Latest Atlantic hurricane season Stories
NASA's Tropical Rainfall Measuring Mission satellite known as TRMM can compile the rain in which rain is falling as it orbits from space. When it passed over Tropical Storm Ingrid on Sept. 16 TRMM gathered data and it was used to create a NASA 3-D flyby of the storm.
Tropical Storm Ingrid made landfall in La Pesca located in northeastern Mexico on Monday, Sept. 16.
Humberto is the second "zombie" tropical storm of the Atlantic Ocean season.
The MODIS instrument aboard NASA's Terra satellite captured a visible image of Hurricane Humberto that showed it's eye was cloud-filled. Humberto was moving away from the Cape Verde Islands in the Atlantic Ocean.
Two NASA satellites passed over the hurricane in the Eastern Atlantic on Sept. 10 gathering information about the environment of Hurricane Humberto.
Data obtained from NASA's TRMM satellite was used to create a 3-D image of Tropical Storm Gabrielle's rainfall that clearly showed wind shear pushed all of the storm's the rainfall east of its center.
NASA's Aqua satellite passed over the resurrected Tropical Storm Gabrielle in the Atlantic Ocean today, Sept. 10, 2013 and captured infrared data. Meanwhile, one of NASA's Global Hawk unmanned aircraft has set out to investigate the storm and gather data on the storm that reformed south of Bermuda.
Tropical Depression Nine formed yesterday, Sept. 8 in the far eastern Atlantic, and NASA's Aqua satellite saw it strengthen into Tropical Storm Humberto today, Sept. 9 at 5 a.m. EDT.
One hour before midnight Eastern Daylight Time on Sept. 4, Tropical Depression 7 strengthened into Tropical Storm Gabrielle just 70 miles south of Ponce, Puerto Rico.
Tropical Depression 12E formed off the southwestern coast of Mexico at 5 a.m. EDT on Sept. 5. Just 40 minutes before, NASA's TRMM satellite passed overhead and saw some "hot towers" around the center, indicating that the low pressure area that was previously known as System 99E would strengthen.
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...
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...
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...
