Abstract

The role of the vertical wind shear as a weakening factor on the rapid intensity change in Hurricane Lili was analyzed. The rapid intensity change of the hurricane was analyzed using the high-resolution non-hydrostatic, 5 th generation Pennsylvania State University-NCAR Mesoscale model (MM5). The model has captured the characteristics of Hurricane Lili including the wavenumber one rainfall asymmetry. The rapid intensification of the hurricane was found to associate with the eyewall contraction. As the simulated storm was weakened, the radius of maximum wind was found to increase and during the last hours of the simulation the magnitude of the tangential wind was decreased.
