FROM STRENGTHENING…

SUMMARY OF 900 PM MDT…0300 UTC…INFORMATION
———————————————-
LOCATION…13.7N 114.1W
ABOUT 690 MI…1115 KM SSW OF THE SOUTHERN TIP OF BAJA CALIFORNIA
MAXIMUM SUSTAINED WINDS…45 MPH…75 KM/H
PRESENT MOVEMENT…NW OR 305 DEGREES AT 9 MPH…15 KM/H
MINIMUM CENTRAL PRESSURE…1003 MB…29.62 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 Storm Celia was
located near latitude 13.7 North, longitude 114.1 West.  Celia is
moving toward the northwest near 9 mph (15 km/h).  A turn toward
the west-northwest at a faster forward speed is expected later
tonight, followed by a westward turn late Saturday.

Maximum sustained winds remain near 45 mph (75 km/h) with higher
gusts.  Gradual strengthening is forecast through Saturday,
followed by faster strengthening thereafter. Celia could become a
hurricane on Sunday.

Tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 45 miles (75 km)
to the north of the center.

The estimated minimum central pressure is 1003 mb (29.62 inches).

HAZARDS AFFECTING LAND
———————-
None.

Visible satellite imagery shows that Celia has an expansive cloud
shield, with a compact CDO feature and multiple elongated cloud
bands.  However, deep convection is disjointed and fairly limited
near the low-level center.  Dvorak intensity estimates from TAFB
and SAB are unchanged from six hours ago, and the CIMSS ADT
estimate has actually decreased during that time.  Therefore, the
initial intensity is left at 40 kt.

Celia’s center temporarily moved northward earlier today, but the
average motion over the past 12 hours is estimated to be
northwestward, or 305/8 kt.  A subtropical ridge extending westward
from northern Mexico should cause Celia to resume a west-
northwestward to westward motion but at a faster forward speed
through day 3.  The cyclone is expected to reach the southwestern
periphery of the ridge by day 4, which should cause Celia to turn
northwestward by the end of the forecast period.  The track model
spread is low, especially through day 3, and the NHC track forecast
is very close to the various consensus models.  This updated
forecast is a little north of the previous one during the first 24
hours to account for Celia’s recent northward jog.

High-resolution microwave SST data indicate that Celia’s center is
now moving over the coldest portion of Blas’s cold wake, which could
be contributing to the relative lack of central deep convection.
Celia will continue moving over the cold wake for another day or
so, and only gradual strengthening is anticipated in the short
term.  Warmer waters and low shear should allow faster
intensification to begin in 36-48 hours, with Celia likely
reaching its peak intensity in about 3 days.  Cooler waters should
then induce a gradual weakening trend on days 4 and 5.  In light of
the latest guidance, no significant changes were made to the
previous NHC intensity 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.
