4th around the Independence holiday, although anyone in the cone should keep very up to date with the system over the next few days. It may pass by closest to NC overnight Thursday into Friday, as once it gets picked up, it's likely to move out quickly.

The system is a relative small storm, so the worst impacts will only be felt very close to the center, and if manages to stay just east of the coast passing toward North Carolina, it won't be bad. That's a big if, since there is still some uncertainty in the short term movement, but anyone in the cone needs to pay attention to it regardless.

There may be a point, likely tomorrow or Thursday, where the storm strengthens somewhat rapidly, so be aware, especially those along the coast in South and North Carolina. It should move out to sea after that.

Original Update
The system being tracked had a impressive burst of convection late tonight that was enough to seal the deal to becoming the first tracked tropical system of the year in the Atlantic, Tropical Depression One.

Tropical Storm watches are up along the east coast of Florida from Ft. Pierce north to Flagler Beach.

The official forecast keeps much of the southeast coast and east coast of Florida in the Cone, but the main track is mostly east.

Watching Area East of Melbourne (91L)

Posted: 08:53 AM 28 June 2014 | 10 Comments | Add Comment | Newest: 06:41 PM 30-Jun EDT

5:00 AM EDT Update 30 June 2014
The area east of Florida has lost much of the convection overnight so near term development (Today) seems less likely. If the circulation persists, later tomorrow or Wednesday are better possibilities. The continued southern movement along with shear is making it difficult for the convection to hang on.

Some rainfall from bands of this system will be seen today, particularly extreme coastal Brevard county south to Palm Beach County. Beach conditions may be poor in these areas, and locally heavy rainfall from these bands will probably last through mid-late this week, some of them may reach inland. Although not guaranteed, the center is expected to remain just offshore of Florida, however. This system remains something to watch over the next few days.



Let us know conditions related to this system in your area, in this Storm Forum post.


1:30 PM EDT Update 29 June 2014

The system off the southeast coast (91L - ~230 miles east of St. Augustine) is looking better structurally today, but still lacks circulation. The recon mission scheduled for today was cancelled, but there is another scheduled for tomorrow morning, if needed.


(Image from NWS Melbourne)

Along with the lack of circulation, there is dry air nearby, and general pressures are still relatively high.
So no tropical development today, it seems, but tomorrow and especially late Tuesday, if it develops, may be more likely.

Chances as of this afternoon are 60% for development in the next 48 hours, and 80% in the next 5 days. Even if it does not strengthen much, it will at the very least have impact on a lot of beaches for rip-currents and the like during the July 4th weekend.



Original Update

And area that has been over South Carolina the past few days has persisted and now is over open waters of the Atlantic, and has fairly good conditions around it for development.

It just was designated as invest 91L, so more to come soon.

The National Hurricane Center gives it a 30% chance for development in the next 48 hours, and 50% in the next 5 days, based on satellite appearance this morning, those chances may be a bit low.

The system is generally moving southeast away from land and has windspeeds around 25MPH, it's likely to remain offshore for a while.

Forecasting models have not really picked up on this system yet. But generally those along the east coast,of Florida, coastal Georgia, and the Carolinas will want to watch the progress of this system.

Aircraft recon is tentatively scheduled to fly out there tomorrow afternoon, if needed.

Hurricane Arthur

Posted: 05:50 PM 03 July 2014
Kudos to The Weather Channel for deviating from the 'official' forecast earlier this afternoon. At 5PM EDT on July 3rd, NHC made an adjustment westward with the forecast track for Hurricane Arthur - and the actual track is probably going to be slightly west of that.

An upper level low located near 39N 58W at 03/21Z continues to retrograde westward. High pressure is centered south of the Great Lakes behind a cool front moving eastward through the Appalachian Range. Hurricane Arthur continues to maintain more of a north northeast movement and I would anticipate a track adjustment on a course a little more to the west with Arthur moving over eastern North Carolina just to the west of the Outer Banks as a Cat II Hurricane Thursday night into the early hours of Friday morning. As the front approaches the east coast, Arthur will be nudged into more of a northeast movement with the center passing just to the southeast of Cape Cod around midnight Friday night as a minimal Cat I hurricane undergoing extratropical transition.

Hurricane conditions likely over eastern North Carolina within 25 miles of the center track in the southwest and northwest quadrants and within 75 miles of the track in the northeast and southeast quadrants. Any hurricane preparations by those who are in or near the path of the hurricane should have already been completed. A fully transitioned strong Extratropical storm should pass over Nova Scotia on Saturday and over Newfoundland on Sunday.
