TROPICAL STORM CELIA DISCUSSION NUMBER  14
NWS NATIONAL HURRICANE CENTER MIAMI FL       EP042016
800 PM PDT SAT JUL 09 2016

Celia has changed very little since the last advisory.  A small
central dense overcast persists over the low-level center, with an
elongated convective band wrapping around the southern and western
side of the circulation.  The initial intensity remains 55 kt based
on Dvorak estimates of T3.5 from TAFB and SAB.  Celia appears to
have escaped the coldest water of Hurricane Blas’s wake and is now
over sea surface temperatures warmer than 27 degrees Celsius.  In
addition, vertical shear is very low and is expected to remain low
for the next 5 days.  Therefore, more significant strengthening
(compared to the past few days) should begin soon and continue
during the next 2 to 3 days while the cyclone is over warm water.  A
gradual weakening trend should occur on day 3 and beyond. The NHC
intensity forecast is close to a blend of the SHIPS and LGEM
models and is very similar to the previous forecast.

Celia’s initial motion is westward, or 275/10 kt.  A continued
westward motion is expected for the next 48 hours while the cyclone
is located south of the subtropical ridge.  By day 3, Celia will be
situated along the southwestern periphery of the ridge and should
turn west-northwestward and northwestward at the end of the forecast
period.  The track guidance continues to be relatively stable and
tightly clustered from cycle to cycle, and the new NHC track
forecast is just an update of the previous one.

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.
