Pretty cold cloud tops. Hot tower I suppose.

None of the models had this system strong as it is now. I haven't seen 997 mbs on any runs of all the models in the past few days.

The models really failed with this one. Every named storm in the EPac this year has gotten much stronger than expected.

Really a perfect storm of circumstances for intensity error. The first two storms had RI episodes, which make most of the models drop the ball with intensity. And then Carlotta delays its landfall, meaning more time over water and to intensify.

This post was probably an opinion of mine, and in no way is official. Please refer to http://www.hurricanes.gov for tropical systems, or http://www.weather.gov for general meteorology related stuff.

Also, I am not Sparta :lol:

Intensity wise, the GFS did a better job with Aletta and Bud compared to the Euro as it originally had the correct lower pressures.

I recall Alyono called for Calotta's development in the Global Model Discussion thread before any of the models had it. Kudos.

Tropical Storm Carlotta Discussion Number 10
NWS National Hurricane Center Miami FL EP042018
1000 PM CDT Sat Jun 16 2018

Carlotta has surprised us this evening. Radar images from Acapulco,
Mexico, indicate that the storm has strengthened and its structure
has improved significantly. The radar data indicate that Carlotta
has a well-defined, but tiny, inner core and the eye has been
contracting during the past few hours. In addition, the radar
echoes in the eyewall has been getting stronger and more symmetric
around the eye. The initial wind speed is set to 55 kt, in
agreement with a Dvorak classification from TAFB.

Carlotta is very close to the coast of southern Mexico and, in
fact, the northern eyewall is partially onshore. Since the
storm is expected to interact with land and is forecast to move
inland overnight or Sunday morning, it appears unlikely that
Carlotta will strengthen much more. Once inland, fast weakening is
expected and Carlotta should dissipate over the high terrain of
Mexico Sunday night or early Monday.

The storm has moved more to the west than previous thought, likely
due to the influence of a narrow mid-level ridge to its north. The
new forecast is adjusted well to the west of the previous one, and
is in fair agreement with the latest consensus models.

Regardless of whether the center moves inland, the threat of heavy
rainfall and potential of life-threatening flash floods and
mudslides continue over the southern parts of Guerrero and Oaxaca.
The rainfall threat will be enhanced by moist southwesterly flow
over the southern Sierra Madre mountains of Mexico. For details,
please see products issued by your local weather office.

FORECAST POSITIONS AND MAX WINDS

Yeah.
A TS right before the coast that goes another way than forecasted and then strengthens.. I imagine that's not how they like it.

For residents in the immediate path, it must be worrying.

NHC only like to send them out when there's long-term anticipation of a hurricane for near Mexico systems.

Tropical Storm Carlotta Discussion Number 11
NWS National Hurricane Center Miami FL EP042018
400 AM CDT Sun Jun 17 2018

The Acapulco Radar from the Mexican Weather Service has been very
useful in diagnosis and tracking Carlotta tonight. Now that a
portion of the circulation is interacting with land, the radar
presentation has deteriorated compared with several hours ago, and
the cloud pattern observed on satellite has become shapeless. The
cyclone is so tiny than even the ASCAT did not completely identified
the cyclone, but at least it measured a few 35-kt wind vectors.
None of the global models acknowledge the presence of Carlotta in
the analysis. Dvorak T-numbers from al agencies are decreasing, and
on this basis, the initial intensity has been lowered to 45 kt.

Since the interaction with land is expected to continue, the NHC
forecast calls for gradual weakening, and this will occur at a
faster rate if the cyclone moves inland within the next 12 to 24
hours as anticipated.

Yesterday, the forecast was for Carlotta to move northeastward or
northward. The steering currents changed slightly tonight, and
instead, the tiny cyclone is now moving toward the northwest at
about 6 kt or faster. The limited available guidance suggests that
this general motion should continue until dissipation in 36 hours or
so. Since the cyclone is not depicted by the global models, the
forecast is highly uncertain.

Given the northwest track, the Government of Mexico has extended the
Tropical Storm Warning westward along the coast. It must be
emphasized that regardless of whether the center moves inland or
continues moving along the coast, the main threat of heavy rainfall
and potential of life-threatening flash floods and mudslides
continue over the southern parts of Guerrero, Oaxaca and Michoacan.
The rainfall threat will be enhanced by moist southwesterly flow
over the southern Sierra Madre mountains of Mexico. For details,
please see products issued by your local weather office.
