Re: Ida Near Hurricane Strength Again Moving Northward [Re: Marvin]

Hi, no offense, but that's clearly a directional oximoron right there. How on God's green earth would an exloding system like Ida right now, be moving towards the west, instead of moving towards the east, like history this time of the year WOULD CLEARLY dictate. Cheers, .

Have to say good Job to the NHC for being on top of things... u can tell there watching the AF recon data and the buoy data... They have issued a few special adv. this morning before the main adv. pkg comes out... they adjusted the short-term path in a 115am adv...

THIS SPECIAL ADVISORY IS BEING ISSUED TO ADJUST THE SHORT-TERM
INTENSITY AND TRACK FORECAST OF IDA. BASED ON THE OBSERVED
INTENSIFICATION OF THE SYSTEM IN THE LAST FEW HOURS...THE INTENSITY
FORECAST IS RAISED TO 85 KT AT 12 AND 24 HOURS...WITH THE
POSSIBILITY THAT IDA COULD GET A LITTLE STRONGER THAN THAT SOMETIME
TODAY. BEYOND 36 HOURS...THE INTENSITY FORECAST IS UNCHANGED FROM
THE PREVIOUS ADVISORY.

      #87210 - Sun Nov 08 2009 06:21 AM

Good morning, constant storm-time lurker here with my first post in several years. Usually I find answers to my questions in the forum, but I'm surprised no one has mentioned Hurricane Kate. I lived in Tallahassee in November '85 and so would be interested in more about why the extra-tropical transition forecast. As an amateur in both tropical meteorology and weather history, I am guessing there are three factors in the forecast for Ida as distinguished from Kate: (1) Kate was a major hurricane that entered the Gulf from the east rather than from the south; (2) SST's were a little warmer in the northern Gulf in '85 than today; and (3) there was no front pushing down into the Gulf to disrupt the system, as the Ida forecast apparently contemplates. According to what I looked at this morning, Kate did not become extra-tropical until about the time it was approaching Georgia and knocking down most of the trees in Tallahassee while passing about 30 miles northwest of my house. Anyone else have any thoughts about why Ida would not follow Kate's example?

Excellent discussion here this morning, thank you!

Did she move west or was she really relocated?

Think everything beyond the next 24 hours is guessing, educated or otherwise. Hard storm to forecast.

Also, energy in the western gulf of mexico may be throwing a fly into the ointment

http://weather.unisys.com/satellite/sat_wv_east_loop-12.html

I had spent so much time watching the digging high in the atlantic and what was upstream to the north and nw that i really didn't notice how consolidated the western GOM had gotten and how if possible that area could reinforce some sort of sub tropical jet running energy out ahead of the front moving down.

November storms are ripe with possibilities...


Great image of her center off the tip of the Yucatan, thanks..
