For globals lolz, the GFS has 3 TC in the Gulf/Bay of Campeche between now and mid next week.


.

CMC shows even more of a 2020 solution.  Stalls 20 Miles off the TX coast for 3 days, then hits Florida.

The general theme from the models is a lift north for a couple days, followed by a turn to the west and track to near the Texas coast, followed by a stall and turn back east.

New Euro stalls it on the lower TX coast,  then moves it NE to the LA coast. This is similar to what the GEFS is hinting at. That would be a trip...

Sure looks an awful lot like we have a tropical storm near 22.3n 99.5w on satellite to me. 

Would be quite a feat, being inland ;) ... but yeah, it looks like a bona fide TC around 22.2N

The HWRF and HMON keep it sheared and weak.  The euro has a more solid system.

Generally it seems this will stay weak, Biggest concern would be stalling near a populated area on the TX coast.

I'm wondering how fast the Gulf surface waters warm back up after the passage of  tropical cyclone like Sally.  Does a couple of days of bright sun do much in September?   Gulf waters must be pretty well turned up.  Anyone knowledgeable in this area?

Wouldn't it take a while. The heat capacity of water is high so just "a couple of days in the sun"I feel like would not really warm up the waters that much.

Warming up sea surface wouldn't take much time, and usually, more important than sun light is wind. Calm seas, with little churning can sensibly warm sea surface...and low clouds at night to trap some of the low level atmospheric heat would also help. But that would be at depths of no more than a few meters. The heat capacity of the area south of LA is pretty low right now, so I don't think it would recover much in that aspect. A smaller, faster moving system would resent this heat content loss less than a bigger, slower moving one.

Jorge. What’s up man? Hope all is well. I knew 90L would bring you back to us. 

Doing ok...yeah, I have little time nowadays, but Hannah, and now TD22 (and the likes) will always pull the weather weenie out of me ;)

TCHP in the Caribbean is off the charts.

Given the right conditions you could easily see a Patricia type storm there. I wonder what the upper bounds are for intensity and pressure, sub 850 220mph?

Definitely but would most likely have to be a pinhole eye. A system with a larger eye would be harder pressed to find the high wind speeds that Patricia produced.
