...TROPICAL WAVES...

TROPICAL WAVE ADDED ALONG 16W S OF 10N MOVING W 10 KT. ALTHOUGH

IT IS LOW-LATITUDE..THIS IS A SIGNIFICANT WAVE WITH A BROAD

CIRCULATION. SCATTERED MODERATE CONVECTION IS W OF THE WAVE

FROM 2N-6N BETWEEN 18W-21.5W.

TROPICAL WAVE ADDED ALONG 41W S OF 7N MOVING W 15 KT. A V-TYPE

SIGNATURE IS EMBEDDED MOSTLY WITHIN THE ITCZ AND THERE IS ALSO

GOOD SUPPORT FROM MODEL FIELDS FOR THIS WAVE. LONG TERM LOOPS

SUGGEST THAT IT SLOWLY MOVED TO THIS LOCATION AND NOW IS MOVING

MORE QUICKLY UNDER THE BUILDING ATLC RIDGE. SCATTERED MODERATE

CONVECTION WITHIN 60 NM OF LINE 3.5N36W 3N43W EQ41W.

TROPICAL WAVE IS ALONG 78W S OF 14N MOVING W NEAR 10-15 KT. THE

WAVE IS AIDING IN TRIGGERING SHOWERS AND TSTMS ALONG AND TO THE

W OF THE AXIS OVER WRN COLOMBIA THRU PANAMA S OF 11N. A SLOW

MOVEMENT TO THE WAVE IS EXPECTED DUE TO WEAK MID-LEVEL WINDS TO

THE N.

...ITCZ...

ITCZ AXIS IS CENTERED ALONG 7N10W 2N30W 2N42W EQ50W. OUTSIDE OF

TROPICAL WAVES.. WIDELY SCATTERED MODERATE S OF 2N W OF 44W AND

FROM 2.5N-6N BETWEEN 10N-14W.

...TROPICAL WAVES...

TROPICAL WAVE IS ALONG 17W S OF 7N MOVING W 5-10 KT. BROAD

ROTATION IS ASSOCIATED WITH THIS WAVE. NO ASSOCIATED DEEP

CONVECTION.

TROPICAL WAVE IS ALONG 43W S OF 5N MOVING W 10-15 KT.

WELL-DEFINED SIGNATURE CURVATURE ASSOCIATED WITH THIS WAVE.

HOWEVER...MOST OF THE WAVE IS ALREADY INLAND OVER SOUTH AMERICA

AND BE HARD TO TRACK OVER THE NEXT FEW DAYS. ASSOCIATED

SCATTERED MODERATE/ISOLATED STRONG CONVECTION IS WITHIN 90/120

NM OF LINE FROM S OF THE EQUATOR NEAR 1N36W TO THE ITCZ AXIS

NEAR 1N42W.

TROPICAL WAVE IS ALONG 79W S OF 12N DRIFTING W. THIS WAVE HAS

BECOME VERY DIFFICULT TO LOCATE OVER THE PAST 24 HOURS. IT IS

EMBEDDED WITHIN AN AREA OF STRONG CONVECTION ASSOCIATED WITH AN

UPPER LEVEL RIDGE AND AT THE BASE OF A SURFACE TROUGH IN THE

CARIBBEAN. SEE CARIBBEAN SECTION FOR ANY CONVECTION.

...ITCZ...

ITCZ AXIS IS CENTERED ALONG 5N8W 5N22W 6N32W 4N39W EQ51W.

SCATTERED MODERATE/STRONG CONVECTION IS FROM 1N-5N BETWEEN

19W-24W. CLUSTERS OF SCATTERED MODERATE CONVECTION ARE WITHIN

150 NM S OF THE AXIS FROM 10W-15W AND N OF THE AXIS FROM

40W-48W.

TROPICAL WEATHER DISCUSSION

NWS TPC/NATIONAL HURRICANE CENTER MIAMI FL

805 AM EDT SUN MAY 21 2006

TROPICAL WEATHER DISCUSSION FOR NORTH AMERICA...CENTRAL

AMERICA...THE GULF OF MEXICO...THE CARIBBEAN SEA...NORTHEASTERN

SECTIONS OF SOUTH AMERICA...AND THE ATLANTIC OCEAN TO THE

AFRICAN COAST FROM THE EQUATOR TO 32N. THE FOLLOWING INFORMATION

IS BASED ON SATELLITE IMAGERY...WEATHER OBSERVATIONS...RADAR...

