RE: TROPICAL STORM IRMA
It is rather uncommon, especially given the time of year, for a system's track to take it south of due west. This doesn't bode well for us on the gulf coast if Irma maintains her veracity as she moves through the Caribbean!

Tropical Storm Irma Forms in the Eastern Atlantic
Dr. Jeff Masters · August 30, 2017, 19:20



Above: Tropical Storm Irma as seen on Wednesday morning, August 30, 2017, from a composite of the MODIS images from NASA's Terra and Aqua satellites.

Tropical Storm Irma formed on Wednesday morning in the far eastern Atlantic, and has the potential to become a dangerous long-track Cape-Verdes-type hurricane. Satellite images on Wednesday afternoon showed that Irma was well-organized, with plenty of heavy thunderstorms, impressive low-level spiral bands, and an upper-level outflow channel to the south. Conditions were favorable for development, with sea surface temperatures (SSTs) near 27.5°C (82°F), light wind shear of 5 -10 knots, and a moist surrounding atmosphere with a mid-level relative humidity of 70%.



Intensity forecast for Irma
Quote:For the next five days, wind shear was predicted to be very favorable for development--a low 5 – 10 knots--according to the 18Z Wednesday run of the SHIPS model. Irma will begin moving into a drier region with cooler sea surface temperatures beginning on Thursday. Friday through Sunday, it’s expected SSTs will be 26.5 – 27.5°C (80 - 82°F), and the mid-level relative humidity will be 50 – 55%--conditions that are marginal for development. If Irma can build an inner core and intensify into a hurricane before Friday, it may be able to shrug off these marginal conditions without serious difficulty, though. Early next week, when Irma will be approaching the Lesser Antilles Islands, SSTs will warm considerably with a major increase in total heat content. The atmosphere is also predicted to be moister with low shear, so increased strengthening is likely. Three of our most reliable intensity models, the HWRF, LGEM, and DSHIPS, predicted in their 12Z and 18Z Wednesday runs that Irma would be a major Category 3 hurricane with 115 mph winds by Monday, and I think this is a reasonable forecast.



Track forecast for Irma
Quote:Irma will head generally west at about 10 - 15 mph through Friday, then assume a more west-southwesterly track over the weekend, as the ridge of high pressure steering the storm builds to the southwest. This would potentially bring Irma into the Lesser Antilles Islands as early as Tuesday night, September 5, as predicted by the 12Z Wednesday run of the European model. The GFS model was much less concerning, with its 12Z Wednesday run predicting that a strong trough of low pressure would turn Irma to the northwest early next week, resulting in the storm missing the Lesser Antilles Islands by more than 500 miles. It is too early to pick a solution, since 7-day hurricane forecasts are of extremely low reliability.

Tropical Storm Irma Discussion Number 3
NWS National Hurricane Center Miami FL AL112017
1100 PM AST Wed Aug 30 2017

Irma continues to become better organized, with the development of
a small CDO feature
and increased banding near the center. An
earlier high-resolution Windsat microwave overpass showed that Irma
has a tight inner core and a low-level eye-like feature was
present. A Dvorak classification of T3.5 from TAFB is the basis
for the initial intensity of 55 kt. Irma is expected to steadily
strengthen during the next couple of days while it moves through a
low-shear and moist environment, and remains over warm sea
surface temperatures. After that time, slightly cooler SSTs and
lower mid-level moisture may temper the intensification process.
However, the statistical aids, HWRF, and most of the consensus
models make Irma a major hurricane by the end of the forecast
period.
The NHC forecast is fairly similar to the previous advisory
through 48 hours, but is above the earlier forecast thereafter. The
new official intensity forecast could still be a little conservative

as it remains a little below the SHIPS/LGEM guidance and the ICON
consensus at days 4 and 5.

Irma is moving westward at about 10 kt to the south of deep-layer
ridge over the eastern Atlantic. The track forecast reasoning is
about the same as the previous advisory, with Irma expected to turn
west-northwestward on Thursday, then continue on that heading
for a couple of days. The high pressure ridge over the central
Atlantic is forecast to strengthen later this week, which is
expected to result in Irma turning west-southwestward by the
weekend.
There is still some spread among the track models, so the
NHC forecast lies near a blend of the typically reliable GFS and
ECMWF, and the HFIP corrected consensus.
