…CELIA PROBABLY AT PEAK INTENSITY…
…SHOULD BEGIN WEAKENING TOMORROW…

SUMMARY OF 800 PM PDT…0300 UTC…INFORMATION
———————————————-
LOCATION…15.5N 127.0W
ABOUT 1225 MI…1970 KM WSW OF THE SOUTHERN TIP OF BAJA CALIFORNIA
MAXIMUM SUSTAINED WINDS…100 MPH…155 KM/H
PRESENT MOVEMENT…WNW OR 285 DEGREES AT 10 MPH…17 KM/H
MINIMUM CENTRAL PRESSURE…972 MB…28.71 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 Celia was located
near latitude 15.5 North, longitude 127.0 West.  Celia is moving
toward the west-northwest near 10 mph (17 km/h), and a
west-northwestward or northwestward motion is expected over the
next 48 hours.

Maximum sustained winds remain near 100 mph (155 km/h) with higher
gusts.  A gradual weakening trend is likely 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 972 mb (28.71 inches).

HAZARDS AFFECTING LAND
———————-
None.

HURRICANE CELIA DISCUSSION NUMBER  22
NWS NATIONAL HURRICANE CENTER MIAMI FL       EP042016
800 PM PDT MON JUL 11 2016

Celia continues to lack a definitive Central Dense Overcast and the
central features look rather ragged in conventional geostationary
imagery.  A 37 GHz SSM/I image from a few hours ago revealed that
the eye was open over the northeast quadrant.  The current intensity
estimate is kept at 85 kt, which is a blend of subjective Dvorak
estimates from TAFB and SAB and UW-CIMSS ADT estimates.  Since
Celia should be moving over waters that will be gradually cooling
and into a more stable air mass, a weakening trend will commence
soon.  The official intensity forecast is very close to the latest
model consensus, IVCN.

The cyclone has turned toward the west-northwest and the motion is
now about 285/9 kt.  Celia is near the western periphery of a
mid-tropospheric subtropical ridge, and a west-northwestward to
northwestward motion is likely for the next couple of days.  A
mid-level cyclone currently to the northeast of the Hawaiian
Islands is predicted to open up into a trough and lift northward,
allowing a ridge to build back in to the north of the tropical
cyclone.  This evolution of the steering pattern should cause Celia
to turn more toward the west in the latter part of the forecast
period.  The track models have mostly shifted northward from
their previous predictions, so the official forecast has been nudged
a little to the north of the previous one.  This is south of the
latest dynamical model consensus, however.

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.
