2016 Atlantic Hurricane Season Ends

Posted: 08:06 PM 30 November 2016 | | Add Comment

The final numbers for the 2016 Atlantic hurricane season is 15 named storms, 7 hurricanes, and 3 major hurricanes.

Notable Storms:
Alex: A preseason January Hurricane that formed near the Azores
Bonnie: A preseason May Tropical storm that landed just east of Charleston as a depression
Colin: A land falling Tropical Storm in Taylor County, FL
Danielle: A Tropical storm that made landfall in Mexico
Earl: A hurricane that impacted Belize as a hurricane, and later Mexico
Hermine: Long track wave (99L) that lasted a very long time before forming into a depression just west of the Florida Keys, this system strengthened and made landfall as a hurricane in Florida near St. Marks in the Panhandle. This broke the 11 year hurricane drought for Florida hurricane landfalls.
Julia: A tropical Storm that formed near Florida and brought a ton of rain to the southeast.
Matthew: A hurricane that obtained Category 5 status in the Caribbean, then cut through the Tiburon peninsula of Haiti causing massive damage there, over the Bahamas and got within 30 miles of the Florida east coast, causing mass evacuations. The system began to weaken over the Bahamas, but managed to cause a lot of flooding along the southeast coast, it made landfall in South Carolina as a category 1 hurricane, and most of the rain shield moved north causing massive flooding in South, and North Carolina as well as parts of Virginia.
Nicole: A hurricane that went over Bermuda
Otto: A late season hurricane that impacted Nicaragua and Costa Rica, a very unusual location,and timing for a hurricane. It also managed to cross into the eastern Pacific intact, maintaining its name as Otto in the eastern Pacific hurricane basin.

For Florida this year was all about Hermine and Matthew. But no major (at the time of landfall) hurricane made landfall in the US this year, which has increased the major hurricane drought to 11 years.

Flhurricane will be back for the 2017 Atlantic Hurricane Season, which I suspect will be the same or more active than this year.

Powerful Hurricane Otto Inland

Posted: 03:50 AM 21 November 2016 | 2 Comments | Add Comment | Newest: 09:35 AM 24-Nov EDT

Update 4:30PM EST 24 November

Certainly not what they needed in Central America, as less than an hour after 110MPH Otto made landfall near the border of the eastern shores of Nicaragua and Costa Rica, a magnitude 7.0 earthquake struck just offshore of their west coasts, complicating everything. There is now an even greater risk of mudslides, rockslides, etc. along and near the path of this very strong hurricane, still estimated to be a powerful Cat 2 as of the 4PM CST NHC Advisory.




Update 1PM EST 24 November

Hurricane Otto has just made landfall near the town of San Juan de Nicaragua on the southern Nicaraguan coast as a top-end Category 2 and borderline Major hurricane today. Hurricane-force winds extend outward up to 15 miles from the center and tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 70 miles. Weakening is now underway as the cyclone traverses mountainous land, but increasing risk of flooding with rainfall of up to 20" in places likely.

Update 11PM EST 22 November

Hurricane Otto continues barley moving in the extreme southwestern Caribbean tonight, but is expected to increase in forward speed tomorrow and make landfall with 48 hours over southern Nicaragua or northern Costa Rica.

The Government of Nicaragua has issued a Hurricane Warning from Bluefields south to the Nicaragua/Costa Rica border. The Government of Costa Rica has issued a Hurricane Warning fro Limon northward to the Nicaragua/Costa Rica border. The Government of Nicaragua has issued a Tropical Storm Warning and a Hurricane Watch north of Bluefields to Sandy Bay Sirpi.

Update 11AM EST 22 November 2016

Otto continues to strengthen and nearly all model runs are trending stronger. These runs are also now south of where they have been and Otto could become the first Costa Rica hurricane landfall on record. Another change with the most recent NHC advisory is that it also now appears that Otto will probably survive across central America into the East Pac, which would be the first time a tropical cyclone has done so since 1996.

There is a chance that Otto strengthens more than forecast, and a high-end Cat 2 or even a Major at landfall is not out of the question. Regardless, Otto is expected to be a very strong hurricane into landfall at a minimum and preparations should be underway in Watch areas to protect life and property.

