Super Typhoon Jelawat completed an eyewall replacement cycle over the past 24 hours, resulting in a slight weakening of the storm below Category 5 strength. Jelawat is now a Category 4 super typhoon with 155 mph winds. Fortunately, Jelawat is located well east of the Philippine Islands, and the storm is not expected to hit land while it is at major typhoon strength. Wind shear remains a light 5 - 10 knots over Jelawat, and the typhoon is over very warm ocean waters of 29°C that extend to great depth, so it is possible that Jelawat could regain Category 5 status later today. Satellite loops show an impressive, well-organized typhoon with a 25 mile-wide eye, and a large, symmetric area of heavy thunderstorms with cold cloud tops.

The models are fairly unified on the track of Jelawat. The typhoon is expected to move northwest, roughly parallel to the Philippines, then turn to the north and north-northeast a few hundred miles east of Taiwan. Jelawat will likely pass close to Okinawa, Japan as a Category 2 typhoon on Friday near 20 UTC, and could hit the main island of Honshu in Japan as a tropical storm over the weekend. Wind shear will begin increasing over Jelawat beginning on Thursday, which should cause a steady weakening of the storm.

Tropical Storm Miriam steadily weakening
In the Eastern Pacific, Tropical Storm Miriam is being attacked by high wind shear of 20 - 25 knots, and satellite imagery shows the storm is falling apart. High wind shear in excess of 30 knots will attack Miriam by Thursday, and Miriam should dissipate off the coast of Baja by Friday. Miriam's moisture is expected to stay out to sea.

Except for Nadine, the Atlantic is quiet
Never-say-die Tropical Storm Nadine continues to wander in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean, far from any land areas. Nadine may circle back to bother the Azores Islands on Monday, according to the latest run of the GFS model--though the model shows Nadine stopping short of a direct hit on the islands. Nadine has already been around as a named storm for thirteen days, and will still probably be around a week from now. According to the Tropical Cyclone FAQ, the average Atlantic named storm lasts about six days, and the all-time longest-lived Atlantic tropical cyclone lasted 27.75 days.

A small area of heavy thunderstorms has developed about 700 miles east-northeast of the northern Lesser Antilles Islands. This disturbance is under a high 20 - 30 knots of wind shear, is struggling with dry air, and none of the reliable computer models are predicting development. In their 8 am Tropical Weather Outlook, NHC gave the disturbance a 10% chance of developing into a tropical cyclone by Wednesday.

Long way out, but it does have that classic autumn storm appearance.


Don't models predict the future further out by analyzing based on what is normal for that time of year?

TROPICAL STORM NADINE DISCUSSION NUMBER 60
NWS NATIONAL HURRICANE CENTER MIAMI FL AL142012
1100 AM AST THU SEP 27 2012

SATELLITE IMAGERY SHOWS THAT THE CONVECTION ASSOCIATED WITH NADINE
HAS MOVED CLOSER TO THE CIRCULATION CENTER. HOWEVER...THE OVERALL
CONVECTIVE PATTERN IS A LITTLE RAGGED AT THIS TIME. SATELLITE
INTENSITY ESTIMATES FROM TAFB AND SAB ARE UNCHANGED SINCE 6 HR
AGO...SO THE INITIAL INTENSITY REMAINS 50 KT. THE CIRRUS OUTFLOW
IS FAIR IN THE NORTHERN SEMICIRCLE AND POOR ELSEWHERE.

NADINE HAS TURNED WEST-SOUTHWESTWARD DURING THE PAST SEVERAL HOURS
WITH THE INITIAL MOTION NOW 240/6. THE STORM IS ON THE SOUTH SIDE
OF A DEEP-LAYER RIDGE...WHICH IS FORECAST TO MOVE EASTWARD DURING
THE NEXT 48-72 HR. THIS WILL ALLOW NADINE TO TURN NORTHWESTWARD
AND NORTHWARD AS IT MOVES BETWEEN THE RIDGE AND A MID/UPPER-LEVEL
LOW CURRENTLY SEEN IN WATER VAPOR IMAGERY NEAR 29N48W. THE TRACK
GUIDANCE IS IN GOOD AGREEMENT DURING THIS PART OF THE FORECAST
PERIOD. AFTER THAT...THE GUIDANCE BECOMES VERY DIVERGENT. THE
GFS...GFS ENSEMBLE MEAN...GFDL...AND HWRF FORECAST NADINE TO MOVE
SLOWLY EASTWARD TO NORTHEASTWARD ALONG THE SOUTHERN EDGE OF THE
WESTERLIES AS A TROUGH PASSES NORTH OF THE STORM. THE UKMET...
ECMWF...CANADIAN...AND NOGAPS FORECAST A RIDGE TO BUILD NORTH AND
NORTHWEST OF NADINE IN THE WAKE OF THE WESTERLY TROUGH...WHICH
WOULD STEER THE STORM BACK TOWARD THE SOUTH OR SOUTHWEST. THE
TRACK FORECAST CONTINUES TO SPLIT THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THESE
EXTREMES AND SHOWS A SLOW MOTION AT 96-120 HR. THE NEW FORECAST
TRACK LIES NEAR THE VARIOUS CONSENSUS MODELS THROUGH 72 HR...AFTER
WHICH IT LIES WEST OF THE CONSENSUS MODELS.

