Tropical Weather Outlook

200 PM EDT Tue Aug 9 2022

For the North Atlantic...Caribbean Sea and the Gulf of Mexico:

Eastern Tropical Atlantic: 
Shower and thunderstorm activity remains disorganized associated 
with a tropical wave located a few hundred miles southwest of 
the Cabo Verde Islands. While some gradual development of this 
system is possible over the next several days, environmental 
conditions are forecast to become less favorable by this weekend. 
This system is expected to move westward to west-northwestward at 15 
to 20 mph across the tropical Atlantic during the next several days.
* Formation chance through 48 hours...low...20 percent.
* Formation chance through 5 days...low...30 percent.

For the eastern North Pacific...east of 140 degrees west longitude:

Active Systems:
The National Hurricane Center is issuing advisories on Hurricane 
Howard, located several hundred miles west of the southern tip of 
the Baja California peninsula.

Offshore of Southwestern Mexico:
A broad trough of low pressure located several hundred miles south 
of the coasts of southern and southwestern Mexico is producing a 
disorganized area of showers and a few thunderstorms. Environmental 
conditions appear conducive for gradual development of this system, 
and a tropical depression is likely to form by this weekend while 
it moves west-northwestward to northwestward, well offshore of the 
coast of Mexico.
* Formation chance through 48 hours...low...30 percent.
* Formation chance through 5 days...high...70 percent.

DISCUSSION AND OUTLOOK
----------------------
At 200 PM PDT (2100 UTC), the center of Hurricane Howard was located
near latitude 22.5 North, longitude 117.7 West.  Howard is moving
toward the west-northwest near 10 mph (17 km/h), and this general
motion at a slightly slower forward speed is expected over the next
few days.
 
Maximum sustained winds have decreased to near 75 mph (120 km/h) 
with higher gusts.  Steady weakening is forecast during the next 
couple of days.  Howard is forecast to weaken to a tropical storm 
tonight, and become a remnant low by Thursday.
 
Hurricane-force winds extend outward up to 15 miles (30 km) from the
center and tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 60 miles
(95 km).
 
The estimated minimum central pressure is 989 mb (29.21 inches).

Hurricane Howard Discussion Number  14

200 PM PDT Tue Aug 09 2022
 
Deep convection associated with Howard has decreased in intensity 
and become less organized today while the cyclone moves over cooler 
waters.  Dvorak T-numbers from both TAFB and SAB have been lowered 
from earlier today, and the objective Dvorak intensity estimate 
from UW-CIMSS is below hurricane strength.  Based on these values, 
the advisory intensity is reduced to 65 kt.

Although the vertical wind shear is not forecast to increase, Howard 
will continue to pass over cooler ocean waters during the next 
couple of days.  Moreover, model analyses and the presence of a 
field of stratocumulus clouds just to the west of the cyclone 
indicate that the system should soon be encountering a more stable 
air mass.  Therefore, continued steady weakening is forecast, and 
the official intensity forecast is near or slightly above the model 
consensus.  Howard should make the transition into a post tropical 
cyclone in 48 hours, or less.

Howard remains on a west-northwestward track, and continues moving 
at around 300/9 kt.  The track forecast philosophy is essentially 
unchanged from the previous few advisories.  A mid-level ridge 
extending westward from a high pressure system over the southwestern 
United States should keep the system on a west-northwestward course 
for the next day or two.  Late in the forecast period, weak 
post-tropical Howard should turn westward following the near-surface 
winds.  The NHC track forecast is basically an update of the 
previous one.