Quote:

The governments of Nicaragua and Costa Rica have issued a Hurricane Watch from the Costa Rica/Panama border to south of Bluefields Nicaragua.

The weather service of Panama has issued a Tropical Storm Warning for Panama from Nargana to Colon and a Tropical Storm Watch from west of Colon to the Costa Rica/Panama border.

SUMMARY OF WATCHES AND WARNINGS IN EFFECT:

A Hurricane Watch is in effect for...
* Costa Rica/Panama border to south of Bluefields

A Tropical Storm Warning is in effect for...
* Nargana to Colon

A Tropical Storm Watch is in effect for...
* San Andres
* West of Colon to the Costa Rica/Panama border




Update 1PM EST 21 November 2016

SIXTEEN has been upgraded to Tropical Storm Otto with maximum sustained winds estimated to be about 50MPH and a minimum central pressure of 1000mb, which could be conservative. Recon flights scheduled to fly in this afternoon have been canceled.

Interests along and near Otto's forecast path should consider making preparations for a strong tropical cyclone with the potential to produce life-threatening flooding rains.


Above: Nullshchool Visualization of global weather conditions analyzed and forecast by supercomputers

Original Entry
The main circulation center within a persistent area of monsoonal low pressure in the southwestern Caribbean has organized sufficiently to be classified as a tropical cyclone, and advisories have been started on TD16, the sixteenth official tropical cyclone of the historic 2016 Atlantic Hurricane Season.

SIXTEEN is landlocked in the Caribbean and could make landfall as a strong tropical storm or hurricane this week. Prior to being classified, weather associated with its parent circulation had already claimed at least five lives due to flooding, and flooding will likely continue to be a significant threat as this slow moving tropical cyclone dumps copious precipitation near and along its path, possibly adding to the very high death toll from Atlantic basin tropical cyclones this year - 2016 is already the deadliest since the infamous Atlantic hurricane season of 2005.

Late Season Fires up with Invest 90L

Posted: 11:35 AM 15 November 2016 | | Add Comment

9:30 AM EST Update 19 November 2016
The tropical low located in the extreme southwestern Caribbean began tightening and developing organized, persistent, deep convection overnight Friday, and a tropical depression appears to be forming or has formed.


2:30 PM EST Update 18 November 2016
A mixed bag of interacting surface features in the Caribbean and an abundance of shear and dry air in the vicinity is serving to limit 90L's organization potential heading into the weekend. However, the disturbance is worth following closely given its persistence, and no matter what, the slow moving tropical low's proximity to land could lead to flooding rains.



12:00 PM EST Update 16 November 2016
The broad low pressure area in the southwestern Caribbean, Invest 90L, appears to be consolidating today, with weak low and mid-level centers somewhat vertically aligned as can be seen in the image below taken at 1615z. Despite the improved organization, impediments exist and it is not clear if current trends will last, but if this persists then a tropical depression may form by tomorrow night. As of 7AM EST this morning, NHC listed 48-Hour development odds at 30% - and 80% within 5 days.



Original Entry
A broad area of low pressure that has been forming in the southwestern Caribbean is now being tracked as Invest 90L. This disturbance is not well organized yet, with several swirls rotating about and within an unorganized 'center.'

Models and other indicators suggest that 90L could become significantly organized and the formation of a tropical depression appears likely, with the NHC giving it an 80% chance of becoming one within 5 days as of this entry.

The next name on the list is Otto.

99L Heading Towards Nova Scotia

Posted: 09:38 AM 20 October 2016 | 1 Comment | Add Comment | Newest: 12:40 AM 23-Oct EDT

9:30 PM EDT Update 21 October 2016
While NHC official odds of 99L becoming "Otto" have been falling throughout the day, and are now just 20%, the cyclone has actually been intensifying, and most likely has sub-994mb central pressure, with maximum sustained winds of at least 35 knots.

This Low is a truly unusual bird, in that it has been so hybrid, 99L has failed to fit the commonly accepted definition for a subtropical storm. However, it looks as though 99L has been taking on more tropical characteristics today/tonight, and provided it does not shear out, and can stay far enough ahead of the front, may still get a name.

