IFEX daily log

Wednesday, July 20, 2005

Today was another day in Tampa. Repairs were being completed on N43RF, but a 50-hr maintenance was required on Thursday. So the earliest the N43RF could deploy to Acapulco was on Friday. N42RF would remain in Tampa. No ER-2 flights were planned.

Emily was coming ashore today, and Eugene had dissipated. There were no immediate prospects for the East Pacific. A strong wave was approaching Central America, with convection over the land. An upper-level cold low was evident in water vapor imagery in the central Caribbean. This feature was propagating westward, initiating convection on the southern periphery of it. The possible target in the East Pacific is associated with the wave in the western Caribbean, at a longitude of about 85 W. Assuming a motion of about 5 deg/day, this would place the wave at about 95 W on Friday, which would be in range of Acapulco. North of Hispaniola there was a persistent area of deep convection indicating possible development there.
