TROPICAL STORM GUILLERMO DISCUSSION NUMBER  28

NWS CENTRAL PACIFIC HURRICANE CENTER HONOLULU HI   EP092015

1100 AM HST WED AUG 05 2015

 

 

THE CENTER OF GUILLERMO HAS BECOME EXPOSED DUE TO STRONG VERTICAL

WIND SHEAR. A U.S. AIR FORCE HURRICANE HUNTER AIRCRAFT FOUND

PERSISTENT FLIGHT LEVEL WINDS OF UP TO 62 KT WITHIN THE NORTHEAST

QUADRANT…WHERE DEEP CONVECTION IS NOW CONFINED…AND CONVERSION OF

THE FLIGHT LEVEL WINDS TO THE SURFACE YIELDS 50 KT. THE SFMR

REPORTED WINDS WERE UP TO 55 KT…BUT GIVEN COLLOCATED RAIN RATES…

THE FLIGHT LEVEL DATA HAVE BEEN USED FOR THE CURRENT INTENSITY OF 50

KT.

 

STEADY WEAKENING IS EXPECTED TO RESUME TODAY. VERTICAL WIND SHEAR

ACCORDING CIMSS IS NEARLY 45 KT…AND WITH AN UPPER LEVEL TROUGH

OVERHEAD…WIND SHEAR IS FORECAST TO INCREASE FURTHER DURING THE

NEXT 24 HOURS. THIS WILL LEAD TO STEADY WEAKENING AS THE WARM CORE

ALOFT BECOMES FURTHER DISRUPTED AND INCREASINGLY TILTED. THE

INTENSITY FORECAST IS SIMILAR TO THE PRIOR ADVISORY…WEAKENING

GUILLERMO INTO A TROPICAL DEPRESSION BY THURSDAY NIGHT WITH

DEGENERATION INTO A REMNANT LOW BY SATURDAY. THE FORECAST CLOSELY

FOLLOWS ICON. SHIPS IS MORE AGGRESSIVELY WEAKENING THE SYSTEM AND

FORECASTS DEGENERATION INTO A REMNANT LOW BY FRIDAY.

 

AIRCRAFT RECONNAISSANCE FOUND THE CENTER OF GUILLERMO TO BE

SLIGHTLY NORTH OF ITS EXPECTED POSITION THIS MORNING…AND

SUBSEQUENT VISIBLE SATELLITE IMAGERY SUPPORT THIS LOCATION…GIVING

AN INITIAL MOTION TOWARD THE WEST-NORTHWEST…295 DEGREES…AT 10

KT. THE NORTHWARD JOG IN THE INITIAL POSITION SUGGESTS THAT THE

CIRCULATION…THOUGH TILTED…IS STILL COUPLED AT THE LOWER LEVELS

AND ALOFT. UNDER THE INFLUENCE OF INCREASING VERTICAL WIND

SHEAR…THE LOW LEVEL CENTER COULD BECOME DECOUPLED…CAUSING THE

STEERING FLOW AFFECTING GUILLERMO TO BECOME INCREASINGLY DOMINATED

BY THE LOW LEVEL RIDGE THAT WILL REMAIN FAR TO THE NORTH-NORTHEAST.

WITH THIS IN MIND…THE TRACK FORECAST HAS BEEN CHANGED LITTLE FROM

THE LAST ADVISORY AND IS ALONG THE SOUTHERN EDGE OF THE GUIDANCE

ENVELOPE.

 

TROPICAL STORM WATCHES FOR MAUI COUNTY AND THE BIG ISLAND OF HAWAII

HAVE BEEN DISCONTINUED WITH THIS ADVISORY. THIS DECISION WAS MADE

GIVEN THE HIGH CONFIDENCE IN THE FORECAST FOR WEAKENING AND THE

DECREASE IN WIND PROBABILITIES OVER THE ISLANDS.

Technology Test Pilot

In 1995 At Maui High Performance Computing Center The Maui Scientific Analysis & Visualization of the Environment Program was first incubated. I was the principal investigator of this independant research project which was a joint development between MHPCC, Silicon Graphics Computers (SGI) & NKO.ORG. Using SGI Cosmo Worlds software, we pioneered the development of Internet based 3D virtual reality GIS based interactive worlds. In 1996 with a network of seven high performance SGI workstations we pioneered development of live streaming MPEG-1, MPEG-2, MPEG-4, Real Video and QuickTime Streaming Server utilizing Kassenna MediaBase software. In Maui 2002 we pioneered and tested the first wireless live streaming video using laptop computers and Maui Sky Fiber's portable 3G wireless device. In Maui we pioneered live streaming video using usb modems from AT&T , Verizon as well as live streaming from iPhone 3 over 3G wireless networks. Today The Maui S.A.V.E. Program has diversified into storm tracking including visualization and analysis of large, memory-intensive gridded data sets such as the National Hurricane Center's wind speed probabilities. I volunteer my services to numerous Disaster Services Organizations. In June 2013 I returned from Hurricane Sandy deployment as a computer operations service associate with the Disaster Services Technology Group assisting as The American Red Cross migrated from a Disaster Response Operation to Long Term Recovery Operations. Pioneering the production/editing and Internet distribution of HD video to sites like Youtube.com and Vimeo.com we are shining the light towards environmental and peace efforts of humans across the globe. Since 1992 I have held the vision of establishing Maui, Hawaii as the environmental sciences center of the world. After His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama of Tibet came to Maui This vision has expanded to establishing Maui as the environmental & peace center of the world.
