Hurricane Adrian – Day 3

Hurricane AdrianPosition: 14.6N 105.8W [10PM CDT 0300 UTC].
Movement: West-Northwest [285°] near 9 mph [15 kph].
Maximum sustained winds: 140 mph [220 kph].
Wind Gusts: 165 mph [270 kph].
Tropical Storm Wind Radius: 90 miles [150 km].
Hurricane Wind Radius: 30 miles [ 45 km].
Minimum central pressure: 946 mb ↓.

Currently about 320 miles [515 km] South-Southwest of Manzanillo, Mexico.

Adrian is now a Category 4 storm, continuing its rapid intensification. It is expected to lose energy beginning tomorrow. It is certainly to be hoped that no one runs into this storm on the Pacific.

The turn to the North keeps getting pushed further West, so the value of Adrian to pull rain into the Southwestern states is much reduced. It will begin to pass over cooler water as it heads West and lose strength.

Here’s the link for NOAA’s latest satellite images.

Bryan, I know you’ll keep an eye on Cuba, where there’s a new low (and I don’t mean in standards of CIA behavior at Guantanamo).

When Invest 94 failed to make the “Big Time”, it fractured into three low pressure systems, and one of the is raising hell in Haiti, as usual. There is some extremely high wind shear from Yucatan to South Florida, and we should be relatively safe until it moves. It is supposed to be the semi-permanent Bermuda High, which shows how screwed up things are.

There are hurricane watchers from South Florida in Dr Masters’ comments looking for rain, and they spotted the fracture by scanning all of the NOAA output. There are a lot of people out there looking for some rain from Miami to Yuma.

Update: Yep, and they have resurrected the Invest 94 tag, but it has to stay alive for a couple more days before the wind shear moves.
