Re: In case you haven't noticed - Baja cruisers

ok baja cruisers--we are keeping these two for ourselves---not that we really wanted to --- so we will see what this phenomenon delivers.....ready or not, 1 2 3


rodl--we under both.. should have winds to about 35 kts--per normal.. should have some wet stuff from sky-- tis the season--- all will be essentially green. is already, but this is a gorgeous place, especially after rain.

btw--rain here is warm. is pleasant and cools the air--much less humid just after rain, and clouds are lovely--keep the temps to 85. without the clouds we get 95.

Re: In case you haven't noticed - Baja cruisers

Manuel has shifted westward.

"IT SHOULD BE NOTED THAT THERE IS SOME GUIDANCE THAT SUGGESTS THAT MANUEL COULD BE NEAR HURRICANE STRENGTH BY THE TIME IT MAKES LANDFALL."

So, the unknown is what the system does after landfall, which appears to a shallow one at that.

TROPICAL STORM MANUEL DISCUSSION NUMBER 4
NWS NATIONAL HURRICANE CENTER MIAMI FL EP132013
200 AM PDT SAT SEP 14 2013

GEOSTATIONARY SATELLITE AND MICROWAVE IMAGES INDICATE THAT MANUEL IS
ORGANIZING. THE CLOUD PATTERN CONSISTS OF A SMALL CENTRAL DENSE
OVERCAST AND A LARGE CURVED BAND TO THE SOUTH AND EAST OF THE
CENTER. ALTHOUGH MANUEL APPEARS A LITTLE STRONGER THAN IT WAS
EARLIER...ALL OF THE SATELLITE INTENSITY ESTIMATES ARE UNCHANGED...
SO THE INITIAL WIND SPEED IS MAINTAINED AT 40 KT.

MANUEL HAS BEEN NEARLY STATIONARY DURING THE LAST SEVERAL HOURS.
ALTHOUGH A FAIR AMOUNT OF SPREAD EXISTS IN THE MODELS...THE OVERALL
THEME IS THAT MANUEL...AND THE LARGE-SCALE GYRE THAT IT IS EMBEDDED
WITHIN...WILL BEGIN MOVING NORTH-NORTHWESTWARD LATER TODAY. THAT
GENERAL MOTION IS EXPECTED TO PERSIST UNTIL THE STORM MAKES
LANDFALL IN ABOUT 36 HOURS. OVERALL...THE GUIDANCE HAS SHIFTED A
LITTLE TO THE WEST THIS CYCLE...AND THE NHC FORECAST HAS BEEN
NUDGED IN THAT DIRECTION.

STRENGTHENING APPEARS LIKELY UNTIL MANUEL MAKES LANDFALL DUE TO
GENERALLY FAVORABLE ENVIRONMENTAL CONDITIONS AND THE CURRENT
STRUCTURE OF THE CYCLONE. THE NHC INTENSITY FORECAST IS UNCHANGED
FROM THE PREVIOUS ONE...AND IS A LITTLE HIGHER THAN THE ICON
CONSENSUS MODEL AND LIES CLOSE TO THE LGEM GUIDANCE. IT SHOULD BE
NOTED THAT THERE IS SOME GUIDANCE THAT SUGGESTS THAT MANUEL COULD
BE NEAR HURRICANE STRENGTH BY THE TIME IT MAKES LANDFALL.

IN ADDITION TO THE WIND THREAT...THE MOIST FLOW RESULTING FROM THE
COMBINATION OF MANUEL AND TROPICAL STORM INGRID IN THE BAY OF
CAMPECHE WILL PRODUCE TORRENTIAL RAINS AND LIFE-THREATENING
FLOODING OVER EASTERN MEXICO. THIS WILL REMAIN A SIGNIFICANT
HAZARD OVER THE NEXT COUPLE OF DAYS.

