HURRICANE DARBY DISCUSSION NUMBER  17
NWS NATIONAL HURRICANE CENTER MIAMI FL       EP052016
200 PM PDT FRI JUL 15 2016

Darby’s eye has been clearing out during the past few hours with
some warming noted in infrared satellite imagery.  There are some
breaks in the surrounding convection due to infiltration of dry
air, which has caused the subjective data-T numbers to oscillate
around 4.5 and 5.0 since this morning.  However, CI numbers are 5.0
from both TAFB and SAB, and ADT estimates are up to 5.3/97 kt. Based
on these data, Darby’s maximum winds are increased to 90 kt.

Vertical shear over Darby has become quite low and should remain low
during the entire forecast period.  However, based on the latest
global SST analysis, Darby will only be over waters warmer than
26.5C for another 12-18 hours and is likely to reach SSTs as cold as
24C in a couple of days. Therefore, additional significant
strengthening is not anticipated, and in fact, a gradual weakening
trend is shown in the official forecast for the entire five days.
This forecast is very similar to the previous one and remains
relatively close to the SHIPS guidance and the Florida State
Superensemble.

The hurricane is moving west-northwestward, or 290/8 kt, to the
south of a strong mid-level ridge extending west of northern
Mexico.  The ridge is forecast to weaken during the next 24 hours
due to an amplifying mid- to upper-level trough along the west
coast of the United States.  This should keep Darby moving
west-northwestward for the next few days, followed by a turn to the
west at the end of the forecast period once the weaker cyclone
becomes steered by lower-level steering flow.  It may sound like a
broken record, but the track guidance remains tightly clustered for
the entire forecast period.  The updated NHC forecast is
essentially down the middle of the guidance envelope and not too
much different from the previous forecast.

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.
