6pm GMT model guidance is slightly more aggressive than the latest discussion taking Maria to 98kts. Need to keep an eye on this one given the NHC track.

TROPICAL STORM MARIA DISCUSSION NUMBER 11
NWS TPC/NATIONAL HURRICANE CENTER MIAMI FL
11 PM EDT SAT SEP 03 2005

MARIA APPEARED TO BE ON THE CUSP OF HURRICANE STATUS EARLIER
TODAY... BUT CONVECTION HAS SINCE BECOME SOMEWHAT LESS VIGOROUS.
THE OUTFLOW PATTERN REMAINS WELL ESTABLISHED... ALTHOUGH MAYBE NOW
A LITTLE MORE ELONGATED NORTHWEST TO SOUTHEAST. DVORAK INTENSITY
ESTIMATES ARE 65 KT FROM TAFB AND 55 KT FROM SAB... AND BOTH
AGENCIES HAVE ANALYZED A DATA T NUMBER OF 3.5. THE ADVISORY
INTENSITY IS KEPT AT 60 KT. THE CONVECTION SEEMS TO BE TRYING TO
MAKE A COMEBACK AROUND THE CENTER DURING THE LAST HOUR OR TWO... SO
THE RECENT SPUTTERING MIGHT ONLY BE TEMPORARY.

THE ESTIMATED INITIAL MOTION OF 330/12 KT IS JUST A LITTLE SLOWER
AND TO THE EAST COMPARED TO THE PREVIOUS ADVISORY. THE STEERING
TOWARD THE NORTH-NORTHWEST IS BEING PROVIDED BY A LOW TO MIDDLE
LEVEL RIDGE JUST EAST OF MARIA. THIS RIDGE IS FORECAST BY THE
DYNAMICAL MODELS TO BUILD NORTHWARD DURING THE NEXT COUPLE OF
DAYS... RESULTING IN ONLY A GRADUAL BEND IN THE TRACK TO THE NORTH.
THEREAFTER... A MIDDLE LATITUDE TROUGH CURRENTLY OVER THE
NORTHEASTERN U.S. IS EXPECTED TO MOVE OUT OVER THE WESTERN ATLANTIC
AND ERODE THE RIDGE... AND ACCELERATE MARIA NORTHEASTWARD AND AWAY
FROM NORTH AMERICA. THE DYNAMICAL MODELS ARE TIGHTLY CLUSTERED
BEFORE THE RECURVATURE... BUT AS USUAL DIFFER IN THE SUBSEQUENT
FORWARD SPEED. THE OFFICIAL FORECAST IS A BLEND OF THE GFDL AND
NOGAPS MODELS WHICH DEPICT A STRONGER SYSTEM THAN THE FASTER GFS
THAT KEEPS THE CIRCULATION OF MARIA SEEMINGLY TOO WEAK. THIS IS
JUST A HAIR TO THE EAST OF THE PREVIOUS ADVISORY THROUGH ABOUT 48
HOURS AND IS FASTER AT DAYS 3 THROUGH 5.

MARIA HAD BEEN STRENGTHENING TODAY WITHIN A WEAK SHEAR
ENVIRONMENT... BENEATH A NORTH-SOUTH ORIENTED UPPER-LEVEL RIDGE
THAT IS SANDWICHED IN BETWEEN AN UPPER-LEVEL LOW NEAR BERMUDA AND A
LARGE EXTRATROPICAL LOW PRESSURE SYSTEM OVER THE EASTERN ATLANTIC.
IT SHOULD REMAIN WITHIN THIS RIDGE FOR THE NEXT 48 HOURS OR SO...
AND SINCE THE SSTS WILL REMAIN GREATER THAN 28C DURING THIS
PERIOD... SOME FURTHER INTENSIFICATION IS ANTICIPATED... BUT NOT AS
MUCH AS BEFORE DUE TO THE RECENT LEVELLING OFF AND LESS BULLISH
GUIDANCE. THE OFFICIAL FORECAST PEAKS AT 80 KT... WHICH IS JUST A
LITTLE LESS THAN THE SHIPS GUIDANCE THROUGH 48 HOURS AND FAVORS THE
GFDL WEAKENING TREND THEREAFTER. AFTER RECURVATURE BEGINS... MARIA
IS EXPECTED TO ENCOUNTER STRONG MIDLATITUDE WESTERLIES TO THE NORTH
OF THE RIDGE. THE INCREASING WESTERLY SHEAR COMBINED WITH COOLER
SEA SURFACE TEMPERATURES SHOULD STEADY WEAKENING.

