Quote: The next African tropical wave may develop
A tropical wave emerging from the coast of Africa on Sunday night is expected to develop into a tropical depression by Friday over the central tropical Atlantic, according to the 12Z Sunday runs of our top three models for predicting tropical cyclone genesis--the European, GFS, and UKMET models. The wave is predicted to head west to west-northwest at 15 – 20 mph, reaching the northern Lesser Antilles Islands no earlier than Tuesday, September 5. However, the storm is emerging from Africa fairly far to the north, and has a good chance of turning more to the northwest by the weekend and missing the Lesser Antilles Islands entirely. In its tropical weather outlook issued at 8 pm EDT Sunday, the National Hurricane Center gave this new wave 2-day and 5-day odds of development of 0% and 40%, respectively.

Quote: African tropical wave 93L expected to develop

A tropical wave that emerged from the coast of Africa on Sunday night was designated 93L by NHC on Monday morning. Satellite images on Monday morning showed that 93L had a modest amount of heavy thunderstorm activity that was growing in organization, with plenty of spin apparent in the cloud pattern. Wind shear was high, 20 – 30 knots, but was expected to fall to the low to moderate range, 5 – 15 knots, on Tuesday through Friday, according to the 12Z Monday run of the SHIPS model. This should allow the wave to develop into a tropical depression by Friday over the central tropical Atlantic, as predicted by the 0Z Monday runs of our top three models for predicting tropical cyclone genesis--the European, GFS, and UKMET models. These models have been persistent in developing the new system over multiple runs, giving increased confidence that we will see a new tropical depression in the Atlantic by late this week. The wave is predicted to head west to west-northwest at 15 – 20 mph, reaching the northern Lesser Antilles Islands no earlier than Tuesday, September 5. However, the storm will probably gain enough latitude this week to allow it to feel the steering influence of a trough of low pressure passing to its north, resulting in a track that would miss the Lesser Antilles Islands. Only about 10% of the 70 members of the 0Z Monday GFS and European model ensemble forecasts showed the wave affecting the Lesser Antilles next week. However, it is too early to put much confidence in the system’s long-range track until it consolidates into a tropical depression. In its tropical weather outlook issued at 8 am EDT Monday, the National Hurricane Center gave this new wave 2-day and 5-day odds of development of 30% and 70%, respectively.

African Wave 93L a Potential Long-Range Threat
Dr. Jeff Masters · August 29, 2017, 15:18



Above: 93L near the Cabo Verde Islands off the coast of Africa, as seen on Tuesday morning, August 29, 2017, by the MODIS instrument on NASA's Terra satellite.


A tropical wave located near the Cabo Verde Islands on Tuesday morning has the potential to be Tropical Storm Irma late this week, and could pose a long-range threat next week to the Lesser Antilles Islands. Satellite images on Tuesday morning showed that 93L had a modest amount of heavy thunderstorm activity that was steadily growing in organization, with a prominent low-level spiral band on the south side and plenty of spin apparent in the cloud pattern. Conditions were favorable for development, with sea surface temperatures (SSTs) near 28°C (82°F)—more than 1°C (2°F) above average, moderate wind shear of 10 - 20 knots, and a moist surrounding atmosphere with a mid-level relative humidity of 70%. Wind shear was predicted to be in the low to moderate range, 5 – 15 knots, on Tuesday through Sunday, according to the 12Z Tuesday run of the SHIPS model. This should allow the wave to develop into a tropical depression by Friday over the central tropical Atlantic, as predicted by the 0Z Tuesday runs of our top three models for predicting tropical cyclone genesis--the European, GFS, and UKMET models. These models have been persistent in developing the new system over multiple runs, giving increased confidence that we will see a new tropical depression in the Atlantic late this week.


The wave is predicted to head generally west-northwest at 15 – 20 mph through Friday, then assume a more westerly or even west-southwesterly track over the weekend, as a strong ridge of high pressure builds to the north of 93L. This would potentially bring 93L into the Lesser Antilles Islands as early as Tuesday, September 5, as predicted by the 0Z Tuesday run of the European model and most of its 50 ensemble members. The GFS model was much less concerning, with its 0Z and 6Z Tuesday runs predicting that a strong trough of low pressure would turn 93L to the northwest early next week, resulting in 93L missing the Lesser Antilles Islands by more than 500 miles. It is too early to stress out about the European model’s solution until 93L consolidates into a tropical depression, though, as typical errors in a 7-day track forecast are well over 500 miles. In its tropical weather outlook issued at 8 am EDT Tuesday, the National Hurricane Center gave 93L 2-day and 5-day odds of development of 70% and 90%, respectively.

Track not unlike that projected for Harvey at this point in its travels across.



[Image: clarki11latest.png]

[Image: 2017AL93_MPSATWND_201708300000_SWHR.GIF]





Up to 33mph with no noticeable change in pressure.


Far too early to project accurately except to know this is more than just likely to develop and bears watching for now.
