HURRICANE ISELLE DISCUSSION NUMBER 21
NWS NATIONAL HURRICANE CENTER MIAMI FL EP092014
800 AM PDT TUE AUG 05 2014

Iselle has changed little in organization during the past six
hours. The eye remains well defined, with cloud tops to -70C
occurring in the eyewall. Analyses from the SHIPS model and from
CIMSS at the University of Wisconsin indicate 15-20 kt of
southwesterly vertical wind shear over the system. However, this
has not yet disrupted the inner core. The initial intensity remains
110 kt based on a combination of subjective and objective satellite
intensity estimates. An Air Force Reserve Hurricane Hunter aircraft
is scheduled to investigate Iselle near 06/0600Z, which will provide
ground truth for the intensity.

The initial motion estimate is 270/8 kt. The subtropical ridge to
the north of Iselle should strengthen during the next several days,
which should steer the cyclone generally west-northwestward with an
increase in forward speed. The track model guidance remains
tightly clustered and forecasts Iselle to pass near or over the
Hawaiian Islands in 72-84 hours. Based on this, the new forecast
track is again just an update of the previous track, and it lies in
the center of the track guidance envelope.

The analyzed and 24-hour forecast shear have both increased since
the previous advisory, and it is likely that Iselle will lose its
annular structure later today or tonight. This should result in
weakening along the lines of the previous forecast since a
significant part of the circulation is over sea surface temperatures
of less than 26C. The intensity forecast becomes more uncertain
after 36 hours. The cyclone will be moving over increasing sea
surface temperatures west of 152W. The dynamical models are in poor
agreement on how much shear the Iselle will experience, with the
UKMET forecasting strong shear while the GFS/ECMWF forecast less
shear. One last factor is that the cyclone is likely to encounter a
very dry air mass as it approaches Hawaii. The intensity guidance
responds to these factors by diverging. The SHIPS and Florida State
Superensemble forecast an intensity near 40 kt when Iselle gets near
Hawaii, while the GFDL and HWRF forecast it to be a hurricane. The
intensity forecast from 48-120 hours has been nudged upward in
agreement with the LGEM model and the intensity consensus, and it
calls for Iselle to be just below hurricane strength near Hawaii.

Interests in the Hawaiian Islands should closely monitor the
progress of Iselle. However, it is important not to focus too
closely on the exact track and intensity forecasts because the
average track error 72 hours out is about 100 miles, the average
intensity error is about 15 kt. In addition, the hazards of a
tropical cyclone can extend over a broad area well away from the
center.

This is the last advisory issued by the National Hurricane Center on
Iselle. Future Public Advisories will be issued by the Central
Pacific Hurricane Center under AWIPS header HFOTCPCP3 and WMO header
WTPA33 PHFO, while Forecast/Advisories will be issued under
AWIPS header HFOTCMCP3 and WMO header WTPA23 PHFO.

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.