HURRICANE MARIA DISCUSSION NUMBER 12
NWS TPC/NATIONAL HURRICANE CENTER MIAMI FL
5 AM EDT SUN SEP 04 2005

THE INNER CORE CONVECTION OF MARIA HAS BECOME BETTER ORGANIZED THIS
MORNING AS REVEALED IN CONVENTIONAL AND MICROWAVE SATELLITE
IMAGERY. A 03/2333Z SSMI OVERPASS AND A 04/0152Z AMSU OVERPASS BOTH
INDICATED NEARLY CLOSED EYEWALL FEATURES...AND THE CENTRAL
CONVECTION HAS INCREASED SIGNIFICANTLY IN DEPTH AND ORGANIZATION
SINCE THEN...WITH TOPS COLDER THAN -80C NEAR THE CENTER. A T4.0/65
SATELLITE ESTIMATE WAS PROVIDED BY BOTH TAFB AND SAB...AND ODT
VALUES RANGE BETWEEN T4.3 TO T4.5. THEREFORE...MARIA HAS BEEN
UPGRADED TO THE FIFTH HURRICANE OF THE 2005 SEASON.

THE INITIAL MOTION ESTIMATE IS 340/12. MARIA IS EXPECTED TO CONTINUE
MOVING GENERALLY NORTHWARD AROUND THE WESTERN PORTION OF A LARGE
SUBTROPICAL RIDGE THAT IS ORIENTED EAST-WEST ALONG 34N LATITUDE.
AFTER MARIA REACHES THE RIDGE AXIS IN ABOUT 36 HOURS...GRADUAL
RECURVATURE TO THE NORTHEAST IS EXPECTED THROUGH 72 HOURS. AFTER
THAT...MORE RAPID MOTION IS FORECAST AS A STRONG DEEP-LAYER TROUGH
AND ASSOCIATED FRONTAL SYSTEM APPROACHES THE CYCLONE FROM THE WEST
AND ACCELERATES MARIA TO THE EAST-NORTHEAST. THE OFFICIAL TRACK IS
A LITTLE TO THE RIGHT OF THE PREVIOUS TRACK AND IS CLOSE TO THE NHC
MODEL CONSENSUS.

UPPER-LEVEL OUTFLOW IS GOOD IN ALL QUADRANTS...AND MARIA IS EXPECTED
TO REMAIN WITHIN A FAVORABLE UPPER-LEVEL FLOW PATTERN AND OVER SSTS
OF AT LEAST 28C FOR THE NEXT 36-42 HOURS. AS A RESULT...SOME MODEST
INTENSIFICATION IS FORECAST...WHICH IS SIMILAR TO THE SHIPS MODEL.
HOWEVER...GIVEN THE SMALL INNER CORE WIND FIELD AND EYE NOTED IN
MICROWAVE DATA...THERE IS THE POSSIBILITY OF MARIA REACHING 90 KT.
BY 48 HOURS...THOUGH...MARIA IS EXPECTED TO BE MOVING OVER STEADILY
COOLER WATER WHILE ENCOUNTERING INCREASING WEST-SOUTHWESTERLY SHEAR
OF 30-40 KT...WHICH SHOULD BRING ABOUT STEADY WEAKENING. BY 96
HOURS...MUCH COOLER WATER AND INTERACTION WITH THE AFOREMENTIONED
FRONTAL SYSTEM SHOULD RESULT IN EXTRATROPICAL TRANSITION.

HURRICANE MARIA DISCUSSION NUMBER 13
NWS TPC/NATIONAL HURRICANE CENTER MIAMI FL
11 AM EDT SUN SEP 04 2005

THERE HAS BEEN NO SIGNIFICANT INCREASE IN THE ORGANIZATION OF THE
CLOUD PATTERN...AND DVORAK T-NUMBERS FROM TAFB AND SAB REMAIN AT
4.0...CORRESPONDING TO A CURRENT INTENSITY OF 65 KT. MARIA HAS
FAIRLY WELL-ESTABLISHED UPPER-LEVEL OUTFLOW...PARTICULARLY IN
CHANNELS TO THE NORTHWEST AND SOUTHEAST. THE HURRICANE WILL
CONTINUE TO TRAVERSE WARM WATERS SO STRENGTHENING IS LIKELY UNTIL
WESTERLY VERTICAL SHEAR INCREASES SIGNIFICANTLY...WHICH IS EXPECTED
TO OCCUR IN 48 HOURS OR SO. IN 4-5 DAYS...GLOBAL MODELS GUIDANCE
SUGGESTS THAT MARIA WILL BE TRANSFORMING INTO A VIGOROUS
EXTRATROPICAL CYCLONE. THE OFFICIAL INTENSITY FORECAST IS
IDENTICAL TO THE PREVIOUS ONE.

