Fuego Events

Skyepony's Wunderblog is moving to Skyepony Weather.

Find me at Skye Pony@Skyepony on Twitter.

Check out my flute music on Soundcloud.

Tend to write recipes down but will start publishing them as well here at http://skyeponyrecipes.weebly.com. This is an unfinished site from some time ago, never before now published, so don't laugh too hard til summer and enough heat to drive me to fix it up some.

Weather Underground on disqus is where a good bit of the Wunderblog Community seems to be heading to. Everyone will need a disqus handle to comment on Dr Jeff Masters and Bob Henson's Cat6 blog along with the surviving featured blogs, my blog and the channels on discus that much of the community has moved to.

RobtheHood's WunderArk is the new home of many of the Wunderblogs. I'll be blogging there too..

WU Survivor Group at Flickr is another.

WUnderFriends is there as well. They split off as Wunderphotos ended.

There are a few groups on facebook:
WU Photographers is a closed group from when WUnderphotos ended. They make FB almost tolerable:)

There is good old WUBAs but they all use their real names - for those who don't know each others real names, you can always ask :)

RenoSoHill / fishless has moved on here.

Thanks everyone for all the great years of blogging here. Hope everyone finds what they seek, where ever they chase their rainbow next.

Eclipse Anillo de Fuego~ For those that didn't make it to the Southern Hemisphere for the spectacular annual eclipse with it's "Ring of Fire" on Sunday February 26, 2017, here is the video.

Guatemala's Volcano Fuego erupted again on Saturday Feb 25, 2017. Plumes of ash rained down on nearby communities. David de Leon, spokesman for the National Coordinator for Disaster Reduction, said the volcanic activity later stabilized and fell within the normal range after an eruptive phase that lasted 13 hours. The rumbling 3,763-meter-high (12,345-foot) volcano registered a powerful eruption from 11:28 pm Friday (0528 GMT Saturday). In the afternoon, explosions generated ash columns 4,500 meters above sea level, 500 meters less than in the morning. The longest of three lava flows so far stretched 1,600 meters. Originally forecast that the plume might reach Guatemala City, it doesn't appear to have. There is some impressive explosions in the video.

I'm hoping we all find "a place" where we can gather once again during stormy or dangerous weather events. Learned so much on WU and made so many friends!

Tropical Disturbance Summary
9:00 AM FST April 3 2017
=============================

At 21:00 PM UTC, Tropical Disturbance 19F (1005 hPa) located at 12.2S 170.8W is reported as slowly moving. Position poor based on HIMAWARI-8 visible/infrared imagery and peripheral surface observations.

Convection persistent to northeast with poor organization. System lies under a upper ridge in a low sheared environment. Cyclonic circulation extends up to 500HPA. Sea surface temperature is around 30C.

Global models have picked up the system and move it southwards with further intensification.

The potential for this tropical disturbance to form into a tropical cyclone in the next 24-48 hours is LOW.

Hi Skye! ~ Thanks for all the help and time you gave to so many while as a moderator/blogger on WU, I wish you every success in all your professional and personal endeavors and hope to see you again soon on Rob's new Ark. It seems to replicate some of the best of WU but could soon become even greater for those of us WU bloggers now being shunted aside. I'm glad that, despite these individual blogs falling by the wayside, some of our formed longtime friendships now have alternative refuges to remain intact. Take care and hope you'll stay in touch when able.

Skye, aquak9, LakeWorthFinn - That was the the right person, turtlehurricane! I finally found one of our conversations, from 2005, in the waning day of the sun setting on WU user blog comments: https://www.wunderground.com/blog/turtlehurricane/ comment.html?entrynum=107 There are more discussions we had, mainly I want to see how my 10+ year-old comments are faring as compared to the current thinking in 2017.

Like everyone else, I have my strengths and weaknesses, one weak point is I have a hard time remembering names. Thank you for helping.

I'm glad to hear that turtlehurricane held true and actually may have worked at NHC. That is great to know, before it becomes unknowable for me.

