Nadine Weakens To A Tropical Storm Again Seen By NASA
2012-10-02 08:49:31

NASA satellites continue to watch the long-lived Nadine in the eastern Atlantic. Today, Oct. 1, NASA satellite data revealed that Nadine has weakened from a hurricane and is now a tropical storm. Over the weekend of Sept. 29 and 30, Hurricane Nadine dramatically rebounded. On September 19, 2012 Nadine appeared to be dissipating quickly and was expected to become post-tropical but after over a week of meandering near the Azores, Nadine sprang to life again as a hurricane on Friday September...

Tropical Storm Nadine And 2 Developing Lows Spotted By NASA
2012-09-21 14:43:06

NOAA's GOES satellite captured Tropical Storm Nadine in the eastern Atlantic, another low pressure area forming in the central Atlantic, and a developing low in the eastern Pacific. NASA's TRMM satellite noticed that the storms around Nadine's center were waning. On Sept. 21 at 7:45 a.m. EDT, NOAA's GOES-13 satellite captured an image of Tropical Storm Nadine in the eastern Atlantic, and a developing low in the central Atlantic. Nadine is south of the frontal boundary draped across the...

NASA Keeps Eye On Tropical Storm Nadine As Watches Go Up For Azores
2012-09-19 08:03:08

Tropical Storm Nadine is nearing the Azores and watches have gone up for the northwestern group of the islands. NOAA's GOES-13 satellite captured a visible image of Nadine as it continues moving northeast through the Atlantic. On Sept. 18, 2012, a tropical storm watch is in effect for the islands of Flores and Corvo in the northwestern Azores. A tropical storm watch means that tropical storm conditions are possible within the watch area, generally within 48 hours. The Azores are made up of...

Tropical Storm Nadine Explored By NASA's Hurricane Mission
2012-09-17 16:46:48

NASA's Hurricane Severe Storms Sentinel (HS3) Mission is in full-swing and one of the unmanned Global Hawk aircraft investigate Tropical Storm Nadine on Sept. 14 and 15, while NASA satellites continued to obtain imagery of the storm as seen from space. The Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer aboard NASA's Terra satellite captured a true-color image of Hurricane Nadine in the Atlantic Ocean on Sept. 16 at 1345 UTC (9:45 a.m. EDT) while NASA's Global Hawk was flying around the...

New Eastern Pacific Tropical Depression Infrared Identification Given By NASA
2012-09-13 08:38:28

One of NASA's infrared "eyes" is an instrument that flies aboard the Aqua satellite, and it provided data that helped forecasters determine that low pressure "System 90E" strengthened into the eastern Pacific Ocean's eleventh tropical depression. The Atmospheric Infrared Sounder (AIRS) instrument onboard Aqua captured an infrared image of System 90E on Sept. 11 at 1947 UTC (3:47 p.m. EDT). That infrared image took the temperatures of the cloud tops and found some strong, high thunderstorms...

Tropical Storm Nadine's 'Birth' Attended By NASA Global Hawk And Satellites
2012-09-13 07:55:22

Tropical Depression 14 strengthened into Tropical Storm Nadine while NASA's Hurricane Severe Storm Sentinel Mission, or HS3 mission, was in full-swing and NASA's Global Hawk aircraft captured the event. While the Global Hawk was gathering data over the storm, NASA satellites were also analyzing Nadine from space. NASA's Global Hawk landed back at Wallops Flight Facility, Wallops Island, Va., after spending a full day gathering data from the 14th Atlantic Tropical Depression that...

Brett Smith for redOrbit.com — Your Universe Online NASA has launched the part of its Hurricane and Severe Storm Sentinel (HS3) mission designed to study hurricanes in the field this week with the program´s first flight of an unmanned Global Hawk aircraft over Hurricane Leslie in the Atlantic Ocean. The research drone took off from NASA's Dryden Flight Research Center at Edwards Air Force Base in California Thursday and landed at the federal agency's Wallops Flight Facility...

Michael Becomes An Atlantic Hurricane, Wind Speed More Than Doubled Seen By NASA
2012-09-06 13:04:44

The Atlantic Ocean hurricane season spawned two hurricanes this week and NASA satellites have been monitoring them and providing valuable data to forecasters. NASA's TRMM satellite saw very heavy rainfall and powerful towering thunderstorms in Michael when the storm became a hurricane. Michael's wind speeds more than doubled in 24 hours and it is now a major hurricane on the Saffir-Simpson scale. Tropical Storm Michael became a hurricane on Sept. 5 and NASA's Tropical Rainfall Measuring...

Hurricane Leslie's Picture Perfect Moment Captured By NASA Satellite
2012-09-06 12:50:23

NASA's Aqua satellite flew over Tropical Storm Leslie on Sept. 5 during a picture perfect moment, just as it was being re-classified as a hurricane, and captured two images of the storm. The National Hurricane Center issued the advisory confirming Leslie's hurricane status at 1:45 p.m. EDT after examining visible, infrared, microwave and other data from satellites. Two instruments that fly aboard NASA's Aqua satellite provided infrared and visible imagery of Leslie as it was crossing the...

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
2012-07-10 17:50:51

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...
