Good evening WU bloggers and friends well another hurricane season is upon us and the EPAC has gotten off to a quick start with 3 Tropical Storms, one of which has become a hurricane and major hurricane. Tonight the focus of attention is on newly formed Tropical Storm Cristina.
Convection is re-firing over the center of Tropical Storm Cristina after dry air entrainment from land earlier today caused the convection to warm. Structure looks symmetrical. Surrounding environment appears to be moist, with the more drier stable airmass to its northwest and Cristina is on the edge of an Upper Level Anti-Cyclone. All in all conditions look ripe for strengthening and I expect Cristina to become the seasons 2nd hurricane.
...DEPRESSION STRENGTHENS TO TROPICAL STORM CRISTINA...
8:00 PM PDT Mon Jun 9
Location: 15.5°N 102.2°W
Moving: W at 2 mph
Min pressure: 1004 mb
Max sustained: 40 mph
Cone of Uncertainty issued by the National Hurricane Center (NHC) shows Cristina continuing on a general movement towards the W/WNW and the WPC day 3 surface forecast chart shows this as well.
Should predictions from the major climate models hold true of an El Nino episode then I fully expect the EPAC Season to be an active one and the Atlantic to be relatively quiet. However, those of us who have been here long enough knows it only takes one.
Thanks for reading my blog post and have a Wunderful night.
