Tropical Storm Earl Discussion Number 2
NWS National Hurricane Center Miami FL AL062022
500 AM AST Sat Sep 03 2022

Satellite imagery and radar data from Guadeloupe show that Earl
remains a sheared tropical cyclone, with the low-level center
located to the west of the main convective mass. Various satellite
intensity estimates are in the 25-45 kt range and have changed
little since the last advisory. Based on this, the initial
intensity remains 35 kt. A NOAA Hurricane Hunter aircraft will
investigate Earl starting near 1000 UTC.

The initial motion is 285/11. The track guidance remains in good
agreement that Earl should move west-northwestward and
northwestward with a decrease in forward speed for the next couple
of days as it is steered by the subtropical ridge. There is little
change in this part of the forecast track from the previous
advisory. After that time, a slower motion toward the north and
eventually north-northeast is expected as a mid- to upper-level
trough develops over the Atlantic to the west and north of Earl.
The guidance envelope for the latter part of the forecast track has
shifted eastward, and while the new forecast track is also nudged
eastward it is west of the consensus models from 60-120 h.

Earl is feeling the effects of moderate westerly shear, and current
indications are this will continue for the next 48 h or so. Thus,
the intensity forecast calls for modest strengthening during this
time. The intensity forecast becomes more uncertain as Earl turns
northward. While some shear is likely to continue, the dynamical
models are in good agreement that the cyclone will strengthen,
possibly due to a favorable interaction to the aforementioned
upper-level trough. However, there is poor agreement between the
models in the details of this interaction. Given that, the
intensity forecast from 72-120 h will show a little more
strengthening than the previous forecast. However, the forecast
intensities are on the low side of the guidance envelope.

Tropical-storm-force winds are forecast to remain on the northern
and eastern side of the circulation, and as a result, are not
expected to move across the northern Leeward Islands, the Virgin
Islands, or Puerto Rico. However, any southward shift of Earl's
center would increase the risk of tropical-storm-force winds in
those areas.


KEY MESSAGES:

1. Tropical Storm Earl is forecast to pass near or just to the
north of the northern Leeward Islands, the Virgin Islands, and
Puerto Rico over the weekend. Gusty winds, especially in squalls,
area possible on those islands over the next day or two.

2. Heavy rainfall from Earl is expected to lead to limited flash,
urban, and small stream flooding impacts over the Leeward Islands,
U.S. and British Virgin Islands, and Puerto Rico this weekend.
Rapid rises on rivers are possible in Puerto Rico.

I believe that puts the swell in our window. Earl has a nice ring to it too. "Did you score some of the Earl swell?"

Tropical Storm Earl Discussion Number 4
NWS National Hurricane Center Miami FL AL062022
500 PM AST Sat Sep 03 2022

Earl has strengthened this afternoon. Satellite data indicate the
previously exposed low-level center of the cyclone has been drawn
underneath an area of deep convection, with cloud top temperatures
colder than -70C. An Air Force Hurricane Hunter aircraft that
recently investigated the storm reported max flight-level (925 mb)
winds of 56 kt. This would support surface winds between 40 and 45
kt using a standard reduction factor. Based on these data, the
cyclone's improved satellite structure, and falling surface
pressures throughout the day, the initial intensity of Earl is
raised to 45 kt for this advisory.

The cyclone has strengthened some today despite facing moderate
deep-layer southwesterly shear. The shear is forecast to persist or
even increase during the next couple of days, so some fluctuation in
intensity is possible if the deep convection gets stripped away and
the center becomes exposed again. But, sea-surface temperatures
greater than 29C should continue to support convective development,
and the overall trend in the latest intensity guidance favors at
least slow strengthening into early next week. Then, the models
suggest that favorable interaction with an upper-level trough over
the warm waters of the western Atlantic will promote additional
strengthening, along with a broadening of the wind field. The latest
NHC intensity forecast has been raised closer to the HCCA and IVCN
consensus aids, and it now brings Earl up to hurricane strength at
days 4-5.

The initial motion of Earl is west-northwestward, or 290/9 kt. The
general forecast track reasoning has not changed. Earl is expected
to slow down as it moves west-northwestward to northwestward over
the next couple of days. A weakness in the subtropical ridge should
allow the cyclone to gradually turn northward early next week, then
move northeastward as it becomes steered by a mid- to upper-level
trough over the western Atlantic. The official NHC forecast track is
very similar to the previous forecast and lies slightly to the left
of the HCCA and TVCA aids.

Tropical-storm-force winds are still forecast to remain on the
northern and eastern side of the circulation, and are not expected
to move across the northern Leeward Islands, the Virgin Islands, or
Puerto Rico. However, gusty winds in squalls are possible at these
locations through Sunday.


