Dorian Makes a Short-Lived Comeback as a Tropical Depression

By: Dr. Jeff Masters , 3:37 PM GMT on August 03, 2013

Like an annoying fly buzzing around your head that just won't go away, Dorian is back. Dorian began as a tropical wave that moved off the coast of Africa on July 22. Although initially given only a 10% of developing, Dorian surprised forecasters by becoming the 2nd farthest east-forming tropical storm for so early in the year on July 24. Dorian peaked in strength on July 25, when its top winds reached 60 mph. On July 26, Dorian encountered a dryer, more stable atmosphere, and the storm dissipated to a tropical wave on July 27. The remnants of Dorian continued tracking west-northwest, passing north of the Lesser Antilles Islands and into the Bahamas this week. Finally, at 5 AM EDT this Saturday morning, the remnants of Dorian reorganized enough to prompt the National Hurricane Center to upgrade Dorian's remnants to be Tropical Depression Dorian.


Figure 1. Morning satellite image of Tropical Depression Dorian, showing the surface circulation exposed to view as a naked swirl of low clouds, and a modest area of heavy thunderstorms well to the south of the center.

Dorian does not have long to live, due to high wind shear of 20 - 30 knots that has removed all of the storm's heavy thunderstorms far from the center, leaving the surface circulation exposed to view as a naked swirl of low clouds. With wind shear expected to rise even further this weekend, Dorian will likely be dead by Sunday, and get absorbed into the cold front lying off of the Southeast U.S. coast. Dorian is not a threat to any land areas.

Elsewhere in the Atlantic, none of the reliable computer models is predicting tropical cyclone formation over the coming week.


Video 1. With Discovery Channel's Shark Week approaching, Veronica of the web video series, "Fact or Fictional?" talks with me and a marine biologist about sharknadoes. Is it possible for a ferocious tornado to rip through Southern California, raining man eating sharks? My bit starts about halfway through the video.

Have a great weekend, everyone!

Anteaters? I don't think they have them roaming wild in Florida, at least not yet. Maybe they were armadillos?
No, but we have armadillos too. Aardvarks are becoming common here. You don't hear much about it because everyone is focused on the pythons and lionfish, and also they are reducing the fire ants.
On a different note, thank you for the lesson on the VIL, that is interesting and useful!

Cos, really, time to give up on this one. He only made it back as a TD because the low managed to break free of the coast. Of course, that blob still hanging around could do something, I guess, but I think it will take a lot for the NHC to reclassify Dorian again. I think even the NHC is sick of this one.
Making it back to a TS/TS near Florida was all I ever thought possible. These type of systems are my favorite to track. I don't care much for tracking landfalling majors. I like it that it was written off by the NHC and humorously killed over and over day after day here. Probably shouldn't push my luck though, you're right. But, why not?

Don't know about Florida but 60,000 foot thunderstorms are not common in Alabama. There is a general relationship between storm tops and severity, but not always. WU's radars have a neat feature that allows you to look at the VIL (Vertically Integrated Liquid) makeup of a thunderstorm. The higher the VIL number, the more likely it's produce hail and strong winds. Any number over 40 is not good. Over 60 and severe hail in near a 100% certainty. If you see numbers in the 80's and 90's, start heading for shelter.


Well see here in Florida, its common to see thunderstorms in a deep tropical air mass get that tall, but the atmospheric column is often too warm with height for large hail.

Large hail here is more common in the drier season during the spring with the passage of cold fronts because the atmospheric column is colder during this time of year.

And although thunderstorms are often more shallow here in the Spring than in the summer, they are often more likely to produce hail.

Air mass thunderstorms don't typically go severe because they don't have the parameters to support such even if they do grow monstrously tall. Although the collision between 2 sea breezes often does produce isolated severe thunderstorms and tornadoes here. On a given day they are few and far between but the many number of days with them around gives many of us a taste of occasionally violent thunderstorms that are a step up above the typical.

Often though, tropical thunderstorms do still have large hail, it just never makes it to the ground. In fact, hurricane hunters frequently encounter large hail in hurricane banding especially the eye wall, but you pretty much never here of hail making it to the ground in tropical cyclones.

Not 100% dead yet on Dorian! 98% dead. There's a slim chance he could regenerate one more time and make the NHC re-re-activate advisories. Even a 1% chance of a hurricane. At least now he's headed out to palookaville whatever he does.

Are severe thunderstorms that tall ?


Yes but a thunderstorm being that tall isn't necessarily severe. See the tricky thing about severe weather is that its not necessarily based on how strong the thunderstorm cell is, but more on parameters that give it the capability of producing severe weather.

Many of the sea breeze thunderstorms here get very strong, but only a few actually go severe because widespread severe needs more than heat and moisture.

Although because showers and thunderstorms are so common for several months here. Over the many number of thunderstorms you experience, almost everyone sees at least a couple severe events over the course of the season even though they are very isolated on a given day.

Those thunderstorms are especially dangerous when they're mixed in with strong deep layer shear.

Just to show you how hot it was in Germany on Friday, here are news of a little uproar in a public open air swimming pool in Berlin (August 2, 2013) because of the heat and too much testosterone, apparently, lol. Translation of german news about the incident from Hitzkoepfe gegen Bademeister: Berliner Polizei raeumt Freibad:

The high temperatures apparently did not do any good. In Berlin, the water fun in a public pool will be reserved only for families this weekend. After conflicts over a water slide and a diving tower between dozens of young people and the lifeguards more than 60 policemen had to clear "Sommerbad Pankow".

The situation escalated on Friday evening, when the diving tower and the water slide were closed due to overcrowding, police said. As the young people then pressed the lifeguard, the direction of the public bath alerted the authorities. In response to the incidents the outdoor pool will now be reserved on weekends for families: "Particularly groups of testosterone-flooded young men are not allowed to enter," said Matthias Oloew, spokesman for the Berlin swimming pool operations.

