Also note this for the MS/LA/TX people.

IF I DID NOT HAVE A PREVIOUS FORECAST
TO MAINTAIN SOME CONTINUITY WITH...I WOULD HAVE SHIFTED THE TRACK
EVEN FURTHER TO THE LEFT. MEANWHILE...SINCE THE MOTION IS STILL
WEST-NORTHWESTWARD

Re: 5AM Discussion: Ivan currently experiencing 20kt shear

The SHIPS model shows
close to 20 kt of westerly shear affecting Ivan but relaxes this
shear a bit at 24 and 36 hours before increasing it significantly.
The official intensity forecast shows gradual weakening after 12
hours but Ivan could still be a formidable hurricane when it
reaches the northern Gulf of Mexico coast.


Doesn't seem to be really affecting it and its weakening rapidly. The significant shear is yet to be seen along the North Gulf Coast.

He also mentions the possibility of it slamming into the Yucatan Peninsula.

Meanwhile...since the motion is still
west-northwestward...the center could miss the western tip of Cuba
and move through the Yucatan Channel and could even approach the
Yucatan Peninsula if a 300 degree heading is maintained for another
24 hours.

Ummm, the SHIPs model is forecasting shear. It doesn't say he's experiencing shear. And I don't see any evidence of 20 kt shear on satellite right now.

CIMSS is showing the shear clearly but Ivan is not being affected much.

Wow, this is strange, eye rotating within larger eye

#6967 Postby logybogy » Mon Sep 13, 2004 4:04 am

Look at this loop and watch that ragged eye. it's actually rotating in a circle within the larger eye.

Freaky.

he maintained continuity with the track, but the intensity forecast reasoning form forecaster to forecaster is not being maintained, 1st its shear, then its cold water, then its shear again

Derek, I've never seen anything like this storm. HUGE area of convection, feeding from 2 oceans now, enormous eye. It really looks like he's trying to become an annular hurricane.

NorthGaWeather wrote:There is an upper level low over NRN MS and the weak trough over the Gulf Coast States will create this weakness.


Is this a contradiction, or I am I missing something?

Recon should be in there shortly if not already.

This shear is nothing more then a flie to this hurricane. This hurricane is a cat5 which can pump up a giant upper level area of high pressure. Which will never allow shear to get any where near the center.

any small amount of shear, even as little as 10KT, will bring about a significant weakening of Ivan

It will create a weakness with the low pressure but will not act like a huge trough digging into the area turning it NE quickly.

Well this 20 kt shear hasn't done that this early morning.

Yeah, Derek, where's the weakening? There's still deep reds wrapping all around the large eye trying to form.

Latest recon still showed Cat 5 winds.

Pressure from vortex back down a tiny bit to 918 (although winds down a bit). Considering how ragged he looks right now that's pretty impressive, he's held steady all night now. Also looks to be going about true northwest now, could finally be the start of the slow north turn everyone is expecting.

Thanks for the chuckle kokomo.

southtexasgal...yesterday I would have told you no way, right now nothing would surprise me. Ivan was given a forecast and he is not being very cooperative. The latest discussion says it all.
