Tropical Weather Outlook
NWS National Hurricane Center Miami FL
200 PM EDT Wed Aug 16 2017

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

The National Hurricane Center is issuing advisories on Hurricane
Gert, located a few hundred miles north of Bermuda.

A low pressure system located about 800 miles east of the Lesser
Antilles has become a little better defined since yesterday, but
most of the associated shower and thunderstorm activity is
displaced to the west of the center of circulation. Upper-level
winds are forecast to become more conducive for development during
the next day or so while the low moves westward at 15 to 20 mph
across the tropical Atlantic Ocean, crossing into the Caribbean Sea
on Friday. An Air Force Reserve reconnaissance aircraft is
scheduled to investigate this system on Thursday, if necessary, and
interests in the Lesser Antilles should monitor the progress of the
disturbance.
* Formation chance through 48 hours...medium...40 percent.
* Formation chance through 5 days...medium...50 percent.

A second area of low pressure is located about 800 miles west
of the Cabo Verde Islands, and its associated shower and
thunderstorm activity remains disorganized. Gradual development of
this system is possible during the next few days while it moves
west-northwestward at 15 to 20 mph, but upper-level winds are
expected to become less conducive for tropical cyclone formation
when the disturbance moves north of the Leeward Islands this
weekend.
* Formation chance through 48 hours...medium...40 percent.
* Formation chance through 5 days...medium...50 percent.

A tropical wave near the west coast of Africa is producing a
large area of disorganized showers and thunderstorms.
Environmental conditions appear conducive for gradual development of
this wave while it moves westward to west-northwestward at about 15
mph during the next several days.
* Formation chance through 48 hours...low...near 0 percent.
* Formation chance through 5 days...medium...40 percent.

PRESENT MOVEMENT...NE OR 55 DEGREES AT 31 MPH...50 KM/H
MINIMUM CENTRAL PRESSURE...970 MB...28.65 INCHES


WATCHES AND WARNINGS
--------------------
There are no coastal watches or warnings in effect.


DISCUSSION AND 48-HOUR OUTLOOK
------------------------------
At 500 PM AST (2100 UTC), the center of Hurricane Gert was located
near latitude 38.7 North, longitude 62.4 West.  Gert is moving
quickly toward the northeast near 31 mph (50 km/h).  An even faster
motion toward the east-northeast is expected through Thursday,
followed by some deceleration and a turn toward the northeast
Thursday night and Friday.

Maximum sustained winds have increased to near 100 mph (155 km/h)
with higher gusts.  Little change in strength is expected through
tonight, but weakening is forecast to begin on Thursday.  Gert
should become an extratropical low by early Friday.

Hurricane-force winds extend outward up to 35 miles (55 km) from the
center, and tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 140
miles (220 km).

The estimated minimum central pressure is 970 mb (28.65 inches).


HAZARDS AFFECTING LAND
----------------------
SURF:  Swells generated by Gert will spread northward along the
east coast of the United States from Virginia northward to
New England and Atlantic Canada during the next day or two.
Swells are also expected to continue to affect Bermuda through
tonight.  These swells are likely to cause life-threatening surf and
rip current conditions.  Please consult products from your local
weather forecast office.

Hurricane Gert Discussion Number  16
NWS National Hurricane Center Miami FL       AL082017
500 PM AST Wed Aug 16 2017

Cloud tops with temperatures colder than -65 deg C have wrapped
almost entirely around Gert's center, although eye temperatures
have been fluctuating all day.  Dvorak intensity estimates vary
widely, from T4.5 from TAFB to around T5.5 from the UW-CIMSS ADT,
and since a warm eye has been unable to persist for an extended
period of time, the initial intensity is raised conservatively to
85 kt.  This makes Gert the first category 2 hurricane of the
season.  The window of opportunity for additional strengthening
appears to be closing.  Gert will be moving over the colder waters
north of the Gulf Stream in about 12-18 hours, and southwesterly
shear will be increasing to well over 30 kt in about 12 hours.
Therefore, a fast weakening trend is forecast to begin on Thursday,
with Gert becoming a tropical storm by 36 hours.  The FSU
phase-space diagrams indicate that Gert should be extratropical
just after 36 hours, and the GFS, ECMWF, and UKMET all have the
cyclone being absorbed by a larger extratropical low over the north
Atlantic by day 4.

Acceleration continues with the initial motion now 055/27 kt.  With
Gert firmly embedded within the mid-latitude westerlies, the
hurricane's forward speed should increase for the next 24 hours,
followed by some deceleration as the cyclone begins to interact
with a large cut-off low moving east of Atlantic Canada.  Most of
the track guidance is a little faster on this cycle, although the
ECMWF is significantly slower.  The new NHC forecast is nudged a
little faster from 12-48 hours, but not too fast given the latest
ECMWF solution.  The post-tropical portion of the track, intensity,
and wind radii forecasts incorporate guidance from NOAA's Ocean
Prediction Center.

Swells from Gert are affecting portions of the mid-Atlantic coast of
the United States, and are expected to spread northward to New
England and Atlantic Canada during the next day or two.  These
swells are likely to produce dangerous surf and rip current
conditions. Please consult products from your local weather forecast
office for more information.