I can remember making comments on another user's blog, somebody long gone, handle was like 'seaturtlelover' or similar, we had a discussion going on global warming, and I did some calculations on the volume of methane I believed was locked up as clathrates in the permafrost and the continental shelves of the arctic ocean, based on some USGS estimates. We were having a great discussion, then someone else interjected, "take it easy, you are talking to a 13-year old". Anyways I've looked for that old discussion and I could never find it again. Now all these great comments and debates are going to be lost. "Like tears in the rain". As bad as burning books; they should be ashamed. The internet, modern-day Library of Alexandria, an auto-combustible library, worse than Orwell's memory-hole, because we volunteered and trusted.

Las Vegas got hit by a windstorm. For a while the strip even lost power..



Was notified Artist Rising website is being taken down at the end of April.

azgrandma~ Turns out a group made Club Penguin Rewritten to save it.

guygee~ The 430something blogs of mine, think WU is archiving, just not the comments. Looks like Wayback has crawled it a few times. Mostly back in 2013.

Your blogs are historical documents, I hope you copy all of your blogs here and find a place to put it all back up on the internet somewhere, for future reference. Maybe the Internet Archives for now at least.

Dear Skye, I have found your blog so interesting on many levels over the years. Hope to see you around & look forward to some of your indoor activities as well as gardening, animals, weather, environment & space. Too bad about Club Penguin; my grandson had a lot of fun with that when he was younger.

Cyclone Debbie pulled a Sharknado..


Thanks to all my dear readers and contributors for coming by all these years.. Did get disqus on that weebly site. Visit there. I'm also trying to use twitter. I'll get links in the blog entry.

aqua~ That is awesome the number of followers there. As soon as things settle and get a chance to blog more I'll post and repost stuff there and other places. It's not a matter of privacy for me. Please follow me:) It's til this point I put all my eggs in one basket..WU. I was at home here, believed in them, backed them whole heartily. Nearly my whole internet presence is being taken down, over 45,000 comments. Most of which were my own words and original thoughts. I put it all in here and learned what the value of a comment was...it's less than a single grain of internet sand. This is getting common across the nets. Watched the kids lose their characters at Club Penguin this week and their years of history there, so Club Penguin can go 3-d for the next generation & such. Guess I'm growing more inclined to create instead of comment. Sort of evaluating the worth of other places as well...like twitter..would they be as inclined to remove the tweets of world leaders, history as it happened and such especially since sharing and archiving is the main goal of the site?

Tropical Cyclone Outlook
2:00 PM WST March 30 2017
=======================================

At 1:00 PM WST, Tropical Low Caleb (23U) lies well southwest of the Cocos (Keeling) Islands, and is moving steadily westwards. It will move west of 90.0E and out of the Western Region on Thursday night and is not expected to redevelop into a tropical cyclone.

A tropical low is forecast to develop north of the Northern Territory and move westwards across the Timor Sea over the weekend, moving into the Western Region by Monday. While it is likely to be a weak system as it enters the region, there is a chance that it develops as it moves westwards south of Indonesia during next week and the risk of a tropical cyclone in the region will increase.

Skye: Be sure to post the link to your new blog, wherever it may land.

Take care everyone! It's been nice blogging with you all here at WU.

Quoting 159. Skyepony:

So did eventually test and realize how bad the default comment system on that other site I'm moving this blog to is. Looked into it more and for a little personal blog, may can get that ad free with disqus comments. Don't be surprised if moves it all again in the summer when it gets too hot to play outside and there is time for making it all how I'd like it either...

Hey Skye - Just wanted to bid your WU blog a fond but wistful farewell. I am very appreciative of your enthusiastic and informative postings here, over these years I've been a regular reader and occasional poster. Not fond of Disqus for privacy reasons, and Weebly may not be the answer either due to limitations, but I will bookmark everything to keep track and hope for a better outcome. Cheers!

Tropical Cyclone Advice #42
Hurricane Warning
SEVERE TROPICAL CYCLONE DEBBIE, CATEGORY FOUR (24U)
11:01 AM EST March 28 2017
============================

At 11:00 AM EST, Severe Tropical Cyclone Debbie, Category Four (943 hPa) located at 20.1S 148.8E or 65 km east of Bowen and 35 km north northwest of Hamilton Island has 10 minute sustained winds of 100 knots with gusts of 140 knots. The cyclone is reported as moving southwest at 5 knots.

