The GOES-13 satellite keeps a vigilant eye on the Atlantic Ocean and eastern U.S. and this morning at 5 a.m. EDT it saw System 97L organize into the seventeenth tropical depression of the Atlantic Ocean season. The only catch is that it is actually a subtropical depression, so it is currently known as Subtropical Depression 17 (TD17). A subtropical storm is one where central convection (rapidly rising air that forms thunderstorms) is fairly near the center and it has a warming core in the...

Tropical Storm Nicole was a tropical storm for around 6 hours before it weakened into a remnant low pressure area and is now off the Florida coast. NASA Satellite imagery captured different views of Nicole's clouds as the system weakened back into a low pressure area. While Nicole weakened, a huge trough of low pressure over the U.S. eastern seaboard from Florida to Maine has become the key weathermaker there. The trough, an elongated area of low pressure, is streaming tropical moisture from...

NASA is providing data from three satellites to give forecasters valuable information on newly strengthened Tropical Storm Nicole. Nicole was Tropical Depression 16 until 11 a.m. EDT, Sept. 29 and NASA data helped confirm her new designation. Satellite data from NASA showed frigid thunderstorm cloud top temperatures, heavy rainfall, and extensive cloud cover as Nicole strengthened. The Atmospheric Infrared Sounder (AIRS) instrument uses infrared technology to take a tropical cyclone's...

NASA's Aqua satellite has peered into the cloud tops of System 96L in the western Caribbean early this morning and noticed that they've become colder and higher, which indicated the storms was strengthening and organizing. Just over eight hours later, the new Tropical Depression 16 was born, and now has the potential to become a tropical storm before it merges with an elongated area of low pressure near the Florida late on Wednesday. Tropical Depression 16 was officially named this morning,...

The GOES-13 satellite has been keeping an eye on Tropical Storm Lisa and watched her birth, graduation to depression then tropical storm and back to depression. Now, Lisa has grown back to tropical storm status, but it may be short-lived. At 11 a.m. EDT on Friday, Sept. 24, Tropical Storm Lisa had maximum sustained winds near 50 mph and she may strengthen and weaken over the weekend, but by Sunday colder waters will zap her energy source and she is forecast to be a depression. Meanwhile, on...

The fifteenth tropical depression of the Atlantic Ocean season has formed in the south-central Caribbean Sea, and the GOES-13 satellite captured its swirling mass of clouds and showers in a visible image today. Watches and warnings are already up for Central America. At 2 p.m. EDT today, Sept. 23, Tropical Depression 15 had maximum sustained winds near 35 mph. It was located about 485 miles east of Puerto Cabezas, Nicaragua, near 13.9 North and 76.2 West. It was moving west at 15 mph, and had...

Tropical Depression Lisa has had a struggle, and it appears that she's in for more of the same. Infrared satellite imagery from the Atmospheric Infrared Sounder (AIRS) instrument on NASA's Aqua satellite shows that the convection (rapidly rising air that forms thunderstorms that make up a tropical cyclone) is increasing in Lisa. The convection is becoming a little better organized and stronger which is will make for some heavy rainfall over the northwestern Cape Verde Islands. It's also an...

The GOES-13 satellite may be stationed in orbit over the eastern U.S., but it has a wide field of view from the eastern Atlantic to the eastern Pacific, and today it captured three tropical cyclones in one image. At 1445 UTC (10:45 a.m. EDT) today, Sept. 22, the Geostationary Operational Environmental Satellite called GOES-13 captured Tropical Storm Lisa in the far eastern Atlantic, a developing tropical low in the south-central Caribbean Sea, and Tropical Storm Georgette in the eastern...

Hurricane Igor may be changing into an extra tropical storm and losing his warm core of energy, but he hasn't lost his punch as hurricane watches are up today in eastern Canada. The GOES-13 satellite captured a look at Hurricane Igor this morning, and noticed the storm continues to grow larger and part of that expansion is likely a result of absorbing Julia's remnants. The Geostationary Operational Environmental Satellite or GOES-13 is stationary in its position in space, watching over the...

Hurricane Karl made landfall near Veracruz, Mexico on Friday, Sept. 17 and moved inland over Mexico's rugged terrain, which took the punch out of the storm. As Karl was moving into Mexico, NASA aircraft and NASA satellites were gathering data from this storm that jumped from a tropical storm to a Category 3 hurricane the day before. Karl had maximum sustained winds of 115 mph when it made landfall on Friday afternoon, Sept. 17. That made Karl a Category three hurricane on the Saffir-Simpson...

Debbie formed in the warm waters of the Southeast Gulf and slowly moved northward. Debbie got picked up by the trough which was located to the North of it for a time which allowed it to make the initial turn towards Florida. Once it got near Florida, it got stuck in between the trough and ridge that was back to the west causing the storm to stall in one place or become stationary. This occurred just of the coast of Florida which resulted in a huge disaster for the state. Now Debbie has become...

Tropical Storm Beryl, the second named storm of the Atlantic Hurricane Season 2012, began in advance of the actually start of the season. On the evening of May 25, 2012 Beryl started out as an area of Low pressure off the Southeast Coast with an estimated pressure near 1002mb. Beryl further moved southeastward towards the Florida coast near Jacksonville. Beryl also intensified into a Tropical Storm with winds near 70mph prior to making landfall. In the overnight hours of May 28 just after...

The Loop Ocean Current
2012-07-10 18:20:32

When it comes to learning about the weather it is very important to understand about the oceans. The reason for this is that ocean currents can play a major role on not only weather but also the climate of a region. The current that we are looking at is called the Loop Current. If you look at the image above you can see that it’s situated just off the west coast of Florida and extends into the Gulf of Mexico. The Loop current is a warm current and this creates a warmer surrounding in...

Heavy Rain Batters The Gulf Coast From Louisiana To The Florida Panhandle

GULF COAST UNITED STATES The weekend of June 8-10, 2012 was one of the wettest weekends in a very long time for this region. Thunderstorms and very heavy rain started in the middle of the afternoon on Friday and continued all the way through Sunday Night. An upper level feature began to slide through Eastern Texas towards the Gulf of Mexico and this interacted with a quasi-stationary front that was situated along the Northern Gulf Coast. The two features acted together to create a very...

Location A: This is known as the Eye or the center of the Hurricane/Typhoon/Cyclone. This region is highlighted by the potential for calm winds and also the fact that it’s possible to see the sun or moon during the night. It also gives people false sense that the storm may be done, when in fact it is only at the half way point. Location B: This region is known as feeder bands that outline the center of the storm. In this region you will see very strong winds and also tornadoes and heavy...