MOTION CONTINUES TOWARD THE NORTH-NORTHWEST...340/11. MARIA IS
BEING STEERED BY THE FLOW ON THE SOUTHWEST PERIPHERY OF A
MID-TROPOSPHERIC ANTICYCLONE OVER THE SUBTROPICAL EASTERN ATLANTIC.
A 500 MB TROUGH CURRENTLY OVER THE NORTHEASTERN UNITED STATES IS
FORECAST TO MOVE EASTWARD...AND APPROACH MARIA'S LONGITUDE WITHIN A
COUPLE OF DAYS. THIS SHOULD CAUSE THE TROPICAL CYCLONE TO TURN
NORTHWARD AND NORTHEASTWARD. THERE ARE SIGNIFICANT DIFFERENCES IN
THE FORWARD SPEED AT 3-5 DAYS PREDICTED BY THE VARIOUS DYNAMICAL
TRACK MODELS. SOME GUIDANCE...SUCH AS THE GFS...SHOW MARIA OR ITS
EXTRATROPICAL VERSION BECOMING WELL EMBEDDED IN THE FLOW ASSOCIATED
WITH THE TROUGH AND ACCELERATING EASTWARD. OTHER MODELS SUGGEST
THAT THE TROUGH COULD BYPASS THE SYSTEM. THE OFFICIAL FORECAST IS
A COMPROMISE OF THESE POSSIBILITIES AND SHOWS NO ACCELERATION
THROUGH THE END OF THE PERIOD. THIS IS JUST SLIGHTLY TO THE RIGHT
OF THE PREVIOUS ADVISORY FORECAST TRACK.

MARIA'S REMARKS:

The 10th time that the "M" letter is used (Martha 69, Marco 90, Marco 96, Marilyn 95, Michelle 01, Michael 00, Mindy 03, Mitch 98, Matthew 04).

The 7th time that the "M" letter becomes a hurricane (Martha 69, Marco 96, Marilyn 95, Michelle 01, Michael 00, Mitch 98).

The easternmost "M" named system, in formation.

HURRICANE MARIA DISCUSSION NUMBER 14
NWS TPC/NATIONAL HURRICANE CENTER MIAMI FL
5 PM EDT SUN SEP 04 2005

AN EYE HAS BEEN EVIDENT ON VISIBLE IMAGES TODAY...AND DVORAK
CLASSIFICATIONS NOW SUPPORT 75-KT WINDS. SINCE THE HURRICANE HAS
WELL-DEVELOPED UPPER-TROPOSPHERIC OUTFLOW...A WELL-DEFINED INNER
CORE...AND IS MOVING OVER WARM WATERS...ADDITIONAL INTENSIFICATION
SEEMS LIKELY. BASED ON THE CURRENT TREND...MARIA IS LIKELY TO
STRENGTHEN TO AT LEAST CATEGORY 2 STATUS WITHIN THE NEXT DAY OR SO.
I HAVE BLENDED THE SHIPS AND GFDL OUTPUT AS GUIDANCE FOR THE WIND
SPEED FORECAST. IN A COUPLE OF DAYS...DYNAMICAL MODELS SHOW A
SIGNIFICANT INCREASE IN WESTERLY VERTICAL SHEAR...SO WEAKENING IS
LIKELY TO BE UNDERWAY BY THEN. LATER IN THE FORECAST PERIOD...
MARIA IS FORECAST TO BEGIN MOVING OVER COOLER WATERS AND LOSING
TROPICAL CHARACTERISTICS. HOWEVER GLOBAL MODELS SUGGEST THAT THE
EXTRATROPICAL VERSION OF MARIA WILL BE RATHER LARGE AND VIGOROUS
FOR A WHILE.

THE HURRICANE HAS MOVED A LITTLE FASTER TOWARD THE NORTH-NORTHWEST
AND THE INITIAL MOTION IS ABOUT 340/12...PERHAPS 13 KT IN THE
SHORTER TERM. THE GENERAL TRACK FORECAST REASONING REMAINS THE
SAME. A 500 MB SHORTWAVE TROUGH NEAR 70W WILL PROGRESS EASTWARD
AND IS EXPECTED TO BE SITUATED NEAR THE LONGITUDE OF MARIA IN ABOUT
48 HOURS. THIS SYNOPTIC FEATURE SHOULD CAUSE THE HURRICANE TO TURN
NORTHWARD...AND THEN NORTHEASTWARD. IN SPITE OF THE FASTER INITIAL
MOTION...THE TRACK FORECAST GUIDANCE IS GENERALLY SLOWER THAN IN
THE PREVIOUS PACKAGE. THEREFORE THE OFFICIAL FORECAST IS A LITTLE
SLOWER THAN THE PREVIOUS ONE...AND CLOSE TO THE DYNAMICAL
CONSENSUS.

Please Maria don't kill the developing tropical storm to your southwest. Be a good storm.

Actually it would be a good storm if it did kill the developing T.S to it's SW.

No the system to the southwest is moving northeast with it. So it would be a fish any way.
