BOB: LEHAR - Tropical Cyclone

#1 Postby Grifforzer » Sat Nov 23, 2013 10:41 am

Identified as BOB07-2013

Time of issue: 2015 hours IST Dated: 23-11-2013

Bulletin No.: BOB07/2013/01

Sub: Depression over Andaman Sea:

Pre-cyclone watch for Andaman & Nicobar islands

Latest satellite imagery and observations indicate that a depression has formed over south Andaman Sea and lay centered at 1730 hrs IST of today, the 23rd November 2013 near latitude 8.5N and longitude 96.5E, about 550 km south southeast of Port Blair. The system would intensify into a deep depression during next 12 hrs and further into a cyclonic storm in subsequent 24 hrs. The system would move northwestward and cross Andaman & Nicobar islands between Hurt Bay and Long island, close to Port Blair as a cyclonic storm around night of 24th Nov. 2013. It would then emerge into southeast Bay of Bengal, intensify further and continue to
move northwestwards during subsequent 48 hrs.

Rapidly intensifying with very cold cloud tops right over the center.

55 knots based on dvorak and supported by ship observation...

REMARKS:
241500Z POSITION NEAR 11.1N 92.9E.
TROPICAL CYCLONE 05B (LEHAR), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 695 NM EAST-
SOUTHEAST OF VISAKHAPATNAM, INDIA, HAS TRACKED WEST-NORTHWESTWARD
AT 12 KNOTS OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS. ANIMATED INFRARED SATELLITE
IMAGERY SHOWS THE COLD DENSE OVERCAST (CDO) HAS SIGNIFICANTLY
DEEPENED AS RADIAL OUTFLOW - WITH A STRONG POLEWARD BIAS - HAS
INTENSIFIED. THE INITIAL POSITION IS BASED ON THE ABOVE ANIMATION AND
ON AGENCY FIXES WITH POOR CONFIDENCE DUE TO THE CDO OBSCURING THE LOW
LEVEL CIRCULATION CENTER. THE INITIAL INTENSITY IS BASED ON THE
DVORAK ESTIMATE FROM PGTW AND SUPPORTED BY A NEARBY SHIP OBSERVATION.
UPPER LEVEL ANALYSIS INDICATES THE SYSTEM IS JUST SOUTH OF THE RIDGE
AXIS IN AN AREA OF MODERATE (15-20 KNOT) SOUTHEASTERLY VERTICAL WIND
SHEAR (VWS). HOWEVER, THE VWS IS EASILY OFFSET BY THE ROBUST OUTFLOW.
TC LEHAR IS FORECAST TO CONTINUE ALONG ITS TRACK ALONG THE
SOUTHWESTERN PERIPHERY OF A DEEP SUBTROPICAL RIDGE (STR). DYNAMIC
MODEL GUIDANCE IS IN GOOD AGREEMENT, THEREFORE, THE JTWC FORECAST IS
POSITIONED CLOSE TO THE MULTI-MODEL CONSENSUS. AFTER TAU 12, VERTICAL
WIND SHEAR IS FORECAST TO DECREASE AS THE CYCLONE TRACKS UNDER THE
UPPER-LEVEL STR WITH IMPROVING POLEWARD OUTFLOW. THIS WILL PROMOTE
RAPID INTENSIFICATION, PEAKING AT 100 KNOTS BY TAU 72. OVERALL, THERE
IS HIGH CONFIDENCE IN THE JTWC FORECAST TRACK. NEAR TAU 96, THE STR
IS FORECAST TO WEAKEN OVER INDIA WITH A CORRESPONDING INCREASE IN
SOUTHWESTERLY FLOW, WHICH SHOULD ALLOW THE SYSTEM TO TURN MORE
POLEWARD. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 241200Z IS 15 FEET.
NEXT WARNINGS AT 242100Z, 250300Z, 250900Z AND 251500Z. //

Lehar about 10 km/h away from being upgraded to a Very Severe Cyclonic Storm. Further intensification expected.

