HURRICANE JULIO DISCUSSION NUMBER 12
NWS NATIONAL HURRICANE CENTER MIAMI FL EP102014
200 PM PDT WED AUG 06 2014

Satellite imagery shows that Julio has become a little better
organized, with multiple convective bands near the center and
an eye possibly trying to form. The latest SSM/IS overpass,
though, suggests the eyewall is still open to the north. The
satellite intensity estimates from TAFB and SAB are 77 kt and
65 kt, so the initial intensity remains at a possibly-conservative
65 kt. The cirrus outflow remains good over the southwestern
semicircle and poor elsewhere.

The initial motion is now 290/15, which is a little to the right of
the previous advisory. The NHC model guidance is in good agreement
on Julio moving along the southern periphery of a deep-layer ridge
to its north for the next 72 hours or so. After that, a weakness in
the ridge is forecast to develop north of the Hawaiian Islands, and
Julio is expected to turn more northwestward. Based on current
trends, Julio is likely to be a little north of the previous
forecast during the first 48 hours or so. However, at the later
times the dynamical models have shifted southward since their
previous forecasts, with the most notable shift by the GFS. The
consensus models and the center of the guidance envelope have also
shifted southward at 96-120 hours. The new track forecast will
also be adjusted southward at those times, but it lies a little to
the north of the consensus models. The NOAA G-IV jet is currently
flying a synoptic surveillance mission for Hurricane Iselle, and
this data is also expected to help subsequent forecasts of Julio.

The dynamical models have come into reasonably good agreement that
Julio will remain in a light vertical wind shear environment through
the forecast period. Thus, the intensity is most likely going to be
controlled by sea surface temperatures and nearby dry air. While
Julio is moving over gradually decreasing sea surface temperatures,
some additional strengthening is possible during the next 12 hours
or so. After that, the cyclone is expected to traverse sea surface
temperatures of 25C-26C and gradually move into a drier air mass.
This should cause a gradual weakening for the rest of the forecast
period. The new intensity forecast is adjusted slightly from the
previous forecast and is in best agreement with the intensity
consensus. It should be noted that despite the marginal sea surface
temperatures and moisture, none of the dynamical models forecast
Julio to dissipate during the next 5 days. Indeed, the GFDL and
HWRF are stronger than the current forecast at 96-120 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.
