MARTY UPGRADED TO HURRICANE STATUS

HURRICANE MARTY DISCUSSION NUMBER 9

NWS NATIONAL HURRICANE CENTER MIAMI FL EP172015


400 PM CDT MON SEP 28 2015





Air Force Reserve Hurricane Hunter data was very helpful with both the positioning and intensity of Marty this afternoon. 


The data show that Marty has become a hurricane, with SFMR winds of 70 kt observed, which will be used as the initial wind speed.


The aircraft fix position was about 30 n mi to the northeast of my previous estimate. 


Consequently, based on the aircraft fix data and
a longer-term motion -- Marty appears to be moving northeastward at about 5 kt. Guidance has all shifted northeastward, with the hurricane likely to move very near the coast of Mexico on Tuesday, and a number of models move the cyclone inland. 



While the consensus is still offshore, the official forecast follows the trend of the guidance by bringing Marty within 20 n mi of the coast. This change necessitates a Hurricane Warning for the coast of south-central Mexico. If the cyclone survives land interac…

T.S. MARTY WILL SOAK MEXICO MANGO COUNTRY

The tropical storm is expected to remain in an environment of moderate westerly shear during the next 12-24 hours, and little change in strength is expected in the short term.



 Increasing vertical shear and potentially cooler SSTs due to upwelling are expected to cause a gradual decrease in strength beginning on
Tuesday. 



Weakening should then continue throughout the remainder of the forecast period while Marty remains in an area of moderate to strong southwesterly shear. 




The NHC intensity forecast is a little
below the statistical guidance during the first 24 hours, but follows a blend of the SHIPS/LGEM models during the remainder of the period.










The tropical storm is forecast to drift northward or northeastward during the next day or so.

 The model guidance is in disagreement on how close Marty will get to the coast of Mexico during the next 36-48 hours. 


The GFS continues to take Marty inland, while the GFS ensemble mean and the ECMWF show less of a northeastward motion and keep the tropic…

Australia is expected to produce about eight million trays of mangoes in the 2015/16 season, which should keep growers busy and consumers happy.






The national crop forecast, released today by the Australian Mango Industry Association (AMIA), predicts Queensland will produce about 3.8 million trays and the Northern Territory will produce 3.6 million trays, with the remaining trays coming from Western Australia, New South Wales and Victoria.







If the 2015/16 crop forecast comes to fruition, it will be down on last…
