Thought I start a thread to get discussion for our region on the go


Mod edit (added note for future readers): About 7-8 pages of pre-event discussion about TC Linda occurred in the Day-to-Day thread. Starting from around this post


Edited by Seabreeze (15/03/2018 20:15)
Edit Reason: shortened by a day due to cancelled warnings and fine weather expected tomorrow

Thanks Flowin.

As I mentioned the other day, the only way that SE QLD will get anything more than gusty winds and big surf from this is if the approaching upper trough stays back further inland than currently expected and/or if the Linda can move SW faster than expected.
Not to mention the obvious point of any precip becoming confined to the islands and the more exposed parts of the coastal fringe as winds turn more southerly as the system passes by offshore (if that scenario occurs).

Below is the Bureau's track map at time of writing and the current suggestions from the EC, GFS and UK ensembles colour-coded by intensity (light blue = below Cat 1, greens and above = equivalent of Cat 1 winds or stronger).


And if anyone's interested in the Bureau's tech bulletin for Linda:


" Tropical cyclone Linda has steadily developed during the past 24 hours. The
system currently lies under northerly deep layer shear of approximately 15-20
knots, and this is evident in the distribution of deep convection around the
system. There is also evidence of dry air wrapping around the northern side of
the system. Despite this, the system has maintained banding and convection near
the centre through today.

Intensity is estimated at 35 knots [10 minute mean]. Dvorak analysis has used a
curved band pattern averaging a 0.6 to 0.7 wrap during the previous few hours.
DT is 3.0. MET is 1.5 and PAT is 2.0. The final T was based on the DT. This
estimate is supported by the morning ASCAT pass suggested marginal gales
extending through the eastern and southern quadrants.

Movement has been to the south during the past 24 hours under the influence of a
mid level ridge to the east, and trough to the west. During the next 24 hours,
an easterly steering influence will build to the south of the system and it
should adopt a more southwesterly track. On Thursday this influence should break
down again, and the system will be steered predominantly by the mid-level ridge
to the east - first southerly, then southeasterly away from the Queensland
coast.

Development is expected to be slow or nonexistent during the next 24 hours. The
system will move into greater deep layer shear associated with an upper trough
over eastern Australia. The interaction with this trough is expected to cause
the system to lose its tropical cyclone structure and transition into a
subtropical low pressure system later on Wednesday. "

Yes thanks flowin, presently TC Linda has just stepped into Aus AOR and is situated rougly 19s and 159e moving due south. Theres an upper trough to the west of the system steering the system south, it seems this trough will move to it's north and she will adapt a more SW'ly movement while heading into unfavourable conditions to sustain a tropical cyclone. However as this system starts to turn extra tropical another upper trough moves over eastern Aus this could ultimatly steer the Linda or should I say ex Linda by that stage to the SE and away from southern qld coast. We should see some enhanced showery onshore conditions with the combination of the two. It could also get quite breezey as once this system is not so tightly spun the stronger winds could become more broad and not only focused to its core.
Increased swell and beach erosion could also be something to keep an eye on aswell.

I am not seeing anything indicating much rain but won't rule out anything after ex TC Oswald in 2013.
But I do note possible winds, together with reasonably wet ground (some 300 to up to 500mm rain in recent 60 days in more coastal areas) could see trees come down. Also that at this time year a lot of vegetation has healthy growth to catch winds.
Sounds of chainsaws in few days could be likely, if we get winds.

The difference with ex-TC Oswald is that it came down from the NNW hugging the coast (placing us in its savage SE quadrant) whereas Linda or its extratropical equivalent is curving down from the Coral Sea.

Good point Ken, Oswald had the opportunity to drag in rain. This one more likely to limit most rain offshore (if much at all)

Oswald was the most intense system I've ever experienced even though it would not rate against a proper TC. Will never forget that system.

Definitely agreed there Steve, I still remember laying in bed at night hearing the house creaking (we're in a low-set brick house :o).

Gives some perspective on what a real TC must be like.

My ex TC Oswald experience was also more notable than TC Tessi (Townsville 2000). IMO the broader weather context can mean a lot of difference. Current situation quite different to Oswald.

After a few days of lapse in shower activity, last 12 hours or so has seen some return to sporadic rain. Fairly common for sporadic rain in March to April in SeQ.

As I write this, Linda is pretty much no longer a TC with the stronger shear tearing the deep convection away from Linda's low level circulation centre.
Am expecting it to be downgraded to a low very soon after it loses its tropical characteristics.

The most likely scenario (no major impact on SE QLD except for the big surf & gusty winds) still appears to be holding true.

Here's the latest tech bulletin from the Bureau:


" Tropical Cyclone Linda has continued a south southwest path over the past 12
hours. The system currently lies under northerly deep layer shear of
approximately 30-40 knots.

