Rare late-season Eastern Pacific hurricane forms

Tropical Storm Kenneth formed over the weekend in the Eastern Pacific, and intensified into a hurricane late this morning. We are well past the date for the usual formation of the season's last storm, since the African waves spawned by the African monsoon, which serve as low pressure "seeds" to get the atmosphere spinning and trigger formation of more than half of the Eastern Pacific's storms, are rare this time of year. Kenneth formed from some unusual wave-like motions in the atmosphere over the Eastern Pacific that were not associated with African tropical waves. Since 1949, here have been just three Eastern Pacific named storms that formed after November 18. These three storms were an unnamed tropical storm on November 27, 1951; Tropical Storm Sharon on November 27, 1971; and Hurricane Winnie on December 5, 1983. None of these storms hit land, though the 1951 storm grazed the Baja. If Kenneth grows stronger than a 90 mph hurricane, it will surpass Hurricane Winnie of 1983 as the strongest Eastern Pacific storm so late in the season. Kenneth is moving westwards out to sea, and should not be a threat to land.

Atlantic's Invest 99L could become Subtropical Storm Tammy
In the Atlantic, Invest 99L, an extratropical storm in the middle Atlantic that is generating tropical storm-force winds, has the potential to transition into a subtropical storm over the next day or two. The storm currently lacks a well-defined surface circulation. If it develops one, 99L would be called Subtropical Storm Tammy. The storm is over waters of 26°C, and these waters will cool to 24°C by Tuesday, as 99L moves northeastwards out to sea. These water temperatures are near the limit of where a subtropical or tropical storm can form. The storm is not a threat to any land areas.

Surprisingly enough--or perhaps not--Kenneth has matured into a major Cat 3 hurricane, and he's expected to make it to Cat 4 status by this afternoon (although, frankly, he looks like he's already there). As I said earlier: incredible.

KENNETH CONTINUES TO INTENSIFY RAPIDLY. THE EYE HAS WARMED AND
BECOME MORE DISTINCT DURING THE LAST SEVERAL HOURS. IN
ADDITION...THE CONVECTIVE CLOUD PATTERN HAS CONSOLIDATED AND GAINED
SYMMETRY...AND KENNETH NOW HAS THE APPEARANCE OF A COMPACT MATURE
HURRICANE. DVORAK CLASSIFICATIONS AT 0600 UTC WERE 90 KT AND 102 KT
FROM SAB AND TAFB...RESPECTIVELY. HOWEVER...RECENT ADT VALUES AND A
SPECIAL CLASSIFICATION FROM TAFB REVEAL HIGHER ESTIMATES.
THEREFORE...THE INITIAL WIND SPEED IS SET AT 110 KT...AND THAT
COULD BE CONSERVATIVE
. THIS MAKES KENNETH A MAJOR HURRICANE...THE
LATEST ONE TO HAVE FORMED IN THE EASTERN NORTH PACIFIC BASIN IN THE
SATELLITE ERA.

INIT 22/0900Z 13.0N 112.8W 110 KT 125 MPH
12H 22/1800Z 13.0N 114.3W 120 KT 140 MPH
24H 23/0600Z 13.2N 116.1W 110 KT 125 MPH
36H 23/1800Z 13.6N 117.8W 90 KT 105 MPH
48H 24/0600Z 14.2N 119.4W 75 KT 85 MPH
72H 25/0600Z 15.1N 122.8W 55 KT 65 MPH

Nice dude, making stacks, what is your job title? Or what do you do for work?


And I remember at the start of the season when I was planning on doing a blog everyday. Glad I stopped, it would take me a solid hour and a half to get all my thoughts down and by that time satellite images had changed, new models were out, etc etc, it took way too much time for me to do.

One thing I might do just before the beginning of next season is my explanation/educational series of blogs I had planned on writing this year but never got around to finishing. You can read the first and only one written so far here


Meh. Lots of my blogs become obsolete as soon as I release them. Just because the models or satellite pictures change after you finish a blog, doesn't mean you have to go back and rewrite it. We assume people have enough competency to check the time the blog was written.

I read your blog back then, btw. I liked it a lot, and do hope you continue.

I work in the dairy at Wal Mart. I don't really like it, but I'm getting 8.25 an hour, which is good for someone with no bills. Gonna use that money to go to Ohio to visit a friend next year. Me, my dad, and brother are gonna go. Then when I get back, I'm going to try and find a job somewhere else and get me a car.

Yeah, but I had last year's blog finished at the same time. The reason is because it coincides with the end of the season.

Then again, I wasn't working 30 hours a week last year, either...

