Tropical Depression 3 Dissipates in late July

Posted: 09:30 AM 21 July 2019 | 3 Comments | Add Comment | Newest: 03:02 PM 22-Jul EDT

11 AM EDT 23 July 2019 Update
TD#3 has dissipated after recon found it falling apart.

There is an area in the Gulf with a 20% chance for development later in the week.

9:30 PM EDT 22 July 2019 Update
Tropical Depression 3 formed, and quickly lost convection after being upgraded. Although overnight it may regain some.

This is expected to remain offshore of Florida, and outside of right along the beach, should not be really noticeable to Florida.

Original Update
The National Hurricane Center is mentioning a new area east of the Bahamas in the Outlook, with a 20% chance of development. This area, being designated Invest 94L, has no model support yet, but there is enough vorticity to make it worth watching.

If this were late August or September it probably be much more concerning. It's been mostly surrounded by dry air, but is gaining some moisture, but will likely remain squelched by dry air for the next few days. It's fighting a front coming up as well, so the chances for anything happening are quite low. But because of the location it's now designated 94L.

No real model support, but the chance for a small system ramping up is still there. Since it's near Bahamas and Florida it has our attention.

See The forecast lounge. for more speculation.

July 22nd 5PM EDT update - The NHC decided to classify the system in the Bahamas as Tropical Depression 3. Not much is expected from the system as it moves north for the next couple of days until it's likely absorbed by a frontal boundary.

However, interests along the Florida, Georgia, and Carolina coast should keep an eye on the system.

Hurricane Barry forms in Gulf of Mexico

Posted: 10:53 AM 10 July 2019 | 26 Comments | Add Comment | Newest: 09:02 AM 13-Jul EDT

10:00 AM CDT 13 July 2019 Update
Hurricane Barry forms in the Gulf just as it makes landfall in the Central Louisiana coastline. Despite being very lopsided to the south and southeast, Buoy, Aircraft, Rig reports have found Barry has reached hurricane strength. Rainfall once the southern portion arrives will be the largest threat, those north and west of the center will likely hardly notice anything.

However the southern section does extend fairly far west, so Tropical storm warnings have been extended westward to Sabine Pass.


6:30 PM CDT 12 July 2019 Update
Barry's structure has improved throughout the day Friday, with progressively stronger surface winds the closer one is to the very center. In addition, upper-level outflow has improved in all quadrants, and most importantly so, in the northern half of the cyclone. Barry is now a fully tropical Tropical Cyclone and by all accounts, likely maturing into a hurricane before landfall.

While not expected, Barry, likely to be a full-fledged and not fledgling, dangerous TC before landfall, could strengthen even more than forecast with so much of it over anomalously warm Gulf waters. With high-end tropical storm to full hurricane-force gusts likely to push inland, given all the rain on the way, trees will fall. Easily. Wind-related injuries and fatalities are often from falling trees and branches.

The greatest threat by far is coming in the way of life-threatening, flooding rain that could continue for an extended duration. Anyone who has remained in areas prone to flooding should be rushing to completion efforts to protect life and property, if not evacuating if so advised by local authorities. Flooding in this event may exceed all previous records in several places.

...THERE IS A HIGH RISK OF EXCESSIVE RAINFALL SATURDAY AND SATURDAY NIGHT OVER EASTERN LOUISIANA AND FAR SOUTHWEST MISSISSIPPI. THIS INCLUDES THE CITIES OF NEW ORLEANS AND BATON ROUGE...

...Central Gulf Coast and Lower Mississippi Valley...
Extreme rainfall will likely lead to significant and life-threatening flash flooding from coastal LA into southwestern MS and the LA/MS border from Saturday into Sunday.

10:30 AM CDT 12 July 2019 Update
Barry is doing a run on strengthening today, but it still a fairly sloppy system, although the primary center is not expected to make landfall until tomorrow morning, a strong are of convection currently on south side of the center likely will rotate around and up over the Louisiana coastline and near New Orleans, likely late afternoon or evening. This will bring heavy rain and surge into the areas. Lake Pontchartrain is now under a storm Surge Warning.

10 AM CDT 11 July 2019 Update
Tropical Storm Barry has formed


6 AM CDT 11 July 2019 Update

Recon failed to find enough orgnaiztion to upgrade the system overnight, but it still remains close to becoming a tropical depression or storm this morning. The track was adjusted slightly in central Louisiana bringing more eastern side rains potentially to New Orleans.

The recon flying right now is finding lower pressures (1003 mb) and a bit more organizatio9n which implies an upgrade may happen sooner than later.

