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

212100Z POSITION NEAR 16.2N 140.8E.
TROPICAL STORM 28W (TRAMI), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 247 NM
NORTHWEST OF NAVSTA GUAM, HAS TRACKED WEST-NORTHWESTWARD AT 12
KNOTS OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 
211800Z IS 15 FEET. NEXT WARNINGS AT 220300Z, 220900Z, 221500Z AND

WARNING NR 05//
RMKS//
1. FOR METEOROLOGISTS.
2. 6 HOUR SUMMARY AND ANALYSIS.
   TROPICAL STORM (TS) 28W (TRAMI), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 250 NM
NORTHWEST OF ANDERSEN AFB, GUAM, HAS TRACKED WEST-NORTHWESTWARD AT 12
KNOTS OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS. ANIMATED ENHANCED INFRARED SATELLITE
IMAGERY SHOWS A PERSISTENT CENTRAL DENSE OVERCAST (CDO) OBSCURING 
THE LOW LEVEL CIRCULATION CENTER (LLCC). THE INITIAL POSITION IS 
PLACED WITH MEDIUM CONFIDENCE BASED ON THE OBSCURATION OF THE LLCC. 
A 211737Z SSMI 89 GHZ MICROWAVE IMAGE PROVIDED ADDITIONAL SUPPORT TO 
THE INITIAL POSITION, SHOWING A SMALL CORE WITH DEEP CONVECTION 
SURROUNDING THE SYSTEM ON ALL BUT THE SOUTHEASTERN QUADRANT. THE 
INITIAL INTENSITY OF 45 KNOTS IS HEDGED HIGHER THAN THE MULTI-AGENCY 
DVORAK CURRENT INTENSITY ESTIMATES OF T2.5 (35 KNOTS) BASED ON AN 
AUTOMATED DVORAK ESTIMATE OF T3.0 (45 KNOTS) AND A SATCON ESTIMATE 
OF 47 KNOTS. TS 28W LIES IN A VERY FAVORABLE ENVIRONMENT, WITH LOW 
VWS, ROBUST POLEWARD OUTFLOW AND HIGH SSTS. TS 28W IS TRACKING WEST-
NORTHWESTWARD UNDER THE INFLUENCE OF THE WEST TO EAST ORIENTATED 
SUBTROPICAL RIDGE (STR)LOCATED TO THE NORTH.
3. FORECAST REASONING.
A. THERE IS NO SIGNIFICANT CHANGE TO THE FORECAST PHILOSOPHY FROM 
THE PREVIOUS PROGNOSTIC REASONING MESSAGE. HOWEVER, THE FORECAST 
PEAK INTENSITY HAS BEEN LOWERED TO 130 KNOTS AND THE TAU 120 
FORECAST INTENSITY HAS BEEN LOWERED TO 120 KNOTS. 
B. TS 28W WILL CONTINUE TO TRACK WEST-NORTHWESTWARD THROUGH TAU 72 
UNDER THE STEERING INFLUENCE OF THE PREVIOUSLY DISCUSSED STR. ALL 
ENVIRONMENTAL FACTORS (VWS, SST AND UPPER-LEVEL OUTFLOW) ARE ALL 
HIGHLY FAVORABLE FOR RAPID INTENSIFICATION (RI) THROUGH THE NEXT 48 
HOURS, SUPPORTED BY RI-SPECIFIC MODEL GUIDANCE, WHICH ARE INDICATING 
A VERY HIGH PROBABILITY OF A SIGNIFICANT RI EVENT IN THE NEAR TERM. 
BEYOND TAU 48, THE ENVIRONMENT WILL STILL SUPPORT ADDITIONAL 
DEVELOPMENT, THOUGH AT A SLIGHTLY SLOWER RATE, AS OUTFLOW BECOMES 
SLIGHTLY LESS ROBUST. DYNAMIC MODEL GUIDANCE IS IN VERY GOOD 
AGREEMENT WITH A MODEL SPREAD OF 120NM BY TAU 72. THEREFORE, THERE 
IS HIGH CONFIDENCE IN THIS PORTION OF THE JTWC FORECAST TRACK.
C. AFTER TAU 72, THE FORECAST BECOMES MUCH MORE COMPLEX AND 
UNCERTAIN AS THE STEERING PATTERN BEGINS TO BREAK DOWN. BY TAU 96, 
THE STEERING RIDGE BECOMES ERODED AND MOVED EASTWARD BY A DEEP MID-
LATITUDE TROUGH APPROACHING FROM THE NORTHWEST. A SECOND STR WILL 
DEVELOP BEHIND THE TROUGH OVER CENTRAL CHINA, WITH A LARGE COL AREA 
BETWEEN THE STRS, RESULTING IN A WEAK STEERING ENVIRONMENT FOR TS 
28W. AS THE SYSTEM ENTERS THIS REGION, IT WILL SLOW SIGNIFICANTLY, 
BECOMING NEARLY QUASI-STATIONARY BY TAU 96. ENVIRONMENTAL CONDITIONS 
WILL REMAIN FAVORABLE THROUGH TAU 96, ALLOWING TS 28W TO REACH A 
PEAK INTENSITY OF 130 KNOTS AT TAU 96. A SLOW WEAKENING TREND IS 
FORECAST AFTER THIS POINT, AS THE OHC IN THIS AREA IS RELATIVELY 
LOW, AND UPWELLING LEADS TO A REDUCTION IN THE AVAILABLE ENERGY TO 
SUPPORT THE SYSTEM, ESPECIALLY AS IT IS FORECAST TO BE QUASI-
STATIONARY IN THIS AREA. DYNAMIC MODEL GUIDANCE IS IN POOR AGREEMENT 
WITH A TRACK SPREAD OF 535NM BY TAU 120. CTCI AND JGSI ARE THE 
PRIMARY OUTLIERS TO THE NORTHEAST AND SOUTHWEST, RESPECTIVELY, WITH 
THE REMAINDER OF THE GUIDANCE SPREAD FAIRLY EQUALLY BETWEEN THE 
OUTLIERS. THEREFORE, THERE IS LOW CONFIDENCE IN THIS PORTION OF THE 
JTWC FORECAST TRACK WHICH IS PLACED NEAR THE MULTI-MODEL CONSENSUS. 
BEYOND THE FORECAST PERIOD, DYNAMIC MODEL GUIDANCE BECOMES EVEN MORE 
UNCERTAIN, WITH OVER 900NM SPREAD BETWEEN THE NAVGEM SOLUTION TO THE 
WEST OVER COASTAL CHINA, AND THE COAMPS-TC SOLUTION TO THE EAST OF 
OKINAWA.//
