Tropical Weather Outlook
NWS National Hurricane Center Miami FL
800 AM EDT Thu Jul 12 2018

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

The National Hurricane Center is issuing advisories on recently
downgraded Tropical Storm Chris, located about 400 miles southwest
of Cape Race, Newfoundland.

1. An area of disorganized showers and thunderstorms associated with
the remnants of Beryl is located about midway between the Bahamas
and Bermuda. Little or no development is expected through Friday
while the system moves northeastward. However, environmental
conditions could become a little more favorable over the weekend
when the disturbance will be moving northward over the warm waters
of the western Atlantic and interacting with a strong upper-level
trough.
* Formation chance through 48 hours…low…10 percent.
* Formation chance through 5 days…medium…50 percent.

CHRIS FORECAST TO BECOME POST-TROPICAL LATER TODAY

Tropical Storm Chris Discussion Number 23
NWS National Hurricane Center Miami FL AL032018
500 AM AST Thu Jul 12 2018

Deep convection has decreased considerable, and the cloud pattern is
taking the typical shape of cyclones during extratropical transition
with the rain shield expanding toward the northwest quadrant. Only a
small area of thunderstorms remain near the center. Dvorak numbers
from TAFB and SAB are decreasing, and assuming that the cyclone has
weakened since the last ASCAT pass several hours ago, the initial
intensity is set at 60 kt in this advisory. Chris will be moving
over much colder waters, and with the increase in shear, the cyclone
is forecast to acquire extratropical characteristics as it moves
very near the extreme southern portion of Newfoundland later today.
After that time, the post-tropical cyclone should continue toward
the northeast and become absorbed by a larger cyclone in about 3 or
4 days.

Chris is now moving toward the northeast or 045 degrees at 30 kt.
The cyclone is already embedded within the fast mid-latitude
westerlies, and this flow should continue to steer Chris on this
general track until it becomes absorbed. Track models are in
excellent agreement in both direction and speed, increasing
the confidence in the NHC forecast.

Description:
The Global Infrared Satellite image shows clouds by their temperature. Red and blue areas indicate cold (high) cloud tops. Infrared (IR) radiation is electromagnetic radiation whose wavelength is longer than that of visible light, but shorter than that of terahertz radiation and microwaves. Weather satellites equipped with scanning radiometers produce thermal or infrared images which can then enable a trained analyst to determine cloud heights and types, to calculate land and surface water temperatures, and to locate ocean surface features.
