Hurricane Kenneth Forecast Discussion Number 15

21 Aug 22:40 | Weather

Issued at 800 PM PDT Mon Aug 21 2017 000 WTPZ43 KNHC 220240 TCDEP3 Hurricane Kenneth Discussion Number 15 NWS National Hurricane Center Miami FL EP132017 800 PM PDT Mon Aug 21 2017 Kenneth's previously distinct eye is clouding over as its eye temperature cools, while the surrounding eyewall convection warms and weakens. Correspondingly, the Dvorak classifications from TAFB, SAB, and ADT have dropped and a blend of them suggests an intensity of 95 kt at 00Z. Continued deterioration of the convective structure is justification for maximum winds of 90 kt at advisory time. While no recent size observations have been available, earlier AMSU estimates along with the limited extent of the cold cloud canopy suggest that Kenneth is a small tropical cyclone with tropical-storm-force winds extending out about 80 nm from the center on average. Kenneth should continue to weaken - perhaps rapidly - under the influence of cool to cold SSTs, dry and less unstable air, and increasinread more »

20 Aug 22:52 | Weather

Issued at 800 PM PDT Sun Aug 20 2017 000 WTPZ43 KNHC 210252 TCDEP3 Hurricane Kenneth Discussion Number 11 NWS National Hurricane Center Miami FL EP132017 800 PM PDT Sun Aug 20 2017 Kenneth has rapidly intensified into a major hurricane this evening, as the eye has dramatically warmed and the surrounding cloud tops of the eyewall have cooled. At 00Z, a blend of TAFB, SAB, and ADT Dvorak classifications averaged maximum winds of 95 kt. However, the continued convective development in the last three hours suggests that the advisory intensity be boosted to 100 kt, and even that may be conservative. While the hurricane has shown an impressive evolution in the last day, this should not continue much longer. Kenneth will reach the 26C SST isotherm with drier, less unstable air late Monday, and it is anticipated that Kenneth will peak by then. In about three days, the vertical shear will go up appreciably due to Kenneth approaching an upper-level trough. The combination oread more »

Tropical Storm Kenneth Forecast Discussion Number 7

19 Aug 22:32 | Weather

Issued at 800 PM PDT Sat Aug 19 2017 000 WTPZ43 KNHC 200232 TCDEP3 Tropical Storm Kenneth Discussion Number 7 NWS National Hurricane Center Miami FL EP132017 800 PM PDT Sat Aug 19 2017 Kenneth is very near hurricane strength. It's rather apparent that the northeasterly shear has relaxed, which, in turn, has resulted in much less structural vertical tilt and a developing inner core with -80C cloud tops. The upper-level outflow over the northern portion of Kenneth has recently become quite diffluent as well. Based on the recent improving cloud pattern trend and a blend of the subjective and objective T-numbers, the initial intensity is bumped up to 60 kt. Kenneth should continue to strengthen during the next 36 to 48 hours. Beyond that time period, decreasing oceanic temperatures and a trajectory into a more stable environment should result in a gradual weakening trend. The cyclone is forecast to gradually spin down over cooler water of less than 23C, and become a read more »

Impressive outer curved banding has developed in the eastern and northern portions of the cyclone, and the last few visible images are showing early signs of a small central dense overcast, or inner core formation. Based on the overall improvement of the cloud pattern and Dvorak satellite intensity estimates of 35 kt from SAB and TAFB, the depression is upgraded to Tropical Storm Kenneth. The northeasterly shear is diminishing, the oceanic temperatures are warm, and the low to mid levels of the atmosphere are moist, all bolstering further strengthening through the 48-hour period.
