Fred fading; halfway point of hurricane season reached

Hurricane Fred peaked in intensity yesterday afternoon, attaining Category 3 strength with 120 mph winds. It is quite unusual to have such a powerful system so far east in the Atlantic, and Fred is only the third major hurricane to exist east of 35W. Fred is also the strongest hurricane so far south and east in the data record. However, this type of system would have been difficult to document before satellite pictures began in the 1960s.

Fred's glory is past, and the storm is on a downslide now, thanks to moderate wind shear of 15 - 20 knots and dry air eating into the hurricane's southwest side. The shear and the dry air will increase over the next few days, with the shear rising above 40 knots by Monday morning. Sea surface temperatures (SSTs) will also cool to near the 26.5°C threshold needed to sustain a tropical cyclone. The combination of high shear, dry air, and cool SSTs will likely kill Fred by Tuesday.

Elsewhere in the tropics
An upper-level low pressure system has moved over Texas and is expected to spawn a surface low pressure system along the Texas Gulf of Mexico coast on Friday. This low will probably have characteristics of both a tropical and extratropical storm. The surface low is likely to move northeastward and move ashore near the Texas/Louisiana border region on Saturday or Sunday. There will be some high wind shear to the west of the low (shear is currently a high 25 knots), so it is uncertain whether this low will be capable of developing into a tropical cyclone. Regardless, this storm will bring heavy rain capable of causing flooding--and help alleviate the exceptional drought conditions over Southeast Texas.

Early next week, we should be alert for tropical storm development over the waters between the Bahamas and North Carolina, along an old frontal zone. None of the reliable models are forecasting tropical storm development in this area or in the Gulf of Mexico, though.


Figure 2. The climatological halfway point of the Atlantic hurricane season is today, September 10.

Halfway point of hurricane season
September 10 marks the halfway point of the Atlantic hurricane season. Despite a late start (Tropical Storm Ana did not form until August 15, the latest start to a hurricane season since 1992), our number of storms has been near average. An average Atlantic hurricane season has 5 named storms, 3 hurricanes, and 1 intense hurricane by the midpoint of the season. So far this year, we've had 6 named storms, 2 hurricanes, and 2 intense hurricanes. A better measure of hurricane activity that takes into account their destructive power is the Accumulated Cyclone Energy (ACE) index. ACE for an individual storm is computed by squaring the maximum sustained winds of the storm at each 6-hourly advisory, and summing up over the entire lifetime of the storm. As of 5am EDT this morning, the seasonal ACE tally was 37.5. This number should rise to around 40 by the end of the day, thanks to the presence of Hurricane Fred. Over the period 1950 - 2005, the average ACE index for a half-season was 51, so 2009 ranks about 20% below average for the halfway point of the season. But when compared to the hurricane seasons we've been having since the current active hurricane period began in 1995, this year has been quite inactive. Between 1995 and 2008, the average ACE index for the halfway point of the season was 72. Thus, 2009 is about 45% less active than what we've been accustomed to over the past 14 years.

We've been lucky this year that the steering currents have aligned to keep our two major hurricanes, Bill and Fred, out to sea. What will the rest of the season have in store for us? I'll present an analysis on Friday.

Twenty years ago on this date
On September 10, 1989, the strong tropical wave that had moved off the coast of Africa the previous day acquired an organized circulation at the surface and began building a concentrated area of heavy thunderstorms near its center. A new tropical depression, the 12th of the season, was born. Moving westward at 20 mph, the depression brought strong, gusty winds and heavy rain showers to the Cape Verdes Islands as it passed to the south. Forecasters at the National Hurricane Center predicted that the steadily organizing tropical depression would strengthen into a tropical storm within the next day or two. The next name on the list of Atlantic tropical storm names for 1989: Hugo.

I don't know where Cad is from but here's a sense of Ritas wind field. Although I am not too sure she didn't have hurricane winds farther. But heres what they say.

Yea, they expect use to kill our lawns because the lakes have not stored enough water. People are losing grass, shrubs and some trees to drought. Not used to california type restrictions. Worse since 1950's around here. When you here about flooding in texas next few days, don't feel too bad it's how droughts end historically.

Rain chances up in Cental Texas. Spotty so far but next 24 hours looks good. Some areas of drought in E and S Texas have gotten beneficial rain and next few days looks good. The weather pattern has changed.

After Rita, we drove down to Mamma's over the Columbus Day break (NM schools are really different then Texas schools.) I remember walking out in the pastures around there and being attacked by fleas. Yes, fleas! It was just weird. There weren't any cows or horses back there, but where ever you walked, there were fleas. Also, all of the pear trees were blooming, and it was October. On the drive down we could see them in bloom, and sure enough, Mom's was blooming, too.

Maybe there is something to this insect thing.

I'm off to bed- Good night all.


Good night.

F4Phantom,

We have some old, old, family land on Cow Bayou in Orange county. It is on the only part of the bayou that was never dredged - which is a pretty unusual thing for that county. No logging for years and years. It was just beautiful with some swampy areas and some hardwood. We had been working hard for years to restore it to a pre-tallow tree state as only you from that part of the country can understand. Native trees were coming back that had been in decline. There were deer, bobcats, even at least one wolf. My old grandfather who was born near the turn of the last century saw and heard him, and he remembered wolves from his youth. What Rita did to that little wood is just unbelievable.

My best girlfriend had several giant oaks in her house. It is a fearsome thing what a hurricane can do.

I know you folks from PR understand what I mean, too!

I actually asked about an AOI on StormW's blog, and his (IMO, correct) answer is that there was nothing there to tag yet. Tagging an AOI because a model or two suggest possible development is a bad practice. Remember, until yesterday, only the NAM model had anything even kinda tropical developing, and the NAM is typically horrible with cyclogenesis.

I apologize if you got blasted by anyone on the blog, though. I will be the first (actually, one of the first thousand...) to say that this blog can be extremely - and unnecessarily - brutal to people during peak season or regarding close-to-home situations. People get their emotions invested too much. That is why unless I have something to add, or its quieter (like the late evenings), I lurk more than I post. If I need to ask a question, I ask it in PM to someone who is more knowledgeable than I am. I like to think I've kept up a fairly knowledgeable rep, and avoided the dreaded "troll" tag because of that.

The whole "troll" tag gets tossed around a bit much now, and many people are using it to signify anyone they disagree with. A troll is someone who posts something, knowing good and well that it is factually incorrect, just for the reason to get a reaction out of someone. Lately, they have been succeeding quite often.
thanks, That is something I can agree with. If someone post something a little over the top but possible we should either ignore or post data that contradicts. Force them to post supporting data. From what I can tell many people who post on this blog don’t even bother to read JM daily blog they are posting comments to. I would call all of them trolls, not the people who follow tropics and post predictions based on experience and pick up on some of the possibilities he suggest.

I'm still catching up too. But the day we left for Gustav we had to kill a bunch of ants in the kitchen before we left. BUT Gustav missed. But a week later Ike didn't. Lol. Sorry I'm still no help at all.