KEY MESSAGES:

1. Heavy rainfall from Earl is expected to lead to limited flash,
urban, and small stream flooding impacts over the Leeward Islands,
U.S. and British Virgin Islands, and Puerto Rico this weekend. Rapid
rises on rivers and mudslides in areas of steep terrain are possible
in Puerto Rico.

2. Earl is forecast to pass to the north of the the Virgin Islands
and Puerto Rico tonight and Sunday. Gusty winds, especially in
squalls, area possible on those islands through Sunday.

After 72 h, shear is expected to decrease, and
more robust intensification is possible thereafter, with the latest
intensity forecast now making Earl a major hurricane by 120 h, in
good agreement with the IVCN and HCCA consensus aids.

Surfline is suggesting something for around Sept 13-14. Perhaps more interesting, Surf-Forecast.com is predicting 1000 kilojoules at some Brevard beaches southward for Mon. 12.

There's got to be at least a 3' swell before Sept 13th with 2 storms churning out there Where are these waves going? Where are the generated waves breaking? Hatteras? Bermuda?

George Panton made me 3-4 boards pretty much exactly like that (only with his ever present "chine rails") around 1975. We always called the shape a "Swish" and they rode great!

    European and GFS models have Earl blowing up into a huge storm around Bermuda. That's far away and we're on the wrong side, but size has a quality of its own.
    Looks like Europe is having a great time

It's been flat for so long I think the bottom is flat too. Hopefully these waves will move some sand around.

< - not this morning! Pretty fun up near CFL's place until the tide drained out. Some head high sneaker surprise waves (of course I was too far inside, missed them all). Lotsa marine life, dolphins, turtles, snook? & tarpon rolling and I'm pretty sure I saw some grey suits too (they looked pretty small though)...

Solid sets coming in, lines are still long, some corners to be had. Maybe a bit bigger with some approaching head high at the peak. A bit too fast at this tide, but we are Florida, so a small change in tide might be the answer.

Strong storms are forecasted to blow thru Brevard Thursday afternoon. Maybe a glass off? Don't get hit by lightning of course

I finally had the opportunity to paddle out Thursday morning in Satbe. 3-4 feet and glassy. Mostly closing out.

Had a spot here in Satbe that was reeling rights all the way inside just before the wind got on it.

Gotta love swells when the originate near Bermuda! NE angle and long time between sets, i.e. easier paddle out. magicseaweed showing even better early next week.

Swells generated by Earl are building near Bermuda and are
expected to reach the U.S. East Coast tonight. These swells are
likely to cause life-threatening surf and rip current conditions
through the weekend. Please consult products from your local
weather office.

We never got swells as the storms were moving away. It's always been like someone pulled the plug as soon as the things got north of us, unless they reversed direction and that isn't happening with this one...or is it?

Larry, yes, popular shape back then. Do you think I'm regressing? anyway, took Mr. Mayo a photo and said, "Like this!". And he knocked it out of the park.

Earl day 3 - not as big or consistant as yesterday. STILL, when the tide started to go out, magic sandbar did provide, some nice outside sets! (before the wind got on it, as usual) &

Was waiting for 2 years for a multi-day swell like this. Now I'm out of the state. But happy for you that's able to catch this. Just goes to show how rare it gets.

Almost no close outs here. Per usual, some of the beaches were definitely handling this way better.

Size and period is looking like a downward trend on the 20 mile buoy now.

Peaked This morning. The wave models really nailed this swell.

Joaquin was better, but not by much. Joaquin was smaller but had much more punch. All things considered Earl is one for the record books.

Wow. I would have given Joaquin a much higher grade - 13 straight days of clean, glassy, well-overhead waves. Earl had 8 days of good waves, but only one that was really overhead (and I thought the smaller days were actually better as far as makeable long lines). Maybe the difference in our evals is the same as in real estate - location, location, location. Don't get me wrong, I had an absolutely great time with Earl and am hugely grateful (especially since it has been so long), but Joaquin was bombing perfection.

Totally agree with smaller days being the better ones, AND IT"S NOT JUST BECAUSE I"M OLD!!! Smaller days had shorter period. Our bars just don't seem to hold a longer period swell unless there's a good cross bump/swell peaking it up. My 2 cents. Oh, and this AM makes nine.

Garcia is measuring duration. I was comparing peak swell quality day. If you ask for my opinion, the first three or four days of this swell were pretty lackluster. I do remember repeated classic sessions from Joaquin. And Tom there is a spot that holds the long period North. You know where it is.

Got a few, but it wasn't anything close to yesterday. Up and down the beach the shoulders were hard to find today.
