Hurricane Darby

April 9, 2013
The image above shows Tropical Depression 5E on July 26 before it evolved into Tropical Storm Darby. This daylight image was made with the visible sensor in the AIRS instrument suite. Located in the eastern north Pacific Ocean off the coast of Mexico, Darby is in the upper right-hand corner. Circulation is not apparent because the storm was not organized sufficiently to allow the nascent eye to appear. At this time, winds were approximately 35 mph. In the early morning of July 28th, Darby was upgraded to hurricane status. Credit: Image courtesy AIRS team, NASA JPL