THE GLOBAL MODELS FORECAST NADINE TO INTERACT WITH THE
MID/UPPER-LEVEL LOW NEAR 29N48W DURING THE FORECAST PERIOD...WITH
THE TWO SYSTEMS POSSIBLY MERGING BY 96-120 HR. IN ADDITION...SMALL
SHORTWAVE TROUGHS ROTATING AROUND THE LOW COULD ALSO INTERACT WITH
THE STORM. WHILE THE GLOBAL MODELS FORECAST INCREASING UPPER-LEVEL
WINDS NEAR NADINE...IT IS POSSIBLE THAT THE SHORTWAVE TROUGHS COULD
PARTLY SHIELD NADINE FROM THE RESULTING SHEAR. THE STATISTICAL
INTENSITY GUIDANCE IS FORECASTING A STRONGER STORM THAN IT DID
DURING THE LAST ADVISORY CYCLE...WITH THE SHIPS AND LGEM MODELS NOW
5-10 KT HIGHER THAN THEY WERE 6 HR AGO. DUE TO THE UNCERTAINTY IN
THE AMOUNT OF SHEAR...AND THE LIKELIHOOD THAT NADINE WILL MOVE OVER
COOLER SEA SURFACE TEMPERATURES AFTER 36 HR...THE NEW INTENSITY
FORECAST CONSERVATIVELY STAYS CLOSE TO THE PREVIOUS FORECAST. THE
NEW FORECAST IS STRONGER THAN THE FLORIDA STATE SUPERENSEMBLE...BUT
IS WEAKER THAN SHIPS...LGEM...AND THE INTENSITY CONSENSUS.

FORECAST POSITIONS AND MAX WINDS

TROPICAL STORM MIRIAM DISCUSSION NUMBER 23
NWS NATIONAL HURRICANE CENTER MIAMI FL EP132012
800 AM PDT THU SEP 27 2012

ENHANCED AND SHORTWAVE INFRARED IMAGERY INDICATE THAT MIRIAM IS
WEAKENING RAPIDLY...AND ALL THAT REMAINS OF THE ASSOCIATED DEEP
CONVECTION IS A SMALL PATCH LOCATED ABOUT 110 MILES TO THE NORTH OF
THE CENTER. BASED ON A COMPROMISE OF THE DVORAK INTENSITY ESTIMATES
FROM TAFB AND SAB...THE INITIAL INTENSITY IS LOWERED TO 35 KT...
WHICH COULD BE GENEROUS. SHARPLY DECREASING SEA SURFACE
TEMPERATURES AND A RATHER HOSTILE WIND SHEAR ENVIRONMENT SHOULD
WEAKEN THE CYCLONE TO A DEPRESSION LATER TODAY. MIRIAM IS THEN
EXPECTED TO BECOME A POST-TROPICAL REMNANT LOW TONIGHT...WITH
DISSIPATION OCCURRING IN 3 DAYS OR LESS...AS INDICATED BY THE SHIPS
MODEL AND THE LGEM.

THE INITIAL MOTION ESTIMATE IS 315/5. DURING THE NEXT 24 HOURS...
MIRIAM IS EXPECTED TO SLOW DOWN AND TURN WESTWARD IN THE LOW-LEVEL
STEERING FLOW PRODUCED BY THE EASTERN PACIFIC SUBTROPICAL RIDGE TO
THE NORTH. AFTERWARD...THE CYCLONE IS FORECAST TO DRIFT A LITTLE
LEFT OF DUE WEST IN THE WEAK EAST-NORTHEASTERLY MARINE-LAYER
STEERING CURRENT BEFORE DISSIPATING IN 96 HOURS...OR LESS. THE NHC
FORECAST IS AN UPDATE OF THE PREVIOUS ADVISORY AND CLOSELY FOLLOWS
THE TVCE MODEL CONSENSUS AND THE FLORIDA STATE SUPERENSEMBLE.

Should surpass his ACE early tomorrow morning.

