Hurricane watches for Mexico and Texas as Hermine suddenly develops

Hurricane watches are up for the Texas/Mexico border region as fast developing Tropical Storm Hermine steams towards the coast at 13 mph. Hermine was a tropical depression twelve hours ago, got its name just six hours ago, but already is a threat to intensify into a hurricane by tonight. It's remarkable how fast Gulf of Mexico disturbances can blow up into strong tropical storms, when the right mix of warm waters and low wind shear develops. Indeed, water temperatures are a very warm 30°C, wind shear is a low 5 - 10 knots, and the atmosphere is very moist in the Gulf--ideal conditions for a tropical storm. Hermine promises to be a very wet storm, and latest long range radar out of Brownsville, Texas shows a large area of heavy rain has moved ashore over southern Texas and northern Mexico, with radar estimated rainfall amounts already exceeding two inches in a few areas along the coast. Radar loops show that an eyewall may be beginning to form, and I expect this process will continue through the afternoon and early evening. Satellite imagery shows that Hermine is getting more organized, with vigorous thunderstorms with very cold tops building, low-level spiral bands developing, and improving upper-level outflow occurring on all sides except the west. There is some dry air to the west of Hermine over land that is restricting the storm's development there.

Forecast for Hermine
Hermine doesn't have much time over water before it comes ashore, which is a good thing. Hermine is organizing rapidly, and has a shot at reaching hurricane strength before the center moves ashore late tonight, near midnight. Neither the GFDL or HWRF models develop Hermine into a hurricane, but the HWRF model does predict that tropical storm force winds of 39+ mph will affect the coast as far north as Corpus Christi, Texas. Heavy rain will be the main threat from Hermine, though isolated tornadoes may also cause damage, particularly over South Texas. Hermine is expected to accelerate through Central Texas Tuesday and Wednesday, and the storm's rains will help alleviate moderate to severe drought conditions affecting Central Texas.

Gaston continues to suffer from dry air
The remains of Tropical Storm Gaston are now approaching the northern Lesser Antilles, and residents can expect a few heavy rain showers and wind gusts up to 40 mph beginning late this afternoon and continuing into the night. A pass from the ASCAT satellite this morning at 9:03 am EDT showed a large region of 25 mph winds on the north side of Gaston's circulation, and these winds will move into the northern Lesser Antilles late this afternoon. Latest radar out of Martinique doesn't show much in the way of heavy rain, and satellite imagery confirms that the thunderstorm activity associated with Gaston's remains is quite sparse. Gaston does have developed a well-organized surface circulation, but not enough heavy thunderstorm activity to be considered a tropical depression. A large amount of dry air surrounds Gaston's remains on all sides, as seen on water vapor satellite loops.

Forecast for Gaston
Dry air will continue to be the major impediment to development for Gaston, and the system is unlikely to become a tropical depression today. However, wind shear, which is currently a moderate 10 knots, is forecast by the latest SHIPS model run to fall very low, 0 - 5 knots, tonight through Wednesday. With almost no wind shear affecting it, Gaston will a better chance of keeping the moisture from its heavy thunderstorms near it core on Tuesday. This will insulate the storm from the dry air surrounding it. The atmosphere is also moister in the eastern Caribbean, further increasing the chances of development. I believe it is probable Gaston will become a tropical depression again on Tuesday. NHC is currently giving Gaston a 70% chance of developing into a tropical depression by Wednesday, which is a reasonable forecast. The models don't give much support for Gaston surviving past Wednesday, since many of them have the storm hitting the rugged island of Hispaniola, disrupting the storm.

Heavy rain showers and gusty winds from the storm will affect Puerto Rico Tuesday morning through Wednesday afternoon. This activity will spread to the Dominican Republic Tuesday afternoon through Thursday morning. Assuming dry air and an encounter with Hispaniola's high mountains do not destroy Gaston, heavy rain from the storm should move over Haiti, eastern Cuba, the Turks and Caicos Islands, and Jamaica Wednesday night and Thursday morning. Though none of the global dynamical computer models are showing this, should Gaston survive the dry air and its coming encounter with Hispaniola, the storm will find itself in a very favorable environment for development in the Western Caribbean late in the week, and could intensify into a hurricane by next weekend.