REMARKS:
251500Z POSITION NEAR 12.7N 90.2E.
TROPICAL CYCLONE 05B (LEHAR), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 520 NM SOUTHEAST
OF VISAKHAPATNAM, INDIA, HAS TRACKED WEST-NORTHWESTWARD AT 07 KNOTS
OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS. ANIMATED MULTISPECTRAL SATELLITE IMAGERY
SHOWS THE EXPANSIVE CENTRAL DENSE OVERCAST (CDO) FEATURE MAINTAINED
ITS CONVECTIVE DEPTH AS IT CONTINUED TO OBSCURE THE LOW LEVEL
CIRCULATION. THE INITIAL POSITION IS EXTRAPOLATED FROM A 251121Z
SSMIS MICROWAVE COLOR COMPOSITE WITH POOR CONFIDENCE. THE INITIAL
INTENSITY IS BASED ON CONGRUENT DVORAK ESTIMATES FROM PGTW AND KNES.
UPPER LEVEL ANALYSIS INDICATES THE SYSTEM IS JUST SOUTH OF THE RIDGE
AXIS IN AN AREA OF MODERATE (15-20 KNOT) SOUTHEASTERLY VERTICAL WIND
SHEAR (VWS). HOWEVER, THE VWS IS EASILY OFFSET BY THE STRONG RADIAL
OUTFLOW, AS EVIDENCED ON ANIMATED WATER VAPOR SATELLITE IMAGERY. TC
LEHAR IS FORECAST TO TRACK WEST-NORTHWESTWARD ALONG THE SOUTHERN
PERIPHERY OF THE DEEP SUBTROPICAL RIDGE (STR) THROUGH TAU 72. AFTER
TAU 72, TC 05B WILL TURN NORTHWESTWARD AHEAD OF A MID-LATITUDE
SHORTWAVE TROUGH FORECAST TO DEEPEN OVER NORTHERN INDIA. FAVORABLE
UPPER LEVEL CONDITIONS IN ADDITION TO WARM SEA SURFACE TEMPERATURES
OVER THE NEXT 48 HOURS WILL ENSURE GRADUAL INTENSIFICATION, PEAKING
AT 100 KNOTS. THE CYCLONE WILL RAPIDLY WEAKEN DUE TO FRICTION AFTER
IT MAKES LANDFALL SOUTHWEST OF VISAKHAPATNAM AROUND TAU 60. DYNAMIC
MODEL GUIDANCE IS IN GOOD AGREEMENT THROUGH TAU 72, THEREFORE, THE
JTWC FORECAST IS POSITIONED CLOSE TO THE MULTI-MODEL CONSENSUS. AFTER
TAU 72, GUIDANCE DIVERGES SIGNIFICANTLY WITH NAVGEM AND UKMO
INDICATING A SHARP RE-CURVE INTO NORTHEAST INDIA. THIS SCENARIO
APPEARS UNLIKELY AS NAVGEM MAINTAINS A DEEP STR YET DRIVES THE SYSTEM
DIRECTLY INTO THE STR. THE REMAINDER OF THE GUIDANCE (GFDN, ECMWF,
COAMPS-TC, GFS) PRESENTS A MORE PLAUSIBLE SCENARIO AND INDICATES A
GRADUAL RE-CURVE INTO CENTRAL INDIA. AFTER TAU 72, THE
JTWC FORECAST IS POSITIONED WEST OF THE MODEL CONSENSUS TO OFFSET
NAVGEM AND UKMO. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 251200Z IS 20
FEET. NEXT WARNINGS AT 252100Z, 260300Z, 260900Z AND 261500Z. //

VERY unlikely that this ever reaches 100KT. The upper environment simply is not that favorable.

Probably will weaken to a moderate to strong storm by the time it reaches India.

I don't mean to offend the JTWC, but I realised they did something similar with Pewa earlier this year, where they forecasted a Category 3 or 4 out of it, even though there was evidence of 30 knots of shear. Again, this is only my personal opinion, and is NOT an insult to the agency.

There's aggressive and strong vertical wind shear ushered in by the NE monsoon and dry air over India should cause lehar to weaken just prior to landfall.

Computer models were also aggressive in developing Pewa into a Cat3+ typhoon. GFS does that sometimes.

the thing is, the models really dont show much, if any, further intensification that its current state

Is JT relying upon STIPS or something?

Very cold cloud tops and there is a small hole in the middle...

Latest PGTW and KNES up to 4.5...

Maybe the Phailin effect, that's why they expect it to grow really strong? LOL.



I don't know what an active cyclone season in the Indian Ocean looks like, but it's turning out to be an active season to me. Is it going above average in terms of ACE?

Well, the season is quite active. Phailin itself has nearly made the yearly ACE.
