What is a Hurricane?

A hurricane (or typhoon, or severe tropical cyclone), the strongest storm on Earth, is a cyclonic (rotary) storm that derives its energy from cloud formation and rainfall, unlike frontal cyclones that derive their power from a temperature gradient. Full Article

The Saffir-Simpson Scale

Category 1 – 74-95 mph (64-82 knots; 119-153 km/hr). Damage is limited to foliage, signage, unanchored boats and mobile homes. There is no significant damage to buildings. The main threat to life and property may be flooding from heavy rains.

Category 2 – 96-110 mph (83-95 knots; 154-177 km/hr). Roof damage to buildings. Doors and windows damaged. Mobile homes severely damaged. Piers damaged by storm surge. Some trees blown down, more extensive limb damage. Full Article

Tropical Cyclone Formation

Tropical Cyclone Genesis is the technical term for the process of storm formation that leads ultimately to what are called hurricanes, typhoons, or tropical cyclones in various parts of the world.

This occurs when, in the Northern Hemisphere, the Intertropical Convergence Zone, or ITCZ, shifts northward out of the doldrums and atmospheric conditions become favorable for tropical cyclone formation after about the middle of May. Full Article

SUBJ/PROGNOSTIC REASONING FOR TROPICAL DEPRESSION 11W (ELEVEN) 
WARNING NR 02//
RMKS//
1. FOR METEOROLOGISTS.
2. 6 HOUR SUMMARY AND ANALYSIS.
   TROPICAL DEPRESSION (TD) 11W (ELEVEN), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 415 
NM NORTHEAST OF MANILA, PHILIPPINES, HAS TRACKED WEST-SOUTHWESTWARD
AT 13 KNOTS OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS. ANIMATED ENHANCED INFRARED 
SATELLITE IMAGERY DEPICTS A SYMMETRIC AREA OF PERSISTENT DEEP 
CONVECTION OVER THE SOUTHERN SEMICIRCLE OF A PARTIALLY-EXPOSED, LOW-
LEVEL CIRCULATION CENTER (LLCC). A 151727Z AMSR2 89GHZ IMAGE 
PROVIDES EVIDENCE THAT THE AREA OF DEEP CONVECTION IS DISORGANIZED 
AND DISPLACED OVER THE SOUTHERN SEMICIRCLE DUE TO NORTHEASTERLY 
VERTICAL WIND SHEAR (VWS) WITH CLEARLY DEFINED SHALLOW BANDING 
WRAPPING INTO AN ELONGATED LLCC. THIS SUPPORTS THE CURRENT POSITION 
WITH MODERATE CONFIDENCE. UPPER-LEVEL CONDITIONS REMAIN MARGINALLY 
FAVORABLE WITH LOW TO MODERATE VWS, AND BROAD EQUATORWARD DIFFLUENCE 
WITH CONVERGENCE OVER THE NORTHERN PERIPHERY OF THE SYSTEM HINDERING 
SIGNIFICANT DEVELOPMENT. TD 11W IS TRACKING GENERALLY WESTWARD UNDER 
THE STEERING INFLUENCE OF A DEEP-LAYERED SUBTROPICAL RIDGE (STR) 
ENTRENCHED TO THE NORTH. THIS UNUSUALLY STRONG EAST-WEST ORIENTED 
STR IS PRODUCING CLIMATOLOGICALLY FAST TRACK SPEEDS.             
3. FORECAST REASONING.
   A. THERE IS NO CHANGE TO THE FORECAST PHILOSOPHY SINCE THE 
PREVIOUS PROGNOSTIC REASONING MESSAGE.
   B. TD 11W IS FORECAST TO CONTINUE TRACKING QUICKLY WESTWARD 
THROUGH THE FORECAST PERIOD. UPPER-LEVEL CONDITIONS ARE EXPECTED TO 
REMAIN MARGINALLY FAVORABLE AS THE SYSTEM REMAINS UNDER 
NORTHEASTERLY FLOW UNTIL TAU 48, THEREFORE, THE SYSTEM WILL 
INTENSIFY SLOWLY. AFTER TAU 48, AN UPPER-LEVEL RIDGE IS FORECAST TO 
BUILD OVER THE NORTHWESTERN PORTION OF THE SOUTH CHINA SEA, WHICH 
SHOULD ALLOW FOR A BRIEF PERIOD OF SIGNIFICANT INTENSIFICATION TO A 
PEAK OF 50 KNOTS. HOWEVER, THE SYSTEM WILL MAKE LANDFALL NEAR TAU 48 
AND WILL WEAKEN AS IT TRACKS ACROSS HAINAN ISLAND WITH FURTHER 
WEAKENING AS IT MAKES LANDFALL OVER VIETNAM BY TAU 72. DUE TO THE 
FAST TRACK SPEEDS AND GENERALLY MARGINAL UPPER-LEVEL ENVIRONMENT, 
THERE IS MODERATE UNCERTAINTY IN THE JTWC INTENSITY FORECAST.
   C. AFTER TAU 72, TD 11W WILL CONTINUE TO TRACK INLAND OVER ROUGH 
TERRAIN AND WILL DISSIPATE BY TAU 96. OVERALL, NUMERICAL MODEL 
GUIDANCE IS IN GOOD AGREEMENT, THEREFORE THERE IS NOW HIGH 
CONFIDENCE IN THE JTWC FORECAST TRACK.//