Looks like a normal day in a US water park. :-) I like the idea of keeping testosterone-flooded young men segregated somewhere as a general principle anyway.

TROPICAL DEPRESSION EIGHT-E DISCUSSION NUMBER 2
NWS NATIONAL HURRICANE CENTER MIAMI FL EP082013
200 PM PDT SAT AUG 03 2013

THE CLOUD PATTERN HAS NOT BECOME ANY BETTER ORGANIZED DURING THE
PAST SEVERAL HOURS...AND SATELLITE INTENSITY ESTIMATES INDICATE
THAT THE WINDS REMAIN AT 25 KNOTS. THE DEPRESSION IS STILL
PARTIALLY EMBEDDED WITHIN THE ITCZ...AND ENVIRONMENTAL CONDITIONS
ARE ONLY MARGINAL FOR STRENGTHENING. SLIGHT WEAKENING IS FORECAST
BY THE END OF THE FORECAST PERIOD AS THE CYCLONE APPROACHES A MORE
STABLE AIR.

THE INITIAL MOTION IS HIGHLY UNCERTAIN...BUT SATELLITE FIXES SUGGEST
THAT THE DEPRESSION IS MOVING TOWARD THE WEST OR 260 DEGREES AT 8
KNOTS. THE DEPRESSION IS TRAPPED SOUTH OF A STRONG HIGH PRESSURE
RIDGE TO THE NORTH...AND THIS PATTERN SHOULD KEEP THE DEPRESSION
MOVING SLOWLY WESTWARD. IN A COUPLE OF DAYS...THE RIDGE SHOULD
WEAKEN AND A GRADUAL WEST-NORTHWEST MOTION WILL LIKELY BEGIN. THE
GFS BRINGS THE DEPRESSION FARTHER TO THE NORTH WHILE THE ECMWF KEEPS
THE CYCLONE BASICALLY MOVING WESTWARD. THE OFFICIAL FORECAST IS IN
BETWEEN THESE TWO MODELS AND CLOSE TO THE MULTI-MODEL CONSENSUS.

Two people were critically injured Saturday in a pileup that involved a semi truck and about eight other vehicles on southbound I-75 just north of State Road 60, the Florida Highway Patrol said.


The crash happened around noon Saturday and shut down all of the lanes on southbound I-75, as well as State Road 60 in the area. Officials said I-75 has since then reopened.

TROPICAL STORM GIL DISCUSSION NUMBER 18
NWS NATIONAL HURRICANE CENTER MIAMI FL EP072013
200 PM PDT SAT AUG 03 2013

DEEP CONVECTION HAS CONTINUED TO BURST INTERMITTENTLY NEAR THE
CENTER OF GIL DURING THE PAST SEVERAL HOURS. DVORAK CI ESTIMATES
RANGE FROM 35 TO 65 KT...A DISCREPANCY THAT CAN BE EXPLAINED IN
PART BY THE PULSATING NATURE OF THE CONVECTION. THE INTENSITY HAS
BEEN HELD AT 50 KT AS A CONSERVATIVE COMPROMISE BETWEEN THESE
ESTIMATES...HOWEVER BASED ON LONG-TERM TRENDS...THIS MAY BE
GENEROUS. THE INTENSITY GUIDANCE HAS NOT COME INTO BETTER
AGREEMENT. THE STATISTICAL MODELS FORECAST THAT THE INTENSITY WILL
NOT CHANGE MUCH DURING THE NEXT COUPLE OF DAYS...AND THAT
STRENGTHENING WILL OCCUR AFTER THAT. THE UW-CIMSS SHEAR ANALYSIS
SUGGESTS THAT THE SHEAR IS SUBSTANTIALLY HIGHER THAN THE SHIPS
ANALYSIS INDICATES...WHICH MAY EXPLAIN WHY THE STATISTICAL MODELS
FORECAST INTENSIFICATION. THE OFFICIAL FORECAST HAS NOT BEEN
CHANGED SUBSTANTIALLY...AND LEANS TOWARD THE DYNAMICAL MODEL
CONSENSUS FORECAST OF GRADUAL WEAKENING.

GIL CONTINUES TO MOVE ON A STEADY WESTWARD HEADING AT 11 KT...
STEERED BY A MID-LEVEL RIDGE LOCATED TO THE NORTHEAST. THE GLOBAL
MODELS AGREE THAT THIS RIDGE WILL BUILD TOWARD THE SOUTHWEST OVER
THE NEXT 48 TO 72 HOURS...WHICH SHOULD CAUSE THE CYCLONE TO TURN
TOWARD THE WEST-SOUTHWEST. AFTER THAT TIME...THERE IS ONCE AGAIN A
LARGE AMOUNT OF SPREAD IN THE TRACK GUIDANCE. IN FACT...THE GFS
AND ECMWF MODEL DAY 5 FORECAST POSITIONS ARE NEARLY 600 MILES
APART. THE PRIMARY DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THESE MODELS SEEMS TO BE THE
DEPTH OF THE CIRCULATION. THE ECMWF FORECASTS A MUCH SHALLOWER
SYSTEM THAT IS STEERED PRIMARILY BY LOW-LEVEL EASTERLIES...WHILE
THE GFS FORECASTS A DEEPER CYCLONE THAT SLOWS AND TURNS TOWARD THE
NORTH. THE OFFICIAL FORECAST IS A BLEND OF THESE TWO SOLUTIONS...
AND CALLS FOR WESTWARD MOTION AFTER DAY 3...IN LINE WITH THE
INTENSITY FORECAST FOR A WEAKER CYCLONE.
