ABOUT 285 MI…460 KM SSE OF HILO HAWAII
ABOUT 480 MI…770 KM SE OF HONOLULU HAWAII
MAXIMUM SUSTAINED WINDS…80 MPH…130 KM/H
PRESENT MOVEMENT…WNW OR 285 DEGREES AT 14 MPH…22 KM/H
MINIMUM CENTRAL PRESSURE…985 MB…29.09 INCHES

WATCHES AND WARNINGS

There are no coastal watches or warnings in effect.

DISCUSSION AND OUTLOOK

At 1100 AM HST (2100 UTC), the center of Hurricane Erick was located
near latitude 16.0 North, longitude 153.2 West. Erick is moving
toward the west-northwest near 14 mph (22 km/h), and this motion is
expected to continue over the next couple of days. On the forecast
track, the center of Erick will pass within about 200 miles
south of the Big Island of Hawaii later today and tonight.

Maximum sustained winds are near 80 mph (130 km/h) with higher
gusts. Significant weakening is forecast during the next couple of
days, and Erick is expected to weaken to a tropical storm later
today or tonight.

Hurricane-force winds extend outward up to 25 miles (35 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).

HAZARDS AFFECTING LAND

SURF: Swells generated by Erick will build across the Hawaiian
Islands today and persist across some areas through Friday,
potentially producing dangerous surf conditions, mainly along east
and southeast facing shores.

RAINFALL: Moisture associated with Erick will spread over portions
of the Hawaiian Islands through Saturday, bringing the potential for
localized heavy rainfall. Total rainfall amounts of 4 to 8 inches
are possible, with localized higher amounts.

Please consult products from the National Weather Service in
Honolulu for more information.

NEXT ADVISORY

Next complete advisory at 500 PM HST.

The satellite presentation of Erick continues to gradually degrade
under southwesterly vertical wind shear in excess of 30 kt. An area
of persistent deep convection and elevated lightning activity is
holding near the core, but a series of microwave passes at 1328,
1513, 1621, and 1632 UTC suggest that the tropical cyclone is
becoming tilted with height due to the wind shear. Subjective Dvorak
and CIMSS ADT current intensity numbers ranged from 4.5 to 5.0, with
the subjective Final T numbers coming in at 3.5 to 5.0. A blend of
these estimates would suggest that Erick remains a 75 knot
hurricane, but further degradation on satellite imagery since the
Dvorak fix time compels lowering the initial intensity to 70 kt for
this advisory.

Due to the absence of an eye and the suspected tilting of the
tropical cyclone with height, locating the low-level center has been
challenging. However, earlier microwave passes and recent GOES-17
imagery suggest that overnight position estimates were too far north
and west. After some adjustments, the initial motion estimate is
285/12 kt. A continued west-northwestward motion is expected to
persist over the next 48 hours, followed by a turn toward the
northwest and a loss of forward speed as the low- to mid-level ridge
steering Erick is weakened by an upper-level trough. The forecast
track has changed little from the prior advisory, staying close to
the middle of the guidance envelope near the UKMET. The spread in
the guidance increases beyond 48 hours, though Erick will have
already passed south of the main Hawaiian Islands.

Steady weakening is expected during the next several days. Erick
will be approaching an upper-level trough that will produce
relentless vertical wind shear of around 30 kt. Since the philosophy
remains unchanged, the intensity forecast closely follows the prior
forecast. As a result, the official forecast is now a little more
aggressive than all of the guidance in the next 24 hours, even
though it remains close to the CTCI and SHIPS throughout most of the
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.
