98L may develop this weekend; 97L no threat

A tropical wave located about 350 miles east of the Lesser Antilles Islands (Invest 98L) is headed west-northwest at about 10 - 15 mph, and is a threat to develop into a tropical depression this weekend. The disturbance has a modest amount of spin and a large amount of heavy thunderstorms, as seen on satellite loops and Barbados radar. The thunderstorms have shown more organization this morning, but there is no obvious surface circulation visible on satellite imagery. This morning's ASCAT pass showed top winds of 30 - 35 mph near 15°N, 55°W. Wind shear is a high 20 - 30 knots over 98L, the atmosphere is moist, and ocean temperatures are a very warm 30°C. With wind shear expected to diminish on Saturday to the moderate range, 10 - 20 knots, 98L may be able to develop into a tropical cyclone this weekend. The disturbance has a high amount of support for development among the reliable computer models. The NOGAPS model predicts 98L will develop into a tropical depression or tropical storm on Sunday, about 400 hundred miles north of Puerto Rico. The GFS model predicts 98L will develop on Saturday, when the center will be very close to the northernmost Lesser Antilles Islands. The ECMWF model predicts a more westerly path for 98L into the southeast Bahama Islands, with development delayed until Monday. The models are unified in forecasting that 98L will turn to the north by Monday and be drawn into a trough of low pressure. It does not appear that 98L will be a threat to the U.S. In their 8 am Tropical Weather Outlook, NHC gave 98L a 50% chance of becoming a tropical cyclone by Saturday morning. A hurricane hunter aircraft is scheduled to visit 98L on Friday afternoon.

Invest 97L east of the Bahamas
A tropical wave located about 250 miles east of the central Bahama Islands (Invest 97L) is headed slowly southwards. The disturbance is well-organized, with a developing surface circulation and a respectable area of heavy thunderstorms, as seen on satellite loops. Wind shear is a high 20 knots over 97L, and the shear has pushed all the storm's heavy thunderstorms to its east side. Shear is expected to increase sharply later today as a cold front overtakes the system. This cold front should be capable of destroying 97L by Friday.

..yes true but, with cheap prices for their goods, no one will stop buying the goods untill a worldwide cry goes out for them to stop their pollution..and we all know That wont happen anytime soon.


Then we're all going to die pretty soon, and not of ripe old age. Quit buying from China, or we're dead. It's just that simple.

Quoting Neapolitan:
There is definitely such a thing as "dry" snow, as well as "wet" snow. The "average" snow-to-liquid-water equivalent is about 10:1 (that is, 10" of "average" snow if melted would yield 1" of water). Wet snows can have ratios as low as 4:1 or 5:1. while dry snows can on occasion go as high as 30:1. (FWIW, snow skiers love dry, loosely-packed powder.)
Interesting! How does this happen? Does the relative humidity in the air along with air temperature create the different types of snow?

I go with the glitch, although 98L has been growing more and more organized throughout the past 36 hours. A renumber tonight is plausible, but this year is just full of glitchiness and poor calls.

Short version of Iris 95?


Looks possible, tough Iris moved almost completely north and only brushed the waters of the Caribbean, I don't think 98L will move completely north, it should retain some westward motion.

I am watching each year, how the tropical systems react to the warming globe,wondering IF..the hurricanes will get stronger and meaner as the temps go up..i sure hope not


Nah, it's hrder for them to get stronger because everything else is too... not only the environmental ingredients that combine to promote strengthening of a storm, but also those that destroy it. That's why storms aren't getting as strong as they used to be, but they are getting more intense. That's why that IKE scale is much more forward thinking than this aged Saffir-Simpson one. Usually a storm can't mix its winds to the surface before something from the environment gets to it, but it can maintain and further solidify its structure in the meantime; plump itself up. Such was the case with Isaac, and with Irene.

I don't know, really, but that is my thought. We'll be seeing less categor 4/5 storms, and more intense monsoonal types. Even Debby had the rains characteristic of a storm stronger than a moderate TS.

Afternoon all... breezes are freshening here in Nassau this afternoon, which to me suggests 97L may be deepening.

It seems a lot more likely to me now than it did a couple days ago that we'll get a TC out of 97L, and that's mainly because I'm thinking it will drift far enough south to get into the "zone" for increased development potential. The models mostly seem to be forecasting a pretty logical outcome, especially in the short term.

The way the NHC is handling 97L/TD16 is making me oddly angry. The numbers are there, and have been since before they even classified the low a TD, for it to be identified as Patty. It seems they deliberately don't want any more named storms to form or something absurd like that.

If you can name Jose or Helene, you can name this one.

Arctic summer wind shift could affect sea ice loss and U.S./European weather, says NOAA-led study
October 10, 2012

Changes in summer Arctic wind patterns contribute not only to an unprecedented loss of Arctic sea ice, but could also bring about shifts in North American and European weather, according to a new NOAA-led study published today in Geophysical Research Letters.

A research team led by James Overland, Ph.D., of NOAA’s Pacific Marine Environmental Laboratory in Seattle, Wash., examined the wind patterns in the subarctic in the early summer between 2007 and 2012 as compared to the average for 1981 to 2010. They discovered that the previously normal west-to-east flowing upper-level winds have been replaced by a more north-south undulating, or wave-like pattern. This new wind pattern transports warmer air into the Arctic and pushes Arctic air farther south, and may influence the likelihood of persistent weather conditions in the mid-latitudes.

“Our research reveals a change in the summer Arctic wind pattern over the past six years. This shift demonstrates a physical connection between reduced Arctic sea ice in the summer, loss of Greenland ice, and potentially, weather in North American and Europe,” said Overland, a NOAA research oceanographer.  

...
The Washington Post had a nice write-up about the NOAA report today. The bottom line, as both scientists and a growing number of laypeople are realizing: the overall increasing warming of the past decades is having a detrimental effect on our weather--and it's likely going to get far worse.

I wonder what the NHC will do at 5pm if the T numbers for TD 16 increase to T3.5.

And 98L should be upgraded to code red at about 70% with mention made about the possible formation of a TD within 48 hrs.

Quite often when the NHC says the motion is a particular direction that appears to include the "forecasted" direction from the models. The track for 98l as observed has really been W for a long time now
