HURRICANE MARIE DISCUSSION NUMBER 15
NWS NATIONAL HURRICANE CENTER MIAMI FL EP132014
800 AM PDT MON AUG 25 2014

The area of the coldest cloud tops surrounding Marie's eye has been
gradually shrinking in size while the eye has started to cool.
However, Marie is still a powerful hurricane, and a blend of CI
numbers from TAFB, SAB, and the objective ADT support maintaining an
intensity of 125 kt for this advisory. A 1207 UTC SSMI/S pass
indicated that Marie still has a concentric eyewall structure, so an
eyewall replacement has not yet occurred. Upper-level outflow has
become a little restricted on the northwest side of the hurricane,
but vertical shear is expected to remain light for much of the
forecast period. Internal dynamics, especially the continued
potential of an eyewall replacement, will likely influence Marie's
intensity during the next 24 hours. After that time, quick
weakening is expected since Marie will be moving over sub-26C
waters. The intensity models are in good agreement in Marie's rate
of weakening during the next few days, and the NHC intensity
forecast is therefore very close to the intensity consensus.

Marie has turned northwestward with an initial motion of 305/11 kt.
Mid-level ridging to the north and northeast of the hurricane is
expected to steer Marie on a northwestward or west-northwestward
heading through day 4. The depiction of a developing mid-level
high along the California/northwest Mexico coast in 3 days has been
a little stronger in recent model runs, and as a result, the track
guidance for Marie has shifted westward. The updated NHC track
forecast is close to a clustering of the GFS, ECMWF, and TVCE beyond
48 hours.

Although Marie is expected to remain well offshore, very large
swells will continue to affect southwestern Mexico through tonight
and much of the Pacific coast of the Baja California peninsula
during the next few days. Southerly swells will also reach the
coast of southern California by Tuesday, producing life-threatening
surf and rip currents, as well as minor coastal flooding.

I was hoping she'd stay stronger longer since she really wasn't bothering people too much.

Its always nice tracking a harmless good looking fish storm with little to no impact. Tough to see her demise, one of the best storms I've followed in the Whem. She's still very large in size, some good surfing.

HURRICANE MARIE DISCUSSION NUMBER 16
NWS NATIONAL HURRICANE CENTER MIAMI FL EP132014
200 PM PDT MON AUG 25 2014

Visible and microwave satellite images indicate that Marie still has
concentric eyewalls, which are surrounded by another larger and
almost closed ring of deep convection. Convective cloud tops have
continued to gradually warm and become more asymmetric during the
past few hours. As a result, Dvorak estimates have dropped, and the
initial intensity is lowered to 115 kt based on a consensus of CI
numbers from TAFB, SAB, and the ADT. A steady decrease in the winds
is forecast to continue in the short term, but the weakening rate
should quicken after Marie moves over sub-26C waters in about 24
hours. As a result, the hurricane is now expected to weaken to a
tropical storm in about 48 hours and become post-tropical by 96
hours. Marie will be over SSTs around 22 deg C in about 72 hours,
so it is possible that it could become post-tropical sooner than
indicated in the official forecast. The weakening trend shown in
the current NHC forecast is a little faster than the previous
one and is in line with the SHIPS and LGEM models through 48
hours. Forecast intensities at the end of the period are based more
on the global models, which should have a better handle on the
system during its post-tropical phase.

The initial motion remains 305/11 kt. Mid-level ridging will
continue to steer Marie northwestward or west-northwestward through
day 4. Once it becomes a remnant low on day 5, Marie is likely to
turn northward and slow down. The track guidance has not changed
on this forecast cycle, and the updated NHC track forecast is
basically an update of the previous one.

Although Marie is expected to remain well offshore, very large
swells will continue to affect southwestern Mexico through tonight
and much of the Pacific coast of the Baja California peninsula
during the next few days. Southerly swells will also reach the
coast of southern California by Tuesday, producing life-threatening
surf and rip currents, as well as minor coastal flooding.

On a trivia note, this the earliest 6th major in EPAC history.

Also was the 6th most intense hurricane in terms of pressure. And thanks to it the EPAC ACE is nearing the WPAC ACE.

