TROPICAL STORM HILDA DISCUSSION NUMBER 27
NWS CENTRAL PACIFIC HURRICANE CENTER HONOLULU HI EP102015
500 AM HST WED AUG 12 2015

PULSING DEEP CONVECTION CONTINUES IN THE EASTERN QUADRANT OF HILDA
AS STRONG VERTICAL WIND SHEAR PERSISTS. DATA FROM THE LAST PASSES
THROUGH HILDA BY U.S. AIR FORCE WEATHER RECONNAISSANCE AIRCRAFT
SUPPORTED AN INITIAL INTENSITY OF 40 KT. DVORAK CURRENT INTENSITY
VALUES FROM HFO AND JTWC CAME IN AT 3.0/45 KT…AND SAB HAD A 2.5/35
KT…WITH CIMSS ADT SUGGESTING 37 KT. A BLEND OF THESE VALUES IS IN
LINE WITH THE RECONNAISSANCE DATA…AND GIVEN THE PULSING OF THE
DEEP CONVECTION AND CONTINUED PARTIAL EXPOSURE OF THE LOW LEVEL
CIRCULATION…THE INITIAL INTENSITY IS LOWERED TO 40 KT. THE
RECONNAISSANCE DATA…A 0756 UTC ASCAT PASS…AND NEARBY NOAA BUOY
51004 OBSERVATIONS WERE USED TO FINE TUNE A REDUCTION IN THE WIND
AND SEAS RADII.

HILDA IS EXPECTED TO CONTINUE WEAKENING UNDER PERSISTENT VERTICAL
WIND SHEAR. THE LATEST CIMSS ANALYSIS ESTIMATES THE WESTERLY WIND
SHEAR TO BE NEARLY 40 KT…AND THE UPPER LEVEL TROUGH PRODUCING THE
STRONG UPPER LEVEL WINDS RESPONSIBLE FOR THE SHEAR WILL REMAIN IN
PLACE FOR THE NEXT FEW DAYS. THE FORECAST FOLLOWS ICON CLOSELY AND
IS LESS AGGRESSIVE WITH THE WEAKENING TREND THAN SHIPS AND LGEM.
HILDA IS EXPECTED TO WEAKEN TO A TROPICAL DEPRESSION TONIGHT OR
THURSDAY AND DEGENERATE TO A REMNANT LOW BY THURSDAY NIGHT.

HILDA WILL REMAIN IN A WEAK STEERING ENVIRONMENT FOR THE SHORT
TERM…ENSURING A SLOW MOVEMENT AS IT NEARS THE HAWAIIAN ISLANDS.
THE MID TO UPPER LEVEL TROUGH OVER THE REGION IS PRODUCING WESTERLY
WINDS ALOFT…WHILE A RATHER STRONG SURFACE HIGH FAR NORTH OF
HAWAII IS GENERATING A SHALLOW LAYER OF EASTERLY WINDS. U.S. AIR
FORCE WEATHER RECONNAISSANCE FOUND HILDA MAKING A SLOW DRIFT TO THE
NORTHWEST THROUGH MUCH OF THE NIGHT…AND THE INITIAL MOTION IS
TOWARD THE NORTHWEST…OR 305 DEGREES…AT 4 KT. THIS MOTION IS
EXPECTED TO HOLD TODAY…FOLLOWED BY A GRADUAL TURN TOWARD THE WEST
AND AN INCREASE IN FORWARD SPEED TONIGHT AND THURSDAY…AS HILDA
BECOMES INCREASINGLY SHALLOW AND STEERED BY THE LOW LEVEL TRADE WIND
FLOW. THE FORECAST TRACK CHANGED LITTLE FROM THE PAST ADVISORY AND
RUNS ALONG THE NORTHERN EDGE OF THE GUIDANCE ENVELOPE.

DUE TO UNCERTAINTY IN THE SHORT TERM…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.
