Southwest IO: Tropical Disturbance 01R (91S)

#1 Postby Chacor » Wed Oct 10, 2007 6:52 am

Second invest of the Southwest Indian Ocean season...
AN AREA OF CONVECTION HAS PERSISTED NEAR 5.3S 67.5E,
APPROXIMATELY 325 NM WEST-NORTHWEST OF DIEGO GARCIA. CONVECTION IS
FLARING NEAR AN AREA OF ELONGATED TROUGHING SHOWN IN A 091336Z QUIKSCAT
IMAGE. ANIMATED ENHANCED INFRARED SATELLITE IMAGERY SHOWS CONVECTION
OVER THE DEVELOPING LOW LEVEL CIRCULATION CENTER. UPPER LEVEL ANALYSIS
INDICATES THE SYSTEM IS UNDER GOOD DIVERGENCE ALOFT AND LOW TO MODERATE
VERTICAL WIND SHEAR. DUE TO THE FAVORABLE ENVIRONMENT ALOFT AND
DEVELOPING LOW LEVEL CIRCULATION CENTER, THE POTENTIAL FOR THE
DEVELOPMENT OF A SIGNIFICANT TROPICAL CYCLONE WITHIN THE NEXT 24 HOURS
IS POOR.

I spent almost a week in Diego Garcia, the British Indian Ocean Territory, part of the Chagos Archipelago.

Had to muster at 7 am to work, but knocked off for the day after lunch, and the USAF had something called a Class Six store or something, with most excellently low prices on beer.


Then I flew off on the C-141 to al-Masirah.

That report says conditions are favorable yet the chances for development are "poor". Doesn't make sense.

Look at the southern hemisphere clockwise spin.

He's referring to the JTWC's POOR.

"DUE TO THE FAVORABLE ENVIRONMENT ALOFT AND
DEVELOPING LOW LEVEL CIRCULATION CENTER, THE POTENTIAL FOR THE
DEVELOPMENT OF A SIGNIFICANT TROPICAL CYCLONE WITHIN THE NEXT 24 HOURS
IS POOR."

That means the chances has been upgraded from none, to poor. If it continues to organize it will be upgraded to fair, and finally good.

Read again, "poor in the next 24 hours." Meaning that in the next 24 hours the system is not likely to develop, which seems to be right.

THE AREA OF CONVECTION PREVIOUSLY LOCATED NEAR 5.2S 67.4E,
IS NOW LOCATED NEAR 7.0S 63.9E, APPROXIMATELY 510 NM WEST OF DIEGO
GARCIA. RECENT ANIMATED INFRARED IMAGERY INDICATES INCREASINGLY
PERSISTENT CONVECTION NEAR THE LOW LEVEL CIRCULATION CENTER (LLCC).
A 101813Z AMSU/B MICROWAVE PASS SHOWS INCREASED CONVECTIVE BANDING
ON THE SOUTHERN PERIPHERY OF THE STORM NOW WRAPPING TOWARD THE LLCC.
A 101652Z ASCAT PASS INDICATES THAT THE LLCC IS BEGINNING TO
CONSOLIDATE, WITH WINDS OF 15-20 KTS NEAR THE CORE. THE STRONGEST
WINDS ARE SOUTH OF THE LLCC, ENHANCED BY GRADIENT FLOW. THE UPPER
LEVEL ENVIRONMENT REMAINS FAVORABLE FOR DEVELOPMENT WITH AN
ANTICYCLONE OVER THE DISTURBANCE PROVIDING MULTIDIRECTIONAL
DIFFLUENCE. MAXIMUM SUSTAINED SURFACE WINDS ARE ESTIMATED AT 20 TO
25 KNOTS. MINIMUM SEA LEVEL PRESSURE IS ESTIMATED TO BE NEAR 1007
MB. DUE TO INCREASED ORGANIZATION OF THE LLCC, THE POTENTIAL FOR THE
DEVELOPMENT OF A SIGNIFICANT TROPICAL CYCLONE WITHIN THE NEXT 24
HOURS IS UPGRADED TO FAIR.

PART 4: OUTLOOK FOR NEXT 24 HOURS:

DECIMAL ONE DEGREES SOUTH AND LONGITUDE SIXTY ONE DECIMAL NINE
DEGREES EAST)

MOVEMENT SOUTH WEST 10KT.

MAY CAUSE STRONG TO NEAR GALE FORCE EAST SOUTH EASTERLY TO SOUTH