It appears Nadine is going to get cut off by another building ridge overhead in about 7 days, which will cuase her to stall for a day then get shoved back south, and then we will have to wait another 5-7 days for the next big trough to destroy the ridge keeping Nadine down in the Atlantic still, and then that would give nadine another couple of days to get carried out by the trough... Basically were going to be dealing with Nadine for another 15 days... UGH. Advisory #116 Here we come...

Quoting quasistationary:


Odds of El Ni�o ease, but risk remains
Link

I know there above norm. However we are in a neutral (warm biased) state. All the reports have always said "near" El Nino thresholds. You're not going to get a full El Nino while this keeps fluctuating:

Point well taken. So we are in warm-neutral, "not-quite El Nino" conditions. Is it your claim that the official NOAA definition of "EL Nino" is defined such that the associated atmospheric conditions will change like throwing a switch when the definition is satisfied? Alternately, perhaps it is more of a continuum that becomes highly non-linear as we consider the effects of stronger El Nino states? Personally I would favor the latter.

Also, I would appreciate if you could expand on your comment, "It isn't", in your initial post that I reproduced below. I enjoy these types of discussions, but simple assertions like that are not useful and actually silly, as in: "It is", "It isn't", "Yes. It is", "No, it isn't"...it really goes nowhere you see.

For context, just in case you missed it, the previous discussion was comparing the importance of the locations of tropical cyclogenesis this season to the area where the greatest ACE has been recorded.

Quoting quasistationary:

Quoting guygee:
All good points, thanks. The shift in where all the energy is being released is the most important aspect, that makes a lot of sense to me. Also the emphasis that it is an El Nino year, albeit a weak one...not a complete killer.

Interesting you should mention higher Sahel rainfall...perhaps tangential to your point, but it reminds me that William M. Gray dropped early Sahel rainfall out of his bag of tricks a long time ago.

It isn't, nor has there been an El Nino yet.

Quoting wxchaser97:

I agree with Miriam should be downgraded and then dissipate soon. I didn't know we got a new storm called Nadone. Nadine is organizing and the winds may come up even more.

Nadone as in Not done, I guess.

Jelawat still looks like a very strong (Cat. 4) typhoon. Miriam should be downgraded to a TD because it looks horrible, and Nadone seems to be organizing.

The log in problem is back this morning.

OK, true, warm-neutral, no El Nino declared in the official 3 month average, but all Nino region SSTs above average.

Odds of El Nio ease, but risk remains

I know there above norm. However we are in a neutral (warm biased) state. All the reports have always said "near" El Nino thresholds. You're not going to get a full El Nino while this keeps fluctuating:

People actually watch that Gar-bage ?

Dats a spookie thought.

Thought is responsible for all you see save for Nature.

Consider that or listen here.


I never watch it ... cant stand the arguments in that show .... Just that I have seen how a debate on politics goes, on here endless arguments about politics ,leading to arguments on religion and morality . Personally I don't debate those items as, if you came from the area of the world I come from it turns to violence and deep hatred, where I have had to state my religion before getting a job due to discrimination that occurs there....

I am completely in tune with nature I was brought up on a small farm less than a mile from a beach, and was brought up to respect the beautiful and volatile world that we are lucky to belong to And we are not the overlords on this planet ,nature is in charge ,we may think we are ...

94E up to 60%.

SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS ASSOCIATED WITH A BROAD AREA OF LOW
PRESSURE LOCATED ABOUT 400 MILES SOUTH-SOUTHWEST OF MANZANILLO
MEXICO HAVE BECOME BETTER ORGANIZED THIS MORNING. ENVIRONMENTAL
CONDITIONS APPEAR CONDUCIVE FOR A TROPICAL DEPRESSION TO FORM DURING
THE NEXT COUPLE OF DAYS AS IT MOVES NORTH-NORTHWESTWARD AT 10 TO 15
MPH. THIS SYSTEM HAS A HIGH CHANCE...60 PERCENT...OF BECOMING A
TROPICAL CYCLONE DURING THE NEXT 48 HOURS. LOCALLY HEAVY RAINS ARE
POSSIBLE ALONG PORTIONS OF THE WEST COAST OF MEXICO DURING THE NEXT
COUPLE OF DAYS.

Morning all,

Been another wet one here in the UK, though forecasts are suggesting the spawn of Nadine may be reduced to scattered showers. There have been reports of rivers reaching their peak levels and more flooding in the north of England:

BBC report on flooding

Because of the large amount of water entering the rivers here, the Environment Agency has still got 43 flood warnings that are valid, again mostly for the northeast and northwest:

Environment Agency

Pretty sure I speak for the whole of the UK when I say that we've had enough of flooding for one year!

Heaviest Summer rains in 30 years......

Bad stuff there.

Hope things settle down soon. The UK has had a Bad Year so far.
