HURRICANE JULIO DISCUSSION NUMBER 17
NWS NATIONAL HURRICANE CENTER MIAMI FL EP102014
800 PM PDT THU AUG 07 2014

Despite a marginal environment, Julio has become better organized
over the past several hours with warming temperatures in the eye
and strong convection in the eyewall. Subjective and objective
Dvorak estimates from all agencies suggest that the intensity has
increased to at least 100 kt, so the initial wind speed is raised to
that value.

With few outer bands and a symmetric structure around the eye,
Julio now appears to have become an annular hurricane, much like
Iselle in the same general area a few days ago. While guidance
is generally showing a steady or quick weakening, these hurricanes
are known to be more resilent to marginal environments than most.
Since little change is expected to the SSTs or shear for the next
day or so, it makes sense to go above the model guidance at that
time with the current annular structure, and the NHC prediction is
raised from the previous one. An increase in westerly shear after
that time could cause Julio to transition into a more conventional
cyclone structure, so the intensity forecast is blended with the
previous interpolated forecast and the model consensus. At long
range, although the SSTs are forecast to rise, there could also be
an increase in shear. With the large uncertainty, little change is
made to the extended-range intensity prediction.

Julio is moving at about 280/14. There has been no change to the
forecast synoptic pattern with the hurricane expected to remain
south of the subtropical ridge for the next few days, with a
westward turn at long range due to the ridge strengthening. Track
guidance is in better agreement than the last cycle, with even
the GFDL model, formerly an outlier solution near Hawaii, shifting
northward away from the islands. The new NHC prediction is
adjusted a bit to the north at longer range, close to the model
consensus, although most of the better performing individual models
are still farther north. It should be noted that data from a NOAA
G-IV jet synoptic surveillance mission for Julio should be included
in the 0000 UTC model runs.

Julio is expected to move into the Central Pacific Hurricane
Center’s area of responsibility by 0900 UTC and will issue the next
advisory on this system.

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.
