Ophelia stuck yet again

Ophelia is stuck in place yet again, but this time she threw anchor over some relatively warm water (83F)--right over the Gulf Stream, where a deep, 75-meter thick layer of warm water exists. As a result, Ophelia is slowly strengthening again, and long range radar out of Wilmington, NC is showing the beginnings of an inner eyewall of about 20 miles diameter trying to form inside Ophelia's 100-mile wide cloud-free center. The deep warm water should resist the mixing effect of her winds and prevent water cooler than 80F from upwelling and inhibiting Ophelia's strengthening, at least for the 12 - 18 hours that she is expected to remain stationary.

The latest hurricane hunter flight at 9:20 am EDT found about the same pressure as always, 989 mb, and unimpressive flight level peak winds of 66 knots on the northeast side. Ophelia is in reality a weaker tropical storm than advertised by the NHC; I'd estimate maximum winds near the surface are closer to 60 mph than the 70 mph advertised. Still, the storm is getting better organized, and surface winds may increase back to 70 mph later today, but not much higher. Although the shear is low (5 knots) and the upper-level outflow good, there is still too much dry air and cool water surrounding Ophelia to support anything stronger than a minimal 80 mph Category 1 hurricane. NHC is posting hurricane warnings, and this is reasonable, not so much for the expected wind damage (which should be low), but for the storm surge. Ophelia's winds have had a lot of time to pile up a big mound of water near her center, and the storm surge of 4 - 6 feet she will likely carry to shore in her current state as a tropical storm is more characteristic of a Category 1 hurricane.



The exact landfall point for Ophelia is much less important than for most hurricanes; Ophelia doesn't have the narrow concentrated area of winds that usually make the precise landfall point such a big deal. There will be a large area of the coast that will receive tropical storm force winds, which extend out about 160 miles from the center, an exceptionally large area for a tropical storm. Flooding from rain could be a problem in some places; areas near Wilmington, NC have already received 2 - 3 inches, and will get much more from this very wet storm. Fortunately, much of eastern North Carolina is under mild drought.


Figure 1. Rainfall estimate from the Wilmington radar. The estimates in northern NC at the top of the image are bogus.

Computer model forecasts
All of the computer model forecasts keep Ophelia puttering around her current location most of today, but then turn her north and then northeast just offshore Cape Fear, NC and accelerate her rapidly northeastward out to sea. Some of the models indicate that New England (particularly Cape Cod, MA) and Nova Scotia may receive tropical storm force winds from Ophelia on Friday and Saturday, respectively.

Elsewhere in the tropics
The rest of the tropics are quiet, and it is likely we will get about a one week break in the action. Next week, several of the long-range global models indicate that conditions for tropical storm formation are expected to improve over much of the tropical Atlantic.

Thanks for the ideas about salt water and the drying effect - that makes sense.

Still here! Wx is non-eventful! Steady light to moderate rain. Breezy with the ocassional gusts up to the mid 30's.

Somehow, I doubt we're going to get 15 inches of rain. I think we will be hard pressed to see 10.

yeah jed i do my own calculations as well and yesterday my calculations were close to dr.masters so we all disscussed it and he stated that the nhc has methods to smoth out the track from the wobbles so theur track and speed was accurate. so thats what i state from now on unless i see it overtly off. now ur right we are splitting hairs but i am just stating what they say the motion is.

Still no wind in SE England, looks like we will get some influence from the lows created by your old hurricanes Maria and Nate this weekend though

hey fsu im fascinted with storms to before you were born started with freddy in 79. just curious before i get back to
katrina cleanup after you chase do you leave after they hit or
do you stay and experience the whole deal, thats what gets me
with this excitement for astorm to hit look at abc news after they hit not so exciting when they are amajor. sorry dont mean to grouchy but as ive told my buddy lefty if you are going to experience it all a lot of people afterwards might could use your help. and please dont brag to much on the nhc mayfield 2
days ago on wwl out of no said they waited to long to issue wat
and warning a threat to no needs 72hrs not 36. as of 5p.m
look at archive on fri 30.0 88.5 thats al/mms. line moved to mth of ms. river 4am sat . sorry to be picky but we in this area get aggravated by people that just want to experience one part storm and hall tail to the ac when the main course sets in . keep up the tracking and the fascination but wish them away from any coastline god bless.

Lefty,
We may be splitting hairs here but you can calculate the track based on the officail positions. I do my own calculations and came up with 352 degrees. I suspect that either there has been too much rounding off of the official positions or the system is tending to track more northerly than the statements.

Queen - But I think that the people who read this Blog are not complete idiots. They are aware of the WX around them and have enough smarts to come in out of the rain. It reminds me of this radio commercial where this old man who sounds like he's 95 telling us to not do ANYTHING while you drive LOL

Henscolasc. Your coment is noted!

From this we must resolve that all who were not prepared in the tragedy in the gulf were complete idiots.If you however feel that safety reminders are not appropriate on DR. Masters Blog I suggest you take it up with him & the Yakuzza. I however feel it is far more appropriate than an hour of sports chit chat!

Thanks you for your valuable time!

Please be safe

Lefty,

Based on the NHC official positions over the past 12 hrs the track calculates out at 352 degrees not 345 degrees... despite what the discussion says. The 24hr movement calculates out to 323 degrees.

The disscusion calls it a TS but the public advisory now says it's a Cat 1 Hurricane.

As a stormchaser, Im jealous......and I know that people will take exception to my comments......everyone from charleston,SC north should have some fun tonight and tomorrow.....just keep up with the tornado warning and stay away from powerlines and trees that could fall....if your near the ocean, listen to the local officials, and move inland if you have too......if only for a day.......go visit some family........if you see GREEN LIGHTNING thats a sign of transformers blowing up.....means some strong winds are around.....for a stormchaser....this would be a piece of cake.....but it is serious so be very careful.......

weather dude, it doesn't matter if she makes landfall. her wind raddi is so large her strongest winds including those sustained hurricane force winds extend out 60+ miles from the cenetr. this is not like a regular cyclobe where those winds are clos to the cenetr and landfall would matter. thats the difference

the nhs had katrinas track down by fridayeng at 5pm update. i can give u thelink to check it iof u want. they were off by 10 miles on the landfall of katrina 90+hrs out. thats damn good if u tell me. now ophelia is a harder storm to predict as the storm is shallow and the models have not been any good at all

Based on the 21Z 5PM EDT position Ophelia has moved on a 12hr track of 352 degrees at 3 Kts. That would be just westward of due north based on the official track positions.

I guess the best will be sawn for construction but most will become your newspaper sometime next year if the can keep it fresh enough which they do by keeping it wet by spraying it constanly. It is fortunate that this part of Sweden has a lot of lakes and fresh water!!
Early this summer everybody was afraid of huge forest fires but nature helped by giving us one of the wettest summer in living memory.
Imagine going into a stormdamaged forest where everything is just a big mess and you never know which tree is free and which will be as thight as a string and snap. About 30 people have lost their lives during clearence work and most of the were very experienced forest workers.