AND METEOROLOGICAL ANALYSIS.

BASED ON 0600 UTC SURFACE ANALYSIS AND SATELLITE IMAGERY THROUGH

1015 UTC.

...TROPICAL WAVES...

TROPICAL WAVE IS ALONG 27W S OF 7N MOVING W 15 KT. THIS

LOW-LATITUDE WAVE IS EMBEDDED WITHIN THE ITCZ. THERE IS SOME

CYCLONIC TURNING ASSOCIATED WITH THIS WAVE BUT IT IS RATHER

BROAD AND LESS DISCERNIBLE THAN YESTERDAY. THE WAVE WILL LIKELY

REMAIN ILL DEFINED AS IT MOVES WESTWARD IN A DRY ENVIRONMENT.

TROPICAL WAVE IS ALONG 52W S OF 7N MOVING W 15-20 KT. THIS WAVE

STILL HAS SOME SIGNATURE OF AN INVERTED V-PATTERN EMBEDDED

WITHIN THE ITCZ. MUCH OF THE WAVE IS NOW INLAND OVER S AMERICA.

SCATTERED MODERATE CONVECTION IS WITHIN 180 NM W OF THE WAVE

AXIS FROM 5N-8N. WIDELY SCATTERED SHOWERS AND ISOLATED TSTMS ARE

ELSEWHERE. LITTLE IMPACT IS EXPECTED IN THE CARIBBEAN FROM THIS

WAVE OVER THE NEXT 3-5 DAYS AS THE MAJORITY OF THE MOISTURE IS

EXPECTED TO MOVE ACROSS S AMERICA.

TROPICAL WAVE ALONG 87W S OF 13N MOVING W 10-15 KT. THIS WAVE IS

MAINLY IN THE EPAC BUT ITS NORTHERN EXTENSION LIES OVER CENTRAL

AMERICA. A WEAK BROAD 1009 MB LOW HAS DEVELOPED ALONG THE WAVE

AXIS NEAR 9N. THE WAVE IN CONJUNCTION WITH STRONG SWLY FLOW AND

A SFC TROUGH IS PRODUCING CLUSTERS OF SCATTERED MODERATE TO

STRONG CONVECTION ACROSS THE SW CARIBBEAN AND CENTRAL AMERICA.

THIS FEATURE IS NOT EXPECTED TO BECOME MUCH BETTER DEFINED OVER

THE NEXT COUPLE OF DAYS AS MOVES FURTHER W ACROSS THE EPAC.

...ITCZ...

ITCZ AXIS IS CENTERED ALONG 10N13W 3N25W 2N40W 4N51W. SCATTERED

MODERATE CONVECTION IS WITHIN 120 NM EITHER SIDE OF THE AXIS

BETWEEN 20W-28W ASSOCIATED WITH THE TROPICAL WAVE ALONG 27W.

SIMILAR CONVECTION IS WITHIN 120 NM N OF THE AXIS BETWEEN

32W-41W. SCATTERED SHOWERS/ISOLATED TSTMS ARE W OF 46W WITHIN

180 NM EITHER SIDE OF THE AXIS ENHANCED BY THE TROPICAL WAVE

ALONG 52W.

...DISCUSSION...

GULF OF MEXICO...

QUIET WEATHER CONTINUES ACROSS MUCH OF THE AREA AS A 1017 MB

HIGH PRES SYSTEM REMAINS CENTERED IN THE E GULF NEAR 27N86W.

