Record quiet tropical cyclone activity in the Pacific

An area of disturbed weather (Invest 94L) in the southern Caribbean a few hundred miles east of the coast of Nicaragua has lost most of its heavy thunderstorm activity, thanks to dry air at middle levels of the atmosphere. Satellite images show just a few clumps of heavy thunderstorms, and no sign of a surface circulation. Water vapor satellite images show a large amount of dry air lies to the north over the northern Caribbean, which is greatly hampering development. NHC is giving 94L just a 20% chance of developing into a tropical depression by Thursday. Wind shear as analyzed by the University of Wisconsin CIMSS group is a moderate 10 - 15 knots, but the dry air surrounding 94L is probably too great too allow development. 94L may bring heavy rains to Honduras on Wednesday, and Belize on Thursday.


Figure 1. Morning satellite image of 94L.

A record quiet typhoon season
While the Atlantic has had its third busiest season on record this year, it has been a record quiet year for tropical cyclones in both the Eastern and Western Pacific. In the Western Pacific, it is currently the quietest typhoon season on record, according to statistics computed by forecaster Paul Stanko at the NWS office on Guam. On average, by this point in the season, there should have been 24.5 named storms, 16 typhoons, and 4 supertyphoons (storms with 150+ mph winds.) So far in 2010, there have been just 14 named storms, 8 typhoons, and 1 supertyphoon. The record lows for the Western Pacific (since 1951) are 18 named storms, 9 typhoons, and 0 supertyphoons. We have a good chance of beating or tying the records for fewest named storms and fewest typhoons, since there are no current threat areas, and none of the models is predicting tropical cyclone development over the next ten days.

A record quiet Eastern Pacific hurricane season
In the Eastern Pacific, it has also been a record-quiet season. On average, the Eastern Pacific has 15 named storms, 8 hurricanes, and 3 intense hurricanes in a season. So far in 2010, there have been 7 named storms, 3 hurricanes, and 2 intense hurricanes. The record quietest season since 1966 was the year 1977, when the Eastern Pacific had 8 named storms, 4 hurricanes, and 0 intense hurricanes. There is a good chance that the 2010 Eastern Pacific hurricane season is over, since we are already into mid-November, and November storms are quite rare in the Eastern Pacific. La Niña is largely responsible to the quiet Eastern Pacific hurricane season, due in part to the cool sea surface temperatures it brought. La Niña also commonly causes less active Western Pacific typhoon seasons, since the warmest waters there shift closer to Asia, reducing the amount of time storms have over water. Still, it is quite remarkable that both of these ocean basins are having record quiet seasons in the same year--there is no historical precedent for such an occurrence.

I'll have an update Wednesday morning.

Cold fronts bring big waves

New Zealand orcas join surfers in search for the perfect wave
By: Pete Thomas
When the latest big swell arrived at Sandy Bay in northern New Zealand, it wasn't the waves making headlines, but the sleek black-and-white surfers who rode them.
Orcas, or killer whales, positioned themselves prominently and made it clear they were the real experts -- and that no mere human on a surfboard was going to deny them whatever waves they wanted.

"They knew what they were doing," Michael Cunningham, a Northern Advocate photographer and witness, told the newspaper. "They looked like they'd done it before."
New Zealand's orcas, unlike those in other parts of the world, are known to occasionally embark on surfing forays, but rarely is someone on the beach ready with a camera.

Less-than-expected cyclogenesis could be due to

1) Higher-than-normal shear;

2) Reduced SSTs;

3) A more stable atmosphere;

4) More dust;

4) Reduced background vorticity or Coriolis gradient where cyclones develop (for example, ITCZ closer to equator or more sinking air.)

Intensity of cyclones that do develop could be inhibited by many of the same factors, plus TCHP.

It has already been mentioned that SSTs were lower in the NE and NW Pacific areas this year. That is a start, but most likely not the whole story. To solve the puzzle, round up the usual list of suspects (above) and analyze them. (and what of the Indian Ocean? Where does it fit into this picture?)

They Don't Expect The Quiet Phase To Be Initiated For Another 5 to 15 Years. Although there is that rare possibility that we see it initiate next year, but dont get your hopes up for i'd say another 3 to 6 years. These kind Active and quiet periods usually last from as little as 20 years to as much as 40 to 50 years. I did a study on the amount of hurricanes a decade received from 1850 to present and could see pretty clearly where the quiet and active periods were. I'll post a picture in just a second...

The ECMWF seasonal forecast calls for weak La Niña conditions to dominate most of the early season, and if you would extrapolate, you would likely see neutral conditions or a weak El Niño for the peak of the season. It should be noted however, that the current temperature anomaly of the central equatorial Pacific (Niño/Niña 3.4 region) is currently above all ensemble members as depicted by the dark dotted blue line. Taking that into consideration, for a more accurate prediction, you should probably expect neutral conditions to take shape a little earlier than currently forecast by the ECMWF.

"Plummet further"? But that wording would imply that temps are plummeting already, wouldn't it? And since 2010 has been one of the warmest years on record, that statement would be a hard sell, now wouldn't it? ;-)

Quite remarkable, indeed. Now, I've been scratching my head hard--I mean, really, really hard--and I haven't been able to think of a single thing that could possibly be having some global-wide effect on the atmosphere, something that would cause such a low number of Pacific storms. There's absolutely no sign--none whatsoever--of anything caused by man or nature that could be changing weather or the climate in such a way. Nothing. Guess I'll just have to keep looking...

;-)


Some, myself included, would say that that is one of the reasons meteorology is so interesting. Though that's hardly a reason to withhold further research into unknown areas, like this one.

