  • hlcater changed the title to NHC Hurricane Specialist Stacy Stewart Retires
Wasn't sure where to put this and there isn't really a place for it, but seeing as Stewart has been around since 1999 and is well known by those who read the discussions, I figured it was newsworthy enough to warrant its own (albeit small) thread.

Wow. That is newsworthy. He and his discussions will be greatly missed.

Tropical Storm Wanda Discussion Number  30
NWS National Hurricane Center Miami FL       AL212021
900 AM GMT Sun Nov 07 2021
 
Wanda is barely hanging on as a sheared tropical storm due to a 
small burst of deep convection located in the southeastern quadrant. 
The initial intensity has been maintained at 35 kt based on earlier 
30-kt ASCAT data being co-located with the new burst of deep 
convection. Little or no change in strength is expected during the 
next 36 hours due to southwesterly vertical wind shear increasing to 
more than 40 kt by 18-24 hours, and sea-surface temperatures 
decreasing to less than 20 deg C beneath the cyclone. In the 18-24-h 
period, Wanda is expected to merge with a rapidly approaching cold 
front currently located to its west, becoming extratropical tonight 
and dissipating over the far northeastern Atlantic on Monday.

The initial motion estimate is now 050/15 kt. There are no 
significant changes to the previous forecast track and rationale. 
During the next 24 hours or so, Wanda is expected to continue  
accelerating northeastward ahead of a strong deep-layer trough and 
associated cold front. After merging with the front system, the 
extratropical low should maintain a fast northeastward motion until 
it dissipates by 48 hours. The new NHC forecast track is very 
similar to the previous advisory track, and lies close to the 
tightly packed consensus track models.

A serious loss. 

I cannot understand why such an enormously talented and skilled individual is not taken up by some meteorological site.

I'd pay to read what this man thinks, suspect others might as well.

Imagine finally retiring and getting to do whatever you want and a bunch of weenies on a weather board come bothering you to start writing forecasts and discussions again

He has his NOAA and Navy pensions.  But yes, he could absolutely do the John Hope/Neil Frank thing and go into television weather.

 

He wrote the pre-landfall in Texas Ike advisory just weeks after returning to NHC from rehab for an IED injury in Iraq that nearly cost him his leg.  He volunteered for combat duty in the Navy reserve, his prior reserve duty, IIRC, was 2 weeks at the JTWC each year.