Well, my report for TD10 is done. Furnishing Jose's now:

Tropical Depression Ten

August 25 - August 27

Tropical Depression Ten was a tropical depression that dissipated over the eastern Atlantic without becoming a tropical storm.

A well-defined tropical wave emerged off the coast of Africa on August 22. The wave produced modest pressure falls at Praia in the Cape Verde Islands as it passed south of the archipelago. By 0300 UTC August 25, the low was sufficiently well-organized to be considered a tropical depression while centered about 500 miles west-southwest of the southern Cape Verde Islands. The synoptic environment was characterized by easterly to southeasterly vertical shear and dry air, both factors which appear to have arrested significant development of the tropical cyclone. Late on August 26, westerly shear increased as the cyclone moved northwest. Deep convection ceased near 0000 UTC August 27, and the depression appears to have dissipated at that time while located about 680 miles west of the southern Cape Verde Islands.

They are in places like Kansas, Oklahoma, and parts of Texas where that's true, but even squall lines in Alabama seem to have a strong diurnal component and tend to diminish somewhat after dark. The stange thing is that storms can remain very strong right up to the Mississippi/Alabama state line and then fall apart as they get here, in central Alabama. I have no idea why, but I've witnessed it many times.


Stay safe, at any rate!

Record rain floods outback.

Uluru to northwestern New South Wales has been flooded by some of the heaviest spring rain on record, cutting off some towns.

Tibooburra, in far northwestern NSW has amassed more than 80mm(3.15in) in 36 hours, its heaviest rain in four years. Falls of up to 100mm(3.94in) have also fallen in southern parts of the Northern Territory, including 90mm(3.54in) at Uluru.

This amount of rain is very unusual for this time of year, it is more typical of summer and early autumn, when moisture in the air is at its highest.

Tibooburra's 80mm(3.15in) is its heaviest November rain on record. Near Alice Springs, Curtin Springs and Jervois have both broken spring records with 50mm(1.97in) in a day and 90mm(3.54in) in two days.

Rain has now cleared from the Alice Springs district and is about to clear from far northwestern NSW as a low pressure trough edges slowly east.

This trough will continue to bring steady and heavy rain to central and northern NSW and western and southern Queensland as it slowly tracks east over the next four or five days. By Sunday some places will pick up well over 100mm(3.94in), most likely between about Roma, Tamworth and the Sunshine Coast. Much of this area has had a dry start to spring, now flooding is on the cards.

Keep all of us in the southern Plains and deep South in your prayers tomorrow. It looks like we are headed for a bad outbreak of storms, with some tornados almost inevitable. It was 83 degress in Montgomery today (which broke the old record by two degree) and it's stil 69 here now. All the ingedients are in place for trouble. The only saving grace is that the models are slowing down the front, which means storms may not reach central Alabama until dark, much better than the heat of the day. I know Kenneth is really interesting, but the risks closer to home have my full attention.

Architect of Reactor 3 warns of massive hydrovolcanic explosion
Posted by Mochizuki on November 19th, 2011 %uFFFD 67 Comments

Architect of Fukushima Daiichi Reactor 3, Uehara Haruo, the former president of Saga University had an interview on 11/17/2011.

In this interview, he admitted Tepco%u2019s explanation does not make sense, and that the China syndrome is inevitable.

He stated that considering 8 months have passed since 311 without any improvement, it is inevitable that melted fuel went out of the container vessel and sank underground, which is called China syndrome.



He added, if fuel has reaches a underground water vein, it will cause contamination of underground water, soil contamination and sea contamination. Moreover, if the underground water vein keeps being heated for long time, a massive hydrovolcanic explosion will be caused.

He also warned radioactive debris is spreading in Pacific Ocean. Tons of the debris has reached the Marshall Islands as of 11/15/2011.


While the situation at Fukushima remains dangerous, and the Japanese government will continue to lie like rugs, there does need to be some perspective here.

Between 1946 ands 1962, The United States conducted at least 105 atmospheric nuclear tests at the Pacific Proving grounds, in the mid Pacific. During this time, at least 210 megatons of nuclear bombs were set off, and total is probably much higher, since these are only ones the US has admitted to blowing up. During that time, there was extensive fallout all over the Pacific, with much of it drifting over North America. Some Pacific Islanders suffered illness and death from radioactive poisoning, and it's reasonable to suppose that there was a low-level, long term increase of blood cancers in North America as well. While, in retrospect, this was a horrible thing to do, we didn't kill all life in the Pacific and obviously didn't directly kill very many people who weren't close to the drop zones. The very worst case scenario for Fukushima is a release equal to about a three megaton bomb. Won't be a good thing if you live in northern Japan, but it's not going to kill us all either. Many more people die each year in Japan from radioactive gases from coal fired power plants than have or likely will die from this one reactor.