The Golden Silk Orb Weaver is commonly referred to (in Florida) as a Banana Spider. They are not the same. The Orb weaver web was actually used in weapon sites in the past due to its natural durability and strength. I actually raised one of these some years ago, and it is now located in a display case at Linger Lodge Restaurant in Florida (and there is more to that story). The Brazilian wandering spider is the very poisonous other one, that actually hide in banana plants.

I am hoping and praying that we will enter the long awaited quiet phase of hurricane activity. Does anyone know if it might start in 2011 and what are the precursors necessary to initiate it. Could this active season "pop" us into a long period of needed tropical tranquility?

GFS wants to put down at least 1-3" of snow over all of VA and parts of the mid-atlantic and the Carolinas as well 252 hours out on the 27th. This would be our first snow.

Summary: east meets west.

Detailed: mid Monday on northern shores has high surf from 290-310 degrees at 14-19 second intervals. It was generated by a captured fetch of severe gales that tracked from near Hokkaido last Tuesday night to the dateline by Friday as it weakened. Wave watch iii model was a notch high at the buoy 51101 and Waimea buoy locations. Shadowing by Niihau and Kauai is affecting Oahu. Mid Monday buoy 51101 measurements suggest high surf into Monday night. This episode is expected to drop below the high mark around sunrise on Tuesday. Moderate surf should prevail through the afternoon, then drop to small levels on Wednesday, all from the same direction 290-310 degrees.

The north Pacific jet stream has had a fairly steady pattern with a trough over the western basin and a ridge to the east. This is making for an extended period of longer period swell of westerly component and shorter period swell from the east.

Another surface low pressure followed a similar track from Hokkaido to the dateline starting late Friday. However, gales to severe gales did not form until about half way across. The jet stream pinched off an eddy early Sunday, as the surface low pressure stalled in forward track and winds reached their maximum at storm force. This system had a narrower, shorter fetch over a similar band of 285-310 degrees, with a smaller episode expected. The jason altimeter measured 20-25 feet seas near the dateline at 12Z Monday that validated well Wave Watch III predictions. This suggests the wave model guidance to be more on track than the Monday episode.

The new swell is due in Wednesday morning, building to within the moderate to near high bracket by the afternoon. The episode should peak Wednesday night, hold at moderate heights on Thursday, and drop to small levels on Friday, still from 290-310 degrees. Tiny to small residuals are possible on Saturday.

Models show a strong high over the Aleutians and a deep low west of vancouver starting Tuesday, that should initiate a small event from 010-030 degrees mid Saturday.

Mid Monday on eastern shores has marginally high breakers under fresh breezes from 80-100 degrees. Similar surf is expected on Tuesday.

Local winds are expected to decline enough to allow land and sea breezes by as soon as Wednesday. See the latest NWS state weather forecast discussion for details.

A strong high pressure system between Hawaii and California has been producing fresh to strong breezes, with near gales furthest east, over the past several days. Models show the speeds decreasing on Tuesday, ending the source. However, with the fetch stretched over 2000 nm, that should keep the conveyor belt moving for 5 days, with a slow downward trend. The direction should also slowly change toward 50 degrees into mid week and holding to the weekend.

Mid Monday on southern shores has a small southern hemisphere episode. It was generated by marginal gales near the subtropics east of New Zealand about a week ago. This episode is expected to linger into Wednesday. No other sources of southern hemisphere swell is due this period.

Zones with easterly exposure should have above average breakers this week, with a downward trend as the windswell backs in direction.

Into the long range, another gale SE of New Zealand could bring in a small episode 11/22-23 from 185-200 degrees.

In the northern hemisphere, models show a marginal gale forming near 170°E, 45°N on Tuesday, nosing toward the dateline over the 305-315 degree band into Wednesday. This could give a moderate episode starting Saturday night. A nearby weak low in some models to the NNW of Hawaii about 700 nm out on Thursday through Friday could add to this episode, potentially giving it a notch more in size on Sunday. Models show another system tracking east from Hokkaido late Thursday, with an occlusion, or pinched-off jet stream eddy, by Saturday on the dateline. That would give an episode in the moderate to high bracket starting next Monday night from 290-310 degrees.

The gulf of Alaska system could give small to moderate breakers from 10-30 degrees 11/21-23, Sunday into Tuesday. Models have been mixed on winds, with climatology giving moderate trades early next week.

Long range forecasts are subject to major revisions.

This collaborative forecast will resume on Wednesday, November 17.

EVENING. A STRONG SOUTHWESTERLY GRADIENT FLOW WILL REMAIN IN PLACE
WITH 700MB WINDS OF 50-60 KTS ON SUNDAY AND MONDAY WITH SEVERAL
STRONG VORT MAXES PROGGED TO ROTATE THROUGH THE BASE OF THE TROUGH.
THIS WILL ENHANCE SNOWFALL PRODUCTION OVER MOUNTAINS AS MOISTURE
REMAINS PREVALENT.

MID-RANGE MODELS ARE IN FAIRLY GOOD AGREEMENT THIS FAR OUT WITH SOME
DISCREPANCIES IN THE DETAILS BUT STILL REMAINS UNSETTLED WITH
OROGRAPHIC MOUNTAIN SNOW CONTINUING THROUGH TUESDAY. THEREFORE

sayonara to 2010 hurricane season.
time to start thinking about thanksgiving and christmas.
I had been watching the banana spiders around my house for the past several months.
Over the past 2 months, they've been dying out. There has been one very large one in the primest position by the automatic light on the stairs. She had her last great meal yesterday and finally, this morning, she's gone.
Guess she knows when to quit!
