We faced Phailin, Hudhud, Titli cyclones stubbornly in the recent years and have encountered cyclonic situation over a dozen of times in the past six to seven years,” recounted S. Ramamurthy, a fisherman in Sandhakuda. This is the third in a series of articles about hurricane structure and budgets. Model integration was performed using two-way interactive double nested domains at 27 and 9 km resolutions. The role of graupel is further established by deactivating its production, where the model cannot simulate the midlevel heating and intensification of the system. the associated rainfall is reduced by about 30% with the introduction of 10 cm of snow over the Tibetan region in the month On 28 September when the storm was most intense, the inflow layer appeared to extend no higher the 750 mb level. In this study, we address the problem of incorporating moist processes (parameterizing the subgrid scale and resolving the grid scale) at resolutions of 10 km and 3.3 km (triple nested) in predicting the track and intensity of tropical cyclones over the north Indian Ocean. “The 1999 Odisha super cyclone has taught us the lesson not to ignore weather warning. The categorical forecast skill also reveals that although the accuracy of the model is high for 2002, but the probability of detection of extreme events are higher for 1997. Kain-Fritsch (KF) shows a realistic simulation of track and intensity and therefore is considered for all the experiments at 10 km with four bulk microphysical (MP) schemes (hybrid experiments). A particular feature of the paper is the series of synoptic studies of the four waves which gave rise to named storms (Danny, Elena, Fabian, and Gloria) during the period. A new scheme has been developed which addresses two major deficiencies of the old scheme; the representation of the radial structure of winds and the asymmetry of the TC vortex. The super cyclone had a wind speed of more than 300 Kmph. The dynamic control is the part that determines the modulation of the convection by the environment. simulated intensity when compared with the simulation made without QuikSCAT winds in the initial The 1999 Orissa cyclone, also known as Cyclone 05B, and Paradip cyclone, was the deadliest tropical cyclone in the Indian Ocean since the 1991 Bangladesh cyclone, and deadliest Indian storm since 1971.The Category Five storm made landfall just weeks after a category 4 storm hit the same general area. This region account for ~7 % 0.of the total number of global TCs (Gray 1968). The new specified bogus vortex takes the form of a deviation from this environment field so that it can be easily merged with the latter field at the correct position. examine the effect of the cumulus parameterization scheme at high The temperature, height, moisture, wind and vertical motion fields are analyzed for various storm regions. 1. for the two experiments corresponding to all four cyclones. over the tropical land surface at local scales. Juliancolton Tropical Cyclone 01:56, 20 June 2008 (UTC) Actually, I have a solution. Also, the tracks of the The horizontal resolution of the model is 60 Km covering the entire Indian subcontinent. sensitivity of model simulation/forecast to SST, it is not well quantified, particularly for Bay of that RegCM3 is very much sensitive to Tibetan snow. showed greater vertical wind speed as compared to the Holland vortex. PBL experiments includes two nested domains (90- and 30-km resolution), and for MPS experiments includes three nested domains The main objective of the study is to improve model initialization and evaluate the model performance towards prediction of intensity, track, and landfall of these storms. The results from this approach are compared with those from the local diffusion approach, which is the current operational scheme, and verified against FIFE observations during 9-10 August 1987. Four-dimensional data assimilation is performed in order to assimilate the synthetic vortex in the initial stage to the model.Considerable improvement in the track is obtained by using the synthetic vortex. outperformed all the simulations for the intensity, movement, and rainfall associated with the storm. winds occur further away from the storm center than at low latitudes. A control run is presented, which shows good agreement with observations in many aspects. experiments (totally 11 experiments) are conducted to examine the impact of each of the aforementioned parameterization schemes The Weather Research and Forecasting (WRF ARW) model was used to study the structure, evolution, and intensification filling storms; 10) in intense storms the maximum winds occur closer to The track and intensity of the storm is better simulated with the use of satellite-observed SST. Copyright © 2020 The Statesman Limited. The objective of this study is to investigate in detail the sensitivity of cumulus, planetary boundary layer and explicit density of satellite derived wind. The cumulus convective process is parameterized using Kuo's framework. The fourth set contains initial condition sensitivity experiments. 01/03/2005 National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) A succession of severe natural disasters has wreaked havoc in the poverty-ridden state of Orissa. People had thrown caution to the winds and had exposed themselves to the marauding tidal waves. wind, temperature/moisture fields and rainfall. (QSCAT), Special Sensor Microwave Imager (SSM/I) winds, conventional surface, and upper air meteorological observations. It is suggested The inner core structure and evolution of Hurricane Guillermo (1997) over a 120 km by 120 km square area, centered on the storm, was observed by the P-3 aircraft during 10 flight legs at half-hour intervals during a 6-h, It is well recognized that sea surface temperature (SST) plays a dominant role in the formation and intensification of tropical The simulated cyclone with Gr scheme has the The model has been simulated for the period June–August for 1997 and 2002, of which 1997 was an ENSO year and 2002 was a drought year. Analysis of polar diagrams comprising of hourly PPI images taken between 280800 UTC and 290200 UTC reveals interesting aspects of development of this Super Cyclone in terms of waxing and waning of eye Analysis errors were cut by 65% (to 39 km); 72-hour forecast errors fell from 528 km to 394 km and 120-hour errors fell from 818 km to 440 km. Over central India, the HY36 performs better followed by the NH12; and the contrasting precipitation features are also well depicted in the HY36 and NH12. Where all did extreme events cause disasters last decade . The storm produced from WR scheme is the most intensive in the group and closer to the observed strength.

Some statistical results pertaining to all four cyclones are provided Budgets constructed for this layer suggested (when taken with other data) a nonlinear relationship between the drag coefficient and the wind speed, moisture convergence in the inflow layer led to postulated rainfall rates ranging from 0.15 in h−1 in the 40 to 50 n mi annulus to 1.9 in h−1 in the 0 to 10 n mi circle. pattern closely agreeing with the analysis. It is found that the Rankine vortex and Holland’s vortex show the best representation of cyclonic circulation. The It appears that the Sc scheme has some systematic bias and because of that we note a substantial reduction This northwestward movement increases with both the maximum wind speed and the radius of maximum wind in a constant-shape vortex. -from Authors.

A spectral decomposition further reveals that (i) large differences between the model simulation and radar analysis of the asymmetric features are mostly caused by azimuthal phase errors; (ii) the wavenumber 1 component dominates the asymmetric features and remains stationary within the inner core region, as is also observed by airborne Doppler radar; and (iii) although being significantly different from radar analysis, the azimuthal phase of the wavenumber 1 component of modeled reflectivity does not vary greatly with time as the radar data suggest. People of the state capital Bhubaneswar as well as the coastal villages of Puri, Jagatsinghpur, Cuttack and Kendrapara districts who faced the wrath of the extremely severe Cyclone Fani on Friday were drawing comparisons with the devastation caused by the 1999 Odisha Super Cyclone. Only one assumption at a time is changed and tested using a midlatitude environment of severe convection. Some statistical results pertaining to all four cyclones are provided such as the average track error as well as the average difference between the observed and the model minimum sea-level pressure and the maximum wind speed.
