Franklin leaving

GULFIR172212045

Hurricane Franklin is churning out in the Southern Bay of Campeche.   It will have one last hurrah as this minimal storm goes into Mexico.  As it moves westward it will die out, but even now it is a small hurricane.  It is packing 75mph winds,  minimum low pressure of 984mb.  It’s movement is 12mph and heading due west.

Dry air is being shown on Satellite imagery, swirling towards Franklin’s center.    It is also beginning to show a ragged eye and shearing.   It will become a Tropical Depression entering Mexico.   Watches and Warnings are already out.    Expect high waves,  along with the winds and torrential downpours.  Tornadoes/Waterspouts can be expected.

The other two systems will interact w/ a cold front that extends towards New England.   These systems will be areas of Low Pressure along the frontal boundary.  The amount of rain will depend on how much moisture and the strength of these of these disturbances.

...FLASH FLOOD WATCH REMAINS IN EFFECT UNTIL 10 PM PDT THIS
EVENING...

The Flash Flood Watch continues for

* Portions of northeast California and Nevada.

* Until 10 PM PDT this evening

* An upper low and abundant moisture will provide a threat for
  flash flooding through this evening.

* The highest potential for flash flooding will exist mainly north
  of Interstate 80 with lesser chances to the south where drier
  air can be seen filtering into the region. Strong outflow winds
  and small hail are more of the threat for these southern areas.

* Steep terrain, recently burned areas from wildfires, and areas
  which have already received heavy rainfall since last weekend
  will be especially at risk for flash flooding and debris
  flows.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

People in the watch area should continue to be aware of the
possibility for heavy rainfall, avoid low lying areas, and be
careful when approaching highway dips and underpasses. Do not
drive your vehicle into areas where water covers the road. The
road may be washed out or the water depth may be too great to
allow your car to cross safely.

BULLETIN - EAS ACTIVATION REQUESTED
Flash Flood Warning
National Weather Service Reno NV
334 PM PDT WED AUG 9 2017

The National Weather Service in Reno has issued a

* Flash Flood Warning for...
  Douglas County in western Nevada...

* Until 630 PM PDT

* At 331 PM PDT, Doppler radar indicated thunderstorms producing
  heavy rain across the eastern parts of Douglas County, east of
  Minden and Gardnerville. This includes the Preacher Fire burn
  area. Storms will continue through at least 4 PM with rainfall
  amounts over one inch likely.

* Some locations that will experience flooding include the recent
  Preacher Fire burn area, Buckeye Creek, Highway 395 between
  Gardnerville and Topaz Lake including Holbrook Junction. Watch for
  debris flows which can occur suddenly.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

Move away from recently burned areas. Life-threatening flooding of
creeks, roads and normally dry arroyos is likely. The heavy rains
will likely trigger rockslides, mudslides and debris flows in steep
terrain, especially in and around these areas.

heart and lung diseases, and aggravate other serious health
problems. Children, the elderly, and individuals with respiratory
illnesses are most at risk of serious health effects. If you
experience respiratory distress, you should speak with your
physician. Limit outdoor activities and keep children indoors if it

Hurricane/Tropical Franklin

Well,  that was easy and will remain so.  From Tropical Storm to Hurricane and back to a Tropical Storm.   Are we clear now?  It was pretty easy as far as a prediction is concerned.   As Franklin move towards the Yucatan

Tropical Storm Franklin Discussion Number 5
NWS National Hurricane Center Miami FL AL072017
400 PM CDT Mon Aug 07 2017

Visible satellite imagery continues to show a fairly well-organized
tropical cyclone, although infrared images indicate some warming of
the convective cloud tops. Observations from an Air Force Hurricane
Hunter aircraft show that the storm has a fairly broad inner core,
which is consistent with the ragged eye-like feature noted on the
visible imagery. The current intensity is kept at 50 kt based on a
blend of SFMR and flight-level observations from the aircraft along
with sampling considerations. Franklin has a well-defined,
symmetric upper-level outflow pattern, and some strengthening is
still expected prior to landfall. Although the cyclone could be near
hurricane strength at landfall on the east coast of the Yucatan
peninsula, the broad inner core of the system would argue against
rapid intensification during the next 12 hours. Weakening will occur
due to the passage over the Yucatan peninsula, and restrengthening
over the very warm waters of the Bay of Campeche is forecast.
Although northerly shear could inhibit strengthening somewhat,
Franklin is predicted to become a hurricane before making
landfall in mainland Mexico. The official intensity forecast is
similar to the latest HFIP Corrected Consensus forecast.

Based on center fixes from the aircraft along with geostationary
and microwave imagery, the initial motion is northwestward or
310/11 kt. The track forecast reasoning remains basically
unchanged. A mid-level high pressure area near the northwestern
Gulf of Mexico coast should force Franklin to take a
west-northwestward to westward course for the next several days.

 

FORECAST POSITIONS AND MAX WINDS

INIT 07/2100Z 18.6N 85.9W 50 KT 60 MPH
12H 08/0600Z 19.1N 87.6W 60 KT 70 MPH…INLAND

96H 11/1800Z…DISSIPATED

As mentioned above there are considerations as upper warming and some sheering.   The possibility of a strong Hurricane is not likely.   Tropical Storm Franklin will hastily dissipate because of it’s interaction with the Yucatan and then mostly a marginal Hurricane.  For the people in Mexico be advised that any Hurricane can be very dangerous no matter the strength and that is even true for Tropical Storms.

Nearing the Mexican Coastline,  the big issue will be winds,  flooding and potential for a few tornadoes in the Southeatern Quadrant of the storm and a few waterspouts.  (Tornadoes over water).    Frequent Lighting and power outages will be widespread.,

This Hazardous Weather Outlook is for north Alabama and portions of
southern middle Tennessee.

.DAY ONE...Tonight...

Scattered to numerous thunderstorms will continue into the evening
and overnight hours, as a weak frontal boundary shifts south through
the area. A few of these storms could become strong and produce gusty
winds. Additionally, locally heavy rainfall is possible which may
lead to instances of flash flooding in low lying and urban areas,
especially south of the Tennessee River.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Tuesday through Sunday...

A stalled frontal boundary just south of the area will keep isolated
to scattered showers and thunderstorms in the forecast most of the
upcoming week.

A better chance of showers and thunderstorms develops again toward
the end of the week and into the weekend as this boundary moves
north over the area. Locally heavy rainfall will again be possible
during this timeframe, possibly producing some flash flooding.

.SPOTTER CALL TO ACTION STATEMENT...

Activation of storm spotters and emergency management personnel is
not anticipated at this time.

...THE FLASH FLOOD WARNING REMAINS IN EFFECT UNTIL 930 PM CDT FOR
NORTHWESTERN MORGAN COUNTY...

At 748 PM CDT, Doppler radar and automated rain gauges indicated
that earlier thunderstorms produced heavy rain over the warned area.
Two to three inches of rain have already fallen, with additional
light rain expected to continue over the next two hours. Flash
flooding may be occurring along low-lying spots and near streams and
creeks.

Some locations that will experience flooding include...
Decatur, Hartselle, Priceville, Trinity, Somerville and Basham.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

Turn around, don`t drown when encountering flooded roads. Most flood
deaths occur in vehicles.

A Flash Flood Warning means that flooding is imminent or occurring.
If you are in the warned area move to higher ground immediately.
Residents living along streams and creeks should take immediate
precautions to protect life and property.
