Tropical Storm Richard slowly intensifying

Tropical Storm Richard is here, the seventeenth named storm of this very busy 2010 Atlantic hurricane season. Richard's formation puts 2010 in 6th place for the greatest number of named storms in the Atlantic since record keeping began in 1851. Only 2005 (28 named storms), 1933 (21 named storms), 1995 (19 named storms), 1887 (19 named storms), and 1969 (18 named storms) had more.

We won't have another hurricane hunter aircraft in Richard until 8pm tonight, so we will have to rely on satellite intensity estimates until then. The closest buoy to Richard is NOAA buoy 42057, which is on Richard's weak side about 100 miles from the heaviest thunderstorms. Winds at the buoy were just 18 mph, gusting to 22 mph, at 2:43pm EDT this afternoon. Recent satellite imagery shows that Richard is steadily organizing, with several curved spiral bands forming on the storm's south and east sides. The storm is bringing very heavy rain to Jamaica. Water vapor satellite loops show considerable dry air to the west and north of Richard, and the southwesterly upper-level winds over the storm are bringing some of this dry into the core of the storm, keeping all the heavy thunderstorm development confined to the east side of the center. The waters beneath Richard are very warm, 29°C, and Richard will begin taking advantage of these warm waters now that the shear is falling.


Figure 1. Afternoon satellite image of Richard.

Intensity forecast for Richard
The latest SHIPS model forecast predicts that wind shear over the Western Caribbean will remain in the low range, 5 - 10 knots, through Monday morning. As the storm moves westwards on Friday, it will position itself beneath an upper-level high pressure system, which will aid the storm's upper-level outflow. With water temperatures a very warm 29°C and warm waters extending to great depth, Richard should be able to attain at least Category 1 hurricane strength by Saturday. NHC is currently giving Richard a 11% chance of becoming a major Category 3+ hurricane. I believe the odds are higher, near 30%. The main inhibiting factor for intensification will be interaction with the north coast of Honduras, and the possibility of the dry air to the west of Richard getting wrapped into the core of the storm while it is trying to organize. A band of very strong upper-level winds associated with the jet stream will be over the Gulf of Mexico early next week, so it is likely that if Richard crosses into the Gulf of Mexico, the storm will steadily weaken.

Track forecast for Richard
The latest set of 8am EDT (12Z) model runs are similar to the previous set of runs, and don't help illuminate what the long-range fate of Richard might be. Steering currents are weak in the Western Caribbean, and will remain weak through Friday morning, resulting in a slow, erratic movement for Richard. Most of the models favor a southerly, then southwesterly path at 5mph or less over the next two days. This may bring the center of Richard very close to or over the northern coast of Honduras on Saturday or Sunday, as predicted by the GFS, UKMET, and NOGAPS models. These models then show Richard dissipating over Central America. A much different solution is offered by the ECMWF, HWRF and GFDL models, which foresee less of a southerly motion for Richard over the next two days, resulting in the storm missing the north coast of Honduras by one hundred miles or more. These models take Richard to the northwest across the tip of the Yucatan (GFDL and ECMWF models) or western tip of Cuba (HWRF model) on Sunday or Monday. The HWRF and GFDL models predict Richard will be a threat to the west coast of Florida on Tuesday. NHC takes the reasonable approach of predicting a path somewhere between these two extremes, with Richard crossing the Yucatan between Cozumel and the Belize/Mexico border. Residents of northern Honduras should anticipate the possibility that Richard will pass very close or strike Honduras on Saturday or Sunday. Very heavy rains of 4 - 8 inches are possible over the the weekend in coastal Honduras beginning Friday night or Saturday morning. The 11am EDT NHC wind probability forecast is giving the highest odds for tropical storm-force winds at Guanaja in Honduras, at 46%. Cozumel, Mexico is given a 42% chance, Key West a 6% chance, and Ft. Myers a 3% chance.

Invest 90L
A tropical wave that emerged off the coast of Africa yesterday (Invest 90L) has a modest amount of spin and some growing thunderstorm activity. Wind shear is a moderate 5 - 15 knots, and the waters are still warm enough to support tropical storm formation. NHC is giving the system a 30% chance of developing into a tropical depression by Saturday. By Sunday, 90L will encounter high wind shear of 20 - 40 knots, discouraging further development. This system is not a threat to cross the Atlantic and affect the Lesser Antilles or North America.

Typhoon Megi takes aim at China
Typhoon Megi continues it slow march towards China at 5 mph, and is expected to make landfall Saturday morning on the Chinese coast opposite from Taiwan. Megi has maintained strength as a Category 3 typhoon with 115 mph winds today, despite rising wind shear (now a moderate 10 - 20 knots) and cooling sea surface temperatures. Megi is moving slow enough and is large and powerful enough that it is probably upwelling cold water from the depths to the surface faster than it can move away, and these upwelling cool waters are keeping Megi from being a stronger storm. Wind shear will increase dramatically to 20 - 40 knots on Friday as the typhoon makes its final approach to the coast of China, and this shear should be high enough to reduce Megi to Category 1 status before landfall. Megi will still be a very large and powerful storm capable of causing considerable wind and storm surge damage even at Category 1 strength. However, heavy rain will likely be the storm's main threat, since it is moving slowly and is a huge storm. I expect Megi will be a billion-dollar disaster for China, mostly due to flooding from heavy rains. The outer rain bands of Megi are already affecting the coast of China near Taiwan, as seen on China's radar composite, as well as Taiwan radar.