Hurricane Force Winds
================
35 NM from the center

Storm Force Winds
=============
60 NM from the center in northeastern quadrant
60 NM from the center in southeastern quadrant
45 NM from the center in southwestern quadrant
50 NM from the center in northwestern quadrant

Gale Force Winds
=============
120 NM from the center in northeastern quadrant
120 NM from the center in southeastern quadrant
105 NM from the center in southwestern quadrant
105 NM from the center in northwestern quadrant

Severe tropical cyclone Debbie is currently a category 4 cyclone. While small temporary variations in the track have been observed, as happens with all cyclones, the system is still forecast to move slowly west-southwest and make landfall on the mainland between Bowen and Airlie Beach around midday, or early this afternoon.

Recent significant wind gust observations include:

- 263 km/h at Hamilton Island airport at 10:25am.

- 139 km/h at Proserpine Airport 10:22 am

- 120 km/h at Bowen Airport at 10:41 am


The VERY DESTRUCTIVE CORE of severe tropical cyclone Debbie is now starting to impact the Whitsunday Islands and the nearby mainland. The center of the system is forecast to cross the mainland coast between Bowen and Airlie Beach early this afternoon with wind gusts potentially to 270 km/h near the center.

DESTRUCTIVE WINDS with gusts over 125 km/h are occurring about the coast and islands between about Bowen and Midge Point, including Proserpine, and will extend further along the coast to areas between Ayr and Sarina during this morning or afternoon. These DESTRUCTIVE WINDS may extend further northwest along the coast to Townsville and to adjacent inland areas, including Collinsville, Charters Towers, and Mount Coolon during the day today. It is possible that these DESTRUCTIVE WINDS may extend further south along the coast to St Lawrence today.

GALES are now occurring about the coast and islands between about Cape Bowling Green and Sarina. These GALES are expected to extend to the remaining coastal and island areas between Townsville and St Lawrence later today. GALES could potentially extend further north to Lucinda and further inland to locations such as Charters Towers, Pentland, Mount Coolon, and Moranbah this afternoon and tonight.

Residents between Ayr and St Lawrence are specifically warned of the dangerous storm tide as the cyclone crosses the coast. The sea is likely to rise steadily up to a level which will be significantly above the normal tide, with damaging waves, strong currents and flooding of low-lying areas extending some way inland. People living in areas likely to be affected by this flooding should take measures to protect their property as much as possible and be prepared to follow instructions regarding evacuation of the area if advised to do so by the authorities.

Areas of heavy rain with the potential to cause severe flash flooding have developed around the Central Coast and Whitsundays district. These heavy rain areas are expected to spread to other parts of the northern and central Queensland coast and adjacent inland areas today. Widespread daily rainfall totals of 150-250 mm, with isolated event totals over 500 mm, are also likely to lead to major river flooding over a broad area this week, and a Flood Watch is current for coastal catchments between Rollingstone and Gladstone, extending inland to the Upper Flinders, Thomson and Barcoo catchments.

Dvorak Intensity:T5.5/T5.5/D1.0/24 HRS

Forecast and Intensity
===============
12 HRS 20.6S 147.5E - 55 knots (CAT 2)
24 HRS 21.4S 146.6E - 30 knots (Tropical Low)
48 HRS 24.0S 147.8E - 25 knots (Tropical Low)

Additional Information
=================
Severe tropical cyclone Debbie continues to exhibits a clear eye on satellite and radar imagery. recent observations include a 10-minute mean wind of 103 knots at Hamilton Island Airport, and wind gusts of 262 km/h at Hamilton Island, 139 km/h at Proserpine airport and 119 km/h at Bowen. Other non-official observations include a 247 km/h at Airlie Beach. These peak winds appeared to coincide with the passage of an eyewall mesovortex evident in radar and visible imagery. These observations have led to setting the current intensity at 100 knots. Latest Dvorak analysis was based on an eye pattern with a LG surround, an addition of 0.5 for a B surround and an OW eye, yielding a DT of 5.5. MET and PAT were 5.5 and 5.5 respectively. The FT and CI were based on a three-hour average DT of 5.5.

Destructive gusts now being reported from the Bowen area. Observations of gales continue to be reported from south of Mackay; in the past few hours, wind speeds in the lower levels sampled by the wind profiler at the Mackay racecourse have leveled off or even decreased a little.

