50%

SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS ASSOCIATED WITH AN AREA OF LOW PRESSURE
LOCATED ABOUT 800 MILES SOUTHWEST OF MANZANILLO MEXICO ARE SHOWING
SOME SIGNS OF ORGANIZATION. CONDITIONS APPEAR FAVORABLE FOR
ADDITIONAL DEVELOPMENT AND THIS LOW COULD BECOME A TROPICAL
DEPRESSION DURING THE NEXT DAY OR TWO AS IT MOVES WESTWARD AT ABOUT
10 MPH. THIS SYSTEM HAS A MEDIUM CHANCE...50 PERCENT...OF BECOMING
A TROPICAL CYCLONE DURING THE NEXT 48 HOURS.

70%


SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS ARE GRADUALLY BECOMING BETTER ORGANIZED
IN ASSOCIATION WITH AN AREA OF LOW PRESSURE LOCATED ABOUT 825 MILES
SOUTHWEST OF MANZANILLO MEXICO. CONDITIONS APPEAR FAVORABLE FOR
ADDITIONAL DEVELOPMENT...AND THIS LOW IS LIKELY TO BECOME A TROPICAL
DEPRESSION DURING THE NEXT DAY OR TWO AS IT MOVES WEST-NORTHWESTWARD
AT ABOUT 10 MPH. THIS SYSTEM HAS A HIGH CHANCE...70 PERCENT...OF
BECOMING A TROPICAL CYCLONE DURING THE NEXT 48 HOURS.

That MJO burst is pretty strong and well on its way to the Atlantic! Just see how busy the EPAC has gotten.

97E is the only INVEST number yet to produce at least a numbered cyclone this year. If this forms, it will be our first TD of the year from a 97E.

Two side by side (almost) in the EPAC. Are there any models available to share yet?

TROPICAL DEPRESSION ELEVEN-E DISCUSSION NUMBER 1
NWS NATIONAL HURRICANE CENTER MIAMI FL EP112011
200 AM PDT THU OCT 06 2011

SATELLITE IMAGES INDICATE THAT THE SHOWER ACTIVITY ASSOCIATED WITH
THE LOW PRESSURE AREA SOUTH-SOUTHWEST OF BAJA CALIFORNIA HAS
ACQUIRED ENOUGH ORGANIZATION TO BE CLASSIFIED AS A TROPICAL
DEPRESSION. THE CONVECTION HAS INCREASED MARKEDLY IN A CYCLONICALLY
CURVED BAND TO THE WEST OF THE CENTER AND THE OUTFLOW IS PRIMARILY
IN THE WESTERN SEMICIRCLE. T-NUMBERS FROM BOTH TAFB AND SAB ARE 2.0
ON THE DVORAK SCALE...YIELDING AN INITIAL INTENSITY OF 30 KNOTS.
THE DEPRESSION IS EMBEDDED WITHIN A MARGINALLY FAVORABLE
UPPER-LEVEL ENVIRONMENT AND GUIDANCE SUGGEST SLOW STRENGTHENING.
SINCE THE SHEAR IS FORECAST TO INCREASE...NO CHANGE IN STRENGTH IS
EXPECTED BY THE END OF THE FORECAST PERIOD.

THE DEPRESSION IS EMBEDDED WITHIN LIGHT STEERING CURRENTS AND IS
MOVING TOWARD THE WEST-NORTHWEST OR 295 DEGREES AT 5 KNOTS. MOST OF
THE GLOBAL MODELS SUGGEST THAT A LARGE MID-LEVEL TROUGH WILL
DEVELOP OVER THE WESTERN UNITED STATES AND THE CYCLONE WILL BECOME
EMBEDDED WITHIN THE WESTERLY FLOW ASSOCIATED WITH THE BASE OF THE
TROUGH. THEREFORE...A VERY SLOW NORTHWARD TURN IS INDICATED IN THE
NEXT DAY OR TWO...FOLLOWED BY A GRADUAL TURN TO THE NORTHEAST. THIS
FORECAST IS CLOSE TO THE ECMWF. HOWEVER...THE GFS COMBINES THIS
CYCLONE WITH TROPICAL DEPRESSION TEN-E AND MOVES THE ENTIRE COMPLEX
SYSTEM TOWARD THE NORTHEAST. THIS IS ALSO A POSSIBILITY.

TROPICAL STORM IRWIN DISCUSSION NUMBER 2
NWS NATIONAL HURRICANE CENTER MIAMI FL EP112011
800 AM PDT THU OCT 06 2011

THE CLOUD PATTERN OF THE TROPICAL CYCLONE HAS GRADUALLY BECOME
BETTER ORGANIZED THIS MORNING...WITH A CURVED CONVECTIVE BAND
WRAPPING ABOUT HALFWAY AROUND THE ESTIMATED CENTER. DVORAK
T-NUMBERS FROM TAFB AND SAB ARE NOW 2.5...CORRESPONDING TO AN
INTENSITY OF 35 KT...AND THE SYSTEM IS BEING NAMED AT THIS TIME.
UPPER-LEVEL OUTFLOW IS WELL DEFINED OVER THE WESTERN SEMICIRCLE AND
RESTRICTED TO THE EAST. SOUTHEASTERLY TO SOUTHERLY SHEAR IS
FORECAST TO INCREASE OVER IRWIN OVER THE NEXT FEW DAYS...PARTIALLY
DUE TO THE INFLUENCE OF ANOTHER TROPICAL CYCLONE NOT FAR TO THE
EAST. SLOW STRENGTHENING IS PREDICTED...FOLLOWING THE
STATISTICAL-DYNAMICAL GUIDANCE.