This system is mostly going to be a rain maker, although a hurricane at landfall is still forecast by late tomorrow or Saturday morning. Because the system has not properly formed there is still a great deal o9f uncertainty in he official forecast

Those in the watch area should pay attention to local media and officials for informatio9n specific to their area.

8:30PM CDT July 10, 2019 Update
PTC TWO looks to have completed Tropical Cyclogenesis, or is right on the cusp of doing so, and may easily be a named, and fully tropical, storm, Thursday. This is a particularly dangerous situation, with the risk of extreme inland flooding high. Barry may even cause overtopping Saturday of the Mississippi river levee in the Lower 9th Ward, Algiers and St. Bernard Parish. Even though 92L/proto-Barry is "not (yet) named," preparations along its path to protect life and property should now be underway. Time is limited, and at some point evacuation routes, hotels, shelters, stores and such may be completely inaccessible.

Further discussion and speculation for potential impacts and future track of proto-Barry can be found in the TWO/Barry Forecast Lounge.

Original Post
Potential Tropical Storm 2 Advisory issued, Hurricane forecast for Louisiana Saturday midday.

The idea of potential advisories is to allow for official watches and warnings even before a storm has properly formed if it will impact land areas.

Flooding rainfall has already occurred in New Orleans and more is on the way to potentially the worst flooding there since 1927. More to come soon.

A Storm Surge Watch has been issued from the Mouth of the Pearl River to Morgan City, Louisiana.

A Tropical Storm Watch has been issued from the Mouth of the Mississippi River to Morgan City, Louisiana.



HAZARDS AFFECTING LAND
----------------------
STORM SURGE: The combination of a dangerous storm surge and the tide will cause normally dry areas near the coast to be flooded by rising waters moving inland from the shoreline. The water could reach the following heights above ground somewhere in the indicated areas if the peak surge occurs at the time of high tide...

Mouth of the Pearl River to Morgan City...3 to 5 ft

Surge-related flooding depends on the relative timing of the surge and the tidal cycle, and can vary greatly over short distances. For information specific to your area, please see products issued by your local National Weather Service forecast office.

RAINFALL: The system is expected to produce total rain accumulations of 6 to 12 inches near and inland of the central Gulf Coast through early next week, with isolated maximum rainfall amounts of 18 inches.

WIND: Tropical storm conditions are possible within the watch area by late Thursday or early Friday.

92L Nearing the Gulf

Posted: 08:07 PM 07 July 2019 | 5 Comments | Add Comment | Newest: 10:36 AM 10-Jul EDT

b]10:00 AM EDT 10 July 2019 Update

The NHC will initiate advisories on Potential Tropical Cyclone Two at 10 am CDT. (11am EDT) Watches Likely for Louisiana which is already receiving flooding rainfall this morning (New Orleans got 6-10 inches this
morning)
.

8:30 AM EDT 10 July 2019 Update

92L is now getting organized in the Gulf of Mexico as can be seen on satellite imagery. There still is a 90% chance for development over the next 48 hours. It could form as early as tonight (Recon scheduled for this afternoon would likely make that determination), but more likely sometime tomorrow.

It is very likely that Hurricane, Tropical Storm, and Storm Surges Watches/Warnings will be issued later today.

The models range from Louisiana to Northeast Texas, and vary in strength. Typically points at and to the right of the center of the storm see the worst of the weather and surge. In any case large amounts of flooding rainfall are expected, and this system still could strengthen into a hurricane. Upper level conditions around 92L are good for development, so it looks like things will start popping later today.


8:30 AM EDT 9 July 2019 Update
The 92L system, now over the Florida Panhandle and likely to move over water later today, still has an 80% chance for development over the next 5 days and 50% development over the next 48 hours.

Today will bring rain to some areas along the Florida coast, but any real organization (if any) is not likely until Thursday.

The National Hurricane Center may begin Potential Tropical Cyclone advisories as early as this evening depending on how the storm progresses. Regardless of how much the storm forms, there will be heavy rain along the northern and northeastern Gulf coasts.

There still remains potential for a strong tropical storm or hurricane to develop, so those in Louisiana in particular along with just east and west of there should continue to watch this system closely. Especially as Friday and Saturday arrive. It is also important to note there is still a chance this does not form at all.

9:30 AM EDT 8 July 2019 Update
The Georgia system is now being tracked as invest 92L. Model/forecast/speculation can be found in the Forecast Lounge.

5AM EDT 8 July 2019 Update
The frontal boundary disturbance currently over western Georgia now has an 80% chance to develop this week. Based on the current models its not likely to emerge into the Gulf until tomorrow night, but once there is enough of favorable environment for something tropical to form in the Gulf Thursday or Friday, and most likely drift westward during this time.

