New NHC revelations; Atlantic tropical update; Hawaii watches Cosme

There are no areas of interest to talk about in the tropical Atlantic today, but we will need to watch the waters off the Carolina coast on Saturday when a cold front is expected to push off the coast. The tail end of this front could serve as the focus for development of a tropical disturbance. The UKMET model is forecasting the development of a low pressure system here on Sunday. This low may be an ordinary extratropical storm, though, due to the presence of high wind shear.

Large amounts of dry air and African dust cover the eastern Atlantic, and this dusty air is moving westward towards the Caribbean. Tropical storm development is unlikely in this region for the coming five days. Thereafter, as a major shift in the Northern Hemisphere weather pattern puts a ridge of high pressure in place over the Eastern U.S., the Saharan dust outbreaks may decrease. Additionally, wind shear over the tropical Atlantic is expected to decrease substantially by next week, and chances of tropical storm formation are much higher next week than they were this week.

Hawaii eyes Cosme
Residents of the Hawaiian Islands need to keep an eye on Tropical Depression Cosme, which is headed towards the islands and may impact their weather by Saturday. Cosme is struggling with 10-20 knots of wind shear and ocean temperatures of about 25 degrees C. Satellite imagery of the storm shows that the amount of heavy thunderstorm activity has decreased some this morning, and it is possible that the unfavorable shear and SSTs will kill the depression before it encounters warmer waters and lower shear on Friday. If Cosme does survive the next 24 hours, it could re-intensify to a weak tropical storm and brush the Big Island of Hawaii on Saturday.


Figure 1. Sea Surface temperatures beneath Cosme were about 25 C (78 F), just below the 26 C threshold favorable for tropical cyclones. Cosme will be traversing a region of 24-25 C SSTs through Friday, then SSTs will warm to 25-26 as it approaches the Hawaiian Islands on Saturday.

More on the National Hurricane Center controversy
In an article published in the Houston Chronicle yesterday, senior hurricane specialist James Franklin said that employees of the center were not coerced by NOAA management into signing the July 5 letter of no confidence against director Bill Proenza. This view was echoed by NHC's top administrator in an Orlando Sentinel article. Franklin outlined a variety of reasons why the staff lost confidence in Proenza--Proenza lacked experience in hurricane forecasting and showed little interest in learning the science, ignored his employees to the tune of 2000 unread email from them, and lied to the press about his employees' reaction to his reprimand from NWS chief Mary Glackin.

Also in the Houston Chronicle story is the revelation that Proenza never applied for the position of director of NHC. He was demoted into it, according to Daniel Sobien, president of the National Weather Service Employees Organization. This raises the question, who put Proenza into the job? Why did they do it? Hopefully, this will get answered at today's congressional hearing. The list of people testifying include Bill Proenza; QuikSCAT expert Dr. Robert Atlas; emergency management officials who worked with Proenza; and the head of NOAA, Admiral Lautenbacher. With the exception of Lautenbacher, all these witnesses are likely to be allies of Proenza. Also testifying will be Dr. Jim Turner, deputy director of the federal agency NTIS (National Technical Information Service), who led the inspection team that showed up at NHC without notice on July 2. Dr. Turner's report was scheduled to be completed this Friday, July 20, but is now scheduled to be released to the Congressional panel today. Notably absent from the list of people called to testify is anyone from the National Hurricane Center. Also absent is a QuikSCAT science expert besides Dr. Atlas, who has thus far not addressed in his public comments, that I have seen, the very high uncertainties surrounding the impact of QuikSCAT data on track forecasts of landfalling hurricanes. In fact, in comments published in the Orlando Sentinel, Dr. Atlas claimed that Proenza's statement that loss of the loss of QuikSCAT could reduce the accuracy of hurricane-track forecasts by as much as 16 percent represents "the consensus of the scientific community." Well, that is not the case, as myself and senior hurricane specialists at the National Hurricane Center will attest to. I'll be sure to present a full analysis of the science presented--and the science left unsaid--at today's hearing.

The hearing charter for today's hearing raises these questions:

Why was Proenza chosen to be Director of the highest profiled Center at NOAA?

Beyond the items listed in the Glackin memorandum--which NOAA stresses was not a reprimand document and was not placed in Mr. Proenza's personnel file--are there any other actions that better justify the action to place Proenza on leave?

Why was there such a depth of dissatisfaction over Proenza's focus on a particular satellite?

