HURRICANE CARLOS DISCUSSION NUMBER 26

WIKI-HURRICANES FORECAST CENTER

0400PM CDT TUE JUN 16 2015

Carlos continues to pack surprises as recon found out earlier today. It would appear that Carlos found a local optimum in the environment and took advantage while it could. In the past few hours an eye was briefly visible on visible satellite imagery. Currently the convection appears to be receding significantly, giving the storm a much smaller appearance similar to yesterday, but the center of the system is still sustaining convective activity. Recent microwave passes have not managed to resolve Carlos' small core, but reconnaisance from a few hours ago found winds supportive of a surprising initial intensity of 80 knots.

Carlos is located in a pocket of weak shear as it passes under an upper level anticyclone. This should, and has already, allowed the storm to strengthen significantly. Over the next 24 hours or so, conditions do not look very bad for this storm. Further intensification today and into tomorrow morning is likely. Beyond a day or so though, Carlos will move into a region of much drier air and shear will begin to increase once again and should induce steady weakening as the storm turns more northerly past Cabo Corrientes.

The track forecast for Carlos remains effectively the same as the previous advisory. Slight adjustments for forward motion have been made, keeping Carlos a bit slower than previously anticipated per a general model consensus. Carlos should track generally northwest on the southwestern periphery of a subtropical ridge and in about two days should curve slightly more northward and slow down as a result of Tropical Storm Bill in the Atlantic causing a weakness in the ridge.
