HURRICANE IGNACIO DISCUSSION NUMBER 21
NWS CENTRAL PACIFIC HURRICANE CENTER HONOLULU HI EP122015
500 PM HST SAT AUG 29 2015

IGNACIO CONTINUES TO HAVE A WELL DEFINED...20 NM WIDE EYE SURROUNDED
BY A RING OF COLD CONVECTIVE CLOUDS. DVORAK INTENSITY ESTIMATES
WERE A UNANIMOUS 6.0 FROM THE SATELLITE AGENCIES...AND THE UW-CIMSS
ADT INTENSITY ESTIMATE WAS 6.4. BASED ON A BLEND OF THESE DATA...
WILL MAINTAIN THE 120 KT /CATEGORY 4 ON THE SAFFIR-SIMPSON SCALE/
INTENSITY. THE NEXT RECONNAISSANCE MISSION IS SCHEDULED TO
INVESTIGATE IGNACIO AT 0600 UTC. NOTE THAT HURRICANES IGNACIO AND
KILO ARE BOTH CATEGORY 4 AS OF THIS ADVISORY CYCLE...A VERY RARE
OCCURRENCE INDEED FOR THE CENTRAL PACIFIC BASIN.

THE HURRICANE IS MOVING STEADILY TOWARD THE NORTHWEST...315 DEGREES
AT 8 KT...THROUGH A WEAKNESS IN THE MID-LEVEL RIDGE EAST OF HAWAII
AND TOWARD A WEAK TROUGH LOCATED TO THE NORTH OF THE NORTHWESTERN
HAWAIIAN ISLANDS. THE TRACK GUIDANCE IS IN GOOD AGREEMENT THAT THIS
GENERAL MOTION WILL CONTINUE FOR THE NEXT FEW DAYS. OUR FORECAST
TRACK IS VERY CLOSE TO THE PREVIOUS FORECAST AS WELL AS THE
CONSENSUS GUIDANCE FOR THE NEXT 24 HOURS. BEYOND 24 HOURS OUR TRACK
BENDS MORE TO THE LEFT WITH TIME IN ANTICIPATION THAT IGNACIO WILL
WEAKEN A BIT FASTER THAN THE DYNAMICAL MODELS INDICATE.

THE UW-CIMSS WIND SHEAR ANALYSIS AND CONVENTIONAL SATELLITE IMAGERY
SHOWS THAT SOUTHWESTERLY WIND SHEAR IS BEGINNING TO AFFECT IGNACIO.
HIGH CLOUDS FROM THE HURRICANE ARE STARTING TO GET PULLED TO THE
NORTHEAST. ACCORDING TO THE ANALYSIS...THE SHEAR IS NEAR 10 KT...
BUT INCREASES TO 15-20 KT TO THE NORTHWEST OF THE CYCLONE...AND
WILL INCREASE FURTHER AND BECOME QUITE STRONG AS IGNACIO APPROACHES
HAWAII. THIS WILL LEAD TO A STEADY WEAKENING TREND...DESPITE SEA
SURFACE TEMPERATURES OF 27-28C ALONG MOST OF THE FORECAST TRACK.
THE WEAKENING WILL BE GRADUAL OVER THE NEXT 24 HOURS...THEN MORE
RAPID ONCE THE SHEAR BEGINS TO IMPACT THE CORE OF THE HURRICANE.
OUR WEAKENING TREND IS NOT AS FAST AS THE SHIPS...BUT FASTER THAN
THE DYNAMIC MODELS AND IN GOOD AGREEMENT WITH THE INTENSITY
CONSENSUS.

THE RELATIVELY CLOSE PROXIMITY TO THE EXPECTED OUTER EXTENT OF THE
34 KNOT WIND RADII IN THE SOUTHWEST QUADRANT REQUIRES MAINTAINING
THE TROPICAL STORM WATCH FOR THE BIG ISLAND...AND THE ISSUANCE OF
A TROPICAL STORM WATCH FOR MAUI COUNTY AT THIS TIME.


FORECAST POSITIONS AND MAX WINDS

INIT 30/0300Z 17.0N 147.6W 120 KT 140 MPH
12H 30/1200Z 17.9N 148.7W 115 KT 135 MPH

36H 31/1200Z 20.0N 151.5W 95 KT 110 MPH
48H 01/0000Z 21.0N 153.0W 80 KT 90 MPH
72H 02/0000Z 23.0N 156.0W 70 KT 80 MPH
96H 03/0000Z 25.0N 159.0W 60 KT 70 MPH

Ditto, and to the usual resident posters as well. The Pacific threads are more technical compared to the Atlantic threads, good for us weather geeks. But there are people who lurk as well and should be encouraged to join in.

It's nice nowadays having some traffic on these threads. Years ago there'd be no one posting in these threads.

We'd need Recon. I think Linda/Rick were pretty close if not there and perhaps Marie (due to its large size).

MAYBE Jimena if it enters the CPAC and recon decides to stick around.

I know I say this a lot but Hawaii is dodging a massive bullet. This is off the charts lucky.

In addition to the waning convection, the last two eye temp measurements from GOES-15 came in under 15*C. Even without recon, it's probably safe to say that Ignacio is beginning to come slowly down from peak intensity.
