…DARBY MAINTAINING STRENGTH FOR NOW…
…STILL LIKELY TO WEAKEN…

SUMMARY OF 800 PM PDT…0300 UTC…INFORMATION
———————————————-
LOCATION…18.4N 129.0W
ABOUT 1270 MI…2045 KM W OF THE SOUTHERN TIP OF BAJA CALIFORNIA
MAXIMUM SUSTAINED WINDS…90 MPH…150 KM/H
PRESENT MOVEMENT…W OR 275 DEGREES AT 9 MPH…15 KM/H
MINIMUM CENTRAL PRESSURE…978 MB…28.88 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 Darby was located
near latitude 18.4 North, longitude 129.0 West.  Darby is moving
toward the west near 9 mph (15 km/h), and a generally westward
motion at a slightly faster forward speed is expected over the next
48 hours.

Maximum sustained winds remain near 90 mph (150 km/h) with higher
gusts.  Weakening is forecast during the next 48 hours, and Darby
should become a tropical storm in a day or so.

Hurricane-force winds extend outward up to 30 miles (45 km) from the
center and tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 115 miles
(185 km).

The estimated minimum central pressure is 978 mb (28.88 inches).

HAZARDS AFFECTING LAND

HURRICANE DARBY DISCUSSION NUMBER  26
NWS NATIONAL HURRICANE CENTER MIAMI FL       EP052016
800 PM PDT SUN JUL 17 2016

Darby has not weakened since the last advisory; in fact the
hurricane looks a little more impressive than it did earlier today.
Although central convection has not strengthened appreciably, the
CDO has become more symmetric and the eye a little more distinct.
The current intensity estimate is held at 80 kt which is close to a
consensus of Dvorak estimates from SAB and TAFB, along with ADT
estimates from UW-CIMSS.  Darby is over SSTs near 24 deg C and will
be moving over slightly cooler waters overnight.  After that, the
cyclone should traverse SSTs near 25 deg C through 48 hours.
Gradual weakening is predicted due to these somewhat cool waters,
and Darby should lose hurricane status in about 24 hours with
additional weakening thereafter.  In 72 hours or so, the ocean under
Darby will warm slightly to 25-26 deg C but by that time the
vertical shear, which had been low, is forecast to increase and this
should prevent restrenghtening in the latter part of the forecast
period.  The official intensity forecast is close to the latest
model consensus.

Darby continues on a westward track and the initial motion estimate
remains 275/8 kt.  There is no reason to change the track forecast
from the previous advisory package.  A narrow east-west oriented
mid-level ridge is expected to be maintained to the north of Darby
for the next several days.  Late in the period, a mid-level high
builds to the northwest of the tropical cyclone which should cause
a slightly south of west motion.  The official forecast lies a
little south of the dynamical model consensus and is a blend of the
latest GFS and ECMWF predictions.

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.
