an intensification rate of greater than 15.4 m s −1 day −1 in V MAX , following Kaplan and DeMaria (2003) . In hindsight, Patricia’s strong intensity was expected, but not the degree to which it would intensify, and it did so rapidly ( Kimberlain et al. 2016 ), given its development in a very favorable environment with high sea surface temperature (SST), high ocean heat content, weak vertical wind shear (VWS), and ample low-tropospheric moisture ( Gray 1968 ; Holliday and Thompson 1979

AMVs outside the cirrus cloud shield to analyze the outer TC vortex wind structure as well as represent the environmental mass influx. In conjunction with AMVs derived from the water vapor channels, the middle-tropospheric moisture flux from the environment to the outer regions of the TC can be continuously monitored. Although the details will not be provided in this model proof-of-concept demonstration, it may be useful to at least describe the expected model physical linkages connecting the