Significant sea level anomalies are now starting to be recorded on the DSITI storm tide monitoring gauges at Shute Harbour, Laguna Quays and Mackay with positive anomalies of approximately 1.0 to 1.5 meters and HAT exceed at Shute Harbour and Laguna Quays.

Confidence in the centre position is rated as good based on merged radar imagery, primarily from the Bowen and Mackay radars along the Queensland east coast.

The mid-level ridge to the south of the system has become the primary steering influence. Mean motion has been to the west-southwest at about 4 knots [8 km/h] during the past 12 hours; however superimposed on this track has been shorter term variations in direction and speed associated with internal rearrangements of the cyclone structure. The system is most likely to remain on a general slow west southwest track for the next 6 to 12 hours through landfall on the Queensland coast and further inland, with a subsequent curve to the south on Wednesday as the ridge weakens and an upper trough develops through southern Australia. There is still high confidence in this track.

The system remains located in an area of weak vertical wind shear over sea surface temperatures of 29 to 30 degrees Celsius. After landfall the system should initially weaken at a rate somewhat faster than the standard decay model due to enhanced topography along the post-landfall track. However, as it tracks inland and curves onto a southerly and eventually a south-southeasterly track during Wednesday and Thursday, interaction with the upper level trough over southern Australia may actually lead to an extratropical transition and possibly a slight re-strengthening of the system.

Tropical Cyclone Watches/Warnings
========================
A TROPICAL CYCLONE WARNING is in effect from Lucinda to St Lawrence, including Townsville, Mackay, and the Whitsunday Islands, extending inland to Charters Towers, Mount Coolon, Moranbah, and Pentland of Queensland

Max~ I'd left this for him to send to you..

Quickest and easiest for Max & still be communal would be for him to make his own channel on disqus and host it there. That way he can keep the comments open (though we could on seeds of WU) and the post wouldn't get buried by other posts in the channel. And if he buried it a little like he did here blogging about storms it wouldn't be that far down and he could maybe pin it to the top of his channel. Have him post a link at Seeds of WU too, they would pin it on the side of the community there for everyone else to get in on (like others that have started channels there). This way he could still gather them off Cat6 comments or have people post them in his channel (maybe even seeds of WU). It would probably be alot easier than years past because much of it would come up in his disqus notifications if it was in response to his comments on Cat6, Seeds of WU or his channel. He may want to wait til right after the comment system switches over. That gives nearly 2 full months before season and a clearer picture of how this is going down.

Hello Skye
Kotg mentioned in my blog the possibility of helping me keep up the hurricane prediction list

SEVERE TROPICAL CYCLONE DEBBIE, CATEGORY THREE (24U)
5:04 PM EST March 27 2017
============================

At 5:00 PM EST, Severe Tropical Cyclone Debbie, Category Three (952 hPa) located at 19.5S 150.1E or 200 km east northeast of Bowen and 205 km north northeast of Mackay has 10 minute sustained winds of 85 knots with gusts of 120 knots. The cyclone is reported as moving southwest at 3 knots.

35 NM from the center

Storm Force Winds
=============
80 NM from the center in northeastern quadrant
80 NM from the center in southeastern quadrant
80 NM from the center in southwestern quadrant
80 NM from the center in northwestern quadrant

Gale Force Winds
=============
110 NM from the center in northeastern quadrant
140 NM from the center in southeastern quadrant
140 NM from the center in southwestern quadrant
110 NM from the center in northwestern quadrant

Severe Tropical cyclone Debbie strengthened into a category 3 system this morning, and is expected to intensify further as it continues to move west-southwest towards the north Queensland coast today and overnight tonight. Severe Tropical cyclone Debbie is forecast to make landfall as a category 4 tropical cyclone between Cape Upstart and Cape Hillsborough north of Mackay on Tuesday morning.

GALES are now occuring about the Whitsunday Islands and the nearby coast, extending south to about Sarina, and are expected to extend to the remaining exposed coast and islands elsewhere between Ayr and St Lawrence this evening, and potentially extending further northwest to Cardwell and further inland to locations such as Charters Towers, Pentland and Mount Coolon on overnight and Tuesday.

