Potential Tropical Cyclone Nine Discussion Number   2

NWS National Hurricane Center Miami FL       AL092020

500 PM AST Tue Jul 28 2020

 

The overall structure of the disturbance has not changed much since

this morning.  New clusters of convection have developed over the

northern portion of the elongated circulation and the Air Force

Reserve reconnaissance aircraft has been unable to find a

well-defined center.  The aircraft measured some SFMR winds of

30-35 kt well to the northwest of the trough axis, and these data

along with the earlier ASCAT form the basis of the 35 kt initial

intensity. The latest dynamical model guidance still suggests that

the system will consolidate over the next 12-18 hours and the

disturbance is expected to become a tropical storm before it

reaches the Leeward Islands on Wednesday.

 

The particulars of the track forecast remain uncertain since

the system lacks a well-defined center.  The initial motion estimate

is a highly uncertain 285/20 kt. The overall track forecast reasoning

remains the same, with the disturbance expected to move

west-northwestward over the next several days to the south of a

subtropical ridge that extends westward over the western Atlantic.

The 12Z track guidance is in agreement on the overall scenario, but

some differences are noted due primarily to the system's strength

and vertical depth.  Models such as the UKMET and HWRF, which

depict a stronger cyclone, are along the northern side of the

guidance envelope, while the weaker solutions remain more

equatorward.  The updated NHC track forecast is similar to the

previous advisory and lies a little south of the various consensus

aids.  Regardless of the exact track, the system is expected to

bring locally heavy rainfall to much of the Lesser Antilles, and

tropical-storm-force winds to portions of the Leeward Islands, the

Virgin Islands, and Puerto Rico within the next 24-36 hours.

 

The global model guidance suggests that the system will consolidate

overnight and should acquire a better defined center.  As this

occurs, the disturbance is likely to gradually strengthen within

the low vertical wind shear environment that it is situated in.

Between 36 and 72 hours, the strength of the system will largely be

dependent on the amount of land it encounters.  If the system moves

over the Greater Antilles it is likely to be weaker than indicated

in the official forecast, but a path north or south of Hispaniola

could result in a stronger system.  Later in the period, some

southwesterly shear could also temper further strengthening.  The

GFS and ECMWF models generally weaken the system in the longer

range due to these negative factors.  The NHC intensity forecast is

unchanged from the previous advisory, but an usually high degree of

uncertainty regarding the future track and intensity of the system

remains.  Interests in Hispaniola, the Bahamas, Cuba, and Florida

should continue to monitor forecasts as changes to both track and

intensity are likely.

 

Key Messages:

 

1. Potential Tropical Cyclone Nine will produce heavy rains and

potentially life-threatening flash flooding and mudslides across

the northern Leeward Islands, the Virgin Islands, Puerto Rico, and

the Dominican Republic.

 

2. Tropical storm conditions are likely across portions of the

Leeward Islands, the Virgin Islands, Puerto Rico, and portions of

the Dominican Republic beginning Wednesday and spreading westward

through Thursday.  Tropical Storm Warnings are in effect for these

areas. Do not focus on the details of the track forecast, as

rainfall and wind hazards will extend far from the center of the

system.

 

3. The details of the long-range track and intensity forecasts are

more uncertain than usual since the system does not have a

well-defined center and it could move over portions of the Greater

Antilles later this week. However, this system could bring some

rainfall and wind impacts to portions of Hispaniola, Cuba, the

Bahamas, and Florida by the end of the week. Interests there should

monitor its progress and updates to the forecast over the next few

days.
