AVO Great Sitkin YELLOW/ADVISORY - Unrest continues; seismicity remains elevated

USGS Volcano Current Alerts - 4 hours 42 min ago
Dec 12, 2018 22:04 - Low-level unrest continues at Great Sitkin volcano. Small earthquakes associated with the ongoing unrest continue to be recorded on the local seismic network. No eruptive activity was observed in satellite or web camera views of the volcano over the past day. No explosive activity was detected on a regional infrasound array on Adak Island. Great Sitkin volcano is monitored with a local real-time seismic network, which will typically allow AVO to detect changes in unrest that may lead to an explosive eruption. Rapid detection of an ash-producing eruption would be ...

AVO Cleveland ORANGE/WATCH - Unrest continues; small explosion at 11:53 AKST

USGS Volcano Current Alerts - 4 hours 42 min ago
Dec 12, 2018 22:04 - Low-level unrest continues at Cleveland volcano. A small explosion, detected by the local seismic network, occurred today at 20:53 UTC (11:53 AKST). Satellite views of the volcano were obscured by clouds at the time, and no ash cloud has yet been observed. No other significant activity was detected over the past day. The color code and alert level were raised to Orange/Watch. Cleveland volcano is monitored by only two seismic stations, which restricts AVO's ability to detect precursory unrest that may lead to an explosive eruption. Rapid detection of an ash-producing ...

AVO Semisopochnoi YELLOW/ADVISORY - Unrest continues; no eruptive activity observed; seismic data out

USGS Volcano Current Alerts - 4 hours 42 min ago
Dec 12, 2018 22:04 - Unrest continues at Semisopochnoi volcano. No eruptive activity was detected in regional infrasound data, or observed in mostly cloudy satellite views of the volcano, over the past day. Local seismic data remains offline. Semisopochnoi is monitored with an on-island seismic network, though this is currently off-line, and remotely by satellite and lightning sensors. Furthermore, an infrasound array on Adak Island may detect explosive emissions from Semisopochnoi with a 13 minute delay if atmospheric conditions permit.

AVO Veniaminof ORANGE/WATCH - Seismicity has declined, but remains elevated; lava effusion appears to have stopped

USGS Volcano Current Alerts - 4 hours 42 min ago
Dec 12, 2018 22:04 - Webcam and satellite imagery over the past few days suggests that effusion of lava from Veniaminof's intracaldera cone has stopped. However, many small explosive bursts were detected yesterday by the local seismic network suggesting weak activity may have been occurring at that time. These explosions were not recorded by regional infrasound sensors. No explosions have been detected since late yesterday afternoon, and the seismic tremor disappeared around the same time. However, small low-frequency seismic events continue. Veniaminof volcano is monitored with a local ...

Tropical Weather Discussion
NWS National Hurricane Center Miami FL
619 PM EST Wed Dec 12 2018

Tropical Weather Discussion for North America, Central America
Gulf of Mexico, Caribbean Sea, northern sections of South
America, and Atlantic Ocean to the African coast from the
Equator to 32N. The following information is based on satellite
imagery, weather observations, radar and meteorological analysis.

Based on 1800 UTC surface analysis and satellite imagery through
2315 UTC.

...SPECIAL FEATURES...

...Gulf of Mexico Gale Warning...

A cold front is forecast to enter the northwest Gulf of Mexico
from the Mississippi Delta to Tamiahua, Mexico on Thu night, from
the Florida Big Bend to the eastern Bay of Campeche on Fri morning
and move E of area before sunrise on Sat. Gale-force winds are
expected on Thursday night behind the front over the area north
of 25N and west of 94W. These conditions will continue through
Friday evening. Please read the latest High Seas Forecast under
AWIPS/WMO headers HSFAT2/FZNT02 KNHC for more details.

...MONSOON TROUGH/ITCZ...

The monsoon trough extends from the coast of Sierra Leone near
07N12W to 03N24W. The ITCZ continues from that point to 00N47W.
Scattered showers are noted along the ITCZ between 31W-47W.

GULF OF MEXICO...

A 1026 mb surface high is centered over northern Florida and
extending across the basin. Scatterometer data depicts gentle to
moderate anticyclonic flow prevailing across the area.

Fresh to locally strong southerly return flow will precede a cold
front moving off the Texas coast by early Thursday with the front
reaching from the Mississippi Delta to Tamiahua, Mexico on Thu night,
from the Florida Big Bend to the eastern Bay of Campeche on Fri
morning and move E of area before sunrise on Sat. Strong to near
gale force northerly flow west of the front will increase to gale-
force on Thursday evening over the northwest and west-central gulf
waters. Near gale force southerly flow expected east of the front
on Friday. The pressure gradient will relax this weekend with
moderate west flow expected on Sat evening with seas subsided to
less than 8 ft throughout the gulf by sunrise on Sun.

CARIBBEAN SEA...

A weakening stationary front extends from eastern Cuba near
20N75W to 16N86W. Scattered showers are noted along the front. In
the eastern Caribbean, scattered showers are seen south of 16N
between 66W-72W just north of the ABC Islands. The remainder of
the Caribbean is relatively dry. Gentle to moderate trades winds
are noted across the eastern and central portion of the basin,
while moderate to fresh winds prevail south of Cuba mainly west
of 76W.

Fresh to strong trade winds will prevail across the south central
Caribbean with nocturnal pulses to near-gale force off the
northwest coast of Colombia. These winds will expand north across
the entire central Caribbean on Friday. The weak frontal boundary
across the west Caribbean will drift west-northwest and gradually
dissipate through early Friday. A cold front will enter the
northwest Caribbean on Friday afternoon, and dissipate over the
NW Caribbean during the upcoming weekend. Large north swell will
reach the Leewards on Saturday, and spread south through the
northeast Atlantic passages during the weekend.

ATLANTIC OCEAN...

A cold front extends from 31N56W to 24N65W, then becomes
stationary from that point to 20N73W. Scattered showers are noted
along the front north of 28N. To the east, a 1027 mb surface high
is centered near 31N27W and extends across the remainder of the
basin.

The front is forecast to drift back north on Thursday and extend
along 25N on Friday. Fresh to strong winds will develop along
this boundary as strong high pressure moves east across the
northern waters ahead of the next cold front to enter the
west Atlantic waters on Friday night. A strong pressure gradient
between the front and the high pressure will support strong to
near gale southerly return flow north of the Bahamas on Thursday
night and Friday. The front is expected to reach from 31N68W to
the central Bahamas on Sunday afternoon.
