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...

Friday The 13th Brings Tropical Double Trouble To Mexico
2013-09-13 15:29:17

NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center Friday the thirteenth is known for being unlucky and residents along Mexico's eastern and western coast are experiencing that feeling as a result of newborn Tropical Depression 13E in the eastern Pacific Ocean, and newborn Tropical Storm Ingrid in the Gulf of Mexico. Both storms formed during the morning of Sept. 13. Both storms were captured on one infrared imagery from NASA's Aqua satellite, and both storms have the potential to drop as much as 20 inches...

System 93L Becomes Tropical Storm Ingrid
2013-09-13 15:23:11

NASA NASA and NOAA satellites have been tracking the progression of low pressure System 93L through the Caribbean Sea and into the southwestern Gulf of Mexico over a week's time, and it became Tropical Storm Ingrid mid-day on Sept. 13. NOAA's GOES-East satellite captured an image of Ingrid's center over the Bay of Campeche. NOAA's GOES-East satellite sits in a fixed orbit and covers weather over the eastern U.S. and Atlantic Ocean, providing imagery continuously. NASA's GOES Project at...

Gabrielle's Remnants And New Tropical Storm Humberto Investigated By NASA
2013-09-09 12:53:05

NASA 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. As that storm strengthened, the remnants of the once-tropical-storm Gabrielle continued to struggle near the Bahamas as NASA's HS3 mission investigated. Tropical Storm Humberto is affecting the Cape Verde Islands, so there's a tropical storm warning in up for the southern islands of Maio, Santiago,...

Atlantic Tropical Depression Eight Forming In Southwestern Gulf Of Mexico
2013-09-07 07:52:26

NASA The eighth tropical depression of the Atlantic Ocean hurricane season formed in the southwestern Gulf of Mexico at 2 p.m. EDT on Sept. 6, and NOAA's GOES-East satellite captured a visible image of the storm. NOAA's GOES-East satellite image showed a large circulation associated with Tropical Depression 8 or TD8 after it was officially designated a depression by the National Hurricane Center. The image was created by NASA's GOES Project at the NASA Goddard Space Flight Center in...
