PRESENT MOVEMENT…W OR 270 DEGREES AT 2 MPH…4 KM/H
MINIMUM CENTRAL PRESSURE…1006 MB…29.71 INCHES

WATCHES AND WARNINGS
——————–
There are no coastal watches or warnings in effect.

DISCUSSION AND 48-HOUR OUTLOOK
——————————
At 900 PM MDT (0300 UTC), the center of Tropical Depression Four-E
was located near latitude 12.3 North, longitude 111.7 West. The
depression has been drifting westward near 2 mph (4 km/h). A
westward track with a slight increase in forward speed is
expected during the next two days.

Maximum sustained winds remain near 35 mph (55 km/h) with higher
gusts. The depression is forecast to become a tropical storm
before the weekend begins.

The estimated minimum central pressure is 1006 mb (29.71 inches).

HAZARDS AFFECTING LAND
———————-
None.

Satellite imagery indicate that the low-level circulation associated
with the depression has become larger and better defined, however
the convection near the center is minimal. Most of the thunderstorm
activity is occurring in bands well to the north and southeast of
the center. There are no reasons to change the initial intensity of
30 kt, and this estimate is probably on the high side since the
Dvorak T-numbers are steady or lower tonight.

The depression has failed to strengthen likely due to the upwelling
left by Hurricane Blas, and this possibility has been taken into
consideration in previous NHC forecasts. Since most of the other
environmental parameters are favorable for intensification, the NHC
forecast still calls for such a process to begin on Friday. More
significant strengthening is anticipated beyond 48 hours, although
the NHC forecast is not as aggressive as the SHIPS models.

The overall circulation has been moving very little, and in fact it
has been drifting westward at only 2 kt. This could be the result
of the center rotating around a larger circulation. Nevertheless,
the cyclone is south of a strong subtropical ridge which is forecast
to amplify by most of the global models. This forecast pattern
favors a faster westward motion for the next 3 to 4 days with a
gradual turn to the west-northwest as the system reaches the
southwestern edge of the ridge.  The NHC forecast is not very
different from the previous one, and deviates very little from the
multi-model consensus.

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.