DESTRUCTIVE WINDS with gusts over 125 km/h may develop about the exposed coast and islands between Cape Upstart and Mackay during the remainder of the afternoon and evening. These DESTRUCTIVE WINDS may extend further northwest along the coast to Townsville overnight and during Tuesday and to adjacent inland areas, including Collinsville, during the day on Tuesday.

The VERY DESTRUCTIVE CORE of tropical cyclone Debbie is forecast to cross the coast between Ayr and Cape Hillsborough north of Mackay on Tuesday morning with wind gusts potentially to 260 km/h near the centre of the system.

Residents between Cape Upstart and St Lawrence are specifically warned of the dangerous storm tide as the cyclone crosses the coast on Tuesday morning. The sea is likely to rise steadily up to a level well above the normal tide, with damaging waves and flooding of some low-lying areas close to the shoreline as the cyclone approaches the coast on Tuesday. Large waves may also develop along the beachfront. People living in areas likely to be affected by this flooding should take measures to protect their property as much as possible and be prepared to follow instructions regarding evacuation of the area if advised to do so by the authorities.

Areas of heavy rain with the potential to cause severe flash flooding have developed around the central coast and Whitsundays and are expected to spread to other parts of the northern and central Queensland coast and adjacent inland areas tonight and continue through Tuesday. Widespread daily rainfall totals of 150 to 250 mm, with isolated event totals of 500 mm, are also likely to lead to major river flooding over a broad area next week, and a Flood Watch is current for coastal catchments between Rollingstone and Gladstone, extending inland to the Upper Flinders, Thomson and Barcoo catchments.


Dvorak Intensity:T5.0/5.0/D1.0/24 HRS

Forecast and Intensity
===============
12 HRS 20.0S 148.9E - 95 knots (CAT 4) east of Bowen
24 HRS 20.4S 147.5E - 55 knots (CAT 3) Overland Queensland west of Collinsville
48 HRS 21.9S 145.5E - 30 knots (Tropical Low)
72 HRS 23.9S 148.4E - 25 knots (Tropical Low)

Additional Information
=================
Tropical cyclone Debbie has shown rapid development through today. Deep convection rapidly developed around the system center this morning, with a clear eye developing during the day. The latest Dvorak analysis was therefore based on an eye pattern in IR, with a LG surround and OW eye, with +0.5 for eye adjustment DT of 5.5. MET and PT are 5.0. FT was based on DT but constrained to 5.0 due to Dvorak rules. SATCON has jumped dramatically during the day to about 90 knots. ADT from both agencies are around 5.5. Forecast system to become category 4 in the next 6 hours.

Confidence in the center position is rated as good based on a combination of radar imagery from Willis Island and Bowen radars and animated visible satellite imagery.

The mid-level ridge building to the south of the system has become the primary steering influence. However, animated WV imagery suggests that the shortwave trough moving north into SE Queensland may have a little more amplitude than the models are suggesting, leading to a slight weakening of the ridge and a slightly more southerly track which has been evident over the past 12 hours. There may also be some influence from internal processes within the cyclone core, where it remains somewhat disorganized. Overall, the system is most likely to remain on a general west southwest track for the next 24 hours up to landfall on the Queensland coast. There is still reasonably high confidence in this track, although there is more uncertainty on the southern side.

The system remains located in an area of weak vertical wind shear over sea surface temperatures of 29 to 30 degrees Celsius. Conditions will remain favorable for development right up until landfall, and this has been reflected in an intensity forecast at a standard rate following the recent period of rapid intensification.

Tropical cyclone Debbie is expected to continue moving west southwest towards the north Queensland coast while potentially developing into a severe tropical cyclone during today. Tropical cyclone Debbie is forecast to make landfall between Rollingstone and Proserpine on Tuesday morning.

GALES are now occurring about the Whitsunday Islands, and are expected to extend to the exposed coast and islands elsewhere between Ayr and Mackay this morning. GALES could extend to remaining coastal and adjacent inland areas between Lucinda and St Lawrence later today before potentially extending further north to coastal areas between Innisfail and Lucinda on Tuesday.

DESTRUCTIVE WINDS with gusts over 125 km/h may develop about the exposed coast and islands between Ayr and Mackay later this morning. These DESTRUCTIVE WINDS may then gradually extend further north to Lucinda during today and overnight into Tuesday.

