HURRICANE IGNACIO DISCUSSION NUMBER 12
NWS CENTRAL PACIFIC HURRICANE CENTER HONOLULU HI EP122015
1100 AM HST THU AUG 27 2015

HURRICANE IGNACIO PASSED WEST OF 140W LONGITUDE SHORTLY AFTER 1500
UTC…MAKING IT THE EIGHTH TROPICAL CYCLONE IN THE CENTRAL NORTH
PACIFIC BASIN FOR THE 2015 HURRICANE SEASON. IGNACIO CONTINUES TO
HAVE A CLOUD-FILLED EYE WITH PERSISTENT CLOUD TOPS COLDER THAN -80C
AND AN OVERALL SYMMETRIC OUTFLOW. A 1642 UTC SSMI/S PASS AND
LIGHTNING DATA SHOWED THAT THE MOST ACTIVE DEEP CONVECTION HAS BEEN
OCCURRING SOUTH AND SOUTHWEST OF THE CENTER. DVORAK INTENSITY
ESTIMATES CAME IN AT 77 KT FROM SAB AND JTWC…AND 90 KT FROM PHFO.
A 1730 UTC CIMSS ADT ESTIMATE WAS CLOSE TO 80 KT. BASED ON A BLEND
OF THESE DATA…THE INITIAL INTENSITY FOR THIS ADVISORY WILL BE HELD
AT 80 KT.

IGNACIO IS MOVING AT 280/11 KT AND APPEARS TO HAVE MOVED A BIT LEFT
OF THE PREVIOUS FORECAST TRACK. DESPITE THIS SLIGHT WOBBLE…THE
GENERAL TRACK FORECAST REMAINS UNCHANGED WITH A SUBTROPICAL RIDGE TO
THE NORTH OF THE CYCLONE CONTINUING TO STEER IT TOWARD THE
WEST-NORTHWEST…THOUGH WITH A SLOWER FORWARD MOTION STARTING LATER
TODAY OR TONIGHT. FOR THIS FORECAST PACKAGE…THE DYNAMICAL
GUIDANCE SPREAD HAS BECOME TIGHTER…WITH THE ECMWF HAVING SHIFTED
NORTH TO LINE UP CLOSER WITH THE GFS. THE SHIFT APPEARS TO BE DUE TO
THE ECMWF SHOWING A STRONGER CYCLONE WITH LESS WEAKENING DUE TO
VERTICAL WIND SHEAR. THE CURRENT FORECAST IS CLOSE TO THE PREVIOUS
FORECAST AND MODEL CONSENSUS THROUGH 72 HOURS…THEN NUDGED
NORTHWARD CLOSER TO THE GFS AND ECMWF FOR 96 AND 120 HOURS.

THE HURRICANE SHOULD REMAIN OVER WARM SEA SURFACE TEMPERATURES AND
LIGHT TO MODERATE VERTICAL WIND SHEAR DURING THE NEXT COUPLE OF
DAYS. VERTICAL WIND SHEAR IS EXPECTED TO INCREASE AFTER 72
HOURS…WHICH SHOULD BEGIN A GRADUAL WEAKENING. THE INTENSITY
FORECAST FOR THIS PACKAGE IS CLOSE TO THE PREVIOUS FORECAST AND
GRADUALLY STRENGTHENS IGNACIO TO A MAJOR HURRICANE OVER THE NEXT 24
TO 48 HOURS…FOLLOWED BY GRADUAL WEAKENING AFTERWARD. THIS IS CLOSE
TO THE IVCN CONSENSUS THROUGH 48 HOURS…THEN SLIGHTLY BELOW IT FROM
72 HOURS THROUGH THE END OF THE FORECAST PERIOD.

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.
