October Arrives in the Tropics
      #94821 - Tue Oct 01 2013 08:53 AM

8:58 AM EDT 2 October 2013 Update
Jerry Continues to be mostly stationary, but movement toward the northeast is still expected in the few days.

The area in the northwest Caribbean will be under some of the best conditions it will have over today and tomorrow, so if it develops, it likely would be tonight or tomorrow. Those along the Central to Northeastern Gulf will want to watch this, but even if it develops, this system likely will be mostly a rain event.

Aircraft recon is scheduled to check out the Caribbean system this afternoon.

Original Update
October has arrived in this relatively quiet year in the Atlantic Tropics. With Tropical Storm Jerry stationary for a while, but expected to move northeast later in the week.

97L in the Western Caribbean has somewhat of a chance to develop later in the week, about 50/50 shot then, but conditions ahead of it don't really support much.

Odds favor this system being sheared apart and bringing rainfall to the northeast Gulf and Florida, still the next day or so will tell if the chances increase for some development before then.

The best chance for development is while it's still in the northwest Caribbean or extreme southern Gulf. Once in the central Gulf, the system likely will weaken when it nears land because of increasing shear.

97L looks much more organized today. Out flow seems to be starting on the northern side. The CDO looks to almost be covering the center of circulation. Most of the models as of this morning keep it weak through landfall, hopefully they are correct.

They have upped the probability on this one to 70% and the models seem to be getting a better handle on it. There is a lot more agreement that it will traverse the central GOM, then get caught up in a trough and swing to the ENE into the panhandle. I would still only give that a moderate probability overall but there is a lot more going today...

Nothing really there right now, but this one has a real shot for development

Recon is finding a rather broad area of low pressure right now, slightly higher winds, but not enough for development right now.

Satellite presentation is beginning to look fairly impressive, though. The models seem to be indicating a TS impacting the northern Gulf Coast in a couple of days.

As of 5:45PM EDT, recon looks very close to being able to close 97L off. In addition to the circulation becoming better defined, the deepest convection has recently been firing right near or even on top of the approximate center of circulation. We could easily have TWELVE or Karen declared tonight. It's almost a lock, IMHO.

If it is declared a TS, then the models will have a definite initialization data point and set, so subsequent runs will be much more reliable. Of course, with a stronger initial intensity, I wonder what the intensity forecasts will become.

We will have a decent idea after the 12Z runs on Thurs on where this might go. Right now it's the panhandle of florida but they are very quick to put 97L 100 miles north of the Yucitan by 15Z on Thurs near 88W almost.. They might be alittle too fast

The last frame of the Visible sat looks like a nice cold tower right over the COC is currently flaring up. I will be surprised if we do not have an upgrade straight to TS at the 8pm.

Satellite presentation continues to improve. Cozumel and Cancun now both reporting a light west wind so the low seems to have closed off.

Asof 0628 EDT, Gulf of Mexico satelitte AVN loop seems to be reflecting a slight enlragement of the system with a slight elongation from north to south. Coldest cloud tops also seems to be blowing off to the northeast. It is too soon to say if there is more of an eastward componenet, but it is worth keeping an eye on.