The VERY DESTRUCTIVE CORE of tropical cyclone Debbie is forecast to cross the coast between Rollingstone and Proserpine on Tuesday morning with wind gusts potentially to 230 km/h near the centre.

DESTRUCTIVE WINDS and GALES could extend inland to Charters Towers, Mount Coolon, and Pentland later on Tuesday as the weakening cyclone moves inland.

Abnormally high tides are expected to occur south of Proserpine on the high tides today.

Residents between Lucinda and Mackay are specifically warned of the dangerous storm tide as the cyclone crosses the coast on Tuesday morning. The sea is likely to rise steadily up to a level well above the normal tide, with damaging waves and flooding of some low-lying areas close to the shoreline as the cyclone approaches the coast on Tuesday. Large waves may also develop along the beachfront. People living in areas likely to be affected by this flooding should take measures to protect their property as much as possible and be prepared to follow instructions regarding evacuation of the area if advised to do so by the authorities.

Areas of heavy rain with the potential to cause severe flash flooding are expected to develop about parts of the northern and central Queensland coast and adjacent inland areas later today and continue through Tuesday. Widespread daily rainfall totals of 200 mm, with isolated falls of 400 mm, are also likely to lead to major river flooding over a broad area next week, and a Flood Watch is current for coastal catchments between Cardwell and Gladstone, extending inland to the eastern Gulf River catchments.

Dvorak Intensity: T3.5/4.0/S0.0/24 HRS

Forecast and Intensity
===============
12 HRS 19.1S 149.5E - 70 knots (CAT 3)
24 HRS 19.5S 148.1E - 90 knots (CAT 4)
48 HRS 20.3S 145.0E - 30 knots (Tropical Low)
72 HRS 22.1S 144.5E - 30 knots (Tropical Low)

Additional Information
=================
Tropical cyclone Debbie has shown little signs of development on satellite imagery over the last 24 hours. Deep convective clouds with low cloud top temperatures continue to wrap around the system center. The latest Dvorak analysis was therefore based on a curved band pattern with a 0.7 degree wrap and an additional 0.5 for white band, which yielded a DT of 3.5. MET and PAT were both 3.5. FT was based on MET as the DT was not completely clear. CI maintained at 4.0 as per the Dvorak rules. SATCON evidence suggests a system intensity of 62 knots [1-minute mean], which when converted to a 10-minute mean roughly matches the currently analysed intensity inferred from Dvorak.

Confidence in the center position is rated as good based on a combination of radar imagery from Willis Island and Bowen radars and animated infrared satellite imagery.

The mid-level ridge building to the south of the system has become the dominant steering influence, and this will maintain the system on a west southwest track until landfall on the Queensland coast, which is currently expected during Tuesday morning. There is high confidence in this track given the simple environment and excellent consistency among deterministic and ensemble numerical weather prediction models.

The system remains located in an area of weak vertical wind shear over sea surface temperatures of 29-30C. Conditions will remain favorable for development right up until landfall, and this has been reflected in an intensity forecast at above the standard rate. This is above most objective guidance, with the ECMWF deterministic model being an exception. The forecast allows for a period of rapid intensification to occur before landfall in the favorable environment, which recent SHIPS guidance suggests is a possibility. However, CIMSS satellite winds and animated water vapor satellite imagery indicate that the outflow channel to the north of the system has weakened over the last 12 hours and therefore it is possible that the window for any rapid intensification may be diminishing.

Quoting 141. Skyepony:

Here is GEOS-5 for the possible storm trying to pull together over the weekend. Has Bahamas missing the worst as it curves quickly out in the Atlantic.


Weebly site is atleast something to link to or place to put self updating stuff. Posted there today. Just started trying to delve deeper into a way to do that on disqus. There is another one, don't think it's published. It's like a start of an indoors pursuits sort of space. My basic lotion recipe is in there & how to make trumpet valve oil... I'll link it in entry here before we go.

Harvested peppers lastnight. Good year for cauliflower, looks like big heads coming.

Took a cute pic of moo yesterday. They hung out in the back, out of the 0.46" rain. She's starting to show..

