Title: NE Pacific Weather Tracking/Study
Post by: atomic7732 on August 09, 2011, 09:44:09 PM

I thought I'd make a topic for this. I'll be posting some graphics daily at around the same time, or at least the images will be. Help out with whatever... talk about weather events as well here... I don't want to hog every post in this topic.

In today's I don't really know what 5 is doing but it might be a bit subtropical (on visible and IR wavelengths)? I'm no expert, but I guess we'll just have to watch and wait.

Upper level lows - My knowledge of water vapor imagery interpretation

I intend to turn this into a rightfully compiled list of official data sources as well as my personal graphic for it, but I will have a personal touch, for example, any anomalies in the data (missed subtropical cyclones, other interesting bits). I don't know how legit this will be if I find a subtropical cyclone or something and wikipedia or something needs a source, or anything. We'll have to see how this turns out in the next few days and what I decide to do with it.

Pacific Windstorm Name List [PDF] (http://paladinofstorms.net/meteo/npac/Pacific%20Windstorm%20Name%20List.pdf) (has name origins and contributors and looks nice)

Windstorm Track File (https://docs.google.com/document/d/10qmG7ZPI3rERwMjGOPsFD_Ha6Z09iMkQoE2jPSsPhcg/edit) - for editing best tracks and updating

some useful sources would be http://manati.star.nesdis.noaa.gov/datasets/ASCATData.php/ASCATData.php, CIMSS' satellite derived windspeeds, and the Ocean Prediction Center

this post (http://universesandbox.com/forum/index.php/topic,4368.msg155181.html#msg155181) explains how to use McIDAS V.

Definition of a nameable extratropical cyclone:
1. It must have winds at or above 35kt in its near vicinity.
2. It must have a low pressure center.
3. The low's outermost closed isobar must be 8 hPa higher than the minimum at the center.
4. It must be within the Northeast Pacific basin*.
5. Exceptions may be made for storms near the Northeast Pacific basin that are already notable.

*Definition of the Northeast Pacific basin: It is the region of ocean between 180 and 110W, 20N and the continental divide of North America, and the Bering Sea west of 180.

Title: Re: NE Pacific Weather Tracking/Study
Post by: atomic7732 on August 30, 2015, 09:01:08 PM
sure what do you want to do

you're hired we start tomorrow

my general plan is that we'll write a daily summary if there are no windstorms, and probably summarize what happened. for example, "significant low <pressure> <location> moved <blah blah> since the last summary, or formed, or dissipated" and if it is likely to become a windstorm or not

if there are storms then probably issue 2 or 3 gale/storm/hurricane warning a day but i'm not sure what the timing for that would be. i don't expect us to do shifts or anything like that so it'll basically just be after a certain elapsed time if you can get to it, go for it.

some useful sources would be http://manati.star.nesdis.noaa.gov/datasets/ASCATData.php/ASCATData.php, CIMSS' satellite derived windspeeds, and the Ocean Prediction Center
Title: Re: NE Pacific Weather Tracking/Study
Post by: atomic7732 on August 31, 2015, 07:58:46 AM
oh you know what i am going to do

adapt my TC tracking tool to work for this

also we could keep internal tracks updated to every 6 (or even 3, since fast moving?) hours even if no warning was issued for a particular time

like gray (pre- or ex-windstorm), yellow (gale), orange (storm), reddish-pink (hurricane)

poor estimate

though you can estimate because a degree of latitude is approximately 60 nmi at all times

http://www.ssec.wisc.edu/mcidas/software/v/ might be a good idea actually, i didn't think of that

it has like 1-2 days of past data, just connect to satepsanone.blahblahblah server i forgot what the GOES-West infrared and visible imagery was called though i'll check later

hint: it probably starts with GW IR is band 4 vis is band 1 or 2

Set your server to satepsanone.nesdis.etc & click connect

(https://i.gyazo.com/944f390093297088ce172fada960a4d1.png)

select GWNHEM04I4 (or 01V for visible, and like 04I3 for water vapor), GWFDSK (full disk), or GE (goes east) MT (MTSAT) etc for different satellites and sectors and wavelengths

(http://i.imgur.com/ynRIB0Q.png)

Select how many images you want. It will take a while to load more than like one image (when you display them later).

(http://i.imgur.com/b4R2tKJ.png)

Open this thingy up

(http://i.imgur.com/wkecm5F.png)

Select 'Brightness' or 'Temperature' because those are calibrated data sets. Find the Advanced tab, and click the green expandy symbol to tell it to display a full res image. Then click Create Display.

