Australia Endures Another Dangerous Fire Weather Day; Lorenzo Dissipates

Sydney, Australia and the Blue Mountains have endured a second day of dangerous fire weather conditions without a devastating fire catastrophe ensuing. The high temperature in Sydney on Thursday hit 73°F, with sustained winds of 30 mph gusting to 41 mph, and a humidity as low as 7%. The temperature was nearly 20°F cooler than on Wednesday, but the strong winds and low humidity helped fan the 56 fires still burning across the state of New South Wales. Tragically, a fire-fighting aircraft crashed Thursday during a mission to douse one of the fires, killing the pilot and starting a new fire. The fires have burned more than 120,000 hectares (300,000 acres), and have a perimeter of about 1,600 km (990 miles), and are being blamed for two deaths and over $97 million in damage. Australia has just had its hottest September on record, and the 12-month period ending in August 2013 set a record for the hottest 12-month period in Australian history. Australia's warmest summer and 3rd warmest winter on record occurred during this 12-month period. It has also been quite dry in the fire region over the past few months, with sol moisture levels in the lowest 10% historically. However, the latest drought statement from the Bureau of Meteorology is not showing that long-term drought conditions exist.

Raymond weakens, moves away from Mexico
Tropical Storm Raymond continues to move away from the coast of Mexico, and will no longer bring heavy rains to the country. Recent satellite loops show that Raymond is a poorly-organized tropical storm, with just a modest area of heavy thunderstorms.


Figure 2. Rainfall over Mexico from October 15 - 23 from Hurricane Raymond totaled close to 10" near Acapulco, as estimated by NASA's TRMM satellite. Fortunately, Raymond did not move ashore, or else the 15+" inches of rain that fell offshore would have fallen over land. Image credit: NASA Goddard Space Flight Center.

Tropical Storm Lorenzo dies in the Middle Atlantic
Tropical Storm Lorenzo has died in the Middle Atlantic, done in by high wind shear. None of the reliable computer models for tropical cyclone genesis are predicting any new storms developing in the coming five days. During the first week of November, the Madden Julian Oscillation (MJO), a pattern of increased thunderstorm activity near the Equator that moves around the globe in 30 - 60 days, will bring rising air over the Caribbean, increasing the odds of a tropical storm developing then.

Typhoons Francisco and Lekima weaken
Typhoon Francisco has weakened to a tropical storm, and is bringing heavy rains to Japan as it stays offshore and heads northeast, parallel to the coast. Super Typhoon Lekima, which stayed at Category 5 status for a day and a half, has now weakened to a Category 4 storm with 150 mph winds. Satellite loops show that Lekima is still an impressive typhoon with a prominent eye surrounded by a solid ring of eyewall clouds with very cold cloud tops. Lekima is predicted to recurve to the northeast without affecting any land areas. While Lekima was at peak strength between 12 and 18 UTC on Wednesday, its eye expanded greatly in size while the storm stayed at Category 5 strength, something that is very unusual to see (thanks to Scott Bachmeier of the University of Wisconsin CIMSS for the info and animation.)

Arctic temperatures at 44,000-year high

Plenty of studies have shown that the Arctic is warming and that the ice caps are melting, but how does it compare to the past, and how serious is it?

New research shows that average summer temperatures in the Canadian Arctic over the last century are the highest in the last 44,000 years, and perhaps the highest in 120,000 years.

"The key piece here is just how unprecedented the warming of Arctic Canada is," Gifford Miller, a researcher at the University of Colorado, Boulder, said in a joint statement from the school and the publisher of the journal Geophysical Research Letters, in which the study by Miller and his colleagues was published online this week. "This study really says the warming we are seeing is outside any kind of known natural variability, and it has to be due to increased greenhouse gases in the atmosphere."

