…BLAS DECAYING OVER COOL WATERS…

SUMMARY OF 800 PM PDT…0300 UTC…INFORMATION
———————————————-
LOCATION…19.2N 131.0W
ABOUT 1380 MI…2225 KM W OF THE SOUTHERN TIP OF BAJA CALIFORNIA
MAXIMUM SUSTAINED WINDS…80 MPH…130 KM/H
PRESENT MOVEMENT…NW OR 325 DEGREES AT 12 MPH…19 KM/H
MINIMUM CENTRAL PRESSURE…985 MB…29.09 INCHES

WATCHES AND WARNINGS
——————–
There are no coastal watches or warnings in effect.

DISCUSSION AND 48-HOUR OUTLOOK
——————————
At 800 PM PDT (0300 UTC), the center of Hurricane Blas was located
near latitude 19.2 North, longitude 131.0 West. Blas is moving
toward the northwest near 12 mph (19 km/h), and this motion is
expected to continue for the next 24 hours. A gradual turn
to the west is anticipated thereafter.

Maximum sustained winds have decreased to near 80 mph (130 km/h)
with higher gusts.  Weakening is forecast, and Blas is expected
to degenerate into a remnant low on Sunday.

Hurricane-force winds extend outward up to 30 miles (45 km) from the
center, and tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 105
miles (165 km).

The estimated minimum central pressure is 985 mb (29.09 inches).

HURRICANE BLAS DISCUSSION NUMBER  25
NWS NATIONAL HURRICANE CENTER MIAMI FL       EP032016
800 PM PDT FRI JUL 08 2016

Blas has continued to move over increasingly cooler waters, and
although the convection has been on a general weakening trend, the
hurricane still has a vigorous circulation as indicated by ASCAT
earlier today.  A blend of subjective and objective Dvorak numbers
from all agencies supports an initial intensity of 70 kt. In
addition to the effect of cooler waters, the shear is forecast to
increase. Recent microwave imagery suggests that the low-level
center is south of the convection, indicating that the shear is
already increasing.  These factors should result in faster
weakening, and Blas is expected to become a remnant low by Sunday or
sooner. In fact, SHIPS and LGEM basically dissipate the cyclone
in 48 hours or so.

The cyclone is moving toward the northwest or 325 degrees at about
10 kt around the southwestern periphery of the Pacific subtropical
ridge, and this general track is forecast to continue for a day or
so. In about 36 hours or less, Blas should have become a shallow
system and will likely be steered westward and west-southwestward by
the low-level trade winds. Most of the models have been fairly
consistent with this scenario for a while, and there are no obvious
reasons to vary from earlier NHC forecasts.

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.