George~ Feel Better!



Pretty rotten saturday. Better sunday.. started catching up around the house, transplanted tomatoes to red solo cups. Saturday was hot and humid (upper 70s) then backdoor cold front came thru and today stayed in the upper 40s and I restarted the woodstove. Still need to get out to garden but work and house responsibilities intervene.

Tropical cyclone Debbie is starting to adopt a west-southwest track towards the north Queensland coast and is currently forecast to intensify into a category 3 system this evening. Tropical cyclone Debbie is likely to intensify further prior to making landfall between Lucinda and the area north of Mackay on Tuesday morning.

GALES are expected to develop about the exposed coast and islands between Ayr and Mackay during this afternoon or evening, and could extend further south to St Lawrence tonight. GALES could extend further north to coastal areas between Cairns and Ayr on Monday or during Tuesday morning, as well as further inland to Charters Towers and Mount Coolon.

DESTRUCTIVE WINDS with gusts over 125 km/h may develop about the exposed coast and islands between Ayr and Mackay as early as Monday morning, before extending further north to Lucinda by the evening.

The VERY DESTRUCTIVE CORE of Tropical Cyclone Debbie is currently expected to cross the coast between Townsville and Proserpine on Tuesday morning, most likely as a CATEGORY 4 tropical cyclone, with wind gusts up to 260 km/h near the center.

Abnormally high tides are expected to occur between at least Lucinda and Mackay as the cyclone approaches the coast. Large waves may also develop along the beachfront. People living in areas likely to be affected by this flooding should take measures to protect their property as much as possible and be prepared to follow instructions regarding evacuation of the area if advised to do so by the authorities.

Areas of heavy rain with the potential to cause severe flash flooding are expected to develop about parts of the northern and central Queensland coast and adjacent inland areas late on Sunday and continue through Monday and Tuesday. Major river flooding may also develop over a broad area next week and a Flood Watch is current for coastal catchments between Cairns and Gladstone, extending inland to the eastern Gulf River catchments.

48 HRS 19.6S 147.4E - 100 knots (CAT 4) Overland Queensland near Ayr
72 HRS 20.7S 144.2E - 30 knots (Tropical Low) Overland Queensland

Additional Information
=================
Tropical cyclone Debbie has continued to show improved signs of development on satellite imagery over the last 24 hours. The latest Dvorak intensity analysis was based on a curved band pattern with a 0.7 degree wrap, giving a DT of 3.5. MET is 4.0 and PAT 3.5. FT was based on DT and PT. This analysis is supported by observations from Marion Reef and Lihou Reef and a recent ASCAT pass over the system; the ASCAT pass was also useful for confirming wind radii. SATCON estimates have been suggested a system with an intensity of 65 knots [1-minute mean], which roughly matches the analyzed intensity when converted to a 10-minute mean.

Confidence in the centre position is rated as good based on a combination of imagery from Willis Island radar, animated visible satellite imagery and peripheral surface observations.

Steering has been weak for the past 12 to 18 hours, however CIMSS satellite winds suggest a mid-level ridge building to the south of the system as forecast. This will steer the system to the west-southwest for the next several days until landfall on the Queensland coast, which is currently expected during Tuesday morning, or at earliest overnight Monday. Deterministic numerical weather prediction models all follow this scenario with landfalls occurring broadly between Lucinda and Mackay along the Queensland east coast.

The system remains located in an area of weak vertical wind shear over sea surface temperatures of 29-30C. Upper level outflow is excellent in all quadrants. Conditions will remain favorable for development right up until landfall, and this has been reflected in an intensity forecast at slightly above the standard rate. This is generally on the high end of the objective guidance spectrum, although HWRF and recent SHIPS guidance are similar. Recent SSMIS microwave pass combined with SHIPS RI guidance suggest a period of rapid intensification is possible in the next 24 hours. Given this evidence, the intensity may be higher than forecast approaching landfall.

Debbie appears to be a big issue for Queensland Australia in the coming days. Forecast to intensify to at least Cat 4 before landfall.