The system is most likely just a rain maker, but if it manages to stay in the gulf long enough it could form into a strong tropical storm or hurricane. Those in the Gulf, particularly from NE Texas and Louisiana should be watching this one closely for this coming weekend.

Those further east and west should also continue to monitor It's likely not to have any official tropical advisories issued until the system is almost or has formed. So watch the hurricane center's outlooks closely.

Original Update
An interesting combination of a frontal system and a mid-level disturbance,currently over extreme northwestern Georgia along with very warm Gulf waters makes for an interesting mid to late week when the system moves out over the Gulf and upper level conditions turn favorable for development.

There it may have favorable enough conditions to form, in fact most of the models suggest it. Therefore the NHC has increased development chances to 60% over the next 5 days. Depending on how far south and west the system drifts, the more inclined it can form. Therefore those along the northern Gulf coast, from Western Louisiana/NE Texas Coast all the way to the Florida Panhandle should watch this one closely over the next few days. And those further east and west. will want to follow.

This area is not currently tagged as an invest, and it is currently over land. However, the spin is evident on radar currently at the point of convergence. If this moves south over water it won't take much for it to start forming. One thing to watch in the short term is how far south vs east this system gets. Even if it does develop, it isn't likely to gain too much strength and primarily be a rain maker. However the heat content and proximity to land still requires attention in case it does linger over water longer than anticipated.

The 2019 Atlantic Hurricane Season Begins

Posted: 10:34 PM 31 May 2019 | | Add Comment

Update 10:30 AM ET June 4, 2019
A Tropical Low we have been following, Invest 91L, continues flirting with becoming a TD, but as of yet the basin looks very much early season. This feature has probably just 24-48 hours more to come together should it do so, depending on how much time it has left over water. Weaker = more likely to come ashore closer to Mexico/Texas. Stronger = more likely to come ashore Texas/Louisiana. Regardless of development, it will be a prolific rain-maker along its path. Showers and storms, some possibly heavy.

Update 1:30 PM ET June 2, 2019
Today's recon mission into 91L has been canceled, and the initial flight into the disturbance is now set for tomorrow instead, as 91L did not look organized enough this morning to warrant it.

During the past 12 hours or so, the tropical low has appeared to re-consolidate a bit more offshore, with some weak but noteworthy attempts at banding now evident. It is not entirely clear if this rejiggering more offshore is masking the same forward speed, albeit from a renewed location, but regardless, the system is now more over very warm water than not, and in a region of fairly favorable shear with a healthy upper-level anticyclone aloft. This will give 91L at least an extra day to develop.

From the current location, models suggest that over the next 72 hours track will begin bending more poleward. Interests in South Texas and Louisiana may want to start paying closer attention and listen to local mets and NWS offices for possible impacts in your immediate area.

Longer range speculation about 91L as well as various model runs are available in the 91L Forecast Lounge
-Ciel


Original Entry
Today marks the first day of the 2019 Atlantic Hurricane season, which has already had a short lived named storm, Andrea. come and go. And an area under watch near the Yucatan with a 30% chance for development.

Last year was most memorable for Hurricane Florence which strengthened into a major but weakened before landfall, but its slow movement caused tremendous flooding and storm surge along the Carolinas.

And hurricane Michael which started out in the west Caribbean and kept growing, making landfall as a Category 5 hurricane near Mexico Beach, FL. (Hurricane Michael upgraded to a Category 5 at time of U.S. landfall)

Several storms threatened Hawaii, and caused great rainfall on the Big Island, but as many storms do there, weakened and went away before landfall while the Kilauea eruption was winding down. Some of the eruption effects near Lelani Estates we captured on the USGS webcam recording here http://flhurricane.com/imageanimator.php?356

Once again we’ll be watching out in the Atlantic, and Hawaii if any storms threaten there.

On June 16th ,6:45pm in Tallahassee, FL at the Governer's square regal cinema our friend Mark Sudduth from Hurricanetrack.com will be having the Florida premiere that some of us may attend. It is open to the public (first come first serve, no charge)

May 1st Tropics Watching

Posted: 10:42 AM 01 May 2019 | | Add Comment

May 1st a month away from the start of the Atlantic Hurricane season (15 days from the East Pacific season) and there is an area over the Bahamas worth watching.

In fact the National Hurricane center issued a special tropical weather outlook this morning, stating that the area has 20% chance for this area over the Bahamas to develop into something tropical,

What this usually translates to is most likely some rain effects felt in Florida and the Bahamas as it drifts west toward the peninsula and then is forecast to bend back to the east and out to sea, which is the timeframe the 20% chance is for

It is still worth watching for potential nasty weather in Florida Thursday and Friday in parts of South and Central Florida..

As of 10:40AM there was not yet an invest area designated for the disturbance.

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.
