TROPICAL WEATHER OUTLOOK
NWS NATIONAL HURRICANE CENTER MIAMI FL
200 AM EDT SAT OCT 3 2015

For the North Atlantic...Caribbean Sea and the Gulf of Mexico:

The National Hurricane Center is issuing advisories on Hurricane
Joaquin, located near the central Bahamas.

A non-tropical area of low pressure over the central Atlantic about
850 miles east-southeast of Bermuda continues to produce gale-force
winds, but the associated shower and thunderstorm activity is
displaced well to the east of the center. Environmental conditions
are forecast to be conducive for the low to acquire more tropical
characteristics for about another day. After that time, strong
upper-level winds associated with Hurricane Joaquin should prevent
development of this system. Information on this low can be found
in High Seas Forecasts issued by the National Weather Service.
* Formation chance through 48 hours...medium...50 percent
* Formation chance through 5 days...medium...50 percent

A tropical wave located several hundred miles southwest of the
Cape Verde Islands is producing disorganized showers and
thunderstorms. Some slow development of this system is possible
next week while the system moves west-northwestward at 10 to 15
mph.
* Formation chance through 48 hours...low...near 0 percent
* Formation chance through 5 days...low...20 percent

CINCINNATI -- Already improbable, the notion of a Mets collapse has become near-impossible. New York all but sewed up the National League East with a 6-4 win over the Reds on Thursday at Great American Ball Park; combined with the Nationals' loss earlier in the day, it grew the Mets' division lead to 7 1/2 games with nine to play while dropping their magic number to 3. on September 24, 2015

TROPICAL STORM IDA DISCUSSION NUMBER 4
NWS NATIONAL HURRICANE CENTER MIAMI FL AL102015
500 AM AST SAT SEP 19 2015

The overall organization of Ida's cloud pattern continues to
increase. Banding features are becoming more prominent in the
southern part of the circulation, with a new band forming on the
west side. In addition, a burst of convection has been ongoing
during the past few hours near the apparent center. Satellite
classifications still support an intensity of 35 kt, and this value
is used as the initial wind speed.

Satellite fixes suggest that the northwestward motion of Ida has
sped up to 9 kt this morning. A mid-level ridge is expected to
remain the dominant steering mechanism for the next couple of days,
causing the storm to move to the west-northwest or northwest during
that time. Models are in good agreement and only a slight
northward adjustment was made to the official forecast then. Beyond
2 days, there is considerable uncertainty on how an amplifying
trough over the east-central Atlantic will affect Ida. The cyclone
seems likely to slow down due to steering currents collapsing, but
there is poor agreement on whether the trough will pick up Ida,
sending the storm east-northeastward, or leave the storm behind. For
example, the normally reliable ECMWF and GFS models are going in
opposite directions at day 5, with the ECMWF favoring a stronger
trough solution while the GFS has Ida missing the trough and
drifting westward. With so much uncertainty, I have elected to show
a stationary Ida after day 3, preferring not to commit to
either solution at this time. This forecast blends the previous
forecast with the model consensus, although leans more heavily on
the former.

While the shear near Ida is low for now, most of the global models
show an increase during the next day or so. This is expected to
somewhat temper future strengthening, although since most of the
other environmental factors are still favorable, a gradual
intensification is forecast. The long-range intensity prediction,
however, is very complex due to the potential interaction of the
trough, which yields very different shear profiles, along with dry
air aloft and possible upwelling of cooler water as Ida moves
slowly. With the track more uncertain than average and these
challenging factors, it seems prudent to remain conservative with
the wind speed forecast. The official intensity forecast is close to
the previous one, which ends up on the low side of the guidance at
days 4/5. It almost goes without saying that these conditions are
leading me to have a rather low confidence in the intensity forecast
at 72 hours and beyond.

PHILADELPHIA -- Nationals right fielder Bryce Harper is having a season for the ages. He leads the National League in several offensive categories, including home runs, on-base percentage and batting average. In Wednesday's 12-2 win over the Phillies, Harper hit his 40th home run in the seventh inning.

Harper is the sixth different player to hit 40 home runs in a season at age 22 or younger, and Wednesday's homer marked the seventh time overall the feat has happened in Major League history (Eddie Matthews did it twice).
When asked what he is most proud of about the 2015 season, Harper said it's about staying healthy, which was an issue the previous two seasons. In 2013, Harper played 118 games because of a left knee injury suffered after running into the right-field wall at Dodger Stadium. Last season, Harper played in only 100 games because of a left thumb injury suffered while sliding into third base.

Grace dissipated late Wednesday morning when it was centered over 800 miles east of the Lesser Antilles. What is left of Grace will bring a few showers to the Lesser Antilles later this week. Strong vertical wind shear and dry air proved to be the demise of Grace.
Tropical Storm HENRI is located about 220 miles to the east-southeast of Bermuda. Late Wednesday afternoon, visible satellite imagery showed that the circulation center was just west of deep convection. However, the convection is strong. And, with weak shear, the convection should be able to wrap around the center. Therefore, strengthening is forecast in the next couple of days, and it should become Tropical Storm Henri. Though stationary now, it should begin a northward motion tonight. It will accelerate north and northeast later this week. It should stay away from land. However, it is not out of the question it affects parts of Atlantic Canada, especially Newfoundland late Friday or early Saturday.
Elsewhere across the Atlantic, there is a potent tropical wave just west of Cape Verde Islands. This wave will have to battle a hostile environment over the next few days. Therefore, it is not expected to develop.
