HURRICANE HILDA DISCUSSION NUMBER 20
NWS CENTRAL PACIFIC HURRICANE CENTER HONOLULU HI EP102015
1100 AM HST MON AUG 10 2015

THE U.S. 53RD WEATHER RECONNAISSANCE AIRCRAFT WHICH SAMPLED THE
INNER CORE OF HILDA EARLIER THIS MORNING…INDICATED MAX SUSTAINED
WINDS FROM SFMR DATA OF 85 KNOTS. MEANWHILE…SURFACE WINDS FROM
THE MBL WIND DATA INDICATED 77 KNOTS…FROM THE WL150 DATA 74
KNOTS…AND FROM A REDUCTION OF THE MAX FLIGHT LEVEL WINDS RESULTED
IN SURFACE WINDS OF 82 KNOTS. BASED ON THE POTENTIAL OF SOME RAIN
CONTAMINATION IN THE SFMR WINDS…WE USED A BLENDED APPROACH FOR
THE INITIAL INTENSITY ESTIMATE. AS A RESULT…THE INITIAL INTENSITY
WAS KEPT AT 80 KNOTS FOR THIS ADVISORY. THE INITIAL MOTION IS
BASED ON THE AIRCRAFT FIXES AND SATELLITE EXTRAPOLATION…AND WILL
BE SET AT 300 DEGREES AT 7 KNOTS. THE SATELLITE PRESENTATION OF
HILDA CONTINUES TO SLOWLY DEGRADE AS THE SYSTEM ENCOUNTERS
INCREASING WESTERLY VERTICAL WIND SHEAR. THIS IS CONFIRMED BY THE
LATEST UW-CIMSS VERTICAL WIND SHEAR ANALYSIS WHICH SHOWS 36 KNOTS
FROM 260 DEGREES. MEANWHILE…THE LATEST FIXES FROM PHFO…SAB AND
JTWC INDICATED T NUMBERS OF 4.5 TO 5.0 OR 77 TO 90 KNOTS.

HILDA REMAINS WITHIN A WEAKNESS IN THE MID TO UPPER LEVEL RIDGE
EXTENDING FROM A LOW ALOFT NEAR 27N156W…SOUTHEASTWARD TO THE
TROPICAL CYCLONE. WITH THE LOW ALOFT WELL TO THE NORTHWEST OF THE
SYSTEM EXPECTED TO RETROGRADE OFF TO THE NORTHWEST OVER THE NEXT
COUPLE DAYS…EXPECT THAT HILDA WILL CONTINUE TO TRACK SLOWLY OFF
TO THE WEST-NORTHWEST…WHICH IS SUPPORTED BY THE LATEST MODEL
CONSENSUS. THE MODEL GUIDANCE HAS INDICATED A SLOWING IN THE
FORWARD SPEED OF THE SYSTEM AS IT ENCOUNTERS INCREASING WESTERLY
WIND SHEAR OVER THE NEXT SEVERAL DAYS…AND THIS SEEMS REASONABLE AS
THE SYSTEM BECOMES INCREASINGLY TILTED AND LOSES DEEP CONVECTION. AS
A RESULT…THE FORECAST TRACK WILL REMAIN VERY CLOSE TO THE
PREVIOUS ADVISORY…WITH A SLOWING IN THE FORWARD SPEED OF THE
SYSTEM THROUGH 72 HOURS. THIS IS CLOSELY IN LINE WITH WITH THE
LATEST TVCN. BEYOND 72 HOURS…THE SHEAR IS EXPECTED TO HAVE TAKEN A
LARGE TOLL ON HILDA…WHICH SHOULD ALLOW IT TO GET INCREASINGLY
CAUGHT UP WITHIN THE TRADE WIND FLOW. AS A RESULT…WILL SHOW A
SLIGHT INCREASE IN FORWARD SPEED AND A SLIGHT BEND TOWARD THE LEFT
OR SOUTH OF THE PREVIOUS FORECAST TRACK FOR THE 96 AND 120 HOUR
POINTS.

THE INTENSITY FORECAST FOR HILDA WILL BE HIGHLY DEPENDENT ON THE
INCREASING WESTERLY WIND SHEAR OVER THE SYSTEM. THE COMBINATION OF
SHEAR AND VERY DRY MID LEVEL AIR TO THE WEST OF THE SYSTEM WHICH IS
EVIDENT IN WATER VAPOR IMAGERY…SHOULD ALLOW FOR SLOW AND STEADY
WEAKENING THROUGH THE FORECAST PERIOD. THE OFFICIAL INTENSITY
FORECAST IS VERY CLOSE TO ICON…AND WILL SHOW HILDA WEAKENING TO
TROPICAL STORM STRENGTH ON TUESDAY AND BECOMING A TROPICAL
DEPRESSION THURSDAY NIGHT OR FRIDAY.

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.
