TROPICAL STORM HILDA DISCUSSION NUMBER 26
NWS CENTRAL PACIFIC HURRICANE CENTER HONOLULU HI EP102015
1100 PM HST TUE AUG 11 2015

DEEP CONVECTION HAS BEEN PULSING WITHIN THE EASTERN SEMICIRCLE OF
HILDA…WITH THE LOW LEVEL CIRCULATION BRIEFLY EXPOSED EARLIER
TODAY UNDER THE INFLUENCE OF STRONG VERTICAL WIND SHEAR. US AIR
FORCE RECONNAISSANCE AIRCRAFT FOUND THE LOW LEVEL CENTER WOBBLED
EASTWARD AS DEEP CONVECTION REDEVELOPED IN THE PAST SEVERAL
HOURS…AND MAXIMUM WINDS IN THE NORTHEAST QUADRANT CAME IN AT 50
KT…WHILE WIND RADII WERE FOUND TO BE SMALLER THAN EARLIER
FORECASTS. THUS…THE INITIAL INTENSITY WAS LOWERED TO 50 KT…AND
THE WIND RADII WERE DECREASED.

HILDA PERFORMED A LOOPING WOBBLE THIS EVENING…CAUSING THE CENTER
TO BRIEFLY SHIFT EASTWARD. A SLOW WEST-NORTHWEST MOTION SHOULD BE
UNDERWAY WITH THE INITIAL MOTION SET AT 290/2 KT. HILDA IS IN A
REGION OF WEAK STEERING CURRENTS. A MID TO UPPER LEVEL TROUGH OVER
THE REGION IS PRODUCING WESTERLY WINDS ALOFT…WHILE A RATHER
STRONG SURFACE HIGH FAR TO THE NORTH IS PRODUCING A SHALLOW LAYER
OF EASTERLY WINDS. AS A RESULT…HILDA IS EXPECTED TO MOVE TOWARD
THE WEST-NORTHWEST SLOWLY OVER THE NEXT DAY OR SO THEN TURN TOWARD
THE WEST AND ACCELERATE AS THE SYSTEM BECOMES INCREASINGLY SHALLOW
AND STEERED BY THE LOW LEVEL TRADE WIND FLOW. THE TRACK FORECAST
WAS SHIFTED NORTHWARD SLIGHTLY AND RUNS NEAR THE MIDDLE OF THE
GUIDANCE ENVELOPE.

STEADY WEAKENING IS EXPECTED. ACCORDING TO CIMSS…VERTICAL WIND
SHEAR IS AROUND 37 KT FROM THE WEST. THE UPPER LEVEL TROUGH
PRODUCING THIS WIND SHEAR WILL REMAIN IN PLACE DURING THE NEXT FEW
DAYS…AND HILDA WILL CONTINUE TO WEAKEN. THE FORECAST CLOSELY
FOLLOWS THE ICON AND IS NOT AS AGGRESSIVE AS THE SHIPS GUIDANCE.
HILDA IS EXPECTED TO WEAKEN TO A TROPICAL DEPRESSION ON THURSDAY AND
BECOME A REMNANT LOW BY THURSDAY NIGHT OR FRIDAY.

DUE TO UNCERTAINTY IN THE SHORT TERM TRACK…THE TROPICAL STORM
WATCH WILL REMAIN POSTED FOR THE BIG ISLAND OF HAWAII.

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.
