Category 4 Typhoon Vicente hits China

Typhoon Vicente powered ashore about 60 miles (100 km) southwest of Macao, China Monday at 19:30 UTC as a dangerous Category 4 typhoon with 135 mph winds. The typhoon brought sustained winds of 58 mph with a peak wind gust of 83 mph to Hong Kong, and sustained winds of 55 mph with a peak wind gust of 76 mph to Macao. No deaths are being blamed on the typhoon, but 118 were injured, and the storm is dumping very heavy rains over Southeast China that will cause serious flooding.

The strongest typhoon to hit Hong Kong in 13 years swirled into southern China as a tropical storm Tuesday, still potent enough for mainland authorities to order the evacuation of tens of thousands of people and warn residents of possible flooding.

A hurricane forecasters' nightmare
Vicente was an example of a hurricane forecaster's nightmare. In six hours, Vicente strengthened from a Category 1 typhoon with 80 mph winds to a Category 4 storm with 135 mph winds. Even twelve hours before this remarkable burst of intensification, there was little indication that Vicente would undergo rapid intensification. It is very fortunate the the typhoon missed a direct hit on the heavily populated areas of Hong Kong and Macao, because there was no time to evacuate all the people who would have needed to leave for the impact of a Category 4 storm--particularly since the storm hit at night. If a similar type of storm were to affect a vulnerable area of the U.S. coast such as the Florida Keys, New Orleans, Houston/Galveston, or Tampa Bay, the death toll could easily be in the thousands. I have great hopes that the Hurricane Forecast Improvement Program (HFIP), currently in year three of a ten-year effort aimed at improving hurricane intensity forecasts by 50%, will be able to give us tools to be able to predict rapid intensification events like Vicente's several days in advance. However, we are still many years from being able to predict such events, and the hurricane forecasters' nightmare storm is still a very real possibility.

Atlantic to get more active?
NHC is giving a disturbance along a frontal boundary 600 miles east-northeast of Bermuda a 10% chance of developing into a tropical depression, but this system is not a threat to any land areas. Recent runs of both the GFS and NOGAPS models have predicted that tropical waves coming off the coast of Africa late this week and early next week could show some development. These predictions have not been consistent, but we are getting towards the time of year when we need to start watching the tropical waves coming off of Africa.

Sand in the Sahara Desert doesn’t always stay put. Tiny particles can be lofted into the air, eventually landing elsewhere in that vast sandy desert. Sometimes dust from the Sahara traverses an entire ocean. That was what happened in July 2012, when a dust plume extended across the Atlantic Ocean toward the Caribbean Sea and Florida.

This color-coded map is made from data collected by the Ozone Mapper Profiler Suite (OMPS) on the Suomi National Polar-orbiting Partnership (S-NPP) satellite. It shows relative aerosol concentrations across the Atlantic Ocean on July 21, 2012. Lower concentrations appear in yellow, and greater concentrations appear in dark orange-brown. Areas in grey represent data that have been screened out due to sunglint (reflection of sunlight) or other factors.

The record number of named storms in the early part of the season skews the numbers so to speak.....Everyone, including CSU/Gray in the Aug 15th update are going to have to up the numbers a notch. At the end of the day, trajectory and landfall is what matters most. I don't remember the names of too many of the fish storms from past seasons unless they became super impressive Cat 4-5's which are pretty to look at in the open Atlantic away from land.

... Strong thunderstorms to affect western Harford... western Carroll
and northern Baltimore counties...

At 427 PM EDT... strong thunderstorms were located along a line
extending from 8 miles west of Lineboro to 3 miles east of Maryland
Line... moving south at 25 mph.

Locations impacted include Manchester... Jarrettsville... Hampstead...
Westminster... Fallston... Bel Air... Pleasant Hills and Cockeysville.

These storms are producing frequent cloud to ground lightning. Move
indoors immediately for your safety. If you can hear thunder... you
are close enough to be struck by lightning.

Heavy rain with these storms will reduce visibilities to below one
mile and may cause ponding of water on roadways.

Wind gusts of 40 to 50 mph and small hail can be expected with these
storms.

If the windmills are killing them it has to be because of some weird distortion in the wind field...


Who knows - could be - but are they flying into the blades from the back,through the wake turbulence (after al ATC do seperate Aircraft departures/arrivals because of this) or, from the front, through the induction field?

Statement as of 3:38 PM CDT on July 24, 2012

... Tropical funnel clouds possible...

At 3:30 PM... the National Weather Service has received a couple of
reports of funnel clouds in the vicinity of I-10 in Beaumont
Texas.

A very moist and unstable tropical airmass is in place across the
area. Meanwhile... the vertical wind profile over the area is light
and variable. These conditions are favorable for the development
of tropical funnel clouds... especially where rain cooled
boundaries... known as outflow boundaries... and the seabreeze
collide.

These tropical funnel clouds are usually short-lived and do not
reach the ground. If The Funnel cloud becomes more severe and
reaches the ground... minor damage may occur... and a Tornado
Warning will likely be issued.

Stay tuned for later statements and updates on this weather
situation.

It technically meets the criteria to become a tropical storm right now. Convection waned earlier this morning but refired a little while later.

If Chris can do it in 21C waters, 98L can do it in 25.

Very true... If this was over warmer waters a small wane in convection would be no big deal, it would easily refire, but it's much harder for storms to do that this far north... Still if it doesn't get much worse we may see 60% at 8PM.
