91C.Invest - Very far to the north (42.5 N, 146.5 W)

Up on NRL. It's really far to the north; 42.5 N and 146.5 W

Here's another, broader view of it.

For its location, it looks very nice. CPAC's TWO should be interesting.

P.K. do you think there's any chance of it being classified as a tropical or subtropical storm?

Well it's a long way north and a quick glance at the global models on the Cyclone Phase Analysis page shows they all have it moving NE. Currently the SSTs are in the region of 17C.

SSTs are around 15º celcius and drop eastward. This is a nice example of baroclinic forcing for an intensifying surface low that developed under a cold core, mid-latitudinal system. A Nor'easter for the Eestern Pacific, if you will... Nothing really tropical here. It is a very pretty storm though!

Thanks for the answers. I'm curious, then, how come they put an invest for such a storm?

I have to say that that looks like a TC and if it were in the Atlantic, it would have been named by now

Also, that 26 degree SST myth is just that. That is usually the temperature at which surface fluxes between the ocean and atmosphere begin and the temperature that produces enough of a lapse rate to allow for deep convection.But it is not always true

I pointed this out in another thread, but I didn't think it would become this impressive. :eek:

Wow, it keeps looking better and better. The eye, or what seems like an eye, is looking pretty good now.

I agree with derek ortt, it does not need to be 26c water to form a cyclone, with the right forcing, and stuff. I wonder when the nhc will upgrade?

Well, it's CPAC territory, so it's up to them. Unlike the NHC, the CPAC has never started advisories for a storm north of 30º N, although they did re-initiate advisories on Fausto in 2002 while at a decent latitude.

Weak :( However, hasn't that happened in the past? Don't they occassionally remove an invest to replace it with a noname?

Yes, GFS, CMC, NOGAPS, and UKMET have this as a warm-core system.

EDIT: Now gone from FNMOC.
