Changes [Re: Thunderbird12]
      #62686 - Mon Oct 24 2005 01:56 AM

I have exhausted all of the Vortex fix changes.

Following are the hypothetical landfall locations from those tracks.
First set= Marcos Island

Second set= Homestead

Third set= Estero Bay, S of Ft myers beach.

Combo on the First and Third Set= Marcos Island

**The reason for the combo is those two fixes were run on basically the same Aircraft Heading. It was just an extra set to run out a theory.
I'll run another Combo on the next fix...also.

Now here is the Bad News.
With a 60nm Eye.
If she were to make Landfall at Marcos Island. The Eye would cover the west coast from Florida Bay to Port Charlotte.

If she made Landfall at Estero Bay...the Eye would cover the West Coast from Everglades City to Sarasota,FL

These are hypothetical Landfall Locations based on Wilma's Vortex Fixes and the tracks between them...extrapolated to the West Florida Coast.~danielw

Re: Category 3 Wilma, Strengthening, Moving Rapidly Toward Florida [Re: MikeC]
      #62688 - Mon Oct 24 2005 02:04 AM

Someone, perhaps on the weather channel or maybe Max Mayfield said that the forward speed of the storm is factored in and mostly added to the windspeed. So if the storm was moving at 3mph and is now at 18mph, then that increase of speed should be part of the runnup we saw today from 100 to 115 mph. That might indicated little actual strengthening of the storm itself but an increase in forward speed. However, as often noted the better circulation and drop in pressure also create increased wind speeds. So something doesn't reconcile 100 + 15mph forward speed + greated organization = ?

Also, isn't the storm almost pulling away from Key West?

Here in the Miami area (Coral Gables) there has been very little rain, winds are starting to pick up a bit. From a bit of figuring, I don't think the brunt of the storm will be here. We are a bit far south. Latitude 25.1 Long 82.7 now.

Stay safe

I don't like doing the Hypothetical tracks.

I did one for Katrina and I discovered that Katrina would go ashore where I used to work. And put me in the NE Quadrant.

The tracks are just to narrow it down some.
If you will look at Skeetobyte's Map on the Main page it will help too.

The 2am ET position was listed at 25.1 N, 82.7 W, but that seems to be in error based on the radar and satellite location. That actually seems to be the location of the NE eyewall. Based on the 1am ET, position the new position would imply a movement of greater than 40 mph, so something is off there.

I was watching Brian Norcross and he mentioned that there was some sort of technical issue and NHC is now pulling info from Key West radar, would that have anything to do with it?

A bit off topic.

I thought something had happened to the wind speeds being reported. As the one I was looking at was Way below what it should have been.

It turned out that I was looking at the data from the second Recon plane that had taken off.

They were reporting 71kts winds at a location over Georgia.

More Hypothetical [Re: Tazmanian93]
      #62701 - Mon Oct 24 2005 02:31 AM

Okay using the Last Two Fixes ...I'm still getting a resolution just South of Ft Myers Beach.

Heading of 40.7degrees True. At a 109 nm, roughly.

Distance between last 2 fixes=27.76 nm
Forward speed of 17.9kts or 20.6mph

109nm to go ( HYPOTHETICALLY) would put the EYE (Center of Circulation) ashore in 6 hours.