IN THE UPPER LEVELS...UPPER TROUGH EXTENDS FROM A SMALL UPPER

LOW OVER N MEXICO NEAR 25N98W EWD TO NORTHERN FLORIDA. STRONG

SUBSIDENCE AND ASSOCIATED DRY/STABLE AIR ALOFT ACCOMPANIES THE

TROUGH DUE TO UPPER LEVEL CONFLUENCE KEEPING SKIES FAIR TO

MOSTLY CLEAR ACROSS THE N GULF. BROKEN MID-HIGH LEVEL CLOUDINESS

IS STREAMING NEWARD FROM S MEXICO TO S FLORIDA DRIVEN BY A JET

STREAM BRANCH ON THE W PERIPHERY OF AN UPPER ANTICYCLONE IN THE

CARIBBEAN. WEAK HIGH PRESSURE WILL REMAIN ACROSS THE GULF FOR

THE NEXT FEW DAYS...HOWEVER TROPICAL MOISTURE ACROSS THE NW

CARIBBEAN WILL PUSH FURTHER NORTH AND BEGIN TO INFLUENCE THE

SOUTHERN PORTIONS OF THE GULF LATER TODAY...AND POSSIBLE BECOME

MORE WIDESPREAD OVER THE CENTRAL AND EASTERN GULF ON MON/TUES.

CARIBBEAN SEA AND ATLANTIC OCEAN W OF 55W...

AN UPPER LEVEL TROUGH/RIDGE PATTERN REMAINS IN PLACE ACROSS THIS

AREA. THE DEEP-LAYERED TROUGH COVERS THE N GULF AND W ATLC N OF

28N. AT THE SURFACE...THE FRONT HAS WEAKENED TO A TROUGH IN THE

DISCUSSION AREA AND EXTENDS FROM 32N58W SWARD TO THE BAHAMAS

NEAR 23N75W THEN CONTINUES SSWWARD INTO THE W CARIBBEAN TO NEAR

NICARAGUA. BROKEN TO OVERCAST MID/HIGH LEVEL CLOUDINESS ALONG

WITH WIDELY SCATTERED SHOWERS AND ISOLATED TSTMS ARE WITHIN 90

NM EITHER SIDE OF THE TROUGH N OF 23N. CLUSTERS OF STRONG

TSTMS ARE OVER THE W CARIBBEAN WITHIN 180 NM W OF THE TROUGH

AXIS S OF 22N. FARTHER E...A MID/UPPER HIGH IS LOCATED JUST N

OF HAITI NEAR 21N72W WITH RIDGING EXTENDING SW TO HONDURAS AND

NE TO BEYOND 32N50W. A 60-80 KT SWLY JET STREAM IS RIDING OVER

THE THE UPPER ANTICYCLONE AND EXTENDS FROM THE E BAY OF CAMPECHE

NORTHEASTWARD T0 S FLORIDA AND CONTINUES NEWARD BEYOND 32N58W.

WINDS IN THE RANGE OF 60-80 KT ARE NOTED WITHIN THIS JET MAINLY

W OF 65W. STRONG SUBSIDENCE IS ENCOMPASSING MUCH OF THE

CARIBBEAN S OF 19N AND CURRENTLY E OF 82W...PUSHING WWARD.

TRADEWINDS ARE GENERALLY IN THE 15-20 KT RANGE E OF

80W...LIGHTER WINDS W OF THERE DUE TO THE WEAKNESS IN THE RIDGE.

TRADES WILL BECOME MORE UNIFORM AND INCREASE SLIGHTLY AS THE

CNTRL ATLC SFC RIDGE EDGES A LITTLE CLOSER. MOISTURE RELATED TO

THE SURFACE TROUGH WILL MOVE WWD TOWARDS THE YUCATAN LATER TODAY

AND WILL LIKELY AFFECT THE NW CARIBBEAN AND THE W ATLC OVER THE

NEXT FEW DAYS. THE LARGE VOLCANIC ASH CLOUDS DETECTED YESTERDAY

OVER THE E CARIBBEAN DUE TO AN ERUPTION OF THE MONTSERRAT

VOLCANO SAT MORNING IS STILL EVIDENT ON SATELLITE IMAGERY BUT IS

BREAKING UP FROM 66W-72W FROM 12N-17N.

THE REMAINDER OF ATLANTIC OCEAN...