TROPICAL STORM RAYMOND DISCUSSION NUMBER 21
NWS NATIONAL HURRICANE CENTER MIAMI FL EP172013
800 PM PDT THU OCT 24 2013

RAYMOND HAS MADE A COMEBACK TONIGHT. A LARGE CLUSTER OF DEEP
CONVECTION HAS FORMED NEAR THE CENTER...AND THE OVERALL CLOUD
PATTERN HAS BECOME BETTER ORGANIZED. THE INITIAL INTENSITY HAS BEEN
ADJUSTED UPWARD TO 50 KNOTS...BASED ON A BLEND OF SUBJECTIVE
T-NUMBERS FROM TAFB AND SAB...AND OBJECTIVE NUMBERS FROM THE
UNIVERSITY OF WISCONSIN. THE GLOBAL MODELS...PRIMARILY THE GFS AND
THE ECMWF...HAVE DONE A REMARKABLY GOOD JOB IN FORECASTING THE
CHANGE FROM UNFAVORABLE TO FAVORABLE UPPER-LEVEL WINDS. NOW THAT
THIS FAVORABLE PATTERN HAS MATERIALIZED...AS SEEN BY A WESTWARD
EXPANSION OF THE OUTFLOW...THE NHC FORECAST CALLS FOR RAYMOND TO
REACH HURRICANE STRENGTH AGAIN IN A DAY OR SO OVER OPEN WATERS.
THIS IS CONSISTENT WITH THE INTENSITY CONSENSUS AND WITH THE UPWARD
INTENSITY TREND SHOWN BY GUIDANCE TONIGHT. THE HWRF APPEARS TO BE
ALONE IN THIS FORECAST CYCLE...KEEPING RAYMOND ON A GRADUAL STEADY
DECAY OR WITH NO CHANGE IN INTENSITY. BY THE END OF THE FORECAST
PERIOD...WHEN THE SHEAR INCREASES WITH THE ARRIVAL OF A NEW MID- TO
UPPER-LEVEL TROUGH...AND THE INFLUENCE OF COOLER WATERS...WEAKENING
SHOULD THEN BEGIN.

THE SUBTROPICAL RIDGE TO THE NORTH OF RAYMOND HAS CONTINUED TO
EXPAND AND IS FORCING THE CYCLONE TO MOVE TOWARD THE WEST OR 265
DEGREES AT 9 KNOTS. THIS SUBTROPICAL RIDGE IS NOT GOING ANYWHERE
DURING THE NEXT 3 DAYS OR SO...AND THIS STEERING PATTERN WILL KEEP
RAYMOND ON A GENERAL WESTWARD TRACK AWAY FROM MEXICO. BY DAY 4
AND BEYOND...THE SAME APPROACHING TROUGH WHICH WILL INDUCE THE
SHEAR WILL ALSO ERODE THE SUBTROPICAL RIDGE. THE CYCLONE SHOULD
THEN SLOW DOWN AND TURN NORTHWARD AHEAD OF THE TROUGH. MOST OF THE
GUIDANCE IS CONSISTENT WITH THE WESTWARD MOTION TROUGH DAY 3 OR
SO...BUT AFTER THAT TIME...THE TRACK BECOMES HIGHLY UNCERTAIN WITH
SOME MODELS KEEPING THE CYCLONE MEANDERING...AND OTHERS MOVING IT
NORTHWARD A LITTLE FASTER. THE FIRST SOLUTION IS THE MOST LIKELY
SCENARIO TO OCCUR SINCE BY THAT TIME...RAYMOND SHOULD BE WEAKER AND
STEERED BY A MUCH LIGHTER LOW-LEVEL FLOW.


FORECAST POSITIONS AND MAX WINDS

Seriously, what is with all the typhoons wanting to become partially, or in Lekima's case...fully, annular this year?

Actually, annulars are more common in the WPac.

It appears that Lekima has completed its EWRC. Would like to see the end result when the eye clears up.

After finding out that most of the parks in the City of Miami/Coconut Grove Area were toxic waste dumps before they became parks and are hundreds to thousands of times above the allowable limits for toxins,not so sure where 'safe' is anymore.
