DISCUSSION AND 48-HOUR OUTLOOK
——————————
At 900 PM MDT (0300 UTC), the center of Tropical Depression Four-E
was estimated near latitude 12.4 North, longitude 109.9 West. The
depression is moving toward the west-northwest near 8 mph (13 km/h).
A turn toward the west is expected on Thursday, and this motion
should continue for the next 2 days.

Maximum sustained winds are near 35 mph (55 km/h) with higher
gusts. The depression is forecast to become a tropical storm on
Thursday.

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

TROPICAL DEPRESSION FOUR-E DISCUSSION NUMBER   2
NWS NATIONAL HURRICANE CENTER MIAMI FL       EP042016
900 PM MDT WED JUL 06 2016

The depression is not in a hurry to intensify tonight. The
circulation is better defined, and although the convection is not
very deep at this time, it is acquiring a comma-shape form, which
suggests an increase in the convective pattern organization.  The
center appears to be located on the nose of the comma, but is not
embedded within the thunderstorm activity. T-numbers from SAB, TAFB
and ADTs from CIMSS are near 2.0 on the Dvorak scale. On this
basis, the initial intensity is kept at 30 kt.

The depression is embedded within a very favorable environment of
low shear for intensification, and only the upwelling left by strong
Hurricane Blas could cause a delay in the intensification process.
Most of the intensity guidance shows a substantial increase in the
winds by the end of the forecast period and in fact, the SHIPS model
increases the winds to above 100 kt. The NHC forecast follows the
model trend and makes the depression a hurricane in 3 days, but this
could happen earlier.

The depression is moving toward the west-northwest or 285 degrees
at 7 kt. Most of the global models amplify a very strong and nearly
stationary subtropical ridge which extends from the United States
westward across the Pacific. This steering pattern will likely force
the cyclone to move westward and even south of due west for 3 to
4 days. After that time the cyclone will begin to turn more to the
west-northwest around the southwestern periphery of the ridge. Most
of the track models are in agreement with this solution, and the NHC
forecast is in the middle of the guidance envelope, but favoring the
consensus between the GFS and the ECMWF global models.

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.