The clean-up continues in the Philippines from Megi, which hit northern Luzon island on Monday morning at 3:30 UTC as a Category 5 super typhoon with sustained winds of 165 mph and a central pressure of 914 mb. Severe damage was done to Isabela Province in northern Luzon, and 19 deaths are being blamed on the storm. Considering most major typhoon that have hit the Philippine in recent year have killed hundreds and sometimes thousands of people, the low death toll from Megi is a testament to the excellent efforts by officials in the Philippines to get people out of harm's way in advance of the storm.

TropicalStormRichard's heading had turned eastward to SouthEast
from its previous heading of dueSouth
TS.Richard's average speed moving between its last 2 reported positions increased to ~3.3mph(~5.4km/h) from its previous moving speed of ~2.3mph(~3.8km/h)

Actually, due to the effects of rounding to the nearest tenth of a degree upon position changes of only a tenth of a degree, TS.Richard could have been nearly stationary for the past 3hours and traveled as little as a total of ~21miles southward over the past 15hours.

well 120 knots is Super Cyclone on the IMD scale after Very Severe Cyclonic Storm.


Phew! I am glad that's there system. I thought it was that they add another 'very...' for every 10 kts the storm grows or something, LOL! JK.

And I predict that this CATL low will become a tropical cyclone in my latest blog entry, October Tropical Trifecta. This is a rather detailed look at the three hot spots in the Atlantic basin. Enjoy, and feel free to leave comments.

But also, what the heck happened in the W-Pac? There have been 2 other tropical depressions pop up next to Typhoon Megi, and then we have yet another new system in the Indian Ocean. Tropics on two sides of the globe are blowing up! Wow!


With 6 areas of interest/depressions or higher labelled and one un labelled in the Central Atlantic it looks like September out there, not October. I guess this is why there's another little peak on the hurricane/tropical storm graph around October 20th.

My best guess, would be the remenets of Richard will hit Florida embedded within the Cold front. Could this become a SubTropical Storm YES. If this trough Stalls it could lead to a serious NorEAster moving up the EAst Coast of the ConUs toward the NorthEast. Just my thoughts.

VERY SEVERE CYCLONIC STORM GIRI (BOB04-2010)
8:30 AM IST October 22 2010
=============================================

At 3:00 AM UTC, The severe cyclonic storm over east central & adjoining northeast Bay of Bengal intensified into a very severe cyclonic storm. Very Severe Cyclonic Storm Giri moved northeastwards and lays centered over the northeast Bay of Bengal near 19.0N 93.0E, or about 150 kms south of Sittwe (Myanmar) and 110 kms west-southwest of Kyaukpyu (Myanmar), 240 kms south-southeast of Teknaf (Bangladesh) and 650 kms southeast of Digha (West Bengal, India).

The current environmental conditions and numerical weather prediction models suggest that the system would intensify further and move northeastwards and cross Myanmar coast between Sittwe (Myanmar) and Kyaukpyu (Myanmar) by this evening/night.

Since the system is likely to move towards north Myanmar and adjoining Bangladesh coasts, it is not expected to affect east coast of India.

Forecast and Intensity
=======================
9 HRS: 19.5N 93.5E - 90 knots (Very Severe Cyclonic Storm)
17 HRS: 20.0N 94.0E - 90 knots (Very Severe Cyclonic Storm)
33 HRS: 22.0N 95.5E - 30 knots (Deep Depression)

Very interesting look. Sure has the appearance of Richard embedded within a Trough. You all remember the conversation / arguement how a storm should not be labeled unless it was detached from the trough......LOL


That trough should continue eastward, killing off 90L, but letting an upper anticyclone build over our CATL low. Looks to me that this'll grow organized into 91L and then the next tropical cyclone once a more favorable anticyclonic ridge builds over 91L.
Member Since: Posts: Comments:
Tropical Cyclone Giri in the Bay of Bengal is probably much stronger than 85 knots with it's satellite representation. T numbers have been steadily increasing, now rather rapidly with an impressive eye. This post-monsoon Severe Tropical Cyclone isn't particularly unusual, but demonstrates the difficulty in long-range forecasting of these smallish TC's in an enclosed basin -- akin to the Gulf of Mexico.

I'd put Giri at 100 knots prior to landfall.

Yep, the ridge is too strong for much northerly movement, and if it did get closer to the Gulf of Mexico, Richard would be sheared apart. On its westerly course, I don't see many inhibitors to intensification and expect a hurricane at landfall. Seems 00Z GFDL says the same as HWRF.

I'm slowly starting to agree with a solution of the storm going through the Channel as a high end Category 2 or major, then slowly weakening as it speeds northeastwards towards Florida. That's a plausible scenario, based on the pattern and climatology. Gotta go help my father on fixing his 1930 old chevy.