What is needed to properly equip the Tropical Prediction Center, and are those resources available at this time?

Was the Tropical Prediction Center incapable of carrying out its core task of identifying, tracking and predicting hurricanes before the evaluation team was dispatched by Admiral Lautenbacher?

charley04survivor - I admire your independent spirit. But what about the old, the young, the infirm...those already at the edge. What do they do when their roof comes off, when that post-storm subsidence with that awful heat settles in and there is little food or water?

I would like to think that everyone in the community would chip in and help, but from what I heard from people post-Andrew it sounded more like dog-eat-dog chaos.

Actually, Charley, a major hit could help the stagnant home market by creating a demand for housing by people working on rebuilding. Also, those with homes destroyed would be looking for someplace else to live.

I know the only reason I made it through Hurricane Charley is the fact that I had prepared financially for years. I had a "Hurricane Fund" where I set aside money just like I did my 401k. Each month I'd put money into this fund.

I do guarantee one thing, if a major hurricane hits Florida, many people will leave the state further hurting the home market. I know if we get hit again I'm out of here.

A weather question: What will happen when the Carribbean disturbance gets caught between those two spinning things to the north of it? The one to the east appears larger than the westerly one, too and maybe pushing the westerly one further west...Any ideas?

Saint; Do not disagree with you one bit (on the political issues); I think that one of the main points we are making is that fact that a recurring natural disaster (like Hurricane Season) is a type of "nature's war" and that our Government (and Great country) needs to improve on how it deals with the far reaching effects of such regular calmities....

I lost everything to Hurricane Charley, but I was prepared as much as I could be. I didn't wait for the government to come down and bail me out. You see hurricanes hit Florida all the time. You don't see this state crying out to FEMA each and every time. Mississippi and Alabama even do a good job before and after a storm. Louisiana's problem is its government's lack of preparation. We've done enough for the city of N.O. It was a lost cause before the storm, and certainly one after.

BahaHurican - You got that exactly right. We won't see significant insurance reform because political contributions from any corporations is a legal form of bribery in this country, and insurance companies have more money than banks.
The Supremes recently affirmed that money is speech, and corporations are people (only they are much larger, can be in many countries at once, and are virtually immortal).

My family did get our insurance company to renew out policy this year (although at a higher price), but I suspect it was only because I did not make any claims after the damage to my home caused by Frances.

Ironically this is a simple rule that I suspect any honest insurance adjusters on this site will verify: if you don't make claims you are much less likely to be "dropped". You can pay, but don't try to collect.

Right now, we are living mostly on savings and my wife's income, as I am ill and we have no medical insurance...I only wish we could save for that stormy day. Even being here on the internet is a luxury I really can't afford anymore.

good morning. iknow this not supposed to be a political blog lol but this constant bashing of our gov gets a little tiresome. do any of you posting this agov bashing per katrina live in south ms?also as i have said many times here in s/ms we bore the brunt of this storm from its affects and have done a wonderful job of rebuilding in a short time. we have some great local and state leaders gene taylor trent lott who both lost thier homes and our blessed gov haley barbour.the la problem is basically from inept engineering and horrible local and state leadership nagin and blanco for example.as far as the war is concerned my father is 82 and he and several of his friends spent thier time of youth and i assume most of you are young vacationing in normandy sicily and berlin. people did not bash the gov but they did sacrifice for the greater good. thats why they are known as the greatest generation. while we now in these generations sit in our comfy complaining about everything and the only one sacrificing is our military.and if the cigar administration would have done something when they had a clear oppurtunity 9/11 could have been avoided. the gov is far from perfect but this is still the greatest country in the world and god has deeply blessed us do we appreciate i think not by what i here and read maybe this is a liberal forum and all liberal supporters? i dont know but me personally if thier is a war and our people are involved i will support them in any way annd keep my negativity to my self. remember the only reason you can complain and bash openly is bbecause of all the men who died for freedom. and one last tibit one great liberal said ask not what your country can do for you ask what you can do for your country imho god bless

we need to create more parks and recreational areas along the Gulf Coast (reclaim Mother Nature) so that regular folk can vacation there (not live there in permanent homes); thus, the impact of the occasional storm is not as devastating on local economies/people....Eco Tourism...