(http://i.imgur.com/Lv8AmWR.png)

It will load and then your second window will be like 'hi i have thing'

(https://i.gyazo.com/0aa26967ee97dd53e3befb0733495e21.png)

You can change the projection. I created my own projection, it's pretty simple, and it works well for both the tropics and especially the poles. You can pan (and zoom) with the tools on the right, or scroll with your mouse (to zoom, but you can't click and drag to pan)

(http://i.imgur.com/1uVrmLJ.png)

and then you can mess with the color tables or make you own. Here's Asaaluk in my extratropical IR color scheme

we need to consistently keep track of these things at least by name

and we can name things outside of our region if it's large enough or moving east

Definition of a namable extratropical cyclone:
1. It must have winds at or above 35kt in its near vicinity.
2. It must have a low pressure center.
3. The low pressure center's outermost closed isobar must be 8mb higher than the center.
4. It must be within the Northeast Pacific basin*.
5. Exceptions may be made for storms near the Northeast Pacific basin that are already notable.

*Definition of the Northeast Pacific basin: It is the region of ocean between 180 and 110W, 20N and the continental divide of North America, and the Bering Sea west of 180.

WINDSTORM JERRY CONTINUES TO WEAKEN AND IS NOW A MINIMAL WINDSTORM.
THE SYSTEM SHOULD CEASE THE GENERATION OF GALE-FORCE WINDS OVERNIGHT
BUT WILL REMAIN TRACKED AS LONG AS IT IS RECOGNIZABLE.

FAR TO THE SOUTHEAST, WINDSTORM KEGET HAS MERGED WITH A SMALLER LOW
PRESSURE TO ITS WEST AND HAS PREVENTED THE SYSTEM FROM GAINING
A MODEST REPRESENTATION ON SATELLITE. ALTHOUGH, THE SYSTEM APPEARS
TO BE REORGANIZING AND CONTINUES TO STRENGTHEN. IN ADDITION, KEGET
SEEMS TO HAVE GENERATED A NEW CIRCULATION CENTER NEAR 150W, A
SIGNIFICANT JUMP EAST FROM ITS PREVIOUS LOCATION. THIS IS LIKELY A RESULT
OF THE NEARLY COMPLETE MERGER. RAPID INTENSIFICATION OF THIS SYSTEM
IS EXPECTED THROUGHOUT THE NEXT DAY OR SO.

i didn't really like it

i wanted it to be more concise, cover more things, look less like advisories, and look more like summaries

but the advisories were useful for past tracking, so that's why i added that tracking data doc, so that if you or i want to go back on the stuff we missed (usually 12z) we can put it in the track file whenever and not have to write a summary or advisory for it after the fact

/me proposes the name "Chandler" (on List 3) be removed in favor of "Chufknikich," which means "little great horned owl" in Karuk

also should we retire names and draft replacements? and if so, what would the criteria be for that... ?

if it affects land? if it is a severe windstorm?

criteria for retirement is "if it gets in the news" so basically if it's a significant storm either records-wise or has effects

Borat (it was a pretty deep storm and intensified rapidly and CIMSS pointed it out on their twitter page but idk if that's enough)
Inteus? (intensified rapidly and hit BC/washington area)
Jerry (deepest storm in nepac in a year)
Lane? (idr, it was stronk)
Quinn? (possibly was newsworthy in the pnw)
Vilen (severe weather in california etc)

Post by: atomic7732 on September 19, 2016, 12:12:26 PM
the 978 or 988?

either way we do

the 988 has no local resilience (it's not 8 hPa deep) and the 978 doesn't have associated gales, so neither gets a name

the only problem i have with our criteria is it misses some nice looking weaks :(
(because they are not deep enough)



in other news "winter" begins soon (october)
should we wait until the 1st or start whenever we get the first storm from now?

Post by: atomic7732 on September 21, 2016, 09:47:04 PM
the system in the gulf of alaska is likely to become deep enough to classify as a windstorm at 06z

should we designate it and begin?

it would be called Windstorm Kilallurak

it is expected to cross over alaska into the arctic ocean but will not be of windstorm intensity by that time (we'd drop it anyway, unless dar wants to be pleasure master arctic windstorm tracker)

around 3 to 5 days out we should see one or two more named (weak) windstorms off BC



over the next six months we are likely to reach somewhere near the end of List 6 which is the list just completed in name game, which means we'll have to soon determine the final forms of the lists from name game (names like Whopper, Xanax, and Yqt for example will probably need to be replaced). Ho as well might have to, just because, while a legitimate name, could also be considered an offensive word.
Title: Re: NE Pacific Weather Tracking/Study
Post by: Darvince on September 22, 2016, 10:29:41 AM
yes begin with the kill aura

also things in the arctic ocean are almost never of windstorm intensity like even the 970s in august only reached intensities of 35kt
