HURRICANE IGNACIO DISCUSSION NUMBER 13
NWS CENTRAL PACIFIC HURRICANE CENTER HONOLULU HI EP122015
500 PM HST THU AUG 27 2015

ALTHOUGH ITS OVERALL APPEARANCE HAS BECOME A BIT RAGGED IN THE
SATELLITE IMAGERY ON THE WEST SIDE THIS AFTERNOON…DEEP CONVECTION
NEAR THE CENTER OF IGNACIO CONTINUES TO PUSH TOPS ABOVE THE -80C
LEVEL. THE EYE HAS REMAINED CLOUD-FILLED THROUGH THE DAY WITHIN A
CENTRAL DENSE OVERCAST. A 2246 UTC GPM PASS SHOWED THE STRONGEST
CORE CONVECTION SOUTHEAST OF THE CENTER. DVORAK INTENSITY ESTIMATES
CAME IN AT 77 KT FROM SAB AND JTWC…AND 90 KT FROM PHFO. THE 2330
UTC CIMSS ADT ESTIMATE WAS ONCE AGAIN CLOSE TO 80 KT. WITH THE
AVAILABLE ESTIMATES UNCHANGED…THE INITIAL INTENSITY FOR THIS
ADVISORY PACKAGE IS ONCE AGAIN HELD AT 80 KT. A 1932 UTC ASCAT PASS
WAS USED TO HELP REFINE THE WIND RADII.

THE INITIAL MOTION FOR THIS ADVISORY IS 290/11 KT. IGNACIO IS MOVING
SOUTH OF A SUBTROPICAL RIDGE WHICH IS EXPECTED TO WEAKEN. THIS WILL
RESULT IN A SLOWER FORWARD MOTION STARTING TONIGHT. OBJECTIVE AIDS
FOR THIS PACKAGE CONTINUE TO SHOW A GENERAL WEST-NORTHWEST TO
NORTHWEST TRACK THROUGH THE FORECAST PERIOD. THE LATEST GFS HAS
SHIFTED ITS FORECAST TRACK SOUTHWARD A BIT…POSSIBLY DUE TO A
WEAKER PROJECTED CYCLONE IN THE MODEL. THE HWRF HAS SHIFTED
SOUTH AS WELL WITH A WEAKER SYSTEM. THE CURRENT FORECAST MAINTAINS
THE TRACK OF THE PREVIOUS FORECAST AND IS CLOSE TO THE
GFEX THROUGH 72 HOURS…THEN CLOSE TO THE GFS AT 96 AND 120 HOURS.

DESPITE BEING OVER SEA SURFACE TEMPERATURES ABOVE 28C AND LIGHT TO
MODERATE VERTICAL WIND SHEAR…IGNACIO HAS NOT BEEN ABLE STRENGTHEN
TODAY. ACCORDING TO SHIPS GUIDANCE…A WINDOW FOR FURTHER
STRENGTHENING SHOULD EXIST THROUGH 48 HOURS. THE CURRENT FORECAST
REFLECTS THIS…THOUGH WITH A MAXIMUM INTENSITY LOWERED TO 95 KT DUE
TO TODAY/S TRENDS. GRADUAL WEAKENING IS FORECAST BEYOND 48
HOURS…MAINLY DUE TO SLIGHTLY COOLER SEA SURFACE TEMPERATURES AND
INCREASING VERTICAL WIND SHEAR. THIS IS CLOSE TO THE IVCN CONSENSUS
THROUGH 48 HOURS AND DSHP BEYOND 48 HOURS.

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.