Marie is still a beautiful storm. It's returning to a more symmetrical form on the last couple of frames too.

HURRICANE MARIE DISCUSSION NUMBER 17
NWS NATIONAL HURRICANE CENTER MIAMI FL EP132014
800 PM PDT MON AUG 25 2014

Satellite data indicate that Marie has gradually been weakening.
Inner-core deep convection has been slowly warming, with coldest
tops now south of center. Additionally, the eye has become less
defined and has cooled significantly since the last advisory. A
2210 UTC TRMM overpass shows that the hurricane has also been
maintaining a classic concentric eyewall structure - a double
eyewall within 60 n mi of the center, with the inner eyewall
possibly in the process of collapsing. A third, less-defined eyewall
was noted at around 110 n mi radius, separated by a prominent dry
slot. The initial intensity for this advisory is reduced to 100 kt,
based on the latest Dvorak CI numbers from SAB and the UW-CIMSS ADT.

Continued slow weakening is expected in the short term due to
gradually decreasing sea surface temperatures and the possibility of
the current eyewall replacement evolving further. Even though the
vertical shear is forecast to be light, Marie will be crossing the
26 deg C isotherm in 12-18 hours and should reach sub-24 deg C
waters by 48 hours. With the thermodynamic environment worsening so
quickly, near-rapid weakening is likely after about 24 hours until
the cyclone becomes post-tropical by day 3. The cyclone will then
continue to spin down over even cooler waters, but the remnant
circulation could linger beyond the end of the forecast period. The
intensity forecast has been lowered a bit relative to the previous
one due mostly to the greater rate of weakening observed since the
last advisory.

Marie is continuing on a steady northwestward course of 305/11.
Mid-level ridging extending west-southwestward from the eastern
United States in the subtropical eastern Pacific should continue to
steer Marie on a west-northwestward to northwestward path during
the next few days. After losing its deep convection by day 3 or so,
the cyclone's track should bend north-northwestward or even
northward and slow down. There continues to be little change with
regard to the track guidance and little in the way of modifications
was made to the previous track. The new NHC track is in the center
of guidance envelope and close to the multi-model consensus TVCE.

Although Marie is expected to remain well offshore, very large
swells will continue to affect southwestern Mexico through tonight
and much of the Pacific coast of the Baja California peninsula
during the next few days. Southerly swells will also reach the
coast of southern California by Tuesday, producing life-threatening
surf and rip currents, as well as minor coastal flooding.

This storm has been just AMAZING! I guess others on here knew since this would be a very active season that a Cat.5 hurricane seemed about likely.

HURRICANE MARIE DISCUSSION NUMBER 18
NWS NATIONAL HURRICANE CENTER MIAMI FL EP132014
200 AM PDT TUE AUG 26 2014

Microwave images indicate that Marie still has a double eyewall
structure, though the outer eyewall is open on the north side.
The eye of the hurricane remains fairly distinct in satellite
images, but deep convection is not as intense as it was earlier.
The initial intensity is lowered to 90 kt, following the Dvorak
CI-numbers from TAFB and SAB. An ASCAT pass around 0500 UTC
indicated that despite the weakening, the wind field of Marie
remains very large.

The hurricane is moving across a sharp sea surface temperature
gradient, and it is expected to cross the 26 degree C isotherm later
today. These cold waters, combined with a drier and more stable air
mass, should cause Marie to continue weakening at a steady pace. The
NHC intensity forecast is an update of the previous one and shows
Marie becoming a post-tropical cyclone by 72 hours when it is
expected to be over water temperatures below 23 C.

Marie is moving northwestward at 12 kt. A west-northwestward to
northwestward motion at about the same forward speed is forecast
during the next few days while the system remains steered by
mid-level ridging to its northeast. A slow down and turn toward
the north-northwest is expected by the end of the forecast period
when the weak system is steered by the lighter low-level flow. The
NHC track forecast is nudged to the south this cycle, toward the
latest consensus aids.

Very large southerly swells continue to affect much of the Baja
California peninsula, and will soon reach the southern California
coast. These swells are expected to persist for a couple of days,
and could produce life-threatening surf and rip currents, as well as
minor coastal flooding.