A SHARP UPPER LEVEL TROUGH IS OVER THE CNTRL ATLC WITH THE AXIS

EXTENDING THRU 30N44W THROUGH AN UPPER LOW NEAR 21N48W AND INTO

THE DEEP TROPICS NEAR 10N54W. THE UPPER LOW IS HELPING TO

TRANSPORT UPPER MOISTURE FROM THE DEEP TROPICS NEWARD WITHIN 180

NM TO THE RIGHT OF A LINE ALONG 10N50W 20N44W 28N40W. AN UPPER

HIGH IS NEAR 16N32W WITH MID/UPPER LEVEL RIDGING COVERING THE

AREA S OF 17N AND E OF 37W. DIFFLUENCE S OF THE RIDGE IS

ENHANCING ITCZ CONVECTION. AN UPPER TROUGH IS MOVING SE OVER

EXTREME NW AFRICA. THIS TROUGH IS CARRYING MOISTURE FROM THE

UPPER TROUGH IN THE CENTRAL ATLC RIDING OVER THE UPPER HIGH INTO

W AFRICA. AT THE SFC...A STRONG SPRAWLING 1027 MB HIGH CENTERED

NEAR 31N36W COVERS THE ENTIRE REGION SUPPLYING FAIR WEATHER

ACROSS A GOOD PORTION OF THE ATLANTIC OCEAN. TRADE WINDS ARE

RATHER STRONG ACROSS THE AREA AND WILL LIKELY REMAIN THAT WAY

FOR THE NEXT FEW DAYS.

$$

CANGIALOSI

I notice that trade winds are set to increase, does this increase sheer or increase the chances of tropical development.

TROPICAL WAVE IS ALONG 27W/28W S OF 7N MOVING W 15 KT. WAVE IS

NOT WELL-DEFINED IN AVAILABLE SATELLITE IMAGERY WHICH SUGGEST A

BROAD AREA OF TURNING AND NO OBVIOUS WAVE AXIS. THE CONVECTION

DOES NOT SEEM TO BE WELL-MATCHED TO THE BEST TURNING IN THE

LOW/MID-LEVELS. HOWEVER THE GFS MODEL SUGGESTS THIS WAVE WILL

BE HAVE A FAIR NUMBER OF TSTMS WITH FAVORABLE UPPER DIFFLUENCE

THOUGH LIKELY REMAINING BROAD AS WELL. SCATTERED MODERATE FROM

1N-4.5N BETWEEN 23W-28.5W.

TROPICAL WAVE IS ALONG 53W/54W S OF 7N MOVING W 15-20 KT. THERE

IS SOME HINT OF THE WAVE IN THE CUMULUS CLOUD FIELD OVER S

AMERICA WITH BROAD CYCLONIC FLOW... OTHERWISE THE WAVE IS

BECOMING VERY HARD TO TRACK. ISOLATED TSTMS OVERLAND N OF 1N E

Ah, just seen this thread, keep it up crimsone because its from these tropical waves that big things form.

Actually, I think rather then creating new threads for each wave feature, this can be the wave thread!!!

Only thing of note bar the weak TW reported is a moderate UUL over the Gulf of Mexico that is drifting NNE and is produciing some fairly beefy convective cells which looks like homing in on Florida. Tropical development for this storm looks low though and I certainly be suprised if anything actually formed from this.

Might as well do a quick update on the upper Low feature system that was present yesterday. Well the news is is that its now pretty much dead I reckon and the chances of anything developing down at the surface is pretty much gone. It's still throwing some convection across Florida but thats the furtherest extent to its present actvity.

As for the other wave, it is weak at the moment and there seems to be very little convection at all present on it so I don't think it'll come to anything either.

I just thought I'd post the 6-hourly to back up what you said about that tropical wave being weak. I think it's also worth a mention (even though it's the EPAC) that that first Atlantic wave - the one that nearly died but somehow made it to the other side of Mexico- is now expected to develop! :lol: It's somewhere near 100W at the moment. I guess it must have been helped along by sitting in all that convection after crossing Mexico for a couple of days? What do you think Kold?

Anyway, back to the Atlantic for a moment..