Elsewhere in the tropics
The models are fairly unanimous in predicting development late this week of a tropical wave expected to emerge from the coast of Africa on Tuesday or Wednesday. The next storm will be called Igor, and let's hope it doesn't live up to its fearsome-sounding name!

There will be an update by early this evening.

>1. Introduction
Hurricane forecasters have long been puzzled by the apparent tendency of nascent
tropical cyclones to cease development or weaken as they traverse the eastern Caribbean
Sea. Given the low latitude of this region, most of these tropical disturbances are those
that develop from African easterly waves that are embedded in the deep, tropical
easterlies in the North Atlantic Ocean. Oftentimes, these surface atmospheric waves or
weak tropical cyclones and their associated convection unexpectedly decrease in intensity
in the eastern Caribbean, only to redevelop once they enter the western Caribbean, posing
a dilemma for forecasters.
An example of a tropical disturbance that weakened upon entering the eastern
Caribbean can be seen in Fig. 1a and Fig. 1b. Fig. 1a shows the disturbance at 0015Z on
July 16, 2004 with healthy convection just west of the Lesser Antilles. However, only
three hours later (Fig. 1b), the convection collapsed.
For years, the National Hurricane Center has colloquially referred to this eastern
Caribbean region as a hurricane graveyard. A good example of this was in the forecast
discussion for Tropical Depression Joyce in 2000, “…The outflow has improved and I
would dare to say that it is favorable for strengthening. However…Tropical Depression
Joyce is about to move into the area which the old timers call the hurricane graveyard.
Historically…with a few exceptions…tropical cyclones do not develop in this
area…Joyce is kept at 30 knots through 48 hours. Thereafter…some strengthening is
indicated when the depression reaches the western Caribbean…if it survives…” (Avila
2000).

---It should be interesting to see how Gaston interacts with the "hurricane graveyard" at peak season.

Sorry to hear that about your house. She caused a pretty widespread swath of damage. I have been wondering with respect to Gaston why no one's expecting him to intensify in the Caribbean. I guess the DR answered because of the mountainous terrain he'll be crossing over. But even that isn't a given at this point. So he definitely has my attention.

>The study has determined that a local, climatological minimum of tropical
cyclogenesis exists over the eastern Caribbean Sea. This area, known colloquially by
forecasters as the “hurricane graveyard,” is located within the belt of tropical easterlies
during most of the Atlantic hurricane season, which lasts from June through November.
Tropical easterly waves emerging from the African continent usually follow a path
through the Lesser Antilles and into the eastern Caribbean. GOES infrared satellite
imagery shows that easterly waves frequently exhibit warming cloud tops and decreasing
convection in an area bounded by the islands to the north and east, Venezuela to the
south, and roughly 75 degrees longitude to the west. QuikSCAT derived surface winds
during clear-sky conditions frequently show the presence of accelerating easterlies in the
central Caribbean as part of the Caribbean Low-Level Jet (CLLJ). Analysis of the NCEP
global reanalysis wind fields suggests the presence of an area of persistent low-level mass
divergence in the eastern Caribbean. This implies a subsident regime that would weaken
convection. Climatologically, this phenomenon reaches peak intensity in July, then shifts
towards the east and weakens in the latter half of the Atlantic hurricane season. This is
reflected by the local minimum of tropical cyclogenesis points in the National Hurricane
Center’s best track data in the early part of the season. El Niño directly affects the
strength of the CLLJ, and hence, is related to the intensity of the low-level divergence in
the eastern Caribbean. The local minimum of tropical cyclogenesis in this region has
important implications to operational forecasting, since the vast majority of tropical
cyclones in the Caribbean eventually affect surrounding landmasses.

---It seems like Gaston would be less affected by this climate pattern now that it is later in the season.

This reminded me of the comment from the hurricane hunter flying into Rita, "We were calling this tropical trash a couple of days ago." Lol. Never know this time of year.