One of the reasons why there was so much available coastline when "american" style tourism came to the Bahamas was that traditionally Bahamians would not build houses within 300 yards of the shoreline. If you visit settlements (what we call the villages and small towns here) in the Family Islands even today, you will notice that most houses have huge back yards that face the shoreline. This is because the old people learned - likely from experience - that to build close to the shore was to suffer disaster when a storm came through. In fact, where possible, people often looked for a ridge of some kind, even if only 10 feet high, to build on. Certainly there was no filling in of swamplands and ponds along the shoreline as seen today. If a major makes a direct hit on New Providence now, there are literally hundreds of homes that are likely to be completly flooded by surge and even washed out to sea because of their location. Just about the only thing likely to save much of the coastal construction is that almost everything is built using concrete block, which is by law required to be steel reinforced.

I know quite a few of the larger Midwestern cities have made flood plains along rivers into parks and public areas; they realized it's much easier to restore a park than a community of homes. Certainly a similar approach to shorelines - i. e. making them available to tourists but keeping permanent dwellings out of the danger zone - would be of long-term benefit to Florida

...some kind of long-term emergency savings plan - not insurance - which can only be accessed in the event of a catastrophic event affecting the home. Maybe as part of a mortgage plan? That way the money is there when you need it and is not subject to the whims of some shark of an insurance adjuster whose bottom line is company profit.


Hello neighbor,
hmmmmmm, you trust mortgage bankers instead of insurance companies.....
I think they both would keep YOUR funds in one of our "well regulated and secure" offshore banks.... and "da money jus not be der" after the storm..... imho

This morning's paper says State Farm is cutting 50,000 policies in "high risk coastal areas" within two miles of the ocean.
That they're allowed to do that after collecting on policies for decades is criminal.

It's their responsibility to inform you if there are problems...possibly serious medical problems...from the FEMA trailers and they knew about it and ignored it. They had a man on TV last night that they were interviewing that lost his wife from one of those FEMA trailers.

Wow! I didn't know it was the governements responsibility to take care of me if I lost my house to a hurricane. What the hell do you think people have insurance for? Perhaps we should just ditch the trailers and build everyone down there a nice mansion to live in. And while were at it, why not put a few cars in the garage for them also.

I think it's more a matter of how to reform without offending the "good-ole boy" insurance companies, some of whom are legislators' biggest supporters.

I'm also thinking about the aftermath of the 1928? (or was it 1926?) hurricane on the Miami area. An article in the Sun-Sentinel describes it as plunging Miami into the Great Depression earlier than the rest of the country. I'm hoping the "traditional" residents of FL will be able to weather the insurance storms as well as the hurricanes. Also, I think FL homeowners should consider some kind of long-term emergency savings plan - not insurance - which can only be accessed in the event of a catastrophic event affecting the home. Maybe as part of a mortgage plan? That way the money is there when you need it and is not subject to the whims of some shark of an insurance adjuster whose bottom line is company profit.

I wish there was something like that here . . .

Hear hear IKE, well-spoken and very true. Even a large and strong CAT1/CAT2 landfall in recently stricken areas of the Gulf Coast and Florida will have a strong negative effect on the economy. Here in FL the mortgage bubble is bursting, good 'ole boy developers are going under, people are losing private insurance and having to resort to expensive state insurance. I've never seen so many houses for sale in my little town. In FL the legislature is passing laws to drastically reduce taxes on homes, and interfering with the ability of cities and towns to collect their own taxes. The crisis is partly due to the wildly inflated assessments on home values here and relief is needed, but public services in many cities will be cut below the level needed to maintain an acceptable level of even the most basic services such as police, firemen, water purification and waste disposal. I also have not seen any mosquito control units out this summer in my area, usually a very common sight. Meanwhile the government daudles on the real need for insurance reform.

It is not just the damage that would be caused by another land-falling hurricane in FL, but also the negative perception of potential investors that will exacerbate the tailspin.

I know the situation is even more dire on the central Gulf coast.

We all need to hope and pray there will be no landfalling hurricanes this year.

Sorry folks for perhaps getting off-topic, but while a storm may pass in a relatively few hours, the effects last for years afterwards.

Good morning,
With my old eyes, the TWDAT discussion just posted, in ALL CAPS as usual is as hard to read as "some" of the run-on-no-punctuation-posts here. I have broken portions of the TWDAT which appear to me to be relevant to the "blob" East of PR.

Does this below seem a reasonable way to divide up the TWDAT to help with readability?
(and thus help me understand what the NHC is saying)