TROPICAL WEATHER OUTLOOK

NWS TPC/NATIONAL HURRICANE CENTER MIAMI FL

1000 AM PDT FRI MAY 26 2006

FOR THE EASTERN NORTH PACIFIC...EAST OF 140 DEGREES WEST LONGITUDE..

THE AREA OF LOW PRESSURE CENTERED ABOUT 230 MILES SOUTH OF ACAPULCO

IS SHOWING SOME SIGNS OF ORGANIZATION. WHILE UPPER-LEVEL WINDS HAVE

BECOME LESS CONDUCIVE FOR ADDITIONAL DEVELOPMENT...ONLY A SLIGHT

INCREASE IN ORGANIZATION COULD LEAD TO THE FORMATION OF A TROPICAL

DEPRESSION LATER TODAY OR TOMORROW. EVEN IF A DEPRESSION DOES NOT

FORM...HEAVY RAINS COULD SPREAD ACROSS PORTIONS OF SOUTHEASTERN

MEXICO DURING THE NEXT COUPLE OF DAYS. THESE RAINS COULD CAUSE

LIFE-THREATENING FLASH FLOODS AND MUD SLIDES...ESPECIALLY IN

MOUNTAINOUS TERRAIN.

ELSEWHERE...TROPICAL STORM FORMATION IS NOT EXPECTED THROUGH

SATURDAY.

FORECASTER KNABB/MAINELLI

...TROPICAL WAVES...

A TROPICAL WAVE IS ALONG 59W/60W SOUTH OF 6N MOVING WEST 10 KT.

IT IS MOVING THROUGH GUYANA NOW. SCATTERED MODERATE SHOWERS TO

ISOLATED STRONG THUNDERSTORMS ARE WITHIN 15 NM ON EITHER SIDE OF

A LINE FROM 1N54W TO 2N57W TO 3N59W STRETCHING FROM BRAZIL TO

SOUTHERN GUYANA. SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS WERE OVER CENTRAL

GUYANA EARLIER. PRECIPITATION HAS BEEN DISSIPATING SOMEWHAT WITH

WARMING CLOUD TOP TEMPERATURES DURING THE LAST FEW HOURS. IT IS

MORE PROBABLE THAT ALL THIS PRECIPITATION IS RELATED TO THE ITCZ

RATHER THAN TO THE 59W/60W TROPICAL WAVE.

...THE ITCZ...

ITCZ 7N9W 4N20W 3N30W 3N40W 3N50W 3N53W. WIDELY SCATTERED

MODERATE SHOWERS TO ISOLATED STRONG THUNDERSTORMS ARE FOUND

FROM 2N TO 6N BETWEEN 7W AND 12W...AND FROM 4N TO 8N BETWEEN

32W AND 47W. ISOLATED MODERATE SHOWERS AND POSSIBLE

THUNDERSTORMS ARE FOUND ELSEWHERE SOUTH OF 10N EAST OF 55W.

...TROPICAL WAVES...

A TROPICAL WAVE HAS ENTERED EASTERN VENEZUELA ALONG 62W/63W

SOUTH OF 9N. NO RAWINSONDE DATA ARE AVAILABLE IN ORDER TO TRACK

ITS MOVEMENT WELL. NO WELL ORGANIZED AREAS OF SHOWERS AND

THUNDERSTORMS ARE ACCOMPANYING THIS WAVE AT THIS TIME.

MOST IF NOT ALL THE PRECIPITATION ANYWHERE NEAR THIS WAVE

SINCE IT REACHED THE SOUTH AMERICA CONTINENT HAS BEEN RELATED

MORE TO THE ITCZ THAN ANYTHING ELSE.

...THE ITCZ...

ITCZ 8N13W 3N20W 2N30W 2N50W. WIDELY SCATTERED MODERATE SHOWERS

TO ISOLATED STRONG THUNDERSTORMS ARE FOUND FROM 3N TO 8N BETWEEN

EQUATOR TO 2N BETWEEN 44W AND 47W. ISOLATED MODERATE SHOWERS AND

POSSIBLE THUNDERSTORMS ARE ELSEWHERE SOUTH OF 10N EAST OF 60W.