Tropical Cyclone Warning Center Brisbane
Tropical Cyclone Advice #5
Storm Warning
TROPICAL CYCLONE DEBBIE, CATEGORY ONE (24U)
10:58 AM EST March 25 2017
============================

At 10:00 AM EST, Tropical Cyclone Debbie, Category One (992 hPa) located at 17.4S 151.9E or 650 km east of Cairns and 580 km east northeast of Townsville has 10 minute sustained winds of 35 knots with gusts of 50 knots. The cyclone is reported as moving southwest at 5 knots.

The tropical low over the central Coral Sea has recently developed into Tropical Cyclone Debbie. The system has been moving slowly southwards overnight, but has recently shown signs of shifting onto a west southwest track. This general west southwesterly motion is expected to continue for the next few days, bringing the cyclone towards the north Queensland coast. Conditions are expected to favor the continued intensification of the cyclone as it approaches the coast over the weekend and into early next week.

GALES are not expected to develop about the Queensland east coast today, however they could develop about the coast and islands between Cape Tribulation and St Lawrence, including the Whitsunday Islands, during Sunday.

Based on the current forecast track, abnormally high tides are expected to occur between at least Lucinda and Mackay as the cyclone approaches the coast. Large waves may also develop along the beachfront.

Areas of heavy rain are expected to develop about parts of the northern and central Queensland coast and adjacent inland areas into Sunday. A Flood Watch is current for coastal catchments between Cooktown and Mackay, extending inland to the eastern Gulf River catchments.

Dvorak Intensity: T3.0/3.0/D1.0/24 HRS

Forecast and Intensity
===============
12 HRS 17.7S 151.7E - 45 knots (CAT 1)
24 HRS 18.0S 151.1E - 60 knots (CAT 2)
48 HRS 18.9S 149.5E - 80 knots (CAT 3) East of Townsville
72 HRS 19.5S 146.8E - 85 knots (CAT 3) Overland Queensland south of Townsville

Additional Information
=================
The tropical low has recently developed into Tropical Cyclone Debbie. The system is associated with an impressive, very large circulation, but until recently has shown little development near the center. However, it continues to become slowly organized, particularly near the center, where convection is finally becoming more sustained. The latest Dvorak analysis was based on a curved band pattern with a 0.6 degree wrap, giving a DT of 3.0. MET and PAT were both 3.0. This analysis was supported by observations of sustained gales from Marion Reef.

Confidence in the location of the system is considered good based on animated visible imagery, Willis Island radar and surface observations from Lihou Reef. Pressure observations have declined significantly at Lihou Reef over the last 24 hour with an mean sea level pressure observation of 991.8hPa at 1800 UTC March 24th.

Until recently, the system was being steered to the southeast by the combination of a mid level ridge to the east, and an upper level trough moving eastwards across the Tasman Sea. In the last few hours, the expected shift onto a west southwesterly track has been evident, as the upper trough moves further east, and a new mid level ridge builds to the south of the system. The latter is expected to remain the dominant steering mechanism over the next few days, keeping the cyclone on a west southwesterly track and taking the cyclone onto the Queensland coast. Given such a large circulation, it can be expected that the system will have some effect back onto the surrounding steering systems --this is part of the reason for the drift to more southerly tracks recently. All model guidance is in agreement with this scenario, although there remain some differences in forward speed among the guidance, which affects not only the time of impact, but also the length of time available for the system to intensify over the water. It should also be noted that a significant proportion of EC Ensemble tracks remain to the north of the current cluster of deterministic forecasts, taking the system onto the coast north of Cardwell.

The system is located in an area of weak vertical wind shear over sea surface temperatures of 29-30C. Upper level outflow is excellent in all quadrants. Overall, the environment will remain supportive of intensification right up to landfall on the Queensland coast. The intensity forecast is based on slightly more than a standard rate of intensification; given the favorable environment it is likely that there will be periods of more rapid intensification.

Looked over the Weebly site; that looks nice for you to use. I think you can do a lot with that.

Found the copy of the letter about the passionfruit, I have a total of seven of them; you said 3" pots? Gonna try to get that done this weekend. Also, three butternut squash that found their way onto my doorstep- and Sorry the Eggplant. Didja see'm on the Disqus side? he's doing great along with the longevity spinach. Gotta few peppers and those everglades toms to get outside this weekend, too.

Hoping Two-PennyMoo is doing good, I'm thinking of her a lot it seems.
