DISCUSSION AND 48-HOUR OUTLOOK
——————————
At 900 PM MDT (0300 UTC), the center of Tropical Depression Three-E
was located near latitude 11.1 North, longitude 108.3 West.  The
depression is moving toward the west near 12 mph (19 km/h), and a
general westward to west-northwestward motion at a similar forward
speed is expected to continue through Monday.

Maximum sustained winds are near 35 mph (55 km/h) with higher gusts.
Strengthening is forecast during the next 48 hours, and the
depression is forecast to become a tropical storm by Sunday and
reach hurricane strength on Monday.

The estimated minimum central pressure is 1007 mb (29.74 inches).

TROPICAL DEPRESSION THREE-E DISCUSSION NUMBER   1
NWS NATIONAL HURRICANE CENTER MIAMI FL       EP032016
900 PM MDT SAT JUL 02 2016

The deep convection associated with the area of low pressure well
southwest of Manzanillo has become much better organized during the
past 6 to 12 hours, and this system is now classified as a tropical
cyclone.  Satellite imagery shows a large convective canopy with
multiple curved bands.  The estimated center position is near the
eastern edge of the deep convection and the initial intensity is set
to 30 kt based on the latest Dvorak classification from TAFB.

The environment appears conducive for at least steady strengthening
during the next 3 days, as the cyclone will be moving over SSTs of
29-30C and in an environment of low to moderate shear and abundant
moisture.  The NHC intensity forecast shows the system becoming a
tropical storm tonight or early Sunday and becoming a hurricane on
Monday.  The system is expected to peak in intensity in 3 to 4 days
near major hurricane strength before gradual weakening begins as the
center moves over progressively cooler waters.  The official
forecast is above the intensity consensus and close to a blend of
the SHIPS, LGEM, and HWRF models.

The initial motion estimate is a somewhat uncertain 280/10 given the
recent formation of the system.  The dominant steering mechanism
through the forecast period will be the western periphery of a
subtropical ridge centered over northern Mexico and the southern
United States.  This pattern should guide the cyclone on a general
westward to west-northwestward motion during the next 5 days.  Most
of the track model guidance is in good agreement on this scenario
with the exception of the GFDL model, which is well to the right.
There is some along-track spread between the generally slower GFS
model and the faster ECMWF and HWRF through much of the period. The
across-track spread increases in 4-5 days with the GFS and GEFS
ensemble mean showing more of a poleward turn as they erode the
ridge more, while the ECMWF, ECMWF ensemble mean, and UKMET have a
stronger ridge and more westward motion. The NHC track forecast is
close to a blend of these two camps through the forecast period and
is of about average confidence.

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.
