Hazards and Tropical Weather

Hazardous weather is not expected today

Ian may approach the area Friday into Saturday. Windy conditions and strong to severe thunderstorms with heavy rainfall would be possible if the track is over or near our area.





TROPICAL WEATHER OUTLOOK




Tropical Weather Outlook
NWS National Hurricane Center Miami FL
200 AM EDT Mon Sep 26 2022

For the North Atlantic...Caribbean Sea and the Gulf of Mexico:

Active Systems:
The National Hurricane Center is issuing advisories on Tropical Storm Ian, located over the western Caribbean Sea, and has issued the last advisory on Tropical Storm Gaston, located a few hundred miles west of the western Azores.

1. Central Tropical Atlantic:
An area of low pressure located several hundred miles west of the Cabo Verde Islands is producing persistent but disorganized showers and thunderstorms. Environmental conditions appear conducive for some development, and a tropical depression could form during the next few days before upper-level winds become less favorable toward the end of the week. The system is expected to meander during the next day or two and then move slowly north-northwestward.

* Formation chance through 48 hours...medium...40 percent.
* Formation chance through 5 days...medium...50 percent.



Tropical Storm Ian Discussion Number 12
NWS National Hurricane Center Miami FL AL092022
1100 PM EDT Sun Sep 25 2022

The storm has become better organized-looking on satellite imagery, with strengthening central convection and developing banding features. Upper-level anticyclonic outflow also appears to be increasing over the system. Flight-level winds, Doppler radar velocities, and dropsonde data from a NOAA Hurricane Hunter aircraft indicate that Ian's intensity is now near 55 kt.

Ian has turned toward the northwest and the initial motion estimate is now 315/11 kt. During the next 48 hours, the tropical cyclone is expected to turn toward the north as it moves along the western side of a mid-level high pressure area. Later in the forecast period, a broad mid-tropospheric trough over the eastern United States is likely to induce a slightly east of northward motion. However, around 4 days, the steering currents are forecast to weaken as the trough moves to the east of Ian's longitude. Some of the guidance model tracks such as that from the GFS have, again, shifted to the east, mainly after 48 hours. The official track forecast has been shifted somewhat to the east of the previous one and is mainly a blend of the latest ECMWF and GFS predictions. It should again be stressed that there is still significant uncertainty in the track of Ian, especially in the 3-5 day time frame. Users should not focus on the details of the track forecast at longer time ranges.

Observations from the aircraft indicate that the tropical cyclone is developing an inner core, so significant intensification is likely to occur during the next couple of days. The SHIPS Rapid Intensification Index indicate a fairly high chance for rapid strengthening during the next 24 to 36 hours, and the official forecast reflects this likelihood, calling for Ian to become a major hurricane over the southeastern Gulf of Mexico.

Key Messages:

1. Ian is expected to produce heavy rainfall and instances of flash flooding and possible mudslides in areas of higher terrain, particularly over Jamaica and Cuba. Considerable flooding impacts are possible later this week in west central Florida. Additional flash and urban flooding, and flooding on rivers across the Florida Peninsula and parts of the Southeast cannot be ruled out for later this week.

2. Life-threatening storm surge and hurricane-force winds are expected in portions of western Cuba beginning late Monday, and Ian is forecast to be at or near major hurricane strength when it is near western Cuba. Efforts to protect life and property should be rushed to completion.

3. Ian is expected to be a major hurricane in the eastern Gulf of Mexico during the middle of this week, but uncertainty in the track and intensity forecasts remains higher than usual. Regardless of Ian’s exact track and intensity, there is a risk of dangerous storm surge, hurricane-force winds, and heavy rainfall along the west coast of Florida and the Florida Panhandle by the middle of this week, and residents in Florida should ensure they have their hurricane plan in place. Follow any advice given by local officials and closely monitor updates to the forecast.

TROPICAL TIDBITS

Tropical Tidbits is a website run by Macon Media's favorite no-nonsense tropical forecaster, Levi Cowan. He does not post material just to get clicks or to sensationalize the storms he covers to "make them more exciting." He is reliable and sober, unlike The Weather Channel crowd of Drama Queen Meteorologists.

Levi typically posts videos late in the afternoon or early before midnight on Youtube. [Youtube Channel]
