Losing banding. Also I see no outer eyewall. The dry air just weakened the eye but no secondary eyewall formed.

----------------------------------------------
LOCATION...15.0N 124.5W
ABOUT 1095 MI...1765 KM WSW OF THE SOUTHERN TIP OF BAJA CALIFORNIA
MAXIMUM SUSTAINED WINDS...85 MPH...140 KM/H
PRESENT MOVEMENT...W OR 270 DEGREES AT 13 MPH...20 KM/H
MINIMUM CENTRAL PRESSURE...983 MB...29.03 INCHES


WATCHES AND WARNINGS
--------------------
There are no coastal watches or warnings in effect.


DISCUSSION AND 48-HOUR OUTLOOK
------------------------------
At 200 AM PDT (0900 UTC), the center of Hurricane Celia was located
near latitude 15.0 North, longitude 124.5 West. Celia is moving
toward the west near 13 mph (20 km/h), and this motion is expected
to continue today. A turn toward the west-northwest with a slight
decrease in forward speed is forecast tonight.

Maximum sustained winds have increased to near 85 mph (140 km/h)
with higher gusts. Some additional strengthening is expected during
the next day or so. Slow weakening is forecast to begin on Tuesday.

Hurricane-force winds extend outward up to 30 miles (45 km) from the
center and tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 140 miles
(220 km).

The estimated minimum central pressure is 983 mb (29.03 inches).


HAZARDS AFFECTING LAND
----------------------
None.


NEXT ADVISORY
-------------
Next complete advisory at 800 AM PDT.

HURRICANE CELIA DISCUSSION NUMBER 19
NWS NATIONAL HURRICANE CENTER MIAMI FL EP042016
200 AM PDT MON JUL 11 2016

Celia still has a somewhat ragged satellite appearance tonight. The
deepest convection is located in a broken ring around a ragged
intermittent eye and in a band well east of the center. TAFB and
SAB Dvorak estimates at 06Z were T4.5/77 kt, and the initial
intensity is set to 75 kt for this advisory. Additional slow
strengthening seems likely for the next day or so while Celia moves
over SSTs above 26C. After that time the waters will cool, which
should result in a slow weakening through the remainder of the
forecast period since the shear will remain low. The new NHC
forecast is similar to the previous one, showing a peak of 90 kt in
about 24 h, and this is above all of the intensity guidance. During
the weakening phase, the NHC forecast lies between the stronger
SHIPS model and the weaker LGEM.

The hurricane is moving westward at 11 kt. A turn toward the
west-northwest is forecast in about 24 hours as Celia reaches the
southwestern edge of a mid-level ridge. By the end of the period,
the ridge should rebuild to the north, resulting in the track
bending back toward the west. Overall, the track model guidance is
in good agreement on this scenario. For this cycle, the NHC
forecast has been adjusted a bit to the north, but lies south of the
latest TVCN multi-model consensus aid.

An ASCAT-B pass from around 0520Z was used to adjust the initial
34-kt and 50-kt wind radii.

I think the actual track will either be the GFS or Euro's. There is no in between. This will be another opportunity to know which of the two is the king. :lol:

HURRICANE CELIA DISCUSSION NUMBER 20
NWS NATIONAL HURRICANE CENTER MIAMI FL EP042016
800 AM PDT MON JUL 11 2016

After developing what had been a decent looking eye with a diameter
of about 20 nmi, dry air has once again penetrated into the
inner-core region and has eroded most of the eyewall convection.
Satellite current intensity estimates range from T4.5/77 kt from
TAFB and SAB to as high as T5.4/100 kt from UW-CIMSS ADT. Given the
ragged-appearing inner-core region in the last few images, the
intensity is only raised to 80 kt for this advisory, which is
consistent with a 1200 UTC UW-CIMSS SATCON consensus of 82 kt.

The initial motion estimate is 275/11 kt. A westward motion is
expected to continue today, followed by a turn toward the
west-northwest late tonight as Celia begins to move into a
developing weakness in the subtropical ridge. This weakness will be
created by a narrow mid-level trough along 130W longitude that is
digging southward as noted in water vapor imagery. The shortwave
trough is forecast to weaken by 72 h and lift out to the north or
northeast, which will allow the ridge to rebuild and force Celia
back on a more westward track on days 3-5. Similar to the previous
advisory, the NHC track model guidance remains in excellent
agreement on this scenario and is tightly packed around the previous
forecast track. As a result, the new forecast track is essentially
just an extension of the previous advisory track, and lies just
south of the TVCN consensus model.

Celia likely only has another 12 hours or so to strengthen while the
hurricane remains over SSTs above 26.5 deg C. The overall mid-level
environment is fairly moist and the vertical shear is expected to
remain light, which should favor some additional intensification. By
36 hours, however, Celia will be moving over sub-26C SSTs, which
should induce slow but steady weakening through the remainder of the
forecast period. However, since the vertical wind shear is expected
to remain low, Celia is forecast to still be a tropical cyclone when
it crosses 140W longitude and moves into the Central Pacific basin
in about 96 hours. The new intensity forecast is similar to the
previous advisory, and lies above all of the intensity guidance
through 36 h, and then lies near or below the guidance after that
during the weakening phase.

FORECAST POSITIONS AND MAX WINDS

INIT 11/1500Z 15.1N 125.5W 80 KT 90 MPH
12H 12/0000Z 15.5N 126.9W 90 KT 105 MPH
24H 12/1200Z 16.1N 128.7W 85 KT 100 MPH
36H 13/0000Z 17.1N 130.4W 80 KT 90 MPH
48H 13/1200Z 18.2N 132.2W 70 KT 80 MPH
72H 14/1200Z 20.1N 136.2W 60 KT 70 MPH
96H 15/1200Z 21.1N 140.7W 50 KT 60 MPH
120H 16/1200Z 21.6N 145.8W 40 KT 45 MPH