LATEST CENTER FIXES REQUIRE A SLIGHT RELOCATION TO THE EAST OF THE
PREVIOUS TRACK. THE STORM HAS BEEN MOVING SLOWLY
WEST-NORTHWESTWARD...ON THE SOUTHWEST SIDE OF A WEAK MID-LEVEL
RIDGE. OVER THE NEXT COUPLE OF DAYS A LARGE MID-TROPOSPHERIC
TROUGH IS FORECAST TO AMPLIFY TO THE NORTH OF IRWIN. THIS CHANGE
IN THE STEERING PATTERN SHOULD CAUSE THE TROPICAL CYCLONE TO TURN
NORTHWARD AND EVENTUALLY EAST-NORTHEASTWARD DURING THE FORECAST
PERIOD. SINCE ANOTHER TROPICAL CYCLONE WILL BE SITUATED 7 TO 10
DEGREES TO THE EAST...SOME INTERACTION BETWEEN THESE TWO SYSTEMS IS
PROBABLE. AT THIS TIME THE MOST LIKELY SCENARIO IS FOR IRWIN TO
TRAIL THE NEIGHBORING CYCLONE AS THE LATTER SYSTEM MOVES TOWARD THE
MEXICAN COAST. IT IS CERTAINLY POSSIBLE HOWEVER THAT THE TWO
CYCLONES WILL MOVE MORE IN TANDEM TOWARD THE COAST...AS SUGGESTED
BY RECENT GFS MODEL RUNS.

TROPICAL STORM IRWIN DISCUSSION NUMBER 3
NWS NATIONAL HURRICANE CENTER MIAMI FL EP112011
200 PM PDT THU OCT 06 2011

WELL...SO MUCH FOR THE SLOW STRENGTHENING THAT WAS FORECAST IN THE
PREVIOUS ADVISORY. IRWIN HAS BECOME CONSIDERABLY BETTER ORGANIZED
OVER THE PAST SEVERAL HOURS...WITH WELL-DEFINED CURVED BAND
FEATURES WRAPPING AROUND THE CENTER. DVORAK INTENSITY ESTIMATES
RANGE FROM 45 TO 55 KT FROM SAB AND TAFB...RESPECTIVELY...AND THE
INITIAL WIND SPEED IS SET TO 50 KT. UPPER-LEVEL OUTFLOW HAS BECOME
BETTER-DEFINED AND IS EXPANDING. IT NOW APPEARS THAT...IN
COMPARISON TO THE TROPICAL CYCLONE LOCATED ABOUT 10 DEGREES TO THE
EAST...IRWIN IS THE DOMINANT SYSTEM. THIS IMPLIES THAT THE
CIRCULATION OF THE EASTERN CYCLONE WILL NOT HAVE MUCH OF AN ADVERSE
IMPACT...AND THE OFFICIAL FORECAST NOW SHOWS IRWIN STRENGTHENING
INTO A HURRICANE. THIS IS SIMILAR TO THE STATISTICAL-DYNAMICAL
GUIDANCE AND TO THE INTENSITY MODEL CONSENSUS.

THE STORM HAS MOVED A LITTLE FASTER TOWARD THE WEST-NORTHWEST...OR
295/7...OVER THE PAST FEW HOURS. A MID-LEVEL RIDGE TO THE
NORTHEAST OF IRWIN IS FORECAST TO RETREAT AS A DEEP-LAYER TROUGH
DEVELOPS TO THE NORTH OF THE TROPICAL CYCLONE. IN RESPONSE TO THIS
EVOLUTION OF THE STEERING PATTERN...IRWIN IS EXPECTED TO TURN
TOWARD THE RIGHT AND DECELERATE OVER THE NEXT COUPLE OF DAYS.
LATER IN THE FORECAST PERIOD...IRWIN SHOULD MOVE EAST-NORTHEASTWARD
TOWARD MEXICO IN THE FLOW TO THE SOUTH OF THE TROUGH. THE LATEST
OFFICIAL FORECAST IS A LITTLE FASTER THAN THE PREVIOUS ONE. THIS
IS BETWEEN THE SIGNIFICANTLY FASTER GFS...GFDL...AND HWRF GUIDANCE
AND THE SLOWER ECMWF FORECAST.

FORECAST POSITIONS AND MAX WINDS

INIT 06/2100Z 12.8N 117.9W 50 KT 60 MPH
12H 07/0600Z 12.9N 118.4W 55 KT 65 MPH

So now the craziness shifts to the Eastern Pacific. If Irwin and Jova both become hurricanes, that will put the season at 10/9/4. There has only been one season since 1998 with 9 or more hurricanes: 2006, and that was an El Nino.

Is there a possibility that they may combine into one storm?
