Tropical Storm Flossie threatens Hawaii

STORM TRACK//


**Update***


Tropical storm Flossie entered the Central Pacific Basin (140W-180IDL) Saturday morning (Sat. afternoon EDT) as a moderate 50 mph tropical storm, and further weakening was expected. However Flossie is now entering an area of warmer surface waters which could lead to the storm re-organization and that is not what the 50th US Sate of Hawaii doesn't want to hear.


Expect major rainfall from this storm over most of the Hawaiian Islands, as well as high waves, high rip current risk, widespread tropical storm winds brining down trees and causing power outages.


Hawaii, NWS


A flash flood watch is in effect for the islands as well.



Warmer waters are ahead of the storm which could help intensifying it but not too fast as there is a dense layer of dry air ahead and right now there is some dry shear affecting the storm. I expect the storm to slowly weaken from now on but to be strong enough to reach Hawaii and bring some adverse weather there.


More info later... expect the 5 AM HST ( 11 AM EDT) advisory shortly

Hi Max, and Astro. To answer your question Max about Philly, look at Dr. Masters Blog from July 29th. Here in Sw CT. the precip. basically fizzled out vas it came over us. I got only 0.25" of rain from that system. No big deal Some areas in Northern and Central NJ. received quite a bit more. We could get quite a lot here on Thurs. Looking foreword to the new blog. G'Nite.

On July 24th, about an hour after sunset, Gerardo Connon of Rio Grande city in Tierra del Fuego, Argentina, walked outside and witnessed a rare display of nacreous clouds. The colorful apparition was as bright as the street lights in the city below:




These clouds, also known as "mother of pearl clouds," form in the stratosphere far above the usual realm of weather. They are seldom seen, but when they are, the reports usually come from high-northern parts of our planet. This apparition over Tierra del Fuego was unusual indeed.

Atmospheric optics expert Les Cowley explains the special conditions required to create such a cloud: "Take an unusually cold lower stratosphere (15-25km high), use some gravity waves generated by high winds and storms in the troposphere to stir in some water vapour, and -- voilà! You get these clouds made of tiny ice crystals shining after sunset with unforgettably bright iridescent colors."

"The very special conditions make nacreous clouds a rare, high-latitude phenomenon. Scandinavia, Iceland and northern Canada are favourite places to see them. Sightings in the southern hemisphere are even more rare because there is so little land far enough south except for Antarctica."
