Invest 90 Looking more likely as time passes

Models now showing a more NW track

I also highly recommend the following website if you do not know about it, as though Storm is not always right his information is good and he does share / participate in live discussion / radio / webcasts when major hurricanes are approaching the US Coast as to what the path and track etc will be

An LLCC is now clear from visual image loops and recon should enable TD 4 to start at approx 6-7pm time BST.

However the system is suffering from shear to the north and lack of inflow due to proximity to the Yucatan. Both of these should lessen during the next 12 hrs giving the storm a chance to strengthen.

Recon have just flown through the centre at 1006mb and found winds in the 30-34kts region so just shy of TS so far, however clear westerly winds have been found so a confirmed LLCC exists and this is at least TD 4, (update due very soon from NHC), recon might find stronger winds as the NE has not been sampled so far taking it straight to TS Don.

Winds of upto 40kts have been found at surface so this will likely be TS Don.

Yep, looks like TD4 at least. Busy start to the season with 3rd TC formation in July.

Some quite strong winds just found, conservatively all of them are TS strength, and some of the Surface winds (kts) shown in the 3rd column from the right are upto 57kts, this is certainly rain contaminated but is still very very strong.

Out of nowhere we seem to have invest invest 91L, this is currently out in the mid atlantic, with a strong ridge above it's quite far south and a small shift WNW is progged by the models. This far south it's in almost perfect conditions with lots of moisture and low shear. NHC have immediately taken it (literally within and hr of being named) upto orange alert and 30%. Ships takes this to a hurricane when it hits the leeward islands in approx 96 hrs, even the globals are picking up on it a bit at 00Z, GFS makes it Emily just after the leewards.

The Central satellite is the best to watch it on until a floater is in position, but this will likely be later today.

You could be right Cookie, GFDL takes this to a hurricane at the leewards as well and then a strong Major CAT 3 into Jamaica, HWRF weakens the region and send her further north into fish territory.

Florida weather forecasts telling us to keep an eye on the forecast for early next week, they think there's the chance of that hurricane moving north - hopefully not, I'm happy with these distant evening lightning shows!

Now a 70% chance of development.

Hurricane Ivan repeat? (2004)

Must say that i am suprised how few people there are in this section this year.

Provided 90L makes Tropical Storm before tommorow then we are just 20 days behind 2005 at this stage.

Anybody got the list of the most active seasons to this stage, i would be willing to bet thet we are near the top.

An interesting weekend watching the inevitable "Emily" forming then?

All eyes on the GOES updates.

Any links to surface pressure n such would be appreciated peeps? (lost all my faves:()

Good banding, good lower level convergence.

Just needs a defned circulation.

Are the models still forecasting it to 'bomb'?

I thought they removed Emily in 2005?

Yep Emily is coming along nicely today, it's just slowly gettings it's act together in a comfortable low shear, high SST environment. I think it has a LLCC tbh, but that the lack of winds stops it from being TD 5 (i.e it's not reached the minmum of 20kts yet.

Tracks are shifting further south, which unfortunately means if it develops its likely to not be a fish and will hit somewhere in the islands.

I'm just a tag worried that we may face another recurve season sith extra-trops hitting Africa/Spain/Us!! I don't know the type of set up favourable for this but I do remember some recurves into the med and on Spain in 05'?

Now 80%.

Iceberg, i think that you are correct in that weak wind gusts are the only thing slowing development.

TD5 inside 24 hours!

Just been upped to 90% in the last 5 minutes or so. What are the SSTs and shear levels like along 91L's expected path?

Really good on both counts near perfect conditions

Good morning to anyone following 91L.

91L looks to be still getting her act together, however it is happening, (NHC have now upped to 100% the chance of a tropical storm in the next 48 hrs, which usually means that an upgrade is imminent).

Just in case anyone is wondering this isn't taking along time to develop, quite often at this size they can take several days to get the central convection sustained for a TD/TS and the envelop for 91L is big (approx 4 times bigger than Don).

Recon are due in later today approx 6-7pm time.

The models are really split, however the first thing to say is that they all forecast her to turn into a hurricane.

The globals have her threatening quite a few places unfortunately leewards, then Jamaica, then PR and then Bahamas. The re-curve should be strong enough due to a trough down the eastern seaboard to prevent anykind of US hit, however it's still very early days.

Anyway certaintly 5-7 days of watching ahead.

On a UK note the models are struggling to place any future Emily at an upper level, with a sharp atlantic re-curve it will almost certiantly re-inforce any ridge across the UK improving our weather, but the models are will not pick up on this for another 2-3 days which is worth remembering in the model thread IMO.

Convection has recently flared around the LLCC on the latest IR loops. Dvorak is now approaching T2.0 and the initialisation for the 06Z models, Ships etc, was 30 kts.

It's now only down to timings as to when NHC declare it and also whether it's a TD or TS, atm 91L is a TD IMO.

If the convective banding can form a proper CDO then we might get some interesting readings by the time recon get in there later today.

Likely TD5.

Shame its forecast to recurve.
