Tropical Storm Walaka Discussion Number 25
NWS Central Pacific Hurricane Center Honolulu HI CP012018
1100 AM HST Fri Oct 05 2018

Walaka, which has been deteriorating steadily all night, is now
coming apart at the seams in satellite imagery. The exposed low
level circulation center (LLCC) is beginning to open up to the
west, with layered clouds and possibly a single warm-topped
cumulonimbus sputtering within the eastern quadrant. The latest
Dvorak current intensity estimates range from 1.5/25 kt from JTWC to
3.0/45 kt from PHFO. SAB estimated 2.0/30 kt while UW-CIMSS ADT was
39 kt. Based on these estimates, and with a nod to continuity, we
will assign an initial intensity of 45 kt for this advisory.
However, this may be generous given the poor satellite presentation
and the Dvorak constraints keeping the PHFO estimate high.

This weakening system is tracking just east of due north, with
initial motion of 030/10 kt. After moving northward over the past
few days along the western fringe of the subtropical ridge, Walaka
is beginning to respond to southwesterly steering ahead of a broad
north Pacific upper trough moving in from the northwest. This will
pick Walaka up and accelerate it off to the northeast through early
Sunday. Walaka is expected to begin extra-tropical transition
Saturday. The official forecast track is very close to that of the
previous advisory, staying within the very tight guidance envelope
centered along HWRF. The track terminates at 48 hours as Walaka
becomes absorbed by a mid-latitude low.

Walaka will move over increasingly cooler water along its truncated
track, while vertical wind shear dramatically ramps up, reaching 34
kt at 36 hours and 44 kt by 48 hours. Global models show Walaka
will be absorbed by a mid-latitude low by 48 hours, with weakening
and extratropical transition occurring simultaneously from 24 hours
through system dissipation at 48 hours. Our forecast follows the
HCCA weakening trend, which is also quite close to the IVCN curve.


FORECAST POSITIONS AND MAX WINDS

Post-tropical now. Goodbye Walaka, you were quite the storm to look at for a short time.

Walaka literally wiped out an island

https://weather.com/news/news/2018-10-2 ... ane-walaka

At a Glance
Hawaii's East Island vanished overnight after being walloped by Hurricane Walaka.
Officials are unsure if the island will ever re-emerge.
The island was a crucial habitat for Hawaiian green sea turtles and monk seals.



Chip Fletcher always knew East Island would eventually be wiped off the map.

Fletcher, a climate scientist with the University of Hawaii, thought it would take decades for rising seas to eventually submerge the island. Instead, it was obliterated overnight by a major hurricane.

One of the most intense Pacific hurricanes on record at its peak, Walaka buzzed just 70 miles west of East Island as a major Category 3 hurricane with sustained winds of 125 mph, walloping Hawaii's Papahanaumokuakea Marine National Monument.