The system is showing the results of interaction with the higher shear, with the
LLCC displaced to the northeast away from the deepest convection. The deep
convection itself has also shown a marked decrease over the last few hours. The
analysis fix is based off an estimate of the LLCC in relation to the deep
convection. Intensity estimated to be 35 knots, with a large swathe of gales
extending well to the south of the system due to the pressure gradient caused by
the system and the ridge to the south. Dvorak analysis has used a shear pattern
with the LLCC less than 3/4 of a degree from the strong temperature gradient
[though noting convection is rapidly weakening]. DT is 2.5. MET is 1.0 and PAT
is 1.5. The final T of 2.5 was based on the DT. CI held at 3.0 given uncertainty
surrounding position of LLCC and weakening phase.

The system will move into greater deep layer shear associated with an upper
trough over eastern Australia during today. The interaction with this trough is
expected to cause the system to continue to lose its tropical cyclone structure
and transition into a subtropical low pressure system early today
, particularly
after confirmation is obtained from visual imagery as to the position of the
LLCC.

Movement has been to the south southwest overnight under the influence of a mid
level ridge to the east, and trough to the west. During today, an easterly
steering influence will likely build to the south of the system, resulting in it
possibly adopting a more southwesterly track. On Thursday this influence should
break down again, and the system should be steered predominantly by a strong
upper trough over Queensland and a mid-level ridge to its east - first
southerly, then potentially southeasterly away from the Queensland coast
depending on the strength of the subtropical low. "


And here's a forecast radar loop for the next 5 days from the HWRF model:

Ken - how do you think the models went for this one?
Would you agree that the eventual track has actually come closest to GFS then any of the others, despite trying to overdevelop Linda too early (it had Linda reaching TC status by Sunday night iirc). The others seemed to want to bring it back towards the CQ coast under the big ridge propagating westward through the CS...less if any trough interaction. I know it's not about which was wrong / right, I just find it intriguing to see how different models perform at different times under different circumstances.

I'll have a closer look when I get more time but one thing I do remember is that GFS was going for that offshore curving away scenario from early on... then from memory, it suddenly did some crazy things like bringing it ashore north of us and dissipating it while it was still well out to sea... while EC started going for the scenario that GFS originally had and then was very consistent with it after that i.e. GFS cottoned onto it earlier, EC then joined it but GFS was erratic while EC was very consistent after it changed to the offshore scenario.

I'd have to go back and check if that was the case though.

If this system does follow that curved offshore scenario, ACCESS-R will have done terribly but that model isn't well-known for having had exceptional performance with TC's in the past.

The top has been knocked clean off now exposing the LLCC.

If looking at the sat pics overnight you might have been tricked into thing the cyclone was moving South but this was the top layer of the storm being decoupled.

The track shown on Meteye is simply the same one as the final official track map for Linda, except it goes out to 5 days.

The official track map is based on models, persistence, uncertainty of initial position/historical track errors and can be manually adjusted.

REMARKS:
The system has transitioned into a deep subtropical low under the influence of strong vertical wind shear and dry mid level air infiltrating the circulation.
The LLCC is now well displaced to the north of any deep convection. The deep convection itself has also shown a marked decrease over the last 6 to 8 hours. A large swathe of gales extends well to the south of the system due to the pressure gradient between ex-Linda and the ridge to the south; surface
observations from Cato Island within this area have been consistently above 34 knots for the past 12 hours, and recently reached 45 knots, and this has been set as the current intensity. Dvorak analysis based on shear pattern with the LLCC greater than 3/4 of a degree from the strong temperature gradient. DT is 1.5. MET and PAT agree. The final T of 1.5 was based on the DT. CI held at 2.5.

The system will remain in the area of strong vertical wind shear associated with an upper trough over eastern Australia, and is not expected to regain tropical characteristics.

Movement has recently been to the west due to a transient interaction with another small low to the north. Later today, the system should move back onto a southwesterly track under the influence of a mid level ridge to the east, and trough to the west. On Thursday the system should be steered predominantly by a strong upper trough over Queensland and a mid-level ridge to its east - first southerly, then potentially southeasterly away from the Queensland coast depending on the strength of the subtropical low.

ACCESS-R hasn't exactly had the best performance with TC's in the past and Linda is no exception.

It even missed the actual position of the LLCC of ex-Linda by hundreds of km in its own analysis run made at 00z this morning (not to mention the fact that it's consistently going for that crazy "approaching the central coast" scenario for days) - these graphics below are courtesy of Weatherzone Layers:

lol Steve.

The shearing won't matter much now since ex-Linda has been torn apart and no longer has a TC structure. Once it loses a lot of its tropical characteristics, TC dynamics don't operate.

At this stage, it still looks like its remains will curve south (and possibly SE) before hovering around erratically off the coast til the weekend as a dying system.
Here's some track guidance which shows the varying steering influences on the low level structure of its remains:

Interesting seeing that Ken.

Did you end up going back to see how EC did over all?