FORECAST POSITIONS AND MAX WINDS

INIT 14/0900Z 15.3N 102.4W 40 KT 45 MPH
12H 14/1800Z 16.0N 102.6W 45 KT 50 MPH
24H 15/0600Z 17.1N 103.0W 50 KT 60 MPH
36H 15/1800Z 18.3N 103.6W 55 KT 65 MPH...NEAR THE COAST
48H 16/0600Z 19.3N 104.5W 30 KT 35 MPH...INLAND
72H 17/0600Z...DISSIPATED

$$
FORECASTER CANGIALOSI





my coordinates-----oh yes--my coordinates--lol------rodlmao--- zees spot
Latitude:19.19524
Longitude:-104.68211

kinda right under the double bubble...interesting---max sustained winds should be 35 kts with gusting--shouldnt kill us--





@wrong---they promised us a swift demise (of the storm named manuel)..lol we will see what these two together do to mexico--if anything.

mainland mexico keeps baja safe from manuel...

THE CYCLONE SHOULD BECOME A REMNANT LOW LATE ON SUNDAY OR EARLY MONDAY.

Re: In case you haven't noticed - Baja cruisers

thankyou , ann. i already have my furycame music picked for the duration---it will be an interesting experience, as both storms are dying and might be that neither one poses a threat--warnings are to manzanillo, but that is only 20 miles south of us..manuel is spozed to be dying as he moves along our coast, but he is only a few miles inland---is 5-10 miles inland enough to dissipate a furycame, should that be what he becomes--- i know it could well dead the ts---we see this all the time, as ts formations and wannabes continue here this season--monsoonal trough is here, only a few miles off shore, and parallels the sw coast of mexico a few miles before splitting off to south pacific.
we are ready for winds to 50 kts--will have to modify only slightly if manuel is stronger than predicted.
shouldnt be too bad--we have weather all summer and i been thru worse. at least we arent sending another to golfo de california....yet

awesome---manuel is going to autlan--so we wont have anything over 35 kts unless a gust or two...lol---keep up the good work, nature!!!
mebbe it is my fans i have on high aimed at the storm system.....


i will take every 10 miles they give me and celebrate....

Re: In case you haven't noticed - Baja cruisers

Just the moisture and low pressure headed up here I believe; nothing but a little check of how well my leak repairs have been going!

Re: In case you haven't noticed - Baja cruisers

storm 2k had discussed it growing again once it hits water, at banderas bay-- could be a possibility, so prep for worse and hope fro leak testing!!! heck for us it was a mating of twins that was cancelled, whew--so--never know until it gets there.

FOR THE EASTERN NORTH PACIFIC...EAST OF 140 DEGREES WEST LONGITUDE..

A BROAD AREA OF LOW PRESSURE...ASSOCIATED WITH THE REMNANTS OF
MANUEL...IS PRODUCING A LARGE AREA OF CLOUDINESS AND THUNDERSTORMS
ALONG THE WEST-CENTRAL COAST OF MEXICO AND ADJACENT WATERS. THERE
ARE CURRENTLY NO SIGNS OF A WELL-DEFINED SURFACE CIRCULATION...
HOWEVER ENVIRONMENTAL CONDITIONS APPEAR MARGINALLY CONDUCIVE FOR
SOME REDEVELOPMENT OF THIS SYSTEM. THIS DISTURBANCE IS FORECAST
TO MOVE SLOWLY NORTHWESTWARD AT ABOUT 5 MPH...AND BECOME NEARLY
STATIONARY CLOSE TO THE SOUTHERN TIP OF THE BAJA CALIFORNIA
PENINSULA IN A COUPLE OF DAYS. THIS SYSTEM HAS A MEDIUM
CHANCE...30 PERCENT...OF BECOMING A TROPICAL CYCLONE DURING THE
NEXT 48 HOURS...AND A MEDIUM CHANCE...30 PERCENT...OF BECOMING A
TROPICAL CYCLONE DURING THE NEXT 5 DAYS.

Re: In case you haven't noticed - Baja cruisers

It's got it basically crossing right over La Paz as a depression; I think ~45 knot max winds or something to that extent but it's still a few days out.

The track, so far, has us in Puerto Escondido just catching some rain. Right now's slotted to shoot right through Bahia La Paz.

Oh well. In other news I had bird **** all over my bowsprit planks today so it looks like everything will get washed soon.

I'm sure we are all pleased to hear the rain will be doing a job to clean your bowsprit but let us spare a thought for the friendly peoples of Mexico who welcome thousands of visiting cruisers to their shores every year...millions are suffering, some drowning, from flash flooding at this very moment!
