DISCUSSION AND 48-HOUR OUTLOOK
——————————
At 200 PM PDT (2100 UTC), the center of Tropical Depression
Nineteen-E was located near latitude 9.5 North, longitude 126.2
West. The depression is moving toward the west near 15 mph (24
km/h), and this motion with a decrease in forward speed is expected
through Saturday. A turn toward the west-northwest is expected by
Sunday.

Maximum sustained winds have increased to near 35 mph (55 km/h) with
higher gusts. Strengthening is forecast, and the depression is
expected to become a tropical storm tonight and a hurricane on
Sunday.

The estimated minimum central pressure is 1005 mb (29.68 inches).

TROPICAL DEPRESSION NINETEEN-E DISCUSSION NUMBER 8
NWS NATIONAL HURRICANE CENTER MIAMI FL EP192015
200 PM PDT FRI OCT 16 2015

The depression’s cloud pattern has increased in organization since
yesterday. A small CDO-like feature appears to be forming over the
estimated low-level center. There has also been an increase in
banding features and their associated curvature, especially over the
western half of the circulation. Dvorak intensity estimates have
increased some, and the initial intensity estimate is raised to 30
kt.

Recent fixes suggest that the depression may be slowing down, and
the initial motion estimate could be slightly slower than the
longer-term motion of 265/13. The cyclone is forecast to maintain a
general westward course underneath a mid-level subtropical ridge
during the next 24 to 36 hours but decelerate as the tail of a
mid- to upper- level trough, extending from the U.S. west coast,
causes the ridge to weaken. As the ridge weakens further by 36
hours, the cyclone should begin to gain more latitude. An even
greater in increase in latitude is expected after 96 hours when the
cyclone encounters a more significant weakness west of 140W. The
official track forecast has changed very little compared to the
previous one and is near the multi-model consensus throughout the
forecast period.

With the increased organization of the cyclone’s central features,
intensification seems likely in an environment characterized by
very warm SSTs, low shear, and a moist mid-troposphere. In fact,
the SHIPS RI index shows a 65 percent chance of a 25-kt increase in
intensity during the next 24 hours. The official intensity forecast
is raised relative to the previous one, especially during the early
part of the forecast. Given the very conducive large-scale
environment for intensification, it would not be surprising to see
more occur than what is currently forecast.

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.
