DISCUSSION AND 48-HOUR OUTLOOK
——————————
At 200 AM PDT (0900 UTC), the center of Hurricane Celia was located
near latitude 15.0 North, longitude 124.5 West.  Celia is moving
toward the west near 13 mph (20 km/h), and this motion is expected
to continue today.  A turn toward the west-northwest with a slight
decrease in forward speed is forecast tonight.

Maximum sustained winds have increased to near 85 mph (140 km/h)
with higher gusts.  Some additional strengthening is expected during
the next day or so.  Slow weakening is forecast to begin on Tuesday.

Hurricane-force winds extend outward up to 30 miles (45 km) from the
center and tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 140 miles
(220 km).

The estimated minimum central pressure is 983 mb (29.03 inches).

HURRICANE CELIA DISCUSSION NUMBER  19
NWS NATIONAL HURRICANE CENTER MIAMI FL       EP042016
200 AM PDT MON JUL 11 2016

Celia still has a somewhat ragged satellite appearance tonight.  The
deepest convection is located in a broken ring around a ragged
intermittent eye and in a band well east of the center.  TAFB and
SAB Dvorak estimates at 06Z were T4.5/77 kt, and the initial
intensity is set to 75 kt for this advisory.  Additional slow
strengthening seems likely for the next day or so while Celia moves
over SSTs above 26C.  After that time the waters will cool, which
should result in a slow weakening through the remainder of the
forecast period since the shear will remain low.  The new NHC
forecast is similar to the previous one, showing a peak of 90 kt in
about 24 h, and this is above all of the intensity guidance.  During
the weakening phase, the NHC forecast lies between the stronger
SHIPS model and the weaker LGEM.

The hurricane is moving westward at 11 kt.  A turn toward the
west-northwest is forecast in about 24 hours as Celia reaches the
southwestern edge of a mid-level ridge.  By the end of the period,
the ridge should rebuild to the north, resulting in the track
bending back toward the west.  Overall, the track model guidance is
in good agreement on this scenario.  For this cycle, the NHC
forecast has been adjusted a bit to the north, but lies south of the
latest TVCN multi-model consensus aid.

An ASCAT-B pass from around 0520Z was used to adjust the initial
34-kt and 50-kt wind radii.

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.