Regardless of named/not-named, this hybrid storm is producing a rather large area of stout winds, some to tropical storm force, with pockets of moderate to heavy showers, and a much larger area scattered to numerous light to moderate rain, while already out at sea and tracking north-northeast.

99L (or possibly Otto) is expected to work with two other weather features this weekend to bring as much as 80mm of rain to parts of Nova Scotia, some in the form of torrential downpours, prompting heavy rain and flood warnings over the weekend there.




2PM EDT Update 20 October 2016
Recon has found that the surface circulation of 99L, which briefly appeared well defined earlier today, has given way to a general state of elongated troffiness with multiple cyclonic swirls, and together with the diminished convection, does not yet meet the definition of a subtropical or tropical cyclone. However, recon is finding some near tropical storm-force winds, and there is still a window for this feature to become Otto before it probably meets up with an approaching front, by Saturday.

Original Entry
Convection has been consolidating about a well-defined surface circulation that exists within a broad and elongated region of lower pressure. This disturbance, tagged as Invest 99L, may become a subtropical or tropical storm later today. The bulk of reliable models and model runs keep this feature offshore of the United States, but it is worth watching.

Recon is scheduled to fly in this afternoon. The next name on the list is Otto.



Elsewhere of interest, a convectively active tropical wave continues plowing west through the Central Atlantic, and a region of persistent lower pressure exits along and either side of Central America.

Nicole and Spawn

Posted: 11:31 AM 11 October 2016 | 2 Comments | Add Comment | Newest: 11:51 PM 12-Oct EDT

5AM EDT Update 17 October 2016



Rare high-latitude Hurricane Nicole is finally expected to undergo extra-tropical transition by mid-week, but not without setting or helping set all kinds of records.

While not approaching land, Nicole is creating large swells over vast portions of the Atlantic. From NHC:
Quote:

HAZARDS AFFECTING LAND
----------------------
SURF: Large swells associated with Nicole will affect Bermuda, the United States east coast, the coast of Atlantic Canada, the Bahamas, the Greater Antilles, and the Leeward Islands for the next several days, creating dangerous surf conditions and rip currents. These swells are also likely to reach Europe and the northwest coast of Africa in a couple of days. Please refer to products being issued by your local weather office for more information.



Elsewhere, a large and persistent area of lower pressure extends from the Caribbean to the Bahamas. Some slow development/s in this region is possible this week, and NHC has highlighted the convection that has been flaring up along Nicole's trailing troff just east of Florida for a 40% chance of becoming a depression or named storm by Friday.
-Ciel


8AM EDT Update 15 October 2016
After only briefly losing tropical characteristics, deep convection has been bursting within the center of Nicole, and the cyclone is undergoing processes that appear to be converting it into a rare mostly tropical hybrid which could actually become a hurricane this weekend, and thus NHC advisories are being continued on Nicole in a way that almost harkens back to a few of the last storms of 2005.
-Ciel



12PM EDT Update 13 October 2016
Major Hurricane Nicole delivered a direct hit on the island nation of Bermuda this morning and is now pulling away to the northeast, with conditions slowly improving. The image below of Bemuda radar shows the small island right inside the eyewall just a little while ago.
-Ciel




9AM EDT Update 13 October 2016
Nicole has weakened back to a category 3, but still a major hurricane, bands are currently affecting the Island and the eye should cross Bermuda in a matter of hours.

11PM EDT Update 12 October 2016
Recon has found that Nicole has strengthened into a very powerful Category 4 Major Hurricane. This could become a historic landfall, as there are no Cat 4 Bermuda landfalls in the NHC record.
-Ciel


7PM Update 12 October 2016
Nicole is nearing Category 3 strength as it nears Bermuda, it has a chance to move very close or just over Bermuda tomorrow. The eye of Bermuda is very well defined on satellite and is likely to be stronger than Hurricane Gonzolo was when it struck the island in 2014.



Those in the area should follow local media/officials and be prepared for a large and dangerous hurricane midday tomorrow.

