NASA Sees Hurricane Raymond Reborn For A Brief Time
2013-10-28 18:27:37

NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center Tropical Storm Raymond moved away from western Mexico and into warmer waters with less wind shear over the weekend of Oct. 26-27, where it strengthened into a hurricane again. NASA's Aqua satellite captured an eye-opening image of Raymond before it ran into strong wind shear. The Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer or MODIS instrument aboard NASA's Aqua satellite captured a visible image of Hurricane Raymond that showed its eye had re-developed...

Birth Of Thirteenth Atlantic Tropical Depression Shown By NASA Animation
2013-10-21 14:45:42

[ Watch The Video: GOES Video of Tropical Depression 13L ] NASA The thirteenth tropical depression of the Atlantic Ocean season formed today, Oct. 21 and NOAA's GOES-East satellite captured its development. NASA's GOES Project created an animation from the NOAA satellite imagery that shows the depression's development over three days. On Oct. 21 at 11 a.m. EDT/1500 UTC, Tropical Depression 13L was born about 650 miles/1,045 km east-southeast of Bermuda near 28.0 north and 55.1...

Dry Air Caused Tropical Storm Jerry's Demise
2013-10-18 14:31:36

NASA Dry air wrapping around Tropical Storm Jerry wiped out the storm's moisture and prevented thunderstorm development to keep the storm going, "wrapping up" the storm and sending it into weather history. At 11 a.m. EDT on Oct 2 Tropical Storm Jerry's maximum sustained winds were near 40 mph/65 kph. It was centered near latitude 28.2 north and longitude 43.9 west.  Jerry was nearly stationary but was expected to move to the north-northeast and turn east-northeast. Satellite data...

NASA Sees Tropical Storm Octave Makes Landfall In Western Mexico
2013-10-18 08:30:06

NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center Tropical Depression 15-E formed on Oct. 12 at 11 p.m. EDT and strengthened into Tropical Storm Octave. Four days later NASA's Terra satellite saw the weakened storm headed for landfall in western Mexico. TD15-E formed about 470 miles/755 km south of the southern tip of Baja California, near 16.1 north and 110.2 west. By 5 a.m. EDT on Oct. 13, TD15-E became Tropical Storm Octave. Octave's maximum sustained winds peaked at 65 mph/100 kph at 11 p.m. EDT on...

COLLEGE STATION, Texas, Oct. 4, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- With apologies to the Chinese calendar, 2013 might go down as the Year of No Hurricanes or at least very few of them, and without much clout. Credit dry air, but don't jump to conclusions too fast, says a Texas A&M University storm expert.

Heavy Rains And Hot Towers Seen In Hurricane Manuel
2013-09-20 08:08:12

NASA NASA's TRMM satellite passed over Manuel on Sept. 19 at 0116 UTC and measured its rainfall as it was strengthening into a hurricane. TRMM noticed heavy rainfall and some hot towering thunderstorms, which were indications that the storm was intensifying. NASA's Aqua satellite captured an infrared image that showed Manuel was making landfall during the morning of Sept. 19, and at 11 a.m. EDT, Hurricane Manuel officially made landfall near Culican, Mexico. A Hurricane Warning is in...

NASA's TRMM Satellite Animation Shows Tropical Storm Ingrid's Heavy Rains
2013-09-17 13:13:21

[ Watch The Video: 3-D Flyby of Tropical Storm Ingrid ] NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center 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. When NASA's TRMM satellite flew over Tropical Storm Ingrid on Sept. 16, it was drenching the Atlantic side in the Gulf of...

NASA Saw Western Mexico Getting Soaked By Tropical Storm Manuel
2013-09-16 14:24:43

NASA Tropical Storm Manuel was soaking southwestern Mexico while Tropical Storm Ingrid was soaking eastern Mexico on Sept. 16. NASA's Aqua satellite passed over Manuel and the AIRS instrument captured infrared data that showed powerful thunderstorms were dropping heavy rainfall. However, Manuel's interaction with land caused the storm to dissipate on Sept. 16. NASA's Aqua satellite passed over Tropical Storm Manuel on Sept. 16 at 0841 UTC/4:41 a.m. EDT and the Atmospheric Infrared...

GOES Satellite Catches Three Tropical Cyclones in One Shot
2013-09-16 10:53:04

NASA There were three tropical cyclones between the north Eastern Pacific and the North Atlantic Ocean on Saturday, Sept. 14, and NOAA's GOES-East satellite captured them in one image created by NASA. Because Mexico was being hit with Tropical Storm Ingrid and Manuel, both coasts were under Tropical Storm Warnings. The National Hurricane Center cautioned that some areas in eastern and western Mexico may receive up to two feet of rainfall from each storm! NASA's GOES Project at the NASA...

NASA Drones Spy On Hurricanes
2013-09-16 09:56:03

Brett Smith for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online As this year’s hurricane season approaches its peak, NASA has started using two converted, unmanned military spy planes to gather information on weather patterns that might fuel major storms in the coming weeks and months. Both capable of flying for up to 30 hours at an altitude of 69,000 feet, the pair of Global Hawk drones is an integral part of the agency's five-year Hurricane and Severe Storm Sentinel (HS3) Mission dedicated to...