Original Update
Tropical Storm Nicole has done a bit of a loop but emerged a stronger storm that is forecast to become a hurricane and possibly travel over or very near Bermuda.

Recon is on its way now to check out the storm, it is likely it may find a hurricane once it does.

More to come on Nicole's approach soon.


Many areas are still recovering from Matthew, and flooding continues in North Carolina.

Hurricane Matthew Weather Summary for East Central Florida

Posted: 05:32 PM 16 October 2016
Hurricane Matthew passed just offshore of east-central Florida on the morning of October 7, 2016, as a Category III Major Hurricane with sustained winds of 115mph. The diameter of the eye at 5AM on Friday, October 7th, was 35NM and its location was 28.2N 80.0W or about 36 miles east of Patrick AFB with a movement to the north northwest at 13mph. Matthew moved parallel to the Florida coastline from Fort Pierce to Saint Augustine and then northward thereafter toward the South Carolina coast. Matthew never made landfall in Florida - the closest approach was at 6AM when the western edge of the eyewall brushed Cape Canaveral. Although the Tropical Storm force windfield was large, sustained winds of Hurricane strength only extended 40NM from the center on the western side of the tropical cyclone. Sustained hurricane force winds on land were confined to a small area at South Patrick Shores on the Barrier Island and a small area on the eastern tip of Cape Canaveral. In all other east central Florida coastal locations sustained winds of strong tropical storm force were observed. Storm total rainfall was generally in the 3 to 5 inch range except that some areas in Sanford received up to 9 inches of rain. Storm surge was in the 3 to 5 foot range along the east central Florida coast. During the storm, weather observations were not available from Indialantic, Patrick AFB, Cape Canaveral AFS and Titusville Airport - leaving a critical void in the meteorological record.

A low pressure reading of 28.97" was recorded at Melbourne NWS at 7AM. At 7:30AM I noted a pressure reading of 28.98" at my home in northwest Melbourne. The lowest pressure was located in the southern section of the eye of the hurricane and the central pressure from the Hurricane Hunters was recorded at 938MB (27.90") at 1AM. At 4AM the aircraft reported a circular eye with a diameter of 32NM and a central pressure of 942MB with flight level wind at 118 knots which translates to a 100 knot surface wind (115mph). At 7:17AM the aircraft sent a position fix for the eye at 28.6N 80.2W with a pressure of 942MB and eyewall sustained surface winds of 110 knots. The eye of Matthew had contracted to a circular 20NM diameter as the hurricane passed to the east of the area. Although the radius of the eye had contracted from 17NM to 10NM, the radius of sustained hurricane force winds remained at 40 miles to the west of the center. The central pressure increased and leveled off at 947MB during the day on Friday as Matthew moved NNW. If the eye of Matthew had moved along the shoreline, i.e., if it had been 35-40 miles further to the west, damage would have certainly been greater but no realistic conclusion can be made with regard to the extent of the destruction because an on-shore system would have slowly weakened.

Matthew goes into the record books as a Category I Hurricane in a small section of the Brevard County coast. In some reports from the NHC the flight level Recon wind speeds were not reduced correctly and resulted in stated maximum eyewall surface wind speeds that were about 10mph too high - and I cannot find a valid meteorological reason for doing this. Hurricane Erin in 1995 and Hurricanes Frances and Jeanne in 2004 were all storms with a greater impact on Brevard County. While the early call by the Brevard Emergency Management Operations Center to evacuate residents from the Barrier Islands was prudent, the overstated intensity and inland impacts were mis-leading and confusing to some of our residents. The National Hurricane Center and The Weather Channel both over-hyped the overall magnitude of the storm - which will not help folks to make the correct decision when the next hurricane visits our area. Matthew was not the catastrophic Category IV storm of the century that was touted by some for our area. All hurricanes are dangerous and deserve proper preparation and decision-making. It is worth noting that the area from Melbourne Beach to Titusville has never recorded a Cat III or greater hurricane. Someday that record of 165 years will probably be broken, but Matthew was not that storm. Hurricane David, September 3-4, 1979, was the last Category II Hurricane to hit this area with eye passage along the coast from West Palm Beach to New Smyrna Beach.
